"I paid 19,000 USD for this vehicle in 2004. I drove off the lot with exactly 3 miles on the odometer... the Stratus has dependably traveled thru cities and down highways and endured 6 years of New England weather and pot holes before I found a reliable covered parking oppty. I would buy this model again."
"Best Car ever!! I bought this car with just 95 miles and I just hit 230,000 miles and only had minor maintenance - regular oil changes (about 5000-6000 miles), 1 set of brakes, 1 change of rear housings, only 1 battery, several sets of tires, and at about 228,000 I had to replace the radiator. This car handles well on the road all year round-even in the snow. Even with the high mileage I am still averaging around 28 mpg overall. The exhaust system will need to be replaced probably in the next year, but overall the car is still going strong. The car is not showing rust issues or any electrical problems. I hope I can get another 100,000 miles or more out of this car and it will be a great starter car for my kids as new drivers!"
Pros: "great gas mileage & really comfortable to ride in."
Cons: "Sits too close to the ground-hard getting in&out"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 5
"We (me mostly) really love our car but due to my medical conditions with my back and hips I'm going to have to give it up for a vehicle that is easier to get into. It sits too close to the ground for me (and now my husband) to get in and out without it darn near killing me. The car itself is great, you can fit five passengers, has a huge trunk, has great gas mileage and it's so easy to park. When you're riding in it it's quiet and very comfortable!! It's a very nice car & if it was higher off the ground I(we) wouldn't be looking at other vehicles."
