1997 Dodge Stratus 4dr Sedan

Review

Bought new in 1996 and we loved driving it. Great interior. Liked everything about it. Then the problems started. Water pump & head gasket (at only 50,000 miles!). Yesterday the fiancee and I met with the florist for wedding flowers; someone asked if that was our silver car with the steam coming out. Yep. Except it was smoke. Two firetrucks later and a completely burned out front end, we're waiting on the insurance. Still, it looks great from behind and the interior remains beautiful -- at least the firewall works.

Favorite Features

The interior. VERY comfortable seats with nice adjustment range. Sweet trunk space. Nice feel on the road.

Suggested Improvements

Add fire extinguisher as standard equipment. Seriously, though, fix everything under the hood.
