Review of the 2002 Dodge Stratus

  • Dodge offers a stylish and sprightly alternative to the mainstream models in this segment.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Exceptional value, attractive shape, fun to drive.

    Doesn't have the build quality/reliability reputation of Japanese competition.

All Strati gain a "battery saver" device and new audio features. For coupes, a stereo with a four-CD in-dash changer is available in the Touring Package and is standard on the R/T model.

Happy driver

Vehicle: 2002 Dodge Stratus R/T 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 5M)

Has been a very good car, 65,000 so far. Will buy another one. Its fun, good fuel economy, reasonably fast, looks good, been reliable. Is holding its looks well. Has been much more fun with a set of Contis on it versus the OEM tires. Great in the MI snow.




Fun to drive

Vehicle: 2002 Dodge Stratus R/T 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 5M)

The R/T package on the Stratus has one of the best handling suspensions I have ever driven. The 2.7 liter engine has very nice performance for this class. I find the interior design well thought out and attractive, much better than any of the Japanese cars I have been in in this class. My car gets driven pretty hard and in some pretty atypical conditions, but it has never let me down.




Best car i ever bought

Vehicle: 2002 Dodge Stratus R/T 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 5M)

I love my 2002 Stratus R/T, it is hands down the best car I ever bought. I drive around town and everyone's head turns to look at it. Outside and in, its style is flawless. It handles great, corners like a dream and can stop on a dime. If you purchase this vehicle, I highly recommend you get it with the autostick feature. Autostick really helps in highway driving, plus its a lot of fun on windy country roads. The sound system is top-notch for a stock system. Well I hope what I've said helps people out who are looking for a great car at a affordable price. I can honestly say that you won't be let down by this automobile, I haven't been!




Unbelievable!!!

Vehicle: 2002 Dodge Stratus R/T 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 5M)

I bought this car after owning a 97 Avenger ES Coupe. I thought that car was great. This one is 10 times better than that one. It has a very fast 2.7L V6 Magnum engine. The handling is the best I have driven in a car (and that includes the BMW 3 Series). There is plenty of room in the trunk and in the interior. Great styling and an awesome ride all for under $25K.
