2004 Dodge Stratus SXT 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

The Dodge Stratus is a nice car, but when it comes to it being the all around vehicle I wouldn't own another one. And trust me it's no fun climbing out of your own vehicle anymore. I should have bought a truck.


Best Features

The body is the only favorite part of the car that I really like. The wheels need to be a little more fancy on a coupe.


Worst Features

Build a better car that lasts when it come to tires, struts, rotors and brakes. The 4 cylinder has a poor design

2004 Dodge Stratus SE 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this car with only 200 miles on it, i love it. It hits high speeds and handles like you would not believe. The only problem I found was that it stalled but that was fixed buy replacing the sparkplug wires and replacing the plugs with platinum plugs. Also use semi-synthetic oil. Otherwise it works great.


Best Features

Awsome sound system. Roomy and affordable.Powerfull 0-60 in 8 seconds on a bad day. Lots of fun to own.


Worst Features

Security system, tinted windows, window deflectors, supercharger...for playtime. Aftermarket reciever makes the stereo sounf even better.

2004 Dodge Stratus SXT 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

After it was one year old, things started going down hill. We're now getting electronic and mechanical work done on it before the "new" warranty runs out, then we plan on trading it in before it's too late. It could just be my car, but there's definetly problems with it and I think a recall needs to be made on the rear barrings, etc. I'm about to bring it to the dealership for the 4th time and they still can't fix the problem. Next time we'll visit Honda or Toyota.


Best Features

Comfy seats.


Worst Features

Check into any needed recalls regarding the rear driving performance.

2004 Dodge Stratus R/T 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I've had my Stratus R/T now for 6 months. Plenty of horsepower and still get 30 mpg on the highway. I got mine fully loaded w/ auto-stick, moonroof, leather, infinity sound, chrome wheels. I get a lot of nice car compliments. Dodge did a great job with this car.


Best Features

Auto-stick, Infinity sound system, 200 hp, huge trunk.


Worst Features

Backseat is tight for 2 adults. Fog lights should turn on with main headlights, no need for a seperate button.

2004 Dodge Stratus R/T 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This is my second Stratus. This time I took all the options. The car is a reliable car, it is comfortable, the sound system is great, and it is so fun to drive with the V6 and the 17" wheels. It is pretty spacious inside, and the trunk space is generous (particularly with the fold down rear seat). It's not a Mercedes or BMW, but it's a good car for the $19K +/- I paid ($26K sticker).


Best Features

Sunroof, sound system, good visibility.


Worst Features

There is some issue with engine kick when you come to a stop on occassion, really wish they could fix this. Little A/C comes out of side vents.
