Good car

by RUSSIAN_STANDARD from Chelmsford, MA on Tue Mar 04 2014

Mileage is nice, though with 168hp, could be a little more peppy. It feels a little cheap driving it, of course when I was growing up, I learned to drive on my parents German cars.

The worst car I've ever owned

by J C from palatka, FL on Sat Jul 15 2017

I bought this car and the day after I bought it the transmission blew. I had to buy a new transmission, 2 new dashboards, a computer module. My windshield fluid container has a leak, my oil container has a leak. The car runs rough and I've heard the same things from a few others who own the same car.

Cirrus wingtips, Stratus loafers. Cirrus bottled water, Stratus tap.

Cirrus and Stratus, to be joined next year by the Plymouth Breeze, are themembers of Chrysler's compact sedan family, the replacements for the DodgeSpirit and Plymouth Acclaim.

Cirrus and Stratus are to Chrysler what Ford Contour and Mercury Mystiqueare to Ford Motor Co., compacts dressed in aerodynamic duds rather thaneconoboxes on wheels.

We tested the 1996 Stratus ES. No complaints about power from the2.5-liter, 155-h.p., 24-valve, V-6 but it is a Mitsubishi engine and not aChrysler V-6. Any company boasting engineering prowess must blush when forcedto... Read More
