| ||Model of the car:||Stratus|
| ||General comments:||I love it. My mother had a '96, it was great. I only had one reservation, that was the noise, I think it was the 2.0L on the '96. After taking the '98 out for a spin, and without any noise, I asked where I sign. This thing looks, rides, and performs excellent. For 2.4L it moves and it rather stealthily (smooth and quite). Haven't had any problems other than routine maintenance, 62K and still no head gasket issues that almost scared me off (until bought an extended warranty after about 55K) I am very pleased, my hats off to the Dodge team on this one. I can't get over how good it looks, GRRRRRRRRRR BABY. If you are a family, graduating senior, college kid, or even a bit aged this is a great car. The only people I wouldn't recommend the Stratus to is....well, everyone should have one. Cab forward, I wanna shake the hand of the genius behind that one. Too bad about the Breeze and Cirrus, they need a facelift, they may all ride the same but none look as pretty as this charmer. FYI: Gas costs get real cheap with this baby.|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car:||Okay, all that glitters is not gold. When I occasionally head to McD's I like to supersize, but I have no where to put a drink that big. How many years has this bad boy been on the market and those Dodge boys haven't gone to McD's? And please please, find out why the front doors are so cock-eyed when they come off the line, it only took about an hour for the shop to bend them correctly, but it was inconvenient I WANTED TO DRIVE MY NEW TOY :-)|
| ||Previous car:||1996 Stratus: Dont get the 2.0L unless you are in a real money pinch, it is loud, my '95Explorer was quieter. 1995 Explorer, No real comparison but gas mileage is not even comparable. Any Ford Contour my family has owned: Well, I know yours is newer and h|
