"My husband was struck broadside on the drivers side of a 2001 Dodge Stratus on 8/21/08. The other car that hit him was going 70mph according to the police. Our car then spun and slamed into a concrete bridge on the passenger side. He was in the car alone. My husband substained minor injurys compared to the damage. He is hurt but not like what he could have been. The police thought that it was a fatality upon arriving on the scene. The cabin of the vehicle remained in excellent shape, saving his life. The air bags deployed, as they should have and the uni-body crumpled, on cue. I would recommend this car to anyone and we are going to buy another!"
"I own a 2 door status. My car is awsome and sporty. Handles great in the snow. Gets good gas milage. The only down side is my teenage son is very cramped in the back seat with his long legs!! Not the cars fault. Having a hard time trading it in for something bigger!! Would feel good about giving it to a teen to drive as a first car."
"I bought this car brand new and have never had any mechanical or performance problems. Even after someone hit the back bumper, it maintained its excellent maneuverability and comfortable ride. After replacing the bumper, a carwash, and keep up with maintenance, this baby shines. It is smooth and fluid on long rides and responsive on short heavy traffic conditions. At 10 years old it is still a classy comfortable ride and worth much more than it's blue book value."
"I bought a 2004 dodge stratus in 2006 after I was in an accident and my previous car was totaled. I bought it with just about 30000 miles on it. I don't really drive that much but back and forth to work and around town but it now has 66000 on it. I have never EVER had a problem with it! The only thing I have ever had to pay for were new brakes and tires. I never thought I would go for a 2 door coupe like this but when I got behind the wheel I was in love! Its not very roomy in the back but its such a nice car that I overlooked that. Besides I dont sit in the back. I just really love this car...I really think it depends on the owner before you and how they treated the vehicle!"
