I've had my Stratus for 10 years now as my daily driver and over my past 40 years of car ownership I would definitely say that this is the best car I have ever owned. I have had my Stratus into the dealer to be repaired exactly twice in 10 years. The first time in 2003 when my cd player wouldn't play any cd's. The second time was in 2009 when the thermostat broke. I have replaced tires, brakes, and batteries over the years but nothing else. The struts and exhaust system are original. I have the 4 cyl. 2.4L engine with auto transmission. Gas mileage is 18 to 20 in-town depending upon whether or not I have to use the AC alot. The car always starts, even in our dreadful minus 20 degree days of January. I'm going to keep this one for as long as I can since it has been so cheap to operate. I only have used synthetic or synthetic blend oil and change it every 5 to 6 thousand miles. Thanks, Dodge for a super dependable, kind of plain, 4 door sedan!
