Great sleeper car
By Komomo on
2003 Dodge Stratus R/T 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
Bought this car with 35K miles on it in a great-looking rare steel blue color. The car looks great, sounds just as good, has a quick, well-placed shifter and is much quicker than you'd expect given the specs. My only significant complaint is that it is unforgivable for a car like this not to have ABS standard. Also a trip computer would be nice (rented a much cheaper PT Cruiser once that had a very good trip computer. Go figure.). Still, the overall driving experience is unparralled at the price, and it is the only American vehicle in this class (coupe versions of Grand Am/G6, Alero, Accord and Camry, but Mustang is a different type of car) to offer a manual with a V6. Shame on GM, bravo Dodge!
Engine performance and sound. Coupe styling and ergonomics, esp. shifter location/feel. Power moonroof and CD changer, big trunk and versatility of fold-down back seats for this type of car.
Should have made ABS standard! Would have really liked to have a trip computer.
