Great ride, for little money.
By TuxMan on


1997 Dodge Stratus 4dr Sedan


Bought mine used for $2,000 with 60,000 miles on the motor, 110,000 on the transmission, passed emmissions. Spent less than $1,000 for new tires, brakes, and shocks. Serviced the transmission at 115,000 for less than $150 for new fluid and filter. Starter went out a year later, less than $300 to replace. Overall I've spent less than $3,500 for the car and all repairs.

Best Features

Great AC and heat. I like the body style, the seats, the dash layout, and the power from the 150hp 2.4L motor. Very little wind and road noise. Huge trunk. Rear seats fold down.

Worst Features

I want power locks, and windows. I want a key chain remote to unlock the doors. I guess I should have bought the ES.
