Summary:

If you don't need insurance and want a side car, the Stratus is great

Faults:

The battery ran out, only because the previous owner didn't replace it.

I had the windshield replaced, because it was cracked.

This car is a racer car... amazingly fast and powerful. Maybe that's the reason I thought was it overheating a lot... It might be normal. I was not used to this car, and that kinda impressed me in good and bad ways.

In Brazil, the insurance for Chrysler cars is very expensive, because we don't have any dealers here.

General Comments:

Amazing.

Very powerful acceleration, a racing engine within a cheap car.

So comfortable, a buddy told me you could have a romantic encounter on the back seat.

Virtually sealed and silent. In Sao Paulo we have a lot of traffic, and I didn't even pay attention to it when I was in my Stratus.

Great A/C.

So many features for such an affordable car.

Summary:

It is good to sail it

Faults:

Passenger powered windows broke twice.

A small noise from the front panel.

General Comments:

It is my first "big" and imported car, and I think it was a good choice.

A lot of legroom space, "solid" on freeways as a big boat on the sea, but fun to drive.

"Stylistic" and comfortable.
