2006 Dodge Stratus Sedan SXT 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

For my 17th birthday I got a 2006 Stratus and I can not wait to trade it in. It's slow and the inside is boring. My mom got a 08 VW Passat and it has a V6 and it flies. My Stratus has nothing, no heated seats, no GPS, no sunroof. I would recommend getting a different car if you're looking at this one.

2006 Dodge Stratus Sedan SXT 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I like this car. I can't say im in love with it, but I have very high expectations. (I'm a Lexus/ BMWgirl) Other than that it is a great car, never have had any major problems ever. The only thing that bothered me was the fact when I wrecked at 45 mph the air bags didn't deploy. But then I am not sure what speed you have to be going for them to. And that everytime you hit your brakes hard the back seats open and everything from your trunk is now in the cab. But other than that it is a good car to get from a to b so I can't complain. I plan on having this car for a long time.


Best Features

I like the fact that when I abuse my car it treats me great.


Worst Features

The front end is kinda ugly and the seats could be upgraded (lumbar support?) and the back seats should have some sort of knob to lift to open to the trunk.

Review

I have a 2006 sxt with the 2.4 sport package. It performs awesomely. For a four cylinder, slow off the line but great power after 30 mph. To help further my mpg I got a cold air and it jumped my 150 horsepower to a whopping 175. Also I put in a tornado fuel saver and it jumped my hp up to 180. It keeps up with my sisters grand am gt. Great car care equals great performance and reliability. The front and rear sway bar provide great handling. The tight steering responds great. Fuel mileage is great after cold air and tornado, 28 in tow and 35 on the freeway doing 80. The only thing I can say is car care 100%


Best Features

white face gauges, sport package has chrome tip exhaust and traditional dodge flat black spoiler, reflectors under tail lights make it look sportier. handling, Boston acoustics speaker system is awesome! side impact air bags on sport package makes me feel safer. traction control on sport package


Worst Features

standard power sunroof, anti-lock brakes standard. and slightly more pizazz in the interior too bland other than white face gauges

Review

I bought this car in December of 06 and have been happy ever since. The mileage on the highway is incredible. If I keep the tires correctly inflated and use cruise-control I get over 30 mpg. In town is another story. The mileage plunges. I used to think poorly of Dodge until I owned this. It is very comfortable for me, though it isn't as refined as a more expensive luxury car. But for the price I am willing to overlook some small drawbacks such as cheap dashboard plastic. The interior is ergonomically perfect, not too flashy and not too sparse. Overall this has been perfect for me. One more thing, Dodge made it very easy to perform the maintenance on this car and save money.


Best Features

V-6 engine allows great acceleration and decent Mileage on the Highway. Ergonomics for a 5'8" guy are perfect and when I have kids, the back seat will allow easy installation of car seats while trunk can fit everything I need.


Worst Features

Improve some of the seemingly cheap parts like the fake carbon fiber dash. A jack for an I pod in the radio would be nice. Better spare tire cover in the trunk. Present one moves around when something heavy is placed in trunk.
