2001 Dodge Stratus R/T 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
Overall has been a pretty solid car. Handles well and has good acceleration. Had to get rid of the Goodyear Eagles, replaced with Potenzas and hydroplaning and winter driving vastly improved. Had to replace EGR solenoid at 50,000, rt front wheel bearing at 100,000 and rear sway bar links but has been very reliable throughout my 6 yrs with it. Paint and body have held up very well. Took it to the Dodge dealership for the EGR light and they had no idea what to do w it. Drove over to the Mitsu dealer and they fixed it in 30 min.
Good acceleration and looks sharp. Only minor problems in 130,000+ miles.
Definitely get rid of the Goodyears, they are awful. Mechanics are baffled by it when it comes in because they think its a Dodge but its all Mitsubishi under the sheet metal. Suspension feels kinda cheap and interior has vast seas of hard black plastic.
