This is just a great vehicle. I just
have the SE model, so I don't have all
the goodies, but nontheless it performes
great. The gas mileage is good, runs
quiet with just a little road noise. It
handles well and the 4 cylinder is peppy
and made for the do-it-yourself
tune-ups. The engine warms up
unbelievably fast and the heater will
blow you away. But the A/C could be a
little colder. You can use your cup
holders without your cup getting in the
way of anything. The seats are
comfortable even on long trips. Use
semi-synthetic oil, I find that it
improves mileage and smoothness in this
engine. Don't use high priced brake
pads. Just use the cheap semi metallic
pads or it will eat your rotors.
The looks, the ride, the comfort, the
dimming interior light and the speakers
sound awesome. Not to mention the good
gas mileage. The trunk is HUGE!!! The
triger like button on the gear shift
Brakes. Colder A/C (it'll keep you cool
though). Window deflectors, if you wash
your windshield or if it's raining and
your window is cracked or down.... it's

I didn't want a sedan initially, but I
am very happy with the styling and
solidity of the car.It could use a few
more amonites, but other than that we
are happy wih our purchase.
Color, interior and out. I like the
power of the engine. It has a lot of
pickup and go . Granted, we are new
owners, so I can't yet respond to
reliability. But the engine is quiet
and the ride is too. I am 5"4, so I
really like that the seat belts in the
front are adjustable.
Added cup holders, lighter in an

I went looking for a Extended Cab
fullsize pick-up when I saw this baby
sitting in the showroom floor. I
couldn't help but look it over. I
didn't really know that Stratus came in
a 2 door, but had to have it well
before I even drove it. After driving
it, there was no way I could leave with
out the car. It's a large enough car
to not feel cramped inside, and still a
very sporty car that gets some serious
attention all passer-bys.
peppy, yet fuel efficient, 2.4L engine;
Automatic shifter is great. I traded a
98 Escort 5 speed on it, and I'm still
trying to change gears in this one.
I think with out many changes, putting
aside a larger engine, this could be
Dodge's competition the Ford Mustang.
I bought this SXT for interstate
commute (mpg) and was't dissapointed.
Handling is crisp, passing is
effortless,and cruising at 3,000 rpm
could get you a ticket. Short throw
shifter is excellant. My car is black
with 5 spoke alloys and never fails to
get those appreciative stares.
Short throw shifter, 4 disc cd changer,
cavernous trunk space, and great
looking body style.
Slightly stiffer front suspension,
better placement of front cupholder,
and this car would have no drawbacks.
