Reliable...but falling apart
By David James C on
Vehicle1996 Dodge Avenger ES 2dr Coupe
ReviewThe Avenger was the pick for my ex - and I got stuck with it, while she took the new RAV 4. Smart. The Avenger is reliable, always starting, but acceleration and performance seems to decrease year after year. I put oversided fat tires on it, and it looks and handles very well . The seating is very uncomfortable and the electric fore/aft died, but the cabin still looks good. CD function died, but the premium sound system is still good. The tranny seems to be going now. Front end was replaced by the previous owner. A/C died, holds vacuum, but cannot find leak after recharging three times. The next day it's dead. See a trend here? Time to sell it while it still looks good.
Best FeaturesExterior and interior styling, mileage.
Worst FeaturesWeak engine, weak tranny. Wide turning radius. Weak CD player. Bad cup holders. Uncomfortable seats, low overhanging bumpers scrape the ground, and are expensive to repair.
