1997 Dodge Stratus 4dr Sedan


Extensive repairs, followed by more broken parts have been the story of my experience with this car. Bought it at 132k miles and had problems immediately. Poor insulation has led to leaks inside the passenger compartment during rain storms. The AC has numerous leaks in the line and has never worked. Still having engine and transmission problems. Do not buy this vehicle unless you can pay 4x it's value in repairs!

Best Features

This vehicle gets great gas mileage.

Worst Features

Everything about this vehicle needs improvement. I can see why Chrysler discontinued production of the Stratus.
