Been a good car for us.
By Udslash on
1998 Dodge Stratus 4dr Sedan
We bought this car after we returned
home from overseas/ARMY. Paid 8K for
it used with 33k miles. It has been a
great reliable car! At about 50k miles
the main rear seal/head gasket had to
be replaced. It was under warranty
though..so no big deal. While living
in L.A. I replaced the brake pads 6
or 7 times from freeway driving plus I
had to have my rotors respun twice &
then replaced. HORRIBLE brakes
obviously. You definately need to buy
high performance/carbon metallic to
keep pads on this car for any length
of time. Car has been from Miami to
L.A. & back. + towed a U-haul trailer
from Dallas to Miami. 130,000 miles
to date...still going!!!
Reliability, smooth engine, plenty of
room for passengers & driver,
Brakes, Brakes, Brakes!!
And what's up with those cupholders?
