Vehicle2004 Dodge Stratus SXT 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
ReviewWe needed a replacement for my wife's
Breeze and the Stratus was the logical
choice. The size and price were the
main factors that contributed to
purchasing the vehicle; we needed a
practical car and weren't looking for
anything fancy. The SXT package added
some nice features like 16" aluminum
wheels and keyless entry. The biggest
problem so far has been the replacement
of the transmission at 500 miles due to
a high-pitched whine at 75 MPH. The
driver's side window leaks some water
when going through a high-pressure wash
but after the debacle with getting the
transmission fixed I decided I could
live with a little water on my arm now
Best FeaturesSporty styling. Roomy interior. Nice option set with the SXT package.
Worst FeaturesThe 2.4 is VERY noisy. I've had slant sixes that were as quiet as this thing; if you want to pretend you've got a hot rod 4-banger then it's OK. A tranny being replaced at 500 miles is sad. Is the UAW accountable for quality control?
