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


Review

This is my 2nd Stratus, and for the money it is a great deal. I had only one minor electrical problem with the A/C unit and the dealer fixed it promptly. The car should come standard with window guards as the roofline will leak the water in without them. The seating is very comfy as well as the ride. The sound system is more than adequate for a base vehicle. Fuel economy is reasonable at 25 city/30 highway. it's a nice vehicle for the money. Chrysler cars will be parked in my driveway for a long time if they keep this price/value relationship


Best Features

Smooth ride, nice looks, and dependability


Worst Features

Brake dust...only issue...I, like others, keep my car clean and the design of the wheels is an issue.

2002 Dodge Stratus R/T 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Bought the car as a primary, but quickly picked up a winter beater because I couldn't stand to see my baby in the salt and snow. Have had minor problems (tire bulge from previous owner, rearview mirror lights not working all time) but the good far out- weigh the bad. You can't get a better looking car for the money. It will turn heads...even when its parked!


Best Features

Sleek muscle-car exterior, leather interior, short throw 5-speed, black tint on black with chrome polished wheels (sexy), exhaust note is very pleasant with the v6.


Worst Features

Auto unlocking passanger door. Below average turning radius. Taller forward roofline to see lights w/o use of the sunroof.

2002 Dodge Stratus ES 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

My 2002 ES is fun and reliable. Performance with the 2.7L engine is great and it gets good gas mileage. It also looks sporty with my added spoiler.


Best Features

Performance, reliability, and style


Worst Features

A little more suspension travel and less road noise on oiled and chipped roads. Needs much better high beam headlight system.

2002 Dodge Stratus R/T 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

both exterior and interior are visually appealing. however, had to replace all 4 tires within first 18 months - any impact(gravel, curb) messes the tires up -they are expensive to replace. can't pull up to regular parking spots - front end sits so low it scrapes and eventually can tear and drag


Best Features

17' wheels - make the car look really sharp, interior with leather is so comfortable - have received lots of compliments. you feel like you are in a cockpit


Worst Features

TURNING RADIUS - can't say that enough. the turning radius stinks. also, need to have the driver-side seat lift up just a bit higher - 5'2 and i can't see the front end of car. passenger door should unlock when car stops. should be able to leave car running & lock doors with extra set of keys.

Review

For the most part I have never had any problems with this car. I just never really enjoyed the ride and handling, especially for this to be a sport coupe. This car is not a great handler.
