| ||Model of the car:||Dodge Stratus |
| ||General comments:||I would definitely recommend this car to a friend. It hasprovided excellent reliability and good performance, whilemaintaining a steady 30mpg in all driving conditions, overnearly 5 years. After all this time, it also remains looking fresh and attractive, unlike many of its contemporaries.The paint finish has held up exceptionally well. It stilllooks almost new.I can sincerely say that driving this car (4 cyl, 5 speed manual transmission) is a joy.|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car:||The upholstery on the driver's seat had to be replaced afterapproximately 2 years of heavy driving. (~36000 miles)Check the seats for *personal* comfort. The Stratus' seats fit me very well -- not so for some of my friends. This isa very personal thing, though.|
| ||Previous car:||It's much better and more comfortable than the 2 subcompactsit replaced. Datsun 210 and Mazda 323 were functional, but nowhere near as comfortable, while providing similar gas mileage.|
