Cons: MILESGOOD CAR, VERY ROOMY AND FUN TO DRIVE
Advice: Don't buy itI have owned this car for about a year and I absolutely hate it. It is the worst car I have ever owned. My transmission jars when you put it in gear and they told me all Stratus' do this. Engine is loud. Value drops way down.
Pros: I hate it!!!!!
Cons: The Value
Advice: Buy a used oneDO NOT BUY THIS CAR BRAND NEW!!!! I bought a 2004 Stratus for $19,000 and here I am 2 years later, owing $15,500 on a car with a trade-in value of $5,000. These cars take a HUGE hit in value during the first couple of years. If you want a stratus...do not buy it brand new...get a used one that is at least 2 years old.
Pros: The Shape of the car
Cons: The seat covers
Advice: Buy it. Its a great carGreat speed on the Great turning on corners. Brakes are very good. The Accelaration on the car is fantastic.
Cons: everything else
Advice: Don'tWhile looking at new cars we had the displeasure of riding in one of the most horrible vehicles I have ever been in. This car only had a few thousand miles on it. The outside-beautiful! The inside-horrible! Nothing but plain really hard plastic, really uncomfortable seats, ridiculous amount of whining engine noise. I haven't been in a car this sad since the Yugo! Don't be lulled by it's looks, this car sucks!
