1997 Dodge Stratus 4dr Sedan

Review

In my family, we now have two Stratuses, both '97's, both 2.0L and five-speed stick. Mine is Forest Green Metallic and my father's is Light Silver Fern Clearcoat. They are great little cars, cheap, peppy and safe. My father has 230,000 miles on his, and he's only replaced the infamous head gasket, the rear main seal (and consequently the clutch), and a left wheel bearing assembly. His car still gets 35-37 MPG on the highway. I just bought mine today, we'll see if mine turns out as well as his has.

Favorite Features

Strong, weighty clutch Great brakes Suspension/Handling Reliability

Suggested Improvements

Offer the same five-speed manual with the V6 Find a better place for the rear cupholders Fix the head gaskets!
