Overall:

I had a 2002 Dodge Stratus R/T coupe with is basically identical with the same features. Very wide turning radius is tricky to get used to. You cant turn very tight. The Mitzu 3.0 is a solid engine with 200 hp. The Sebring Im guessing, is the same noisy car with little sound proofing. Kind of annoying on a long trip. A lot of vibration from the transmission. It also has 5 O2 sensors and one of them always seems to be failing on these. difficult to get to. Power to weight ratio is good. If you are tall, the seats dont go back very far and the brake pedal is tiny. The brakes are also very small on this model and braking distances are suspect. If you purchase this car, your insurance will be high because of the rate of accidents in these. The car sits very low so getting in and out with the very long doors, requires room in a parking lot spot. If someone parks too close, youll have to squeeze in or wait for the other car to move. Gas mileage is fair. sound system is ok if you turn it up to hear it over the buzzing engine right under your feet. This car seems to be built for women and smaller men. Im 5-8 and had the seat all the way back and was still hitting my knee on the bottom of the dash board. Back seats fold down which is nice. I was able to sleep in the car at a rest stop stretching out into the trunk area. Not to bad. The aero dynamics are good on the car. It doesnt get battered around in the wind. Thats my review of this car based on the identical Dodge Stratus coupe.

Cute little car with the same model and color as shown in the tv show “The Office” driven by main character Michael Scott. The car is in near perfect condition without a single rip in any interior or roof. Only 80k miles and has new tires, new battery and new struts and suspension.

I Liked This Car A Lot, Had Fun Driving It. — Overall, we really liked this car. It had great features and options, was large enough to use for more than just riding in, but was a great good looking cruiser too. We would definitely purchase another one in the future. Loved to ride around with the top down. Used to ask my wife if she wanted to go riding around topless (she never did appreciate my humor with that question). Never the less still a really fun car.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Great fun car to drive, above average reliability and maintenance costs.  Kooks great going down the road and was very comfortable.

Cons: Not a great winter car, but that is probably to be expected with a convertible.

Valley Girl On Wheels - Nice To Look At But Very High Maintenance. — Hideous mechanics with even more hideous repair costs. Battery is in a loony place. You have to jack up the car and remove the driver's side front wheel to get at it. Even if you buy a super clean well maintained example, chances are it's a dog in disguise. For the kind of money I've plowed into this car, I could have bought and maintained a Jaguar XJ8. If you're tempted by this car, don't be. If you want a car that will beat you up and steal the contents of your wallet on a regular basis, buy a Jag. At least you'll get mugged in style.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Excellent bodywork quality.Sleek, good looking car. Cabin is tasteful, has good ergonomics and is made of quality materials. Crisp handling, smooth and powerful engine.

Cons: Truly eye-swiveling, window licking insane engine design. The water and oil pumps are INSIDE the crankcase and run off the timing chain. A water pump failure will wreck the engine by fouling the oil if you don't catch it quickly. And if you do, the repair will set you back at least $2,500, as will an oil pump replacement. I know, I've been there.

Standard brakes are really weedy. I fitted cross drilled and slotted rotors along with ceramic pads. That made a big difference, but my wife's 1998 Sable Wagon still brakes better with standard hardware.

If only the mechanics and electrics matched the body and cabin quality!

The front suspension is badly designed and prone to premature wear. Electrics are iffy.

Love May Car — Over all the quality should have been better for the money. I am the original owner and love the car. Car looks like new, but after thousands of dollars in front end work the car still has noise in the front end. I would buy another one because it seats 4 people and ample trunk space.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Great looking and fun to drive

Cons: Brakes aren't great, hard to see out of when pulling out of a parking spot.

The Newer Ones Loose It's Only Benefit Which Was Looks. — good car, but poorly designed for everyday use and repairs. It's low slung design didn't suit boat launches, but it handles extremely well. It was bought used as a stopgap to avoid buying 2 new cars in one year. Thanks

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: - nice looking car, sporty with good handling characteristics

Cons: - it's poorly engineered with it's 2.6l V6 DOHC:
- not designed well for repairs: fuel pump is in the gas tank, battery inside the front bumper, another repair had to have the engine jacked up inorder to access and repair an inexpensive part.
- engine in this car is poorly designed and usually only lasted for about 200k.

Not Bad. — I like the car for being a driver...it's more than a point A to point B car. Handling is great, and power comes on strong for a small 6. Gas miles are almost 30 mpg on trips, and there is plenty of storage. Wish build quality was better so don't compare this car to a Honda. Price was good, but you pay for that price difference later when problems arise. All in all, I like the car but won't recommend it to a friend.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Excellent power, and Trans-Am handling....

Cons: Build quality isn't the greatest, and you do pay for it everytime there is a problem.

Absolutely Love This Car. More Than Any Other Car I Have Ever Even Driven(in The Summer At Least) — the performance is outstanding for a car placing out less than 250HP.. although i think mine is probably pushing close to that now. build quality is mechanically sound. perfectly sound. although my front bumper cracked quite easily haha. the appearance is like sex. i just want to sit and stare at it all day long :). cost of ownership is LOW LOW LOW, im getting 30+ mpg in the summer and around 25mpg in the winter. FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN!

Pros: shifts like a dream

Cons: horrible winter vehicle
