About Dodge Stratus

Dodge Stratus is a mid-size vehicle manufactured by Chrysler Corporation, DaimlerChrysler and Mitsubishi Motors from 1994 to 2006. The first Dodge Stratus was introduced in February 1995 to replace the aging boxy Dodge Spirit and Dodge Dynasty as a sedan, Dodge Avenger as a coupe and Dodge 2000GTX. Although after being produced through two generations, Stratus was replaced by the Dodge Avenger as a sedan, Dodge Challenger as a coupe and Chrysler Sebring in Europe, it had received many awards and accolades such as it was on Can and Driver Magazine's Ten Best List.
The first-generation Dodge Stratus (1995-2000) was the middle entry of the Chrysler JA platform as a member of the Cloud Car, which includes higher-end Chrysler Cirrus and lower-end Breeze. It was offered in two trim levels: base and slightly more luxurious ES. And Dodge Stratus was powered by a 2.0 L I4 engine rated at 132 horsepower, 2.4 L I4 generating 150 horsepower and a 2.5 L V6 making 168 hp. The second-generation Dodge Stratus (2001-2006) was available in base SXT and sporty R/T as a coupe and in base SE, midgrade SXT, luxury-oriented ES and R/T guise as a sedan. And Dodge Stratus got more engine options ranging from 2.4 L I4 to 3.0 L V6 gasoline engines. All these engines sent power through 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmissions to the front wheels.

Dodge Stratus Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

In terms of refinement, build quality and reputation for reliability, Dodge Stratus is not good enough. But in price, exterior styling, it is a good vehicle. Therefore, if you also have a Stratus, the best move is to be prepared for these common problems:
First, engine failure. Based on the data from car repair statistics site CarComplaints.com, this issue is what Dodge Stratus owners most when driving. They all said when the vehicle reached at about 100,000 miles; this engine started to emerge and mostly was resulted from two reasons. Some said that they could find leaking coolant on the ground before the engine keeps in high operation temperature. Gradually, engine performance gets impaired so that it will hesitate while accelerating, consumes more oil than before and activates the Check Engine Light. Coolant leaks into the fuel system also cause oil sludge, which deteriorates above situation. Fortunately, most Dodge Stratus drivers solved this issue very quickly by replacing the Stratus radiator hose, water pump, cylinder head gasket and throttle cable.
Second, suspension and steering failures. These two issues on Dodge Stratus are not that serious as engine failure but under certain circumstance, they could result in fatal consequences. Suspension failure often starts with clunking, rattling and scraping sounds from underneath the vehicle, and then evolves in uneven tire wear and tilting vehicle. Finally, due to intense car vibration and loose steering wheel, drivers will feel difficult handling. So, the condition of Stratus axle beam and front cross-member must be in prime condition. As for steering failure, you can pay more attention to the Stratus steering column cover ad power steering reservoir.
