The 04 Stratus that I recently traded had problems with the fuel guage the whole time that I owned it, which was a long 13 months. The problem was the fuel sending unit inthe tank, a common problem. Need an instrument cluster?

Yes, I've had that problem since new. Probably should have taken it back to the dealer before the warranty was up. But they usually screw up something else, that is why only I work on my vehicles. Still only 30,000 miles on it.

Also have the rear brake rattle, think also a common problem.

Also had loose transmission cooler lines and leaked significant fluid out. Just tightened to fix those.

All these common problems that several people have should be fixed for free, regardless of when they happen.

I have an 03 stratus sxt coupe 2.4 sohc and I have the same issue. The tank is 16 gallons but only takes 12 to fill up if you get gas directly when the light comes on. I believe the vehicle is designed this way to make you paranoid about having an empty tank so you don't run out of gas. Now I know not to fill up completely though because then it will evaporate more quickly, plus if you do it in the morning or night when it's cooler you get more gas in your tank. I would also recommend filling up about halfway each time as well so there is less weight in your tank to increase mpg.
