Nice car, but milage stinks
By redpony on
Vehicle
2003 Dodge Stratus SXT 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
Review
The fuel milage is awful. We started out getting 22.7 in town, but the milage has fallen with each suceeding fill up to 16.5. We can only get 25 on the highway. Also on days with a temps over 115 the idle is erratic. The car will almost stall coming a stop. On one very hot 126 degree day the idle jumped to 2000 rpms causing the car to lurch forward almost causing an accident. The dealer can find nothing wrong and says that the Chrysler Eng. Dept. claims this is normal for all Chrysler 4 cyl. engines in hot weather. Chrysler Corp. won't help so I have filed a complaint with the NTSA regarding the sudden engine acceleration problem.
Favorite Features
Clean styling, good power for a 4 cyl., good road manners, roomy interior with more front leg room than my 6'3" body needs.
Suggested Improvements
Chrysler should move all engine and transmisson control computers from the engine bay and away from all that under hood heat.
