1996 Dodge Stratus ES 4dr Sedan


The Stratus was my dad's first car. At
about 3-,--- miles it needed a new
head gasket, needed another head
gasket at 66,000. nearly everything
started needing replacement at 60,000.
It is noisy. We had the 2.4l and it
only got 20city/29 high. that's pretty
bad. There is a lot of torque in the
engine and so so horsepower, 150 to be
exact. The catalytic converter went
bad at 66,000. steering column and
wheel bearings needed replacement at
around 64,000. iterior plastics were
hard and cheap. steering wheel
vibrated when idling.

Best Features

cabin space, and good engine power and good stereo

Worst Features

build quality, material quality, and reliability that can match Honda and Toyota?
