Review of the 2003 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.

  • Cons

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

  • What's New for 2003

    The 2003 Stratus coupe gains revisions to its front and rear styling and an updated instrument panel and center console. The SE coupe is dropped in a sense; it will only be available to fleet buyers, such as rental car agencies. Sedans continue as before except the SE Plus is subtracted and the V6 engine (with the automatic transmission) is now flexible fuel-rated, meaning it can run on ethanol as well as gasoline.

Great car for the money

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Dodge Stratus ES 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

Traded in a 99 Breeze with 83,000 miles for this Stratus 4 cylinder ES used with 19,000 on it.So far its been a Great car. Some minor adjustments like noisy wiper blades and excessive wind noise from the drivers door.I will have to go back to have this fixed again as they adjusted the door, but its still there. Also need to get corrected a noisy wine from altenator. Otherwise it rides smooth and fairly quiet.




Excellent middle of the road

Vehicle: 2003 Dodge Stratus ES 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)

Realize that this is not a performance car, so performance gets an "average." Comfort-wise, the seats are cushy, and the steering wheel feels good--not cheap. Fun to drive? Not particularly. Interior is well thought out, very simple. The styling of the exterior is pleasing to my eye, especially the shorter windows. It has a kind of "meaner" look to it than its predecessor. As for reliability, it always starts up as soon as the key is turned--no delays. I've never had a problem with my 1999 Stratus, and I sure don't expect to have too many problems with this one.




Outstanding

What a great car - I have never been as happy with a purchase as I am with my Stratus. It's powerful and fun to drive and has more room than most other sedans, esp. in back seat and cargo areas.
