1995 Dodge Stratus Sedan ES 4dr Sedan


Review

This car has proven to be a nice and dependable car for using on occasion for the last 15 years. Sure, there may not be many miles on it, but the body and mechanical have held up well. It's remarkable how small this car is compared to its successor cars today. Chrysler needs to make small cars like this again.


Favorite Features

size, visibility, maneuverability


Suggested Improvements

ride is stiff, but this has the performance suspension. Noise level is high compared with today's vehicles.

Review

I drive a '95 Stratus with the 168hp 2.5L 24valve V6 under the hood. The car currently has 162k miles on it! Purrs nicely still. Transmission slips a little(what do u expect after 162k) Only things I have replaced(semi major) Wheel bearings, ball joints, all the way around as do many others.. water pump bearings are starting to go, a little valve lash on hot days..so what! It sure beats a monthly car payment to take care of the issues on your car.


Favorite Features

2.5L 152 ci 24valve V6, An image of the old 3.0's and nicely redone to conserve fuel/economy. Holley Intake (nice touch) Trunk interior


Suggested Improvements

Rear cylinder head sits under upper intake/throttle body area (tisk , tisk )those 3 spark plugs sure get neglected by most people Im sure. Ball joints, ball joints, ball joints! (Chrysler... you know what I speak of) All wheel disc brakes ( Im sure are included on the recent models ex. '05) Good car

Review

bought car with 89 grand on the odo it is a perfect car to hang out with 4 or 5 friends in. it has almost 120K now. very comfortable, heater works fast a/c is promising. i was 16 when i bought it so i punished the 2.5 bad. 1st gear is surprisingly quick for a heavy sedan, but it's not that sporty otherwise. people need to realize that cars don't last forever especially if u treat them bad.my h20 pump was replaced at 105K, which is understandable. rotors up front replaced too. just got new torque converter and 1st gear replaced(i wonder why, maybe it was the frequent redlined rpms) overall i've enjoyed my strat, but i've punished it so it's punishing me.


Favorite Features

comfortable a bit sporty great cooling system, good on highway big car for 4 people to be comfortable,andreasonable for 5. keyless entry. BIG trunk. exterior is good looking,auto (c'mon, who needs a five speed in a heavy sedan, it would just be a nuisance) front airbags, cruise control


Suggested Improvements

nothing wrong with mitsubishi motors (gsx,and 3000gt twin-turbo ring a bell) it could be bigger though.better cup holders, rear windows go down farther, small drum brakes; wears out front discs pretty fast.fuel economy, prolly because of engine internals,i don't even want to look

Review

We bought the car used in Feb. '01 (94K mi). By July we needed to replace the water pump. Around the same time it started leaking a lot of oil and then suddenly stopped. Don't know why. My husband hates the placement of things under the hood. VERY awkward! A few months ago, something around the rear left tire started rattling (it sounds like the car is going to fall apart or something is going to fall off). The air conditioning doesn't work if it's hot outside. The light on the clock works and then it won't. One of the air vents is broken. It's getting to be a lot of little things that adds up to a lot of pain and money. I can't wait to get rid of it!


Favorite Features

The interior is comfortable. Big trunk.


Suggested Improvements

An improvement to this car would be the scrap yard!
