1995 Dodge Avenger ES 2dr Coupe


Not really a Dodge, but a lengthened Mitsubishi Eclipse. Bought as a well used temporary ride. Keep it for its good looks, reasonable trunk space and rear seating room. Also for its nimble handling. The 2.5 V6 has more power hidden in the higher rpm range and can be found by manually shifting the poorly-suited automatic transmission. Fuel mileage can be 30+ on the highway on overdrive at 65 mph. Low ground clearance and roof line make parking curbs a danger to the soft nose and egress something of a chore. But on, particularly, back roads, the car is a fine grand tourer and a 5-speed would have transformed the car and increased its sales. In the main, an enjoyable ride worth owning.

Best Features

Looks, handling, braking. The engine is more powerful than the auto trans lets on and must be shifted manually to get the best out of it.

Worst Features

5-speed or, at least, "autostick". Another liter of displacement. More interior colors. Better clearance for larger tires and wheels.
