Just had the right curves...

by Stratus Addict from Sterling VA on Mon Mar 21 2011

Maybe I am picky. I tend to look outside at my car through the living room window more than I spend driving them. If it does not have any style, why drive the car. We have so much choice in today's world. Oka, I like the curves on this car. But ever since 2000, the stratus has turned into another blob going down the road. Still not excited by the 200. I have had a 1995 2.4, I have a 1999 2.4 w/ 50k and a 1999 V6 w/ 108k miles on it. Both 2.4 needed new head jobs w/ pumps and time belts at 30-40k miles. 1995 held on till it started breaking engine mounts and then killed the transmission. Sold it at 90k with working AC. One thing about buying the same car, you can predict the problems. Fuse on the blower motor is one of things that are just annoying, check engine light always on here. V6 has been a great value since we picked it up with 29k for like $6k. Just now beginning to need stuff upgraded under the hood and will keep this one till it dies. All cars had gobs of power, but lousy mileage for the short runs to school. 18-22-28 Mileage on all of them. Hard to find these models any more, so will have to find a new choice.

Sweet

by Cheshire Cat from ClearH20 on Sat Sep 26 2009

This Car was a very fun car to drive handles great looks great and had a 162HP 2.5L V6 Enough power to get you into trouble but its not about looks its about it geting to point a to point b. I know most of the bad opinions are because people had a bad experience with a car. Heck, I don't like pontiacs anymore due to two the didn't work well with me. The best car I had was a Malibu that I destroyed in a car accident. Try it before you really knock it.

money pit

by brian from ohio on Sun Sep 07 2008

I've experienced similar problems as the first person who reviewed this car, my car is a 95 stratus ls 2.4 liter it's got 82k original miles on it so far i've completly rebuilt the transmision and had to put a new TCM(Transmion Control Module) on it after the fact, the transmision pan cracked and was leaking out fluid so that had to be replaced, The water pump just went and i also had to put a new timing belt in it luckly i caught it right after it started to wear out also needed a new idler pulley, so in general ive put probably 3k dollars more than this car is worth into it i just went to get an aligment and found out the struts and mounts are shot so now i'm just gonna drive it till it dies.

Piece of Junk

by Torreto from Texas on Mon Nov 19 2007

This Car was a very fun car to drive handles great looks great and had a 162HP 2.5L V6 Enough power to get you into trouble but its not about looks its about it geting to point a to point b and this car has gave nothing but problems i would wake up for work in the mornings and it wouldnt start later that day it would start and run perfect the transmission went out 3 times in 1 year distributor went out valve cover gasket leaking oil very bad oil pan leaking oil everywhere ac compressor locked up and broke the belt power stering pump and i only had it 2 years finally i gave up because the last thang was the timing belt jump and bent some valves that was costing me 2700 dollars so i sold it if u look at the car inside out the motor i kept up with everythang on it it was always clean you would look at it and thank its a great car but behind the beauty was a no good mitibishi motor. maybe i got one of the bad V6 stratuses but if i found a reliable v6 stratus i would but it in a heartbeat...

Our Take on the 1995 Dodge Stratus

Chrysler Corp. products.

The oldest thing still around is Lee Iacocca-and he's a mere part-time consultant in retirement.

Once the industry doormat that had to rely on Iacocca, Corinthian leather, cash rebates and K-cars to pull it through, Chrysler is now in such good standing that the competition pays attention to what it does.

In January, Chrysler unveiled a pair of sedans, the Chrysler Cirrus and Dodge Stratus, to replace the aged Dodge Spirit and Plymouth Acclaim this fall. Officials from General Motors, Ford, Toyota, Honda-you name it-happened by as Chrysler President Bob Lutz introduced the new cars on the floor on the Detroit auto show.

That was the tease. Now Chrysler... Read More
