2004 Dodge Stratus SE 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

My '04 stratus was my baby. I bought her from a dealer that was a close family friend as my first real car. My stratus held up amazingly well! I really enjoyed driving it, and all of the room in the car and trunk area! I thought it got really good gas mileage usually 22/25, however when driving on the turnpike I got 32 mpg! I only had a few problems with it. One being that at around 100,000 miles I had to replace the transmission pan and my transmission fluid would leak. My car also stalled out on me once. I was in an accident and hit by a drink driver on the drivers side. I have to say this car held up wonderfully! I wasn't hurt, however my car was totaled!


Best Features

It was very easy and fun to drive! I love that is had both a CD and tape player! I love that it held pretty much together during my accident.


Worst Features

The transmission, and back seats they were a little uncomfortable to sit in!

Review

Very quiet, with new rotor-and brakes, I know I am good for the next 40,000 miles, next challenge what about oil, will burn more?

2004 Dodge Stratus SE 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this car from a 'friend' and in a few months I had transmission problems. also idles rather loud. This car is about 4 years old; it should not be having these problems. A few more repairs and my bill was over $1,200. So I won't be buying another dodge stratus anytime soon.


Best Features

Car was comfortable, and it was a smooth ride.


Worst Features

Work on engine integrity. Under the hood is not pretty.

2004 Dodge Stratus SE 4dr Sedan (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Bought this as first family car. A few months after purchase the car would just stall while driving. It will do this every few months and no reason has been found why. The car was 3 years old when it needed a new starter. A few months later the brakes just stopped working. It seems that after the car was 3 years old, every few months it has needed repairs. For a car that we have always kept up with routine maintenance should be more reliable. Getting ready to trade in and not buy another dodge product.

2004 Dodge Stratus SXT 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Bought this car new. Great fuel economy:32HWY, 24CITY. Still has original battery and rear brakes. This car is fully equipped with sunroof, power drivers seat, great CD player and all other expected options. I'm getting ready to buy a new coupe, but haven't found any car that could compare to this Stratus in ANY price range, Only draw back is not 4 wheel disc brakes. Still the best bargain for under $18000 (out the door). If dodge can come up with a new FWD coupe, I'm a buyer. No need to shop around. What a WINNER !!


Best Features

Great performance and fuel economy. Many luxury features found on coupes costing much more.


Worst Features

Would have liked 4 wheel anti-lock disc brakes.
