Owned this car for nearly 10 years

1996 Dodge Avenger 2dr Coupe
I bought this car new in 1995 and have been the only owner. I've had an overall excellent experience with this car. I've had to replace some belts, hoses, power steering pulley twice, battery, radiator, thermostat twice, and radio (once under warranty). All things I would expect to replace within a 10-year span on any car. I have no regrets about buying this car. It's been very good to me.
Turning radius is HUGE, and the car has tendency to hit front and rear when entering steep inclines. It's very low to the ground. Add another cupholder to the front seat, and find a different place for the radio controls - shift gets in the way.
