I bought my 2005 Stratus 1 month ago. It has yet to give me any problems. This car is a gas sipper, compared to my Lumina. I love the handling and the engine power (SXT model). I really wish it had adjustable seats (Being 6'1", my head is 1" from the roof) Also a sunroof would have been great. The MPG is amazing. I have only filled it up twice since I go it!! Would 100% recommend this car to family or friends.

I bought my coupe with 60,000 original miles on it, 1 owner, and so far I love it!!! My last car had major window issues so I was sure to purchase a 2 door this time. I love the sunroof, the big windows, the sporty sleek exterior, the leg room in the front, the deep trunk, and the simple dash. This is not a great car if you have any leg problems because it does sit quite low, but if you have long legs it is great! Also, if you live in a snowy area like I do, it tends to get stuck more often than I'd like because of the Sport Suspension. It does handle quite nicely in slick conditions though! It takes a little time to get used to the more limited vision in the backseat, and this is not a car you want if you need a big spacious backseat. Other than that it drives smoothly, gets great highway mileage, ok city mileage, and is excellent for long travels. I love it:)

I bought my 2005 Stratus R/T Coupe brand new in oct 2005, and now have 92,000 miles on it. Ive had no major issues with it. Just routine oil change , about to buy tires the second time. (third set for the car since orginal) . And a Tune up witch the dealership charged me 300 bucks because they had to take the whole top part of the engine off to get to the rear plugs. Also My dash started to come apart about 2.5 years ago and keeps getting worse. I sceen a couple other couples and they did the same thing. But overall i love the car.

I got this car as a company car with about 10 miles on it in 2005. Gas mileage was awesome. It was driven from PA to NE, VA, OH and always made it through a tough winter. I now have 270,000 miles on it and it is slowly dying. It will be a sad day when I have to let that car go.

I purchased the SXT Sedan with the Special Edition package. It is an awesome car. I have had absolutely no problems with this car at all. It is very sporty with the rear spoiler and the high gloss, black paint looks great. I bought the car with 90,000 miles and have put on almost 8 thousand more, and still no problems. I would highly recomend this car to anyone looking for a great value, sporty car.

I have the SXT coupe with the Special Edition package.It includes leather interior and power sun roof. The 4cyl. with 5 speed transmission is peppy and still gets 34 mpg on the highway.It has great looks inside and out and it also has a huge trunk so I can fit a couple sets of golf clubs easily. It handles great plus has the dependability of Mitsubishi engineering.

Love my Stratus

by from Pennsylvania on September 22, 2013

My stratus is a 2005 Coupe SXT 5 speed manual with a 2.4L. I bought my car used with 25,000 miles on it in 2008. It now has 130,000 plus miles, haven't had any major problems with it. Recently put new struts, tires and rotors. And a few years ago had to get a cheap part to fix the clutch, no problems with that since then. The dash was coming apart when I got it, that got worse, along with the ceiling fabric coming off by the rear window and bc of a screw falling out on door hinge I see it's cracked now. My stratus has been the main vehicle so it's getting a lot of wear and tear. This is the first car I've had that lasted longer than a year! And it's still going strong, knock on wood! ;)
