| ||Model of the car:||Dodge Stratus |
| ||General comments:||After reading all the complaints, i guess i am really lucky to have bought a used 1998 Dodge Stratus, 2.4L DOHC. So far, i have had to replace the rotors and pads and that's it. I love the design of the car, in my opinion the car looks better than the Cirrus and the Breeze, the snout is more appealing on the Stratus. I use to have a 1997 Plymouth Breeze, but I totalled it (i'm a lead foot 20 yr old). The 98 Stratus is awesome, decent pick up for a 4 cylinder heavy car, interior room is spacious and i am a big fan of cab-fwd design. I am currently in the process of making it an after market car, with all the goodies to literally smoke the rice cars (import cars). I have an intake on it, in the process of having custom titanium exhaust system, high flow cat-back, 2.5 inches to 3 inch piping starting from the manifold all the way to the high performance muffler. The car is low, but i want it lower so i'm going to drop it and put some nice 17's on it. Dodge is terrible with those ridiculous 14's that come stock..yuck!! For the money, a 1998 or up Dodge Stratus is a very good car. I am totally for American cars, i don't care about the resale value; i'm going to use my Stratus until i bascially total this one as too (i race, a lot).|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car:||yes...CUP HOLDERS in the front...what is suppose to fit there, a pea cup that is found at the doctors office?? location of the battery, what i like to do is open the hood b4 i race and people come over to see what i have under there and i ask them, dude...i run without a battery...they are like NO WAY!!...funny :)for my type, a major weeakness, which isn't related to Dodge is the after market, yes...some products are finally available but they are kind of pricey compared to the rice after market stuff...but hey, to beat those rice cars which this and to see their face is WORTH IT!!|
| ||Previous car:||i dunno...i bought this one cause i liked it...bottom line, take car of the cars and they will work...after all its a machine...ultimate goal for my stratus, to make it a 11 second car...soon|
