2002 Dodge Stratus SE Plus 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I loved my Dodge Stratus - the reason I say "loved" is because I'm about to sell it to my brother. I'm upgrading to an SUV with 4 wheel drive, but if I wasn't, I would keep my Stratus. I also owned a 98 Dodge Stratus before I was in an accident and totalled it out, but my first choice was again, another Stratus. They are great looking, smooth confortable rides, good fuel economy, great get up and go and overall fun to drive. I never once had any maintenance issues with either Stratus I owned. I only had regular oil changes and that was all I ever had to do - these are great cars!


Best Features

Power driver's seat, trip computer with compass and external temp, V6 engine, but with great fuel economy, reliablility, no major maintenance problems


Worst Features

They should have brought back the heated side mirrors on the newer models like I had on my '98.

2002 Dodge Stratus SE Plus 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I've had this car for about two years
and have found it to be a good
combination of sport car "fun-to-
drive" and sedan practicality. Power
and braking are excellent. It's loaded
with options. The quality of
construction is outstanding - no
squeaks or rattles and everything
works as it should. I have yet to take
it in for anything more than routine
maintenance. A great value for the
money- about $15000.


Best Features

Body style, alloy wheels, CD stereo system, four-wheel disk brakes, fold- down rear seat.


Worst Features

A bit more head room would be nice, otherwise, there's nothing left to be desired.

Review

THE ASSISTED BRAKING FEATURE TAKES A
LITTLE WHILE TO GET USE TO. I AM NOT
CRAZY ABOUT. IT FEELS AS THOUGH THE
CAR IS JERKING. I CANT TELL IF I AM
DOING IT OR NOT. THE GAS MILEAGE IS
NOT BAD AT ALL. IT MAKES AN UNUSAL
HUMMING NOISE WHEN ENGINE IS COLD. WHEN
I BOUGHT THE CAR IT ONLY HAD 10 MILES
ON IT NOW WITH 9800 MILES IT STILL
RIDES THE SAME JUST ABOUT.


Best Features

THE POWER DRIVER SEAT IS MATCHLESS. I LOVE IT.


Worst Features

FOR NOW I DONT HAVE ANY COMPLAINTS. BUT I AM SURE EVERYONE WOULDNT MIND A LOWER COST. IF THE CAR ISNT MADE TO LAST AS LONG AS THE HONDAS, TOYOTAS AND SUCH IT SHOULDNT COST AS MUCH.

Review

I had less then 36,000 miles on my car
and the heat and air conditioning
stopped working. The car gets a moldy
smell that I have brought back to the
dealer 5 times for and they can't
figure out what the problem is. The
break sensor started going off 3 months
into ownership and I have had the
breaks looked at and now replaced but
the light continues to go on around
corners. The guy at the dealership
says we can disconnect the fuse-great
what happens when there is a real
problem.

The car


Best Features

looks sharp when clean-rims sparkle


Worst Features

seats are like bricks

Review

I have had my stratus for only one
year. All i drive is highway miles,
the easiest miles on your car. Well,
now that my warenty is almost up i have
had to replace the tourq converter, and
the front tie rods. What else is going
to break once my warrenty is up? All
i have been hearing now is how cheap
dodge has been making their cars. I am
starting to beleive it. I wont buy
another chystler product.
