1997 Dodge Stratus ES V6 from North America
Holds up well in crash
I've had problems with my transmission. I think the Auto-stick has had some thing to do with it. I've had this problem fixed 3 to 4 times and I still have some problems with it.
The car handles great at all speeds. Hugs the road in the curves. Only complaint is where the cup holders are placed.
I recently crashed this car and am waiting to find out if it's totaled. But the car held up amazingly well!! For hitting a guard rail the car looks great!! I will consider buying another Stratus just because of how well it held up in the accident!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I completely agree with the cup holder situation!!! Someone wasn't thinking straight on that one. I can't get to my coffee or anything for that matter because the shifter (automatic) is smack dab in front/middle of the holder. Not only that, but if you try and install one of those cheap hardware store types that hook onto your heater vent they get in the way of the stereo. I suppose one could always utilize the ABUNDANT dash room and use double sided sticky tape.

I really like where the cup holders are located in the car. It is easy to reach my beer, and put it back when I am done.

I just bought a 1997 Dodge Stratus; so far all good.
