I bought my Dodge Stratus Coupe brand spanking new! It was one of the best decisions I've made! Those who have had problems with theirs are probably driving it like its a four wheeler. Mine always gets regular oil changes & etc. I heard after 60,000 miles the transmission goes out...uh NO, NOT TRUE AT ALL. You should keep an eye on it after that amount of miles but as long as you TAKE CARE OF YOUR CAR like you should you shouldn't have any problems! I have 106,000 miles on mine and its still running great!As far as the appearance some paint damage from too much sun exposure.
Rides as smooth as it did brand new now with 106,000 miles on it. Factory speakers have awesome bass!Very easy to maneuver. Large trunk and so much more.
