Fair mechanically, bad cosmetically

2001 Dodge Stratus SE 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


I have owned mine since new. I read the other review of the black paint, and I have the same problem. The top coat of paint just flakes off over time and makes your car look like it has dry skin. I have givin up washing it. Very disappointing. And also the dash is cracked in 4 places along the defrost vent. I have replaced the exhaust manifold because of cracks also. The car performs well and kicks but when you mash on the pedal. It gets reasonable mileage for a 4 banger. Even at 141000 miles. If Dodge would have put their own drive train in this car it would have been like the Vega. Mitzu makes a good engine. Also, if your 6' 2" or more, this car is too small for you.

Best Features

Nice exterior design. Corners well. Nice sound system. Overall mechanically good.

Worst Features

They could use better quality hardware. Black paint was obviously a flaw that year.
