2004 Dodge Stratus R/T 3.0 V6 from North America
Great bang for the buck!
Not too many problems.
Driver's side seat belt has become weak when returning to its fixed position after use.
Headlamps have the typical UV fog damage that all cars get now.
The clear coat on the car has been compromised, which is a problem on all the cars painted black.
I love this car. Best bang for your buck with regard to performance in this car category. Pretty quick acceleration when mated to the 5 speed trans.
The handling is good, but the car does get ass-y when pushed hard through a corner. I am going to try stiffer rear shock spring combo to help keep things settled in the back.
The interior has held up well, with no issues other than the seat belt retraction being weak as the car gets older.
I love this car, and purchased it for a fun 3rd car that gets great gas mileage. I am averaging 28 MPG with mixed driving, which is way better that the 16.5 MPG on my 2002 Dodge Dakota.
I highly recommend this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
