1995 Dodge Stratus 4dr Sedan


Review

Bought this car with 50K miles on it.
I've had to replace the oxygen sensor 3
times (engine light stays on), and the
electical system goes out where the
radio, heat/ac and lights don't work.
If I stop and turn the car off and then
back on, it's restored. Otherwise, it's
been a great car. It was cheap and
great in-between car. It looks great,
people always think it's newer than it
actually is.


Best Features

Trunk space, how new it looks, easy maintenance.


Worst Features

Fix the electrical & sensor problems.

Review

The first years of my ownership were
great. No problems were encountered,
that came out of pocket, except the
Catalytic convertor. Gas mileage was
terrific, friends love the roomy
backseat. My car has 130k miles,the
last 20k miles have been terrible.
Brakes are eaten like candy (especially
front ones) and Dodge wouldn't fix them
although there was a recall. Head
gasket replaced and the oil has leaked
for the past 60k miles. To many other
problems to mention. I would not buy
another Chrysler or Dodge, unless it
was a truck. Where is the battery
placed, terrible ideal..


Best Features

Roominess is terrific, so is gas mileage still at 130k miles.


Worst Features

Placement of the battery. Rearview mirror placement. Better brakes. Interior material needs to be better - too plasticky.

Review

We have put over 127,000 miles on this
dependable car in over 8 years of fun
driving. It is the base model so
there are not many features on it, but
it is still fun to drive. We have not
put any money into it except for the
usual (brakes, tires). It is been
used by our teenagers for the last two
years and even with them driving it,
it has held up well.

Just yesterday someone who was driving
a 2002 Stratus asked us if our 1995
Stratus was a 1999 model. It is still
lokking good. I just hope it makes it
through my teenage kids.

Review

I bought the car the 1st year it came
out . It was attrative and cheap.
problem is that the designers designed
it so fast they did not pay attention
to the engine. $800 head gasket
replacement. Would I buy another
Stratus, maybe ..A couple of drinks
would help with the decision.


Best Features

Design, peppy engine


Worst Features

Engine, engine, interior fabrics and interior materials
