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


I had a '97 Stratus pretty stripped down right out of college (purchased brand new). The car had decent performance, front wheel drive & all I wanted in a really attractive price & I had a relatively trouble free experience with that car. With 100,000 on that Stratus, I needed to break down and buy a new one. I looked at everything particularly the Altima, Mazda6, Passat, and of course the Stratus. While I really loved the Passat GLX, I really could not be convinced to pay $10K more for the Passat. The Stratus R/T came with a nice engine (though not nearly as powerful as the Altima, but hey, my dragracing days are over), and plenty of features.

Best Features

Exterior styling, 7/70 powertrain warranty, sunroof, digital compass and outside temp display, & price of course

Worst Features

"classier" interior (take some lessons from the Passat GLX), slightly stronger engine would be nice
