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


Review

Bought my car a little over 6 months
ago and have no major issues.
Great "pick up and go." The Infinity
stereo system is awesome. Have the
same issue as a previous post though;
the CD player does skip some, but only
if I've left a cd in it over night then
started playing it the next day.
Simply ejecting the disk and putting it
back in fixes this problem. The
biggest irritant is the odometer is off
by about 3 to 5 percent. It is gaining
miles faster then I have traveled which
is shortening my warranty and lowering
my trade-in value. But I normally keep
a car until it has very little value
left anyway, so this is not too big an
issue.


Best Features

5 speed transmission and soft leather upholstery


Worst Features

Make it easier for backseat passengers to get in and out of the vehicle from driver's side.

thought twice before getting it, we
have two young toddlers. No room!


Best Features

The turning radius is terrible. The seats could be more comfortable. Space is terrible inside, not the trunk. White panels.

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


Review

I went in to buy a 2003 and found the
last 2002 on the lot. Had all the
options I didn't want, but because it
was last year's model I got a good
price. Overall a very nice car. Good
acceleration, quiet, solid
feel, a stiff but not harsh ride, quick
steering response, and not bad on gas.
The automatic (the one item I really
DIDN'T want) is a little sluggish, go
for the manual if you can find one.
Turning radius is not as tight as I
expected. So far no problems, except a
weird unidentified and intermittent
noise from the rear when starting.


Best Features

With the leather accessory package, I got the automatic dimming rearview mirror, fog lights, single CD, built-in automatic garage door opener. Back seat and trunk are very roomy.


Worst Features

Sluggish automatic lags when you step on it. Stepping on the gas uses up a WHOLE LOTTA GAS. Visors don't offer enough shade, rear visibility hindered by high rear deck, 2nd front cupholder only accessible with the console open, and temperature too warm or too cold.

2002 Dodge Stratus Coupe SE 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I have a 2 DR SE model and it is
awesome! Not only does it turn
heads with it's sleek exterior, it has
the performance to back it up. (V6,
200 HP). The car handles like a
foreign sports car, very nice ride.
Definitely recomend.


Best Features

Interior design, performance, exterior design.


Worst Features

Offer an alloy wheel on the SE model standard. Get rid of the hubcaps.
