2005 Dodge Stratus SXT 2.4 from North America
My best car purchase to date
Looking at other reviews of this car, I am not the only one who hates the brakes...
Just regular maintenance.
I have never written a review before, so please bear with me! :)
I bought this car as a replacement for my 2001 Nissan Sentra, which was nightmare from the day I bought it, and also because of an addition to our family.
I was able to pick this car up very reasonable at the "Year End Clearance" sale. I believe that for the price I paid, I got a fantastic deal. Has power everything, lots of nice features. The 2.4 four cylinder is pretty quick and gets awesome gas mileage, I get 30+ on the highway back and forth to work. Has tons of rooms for two car seats and baby luggage. Handles great in the snow.
The only thing that I can really complain about is the brakes. They seem to wear quickly and pulsate when coming to a stop. Otherwise, I have never been so happy with a car purchase. My Stratus has never really needed more than routine maintenance and has been a pleasure to own and drive. It still looks good after 5 years and 115,000 miles, and I hope I can get another 50-75K out of it. The dealer I worked with has also been great. This is my first Dodge, but it won't be my last!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
