Launched in 1995 as a replacement to the Dynasty, the Dodge Stratus was initially well-received. It was a mid-size family sedan, and later it would be offered as a coupe. The platform it was built on was shared across the Chrysler family, and can be found on the Chrysler Cirrus and Plymouth Breeze of the same model years. Though it was favorably critiqued, buyers found either the down-market Breeze or up-market Cirrus to be a better purchase. That doesn't mean the Stratus didn't sell well - in fact, sales for both generations and both body styles over the 12 years it was produced reached nearly one million units. Still, Chrysler shuffled their model offerings around a few times during that period, and the Stratus was edged out by other vehicles. Many are still on the road today thanks to the reliability and dependability of Dodge Stratus parts. Since it was based on a Mitsubishi platform, its lifespan is very similar to a well-made Japanese car. Fun fact: Russian carmaker GAZ bought the tooling for the Stratus from Chrysler to build the Volga Siber from 2007-2010.
