Nice Car, Bad Engines
By Bob Nolan on


1998 Dodge Stratus 4dr Sedan


This car is a great car for anyone who
would like to own one, put few miles
on it each year, and sell it prior to
60,000 miles. Chrysler should be shot
in the head for using the crappy
engines (2.0 and 2.4l engines) in
these cars. After 60,000 miles, trade
it, sell it, whatever, just get rid of
it. A head gasket leak will turn into
a $3,000 repair in no time. Other
than that, great response, great
handling, and an all around economical
car in a good package.

Best Features

Very nice stock sound with the premium package. Cab-forward design makes a tall fat guy like me comfortable in it. CAb-forward design makes folks in the back seart comfortable too.

Worst Features

Engines need to last more than 60,000 miles. ALso, the passenger seat is slightly uncomfroatble, as it does not cradle the occupant in any way. The trunk lid is more like a hatchback than a sedan.
