Nice Car, Bad Engines
By Bob Nolan on
Vehicle1998 Dodge Stratus 4dr Sedan
ReviewThis car is a great car for anyone who would like to own one, put few miles on it each year, and sell it prior to 60,000 miles. Chrysler should be shot in the head for using the crappy engines (2.0 and 2.4l engines) in these cars. After 60,000 miles, trade it, sell it, whatever, just get rid of it. A head gasket leak will turn into a $3,000 repair in no time. Other than that, great response, great handling, and an all around economical car in a good package.
Best FeaturesVery nice stock sound with the premium package. Cab-forward design makes a tall fat guy like me comfortable in it. CAb-forward design makes folks in the back seart comfortable too.
Worst FeaturesEngines need to last more than 60,000 miles. ALso, the passenger seat is slightly uncomfroatble, as it does not cradle the occupant in any way. The trunk lid is more like a hatchback than a sedan.
