2001 Dodge Stratus R/T 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
No major repairs required since I've owned it. Purchased w/ about 43K miles. This car has served me an awesome time, again and again. The most problems I have had, had been with the front end (bearings, breaks, turn signals...), but maybe b/c mine is a rebuilt title? All fixed and drives so smooth! Cruises nice around 70mph. Manual trans. is the only way to go! Very fun, especially to watch people look at your car take off scratching their heads???
-Torque/pull! Passing and taking off is a breeze & fun. -Shifting. Shift at about 3K, and fairly quickly; it will fade without notice into the next gear. -Pwr/Leather seats. Comfy! -Performance/fun to drive! Very fun daily driver. -Exhaust. Awesome stock sound. -Sleeper (rip R/T badges off.. ?? :)
-Rotors warp easily, but are easy/cheap to get resurfaced. -Inside cabin noise annying at times. Just turn on the radio ;) -3 point turn. It's like trying to turn around a truck! -Engine tick on warm up. 3.0 engine is notorious for this! Although it hasn't effected perf. and has never gotten worse.
