Decent family transportation
By Pete_S4 on


1996 Dodge Stratus ES 4dr Sedan


I had this car from 1996 to 2000 and
put about 65,000 miles on it in that
time. The motor and transmission were
trouble free for the entire time I
owned the car. The steering rack was
replaced under warranty along with the
tie rod ends. I also had to have the
interior control module replaced under
warranty due to a failed dome light.
This car was basically fun to drive,
but I do wish I had bought the VR6 GTI
I had also been looking at.

Best Features

Autostick (manual mode automatic), Large interior in a small car, decent ride and handling, large trunk

Worst Features

Brakes; the rotors/pads wear easily and the brake's stopping power is mediocre. ABS kicked in way too early. Motor was a little under powered for a V6, the 2.4L I4 offers similar performance.
