I've owned my 06 dodge stratus for over 4 years. It has been the most reliable car Ive ever owned. I was the 2nd owner and purchased the extended service plan from the dealership which was a total waste of $2000. I havent had any problems with the car since the day I bought it and I've put about 50,000 miles on it. I've maintained the oil changes regularly and topped off fluids whenever they needed it. I've had to purchase 4 new tires and a battery, and I've replaced the brake pads. Everything has been just regular maintenance. I've since bought a Dodge Nitro and declined the service plan on that one.

I bought this car in 2007 with 20,000 miles on it. It now has 65,000 miles on it and I have not had any problems with the car what so ever.I drive an hour to and from work 6 days a week over twisting and very hilly roads. The car has plenty of power and gets excellent fuel milage. I get about 25 MPG even with all the hills. Out on the interstate I usually drive about 75 and still get 27 or 28 MPG. I have driven this car from Alabama to South Carolina and back several times and it rides great.

I love this car!!! This car started out at 13999. I got an excellent deal on it. It was knocked down to 9999 and had almost 29,000 miles on it. I got a warranty until 85,000 miles and free oil changes for 2 years. This car drives like a dream. It is VERY smooth and gets GREAT gas mileage. Highly recommended vehicle, very dependable. Sound system is awesome!!!!

I just recently bought a 2006 Dodge Stratus SXT. I usually am not a fan of Dodge and Chrysler lower end priced vehicles, but I received a promotion flyer for this car in the mail. I payed $11,750, with 20,000 miles on the car. I am very satisfied with every aspect of the vehicle except for resale value. Peppy accel, hardly no understeer nice sounding audio. Very effecient, simple layout on all control features, a/c, radio, etc....

We have had no issues at all! okay, i lied... we haven't found wipers that work all too well yet for it. and she was awesome back home in NY for christmas in the snow.
