1996 Dodge Stratus ES 4dr Sedan


This vehicle is by far the worst that
I've owned. From the undersized rotors
that need to be replaced annually, to
the leaky engine, this car never ceases
to need service. The 4-cylinder engine
is notorious for head gasket failures
as I've had to have the dealer-replaced
head gasket replaced yet again. Also,
the oil galley plug, also originally
replaced by the dealer, leaked again.
I've also had to replace the rear motor
mount since the oil ate away at the
rubber parts. I also have to contend
with yearly rotor and brake replacement.

Not only was the car poor to begin
with, but each of items replaced by the
dealer failed again. This vehicle is

Best Features

Head room. Decent power.

Worst Features

How about an engine that retains its various fluids for longer than a year? What dunderhead designed a car that needs to have its rotors and brakes replaced yearly? The folks at Dodge should hang their heads in shame over this real piece of junk.
