Pros: the looks
Advice: buy it new; don't let your teenagers drive your carI bought this car new. I've had it now for three years and it was running great until my 17 year old got a hold of it and has been using it for awhile. I never had to do any maintenance on it, yet.
Pros: Sexy Car
Cons: Poor Handling
Advice: Forget itI fell in love with this car instantly, then after about 20,000 miles the front end started feeling funny… Do not buy this car unless you drive like a grandma, it can't handle it! Also NEVER drive it in the rain, there is no control in the rain at all.
Pros: Autostick shifter
Cons: No T-Tops
Advice: A Buick Roadmaster it is notI have a 2003 Stratus R/T Sedan with the 2.7L V6 with the autostick automatic transmission and I love it. The car handles like my old 98 Z28 and it came standard with 17 inch wheels, much nicer looking than the 16's that came on my Z. As for as the ride quality, yes it's a firm ride (sports car like)but not a cheap or jittery ride. It does not feel like a poorly built vehicle, for instance the doors close with a nice tight feel without using much force it makes a nice air tight seal. As for looks and power the car with make the front tires screech if you autostick it into second, cool! Best of all, I drive my car aggressively and it responds in a very perdictable positive manner, again it feels like the car was built very well. I love mine and I would recommend it for a person who still has hotrod attitude and occasionally requires a car seat, and oh yeah needs to get 28 MPG.
