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


Review

The car is very dependable even in the coldest, wettest weather in the northeast, especially when very cold temps. Starts up without a problem even at 15 degrees. The car handles very well in blizzard conditions.


Best Features

Criuse control, radio sound


Worst Features

Fuel economy

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

I love the look of this car. I love the pickup it has and everything. I wish they would have made the interior a little sharper and the brake dust has got to go!


Best Features

Speed, looks, and it's roomy without looking like a boat


Worst Features

Interior, brake dust

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


Review

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.

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


Review

This car is a fun car to drive. The 5 speed manual is smooth and precise. The 3.0 has a broad powerband and you don't have to be constantly shifting down to keep it in it power range. It will suprise 5.0 mustangs. The car is nice to look at from the outside. I am not crazy about the interior I feel it has to much plastic. I drive 75 miles one way to work mostly driven at 75MPH and get ~27MPG. The R/T is not a family vehicle can get very cramped with 2 adults and a child seat in the back.


Best Features

Broad powerband. Nice looks from the outside. Smooth manual tranny. Handles well with the right tire. Toyo tires seem to work best for me. Starts and runs dependably everyday. Great bang for the buck.


Worst Features

Improved front rotors. I had to replace them at 68000 miles. Both fronts warped. Road noise from the 17" wheels and tires. Better quality plastic in the interior.

Vehicle

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


Review

The Stratus SXT is a fun car to drive with excellent pick up when accelerating. Very comfortable and handles very well on snowy and wet pavement. Some very minor repairs required during warranty period but were promptly repaired by dealer.


Best Features

Good sound system-excellent acceleration-handles well in bad weather-27 mpg highway


Worst Features

Constant brake dust on front rims is brutal-gas mileage in city driving is not great-intermittent whine noise at 65 to 70 mph that has stumped dealer
