Dodge Stratus: Built to be a Rental Car
By turtledude558 on
2001 Dodge Stratus SE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
This car is BLAND. Nothing's gone wrong for the time that I've owned it, but there's just nothing special about this car. Exterior is anonymous and blends in with other cars and the interior feels cheap. Fuel economy is weak and power from the V6 is only adequate. Ride is decent when on smooth surfaces. Car's composure is easily lost when driving over bumps. Annoying high-pitched noise can be heard when depressing the accelerator (but not accelerating hard).
V6 engine (can't imagine having to live with the 4-cyl if the V6 is the "upgrade"), trip computer, CD player.
Door handles (there's no discernible "click" when you pull it open so it feels all soft and spongy - leaves you with the idea of low quality before even driving it). Better ride. Better fuel economy. Cup holders closer to the driver. Interior that gave off some impression of quality.
