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


When we first bought the car it was wonderful. I loved it but the mileage absolutely stinks. There is no way I get even 20 mpg with this thing. I drive 37 miles one way and have to fill up at least twice a week. Then the transmission went out, and within 3 months the timing belt broke. Now I only have my A/C working when it is on 3 or 4, but nothing on 1 or 2. And to top that off the car makes lots of noise when stopping or starting. Sounds like the whole car is about to come off it's frame. My opinion, I would never get another Dodge Stratus again.

Best Features

Use to be a smooth ride, and loved it. I think the only thing I like about it right now is when it is in the garage and not running it is perfect.

Worst Features

Need to get the mpg up lots more. I don't even get 15 mpg with my car and I use the requested additives and the appropriate gas. This car actually needs lots of improvements.
