1996 Dodge Avenger ES 2dr Coupe

Review

The Avenger was my first car out of college, and it's still going at 140,000 miles (9yrs.). It corners nimbly, and possesses great sport styling. Its athletic veneer, however, belies its pedestrian engine performance; It's pretty slow from 0- 60. unless you're drag racing, It boasts sufficient passing power on freeways. The tranny has given me fits: I replaced it at 95K and am starting to have problems again at 140K. I also replaced the water pump once and all the 02 sensors twice now. Overall, however, it's been a fairly decent car. I think it can last another year plus.

Favorite Features

Sleek & aggressive body styling, great handling, respectable gas mileage for a heavy sports car, insurance rates are decent for this car too

Suggested Improvements

Annoyingly large turning diameter, unreliable transmission, entry- performance tires are expensive to replace
