1998 Dodge Stratus 4dr Sedan


I got this car because it was a cheap manual transmission car with nice cold working AC and with gas prices at around 3.50 a gallon and the car being only $800 bucks i bought it even if i got a few months out of it i wouldnt lose, but honestly being skeptical of it at first because it was a 14yr old DODGE and i figured i would drive it until i could afford to get into a car payment again on a brand new car honestly now im so in love with this old car that i figured why would i even need a car pymnt when this car is paid 4, super dependable, and the gas mileage i get out of it is ridiculous its over 30mpg easy ha even the stock radio is sounds good, 127k and im the 2nd owner, mine was a deal!

Best Features

Style of the car is cool, stock radio sounds pretty good, the a/c couldnt be better, acceleration is decent since its a manual transmission and it chirps second when u get on it, power windows and locks standard, remote trunk release, mid size car with full size car interior room, but my absolute favorite feature is how much this car hates the gas station i drive alot here and there with my friends hanging out i actually think we spend more time driving then in any one location and this freaking car is always ready and always has gas even when it says E we still get a couple more trips until we put gas in it again, so not sure if its only my 2.0 Stratus but its gets A's across the board!

Worst Features

Clear coat chipping a little but its 14yrs old so i guess thats normal but paint still shines!
