Stratus Beats Taurus
By dhermesc on
2004 Dodge Stratus SE 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)
Started out looking for a 2003 or 2004 Ford Taurus (to replace 99 Taurus as family car). Had not had good experience with Ford dealerships in my area (lousy service, ever wonder where the term "stealership" came from?). Had Impala for company car - only drive it because its free. Test drove the Stratus - quieter then the Taurus, more back seat room for the 2 & 5 year old but just a little narrower. Good power for passing on the two lane roads in my area (especially compared to the Vulcan engine the Taurus). The interior of SE seemed a little plain but good enough to haul (and clean up after) the curtain climbers. Otherwise well equipped with keyless entry, CD and power seat.
Favorite Features
PRICE!!!! Purchased a 2004 with only 11K for $10,500, couldn't get an 04 Taurus that low. The 2.7L has excellant power for this size of car.
Suggested Improvements
Just learned of the 2.7L "sludge" problem, am using synthetic oil which seems to correct the problem. Also having it changed at the dealer to ensure warranty. Did they really need to mount the light switch on the blicker arm too?
