The Dodge Stratus is a great mid-sized single or family car: reliable, sturdy, and comfortable in it's interior design
The vehicle is physically comfortable, the seats are fabric, so they do not get too hot or cold. The car is sturdy and reliable. In nine years I've only needed basic replacements, including the serpentine belt, brakes, headlights, tires, and this year it needed a new starter. However, it has had no major problems, and considering the mileage and the constant city driving, the car has really stood the test of time and use. I do regular cleaning, oil change, liquid checks, and maintenance. If you take care of this car, it will last a long time.
