This car despite many problems always have done well for me. I get 27mpg in city driving, and 34mpg in country or interstated travel. Folding down the back seats was a plus for me in hauling dirt, lumber, craft things for a show. I could pack more into this little car than most people put in a truck and still make it over the hills. Its 165,980 miles on the car and still putting away despite an oil pump problem I can't find anyone to fix. Everyone says its not fixable. But I never regret this car, its been the best dodge car I ever have own. and Better than my last car which was a Ford tempo.
Back seat fold down, cassette player, gear shaft in the floor.
Put the oil filter ontop where people like me can get to it to change it!
I have a 4cyl 5 speed avenger and have
not heard the 4cyl having all the
problems the V6 has. The car looks
great inside and out and is very fun
to drive. It could use more power,
although the 4cyl with the 5 speed
stick is a tick faster than the V6,
which are all automatics. Overall I
love the car although I wish a little
more attention was paid to
Very large trunk, can actually fit two
friends in the back seat without
complaints, styling inside and out
still looks great 8 years later,
really fun to drive.
Durability, the soft dashboard
material has lost some shape, the
front fiberglass bumper/grill hasnt
fared well, cracked from scraping on
steep driveways, a lot of minor
