1998 Dodge Stratus ES 4dr Sedan


Time and time again Chrysler proves to the American public that they don't care a great deal about building a reliable automobile. My 1998 Stratus WAS just like any other Dodge car- a pile of junk. Head gasket, radiator, transmission,and internal engine problems all before 70,000 miles. My advice to anybody is to stay away from the Stratus. Yes, you can get into one a bit cheaper and they are comfortable to ride, but you will pay for it in repairs. Chrysler should be ashamed of themselves for building a disposable piece of junk. My contacts lasted longer than my 1998 Stratus. It depreciated faster than a share of stock in Enron

Best Features

Interior and handling

Worst Features

Engineering obviously. Especially head gasket, transmission, and braking. Cup holder was terrible and there was a very big blind spot in right rear.
