I have driven this car since I drove it off the lot in Oct. 2005. A former rental car, it had a couple stains in the back seat and around 27k miles on it. Since then I have driven it around 80k miles with no problems at all whatsoever except regular maintenance. One bit of advice - be careful of curbs and potholes because I have ruined some tires/control arms doing this. It is quite low to the ground. Having been told "don't buy American" I was hesitant to buy it, but I am so pleased with this car! I will drive it until it dies.
4-disc in-dash CD player with awesome sound. Fun to drive - drives like a sports car.
I recently bought my first car, a 2005 Dodge Stratus R/T coupe (No Automatic Option On Website) with the 4 speed auto with the auto-stick option. When I bought it there were only 109,100 miles. The performance is great and you can even spin the tires in the manual mode. One minor flaw I noticed was that if you have long legs like I do, when you make a turn the cruse control setup hits your leg. Other than that it was the best possible car for me and haven't had and issues with it besides a few burned out bulbs. I highly recommend this car to anyone.
We have owned this car since it had 21,000 miles and was a good car till about 30,000 then the injectors started going one at a time. It was under warrenty so took it to local dealer to be fixed they would only change one at a time as they went out so was back four times before it was done. Now car has about 70,000 and is having shifting problems it will downshift for no reason even at highway speeds which can't be good for the engine or trans. Have had it to dealer not under warrenty anymore so costs 99.95 every time for them to test it only to tell me nothings is wrong. What a joke my advice is if you have this car dump it before you reach 70,000
Bought this car with 36k on it from Hertz Car Sales in Pasco.
They say they have a money back guarentee for 7 days...I call BS on that.
I took it back to them as it was making a noise, they couldn't hear it so they wouldn't honor it.
It has had nothing but problems since day 1!!
Bad mileage, small breakdowns etc and NOW, my crank is bad and it is going to cost me a new engine.
Just turned 100k.
I hate this freaking car, and I hate Hertz Car Sales.
The look of the outside, the comfort of the inside IF you are the driver only.
The passenger side is very uncomfortable
Mine's actually an SXT 2.7 V6, not an R/T V6, but Edmunds didn't have an entry for SXT 2.7 V6...
Anyway, I bought this car used in June of '06, and have enjoyed it every day since. It has a very sporty feel, handles well, and is built pretty well overall.
Factory sound is amazing - it sounds like you have a 8 inch sub in the trunk.
Cupholder location and materials quality could use help; the interior looks like plastic no matter how you dress it up.
