1997 Dodge Stratus 4dr Sedan


Picked up used in 8/01 w/ 42K miles.
Now at 67K and running good. Did
recently have to replace power brake
booster $230 and repaced factory warped
rotors with new aftermarket $100. Had
car in for 60K service $150. Only
other issue is with sub-zero cold
starts in Wisconsin winters. Car needs
a little gas and a couple of minutes to
get the shivers worked out. But that's
to be expected with a 6 yr. old vehicle.

Best Features

Comfortable driving position (seats/wheel size and placement. Enough getup and go without sacrificing fuel economy 2.4L. Rear seat legroom. Sporty suspension. Responsive gas pedal (except when flooring see improvements). Good sound system.

Worst Features

Road/tire noise can get tiresome. Center stack set a little low, cupholders too far forward. Transmission lag (1 second) during highway passing manuevers.
