1996 Dodge Stratus ES 4dr Sedan


I have only had this car for just over
a year and I have had HUGE problems
with it. It was back at the dealership
5 days after it was purchased because
it was leaking transmission fluid.A
year later, the same thing happened my
transmission leaks only this time when
it goes in for repair at a Dodge
dealership, they find that I'm also
leaking oil. Now my engine is burning
oil internlly and I need a whole new
engine!!!!!!! Fortunately for me I
bought an extended warranty that will
(hopefully) cover the cost of the new
engine and transmission repair.I found
out that this model year is well known
for transmission problems as well as
head gasket problems.

Best Features

Gas milage is excellent very roomy car and trunk

Worst Features

Wiper speeds are from intermittant to slow to fast, there is no "in between". Cup holder doesn't hold a bottle of soda or any large drinks. It's in an akward place too and you have to look down to make sure your drink is in properly which isn't safe.
