1998 Dodge Stratus ES 2.5L V-6 from North America
Good performance in such a cheap package
Had to replace the brakes twice.
The air conditioner went out at 90,000 miles.
The door frame under the back right door has detached.
The only other thing really wrong with this car is that the cup holders are hard to sit your drinks in.
Other than that I love this car. The auto-stick in it is magnificent. It's so fun to just be driving and slap it into a lower gear and fly.
The engine sounds the best in the higher revs per minute. A little bit of muffler work could make this car sound wonderful.
The car has a low center of gravity for a sedan, and handles real well thanks to the double wishbone suspension.
Overall this is a great car for the price paid. Though I'd love to have the 200 horsepower of the new Stratus.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
