2002 Dodge Stratus R/T 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

For the most part I have never had any
problems with this car. I just never
really enjoyed the ride and handling,
especially for this to be a sport
coupe. This car is not a great
handler.

2002 Dodge Stratus R/T 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

great handling car, but in quick turns,
tires get pretty loud, but a quick
change of tires will correct it.
ive got 20k miles on mine now and love
it so far.

2002 Dodge Stratus SE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

The transmission in this thing is
terrible. I have the 6 cylinder with
an automatic. The car jumps when you
pull up to a stop sign. Also if you
sprint to 45 and completly let of the
gas, the transmission gives you a
nerve racking "THUNK" as it shifts. I
had to have the Transmission hoses
replaced at 26000. Since then the
dealership keeps adding trany fluid
but tells me it's ok. The battery
whent completly out at 38000, no
longer under warranty (Bat said 5 year
60000 dealer wouldn't warranty). Left
me stranded at a stop light in town in
lunch hour traffic. Now the Cig/ACC
outlet has stopped working. What is
next!!


Best Features

Engine has plenty of passing power.


Worst Features

Transmission, dealer service really sucks. Tired of little things going wrong. Please improve you QA/build quality. 28 mpg seems low for a 2.7l engine.

2002 Dodge Stratus SE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

No rattles after 40000 miles and
handles beautifully but the electrical
system is quirky.


Best Features

Fun to Drive. Great trunk space for a car it's size.


Worst Features

Fuel economy could be improved. I only get about 20 mpg on the interstate. The electrical system DIFINITELY needs work! My cruise control works MOST of the time. The FM radio works Most of the time while the AM work ALL the time.
