A lucky find or a total bomb

1998 Dodge Stratus ES 4dr Sedan


Dodge isn't consistent in this model. Some people get lucky and have no engine problems and some people don't. If your considering a stratus that has 'minor' engine problems DONT GET IT PERIOD! Bought mine with a 'small oil leak.' Ended up replacing the OEM headgasket ($1500 no biggie considering what I paid for it at the time--it was a common problem) fixed that and in a week the rear main oil seal went out. I knew I had problems and tried to sell it but now the transaxle quit and the engine is missfiring. After $3000.00 into it I can't sell it for a cent!

Best Features

Handling is awesome, the MPG, and the sleek looks. Looks are decieving!

Worst Features

Get a new engine design. The cup holders are ridiculous but you've heard that by now.
