2000 Dodge Stratus Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Dodge Stratus
Old reliable: still going strong after 13 years.
Before we owned this car, the previous owners had driven it from California to Idaho and had it sitting in the driveway for 10 years. This has led to parts needing to be replaced after we came into ownership. Adding to the difficulty, YouTube tutorials for fixing it ourselves were a rarity. That being said, it is a reliable car for our daily needs (shopping, commute, etc. ). All in all, a good little starter car, at least.
Spacious and convenient, great for getting seniors around.
The car is very reliable and is relatively low maintenance. The interior is spacious and so is the trunk. The position of the cigarette lighter makes it easy for me to connetc.my phone to the radio via Bluetooth. It has a CD which also works fine. The rear view mirror gives a nice wide range of vision.
Comfortable seats. Nice looking. Good pick up. Good on gas.
This car was gifted to me upon the death of my sister. It seems to be okay but it took me a while to get used to it as my other car, a 1989 Dodge spirit had better visibility. It does drive nicely and has good pick up and it is also a comfortable car. It has a good radio and looks like a nice car.
Dodge stratus great gas mileage.
My car is an ok vehicle. It is a standard so it is not easy to drive in heavy traffic. There have been a few bugs since I have owned it but I did not buy it new. The gas mileage is wonderful though and I do enjoy the smallness of the car. I would love to buy a new one but maybe in a few years.
Dodge stratus is reliable.
My car is 18 years old and has 104, 000 miles. It has been a reliable car for the most part. Just within the last 3 years it is starting to cost more to maintain. Nickel and dime repairs. Due to the car being older that is expected. For the life of the car it is done well.
Cheap car but worth it for what needs fixed.
Needs new struts put on when driving it squeaks and hitting bumps is hard on it. If you hit a bump the radio with shut off and turn back on, it for sure needs some tlc done but for what we paid for it. It's worth the price of it. Only paid 300 hundred for it.
It is a large paper weight at the moment.
My car is currently not able to be driven because the battery is dead. It also needs new tires as it has sat for over 3 years without being moved. Another issue it has is the coolant tank leaks so I have to replace the coolant very often when I drive it.
Check the recalls that is super important.
Transmission is horrible. Several recalled parts and gas is eaten daily in all you've seen what other cars can do on little to none. No fuel pump has been replaced 3 times. Were still smelling gas in the cabin.
There are a lot of them still on the road, so it does show fairly long life.
It's a sedan with poor gas mileage, compared to current models. It also has none of the new tech such as USB ports or MP3 input. And it is starting to show rust even though cared for meticulously.
It runs great, and is very reliable. Safe family car or great first teen car.
I love this car! For being a little older, I have never had major issues with it a all. Just an oil. Hangs every 3k miles and new tired when necessary are we’re set! Love it!
