1998 Dodge Avenger 2dr Coupe

Review

This is essentially a great car, except for two major problems. First, the door handles break off. BOTH of my handles broke within a year of having the car! I personally know two other people who have had this happen to them, and I see other Avengers on the road with messed up handles all the time. It's not a cheap problem to fix, either ($250/door without paint!). Which brings me to the second problem: the paint. Almost every black Avenger I see is oxidized like crazy - my entire trunk is now white, and the roof isn't far behind (even though I waxed it regularly and kept it in covered parking).

Favorite Features

Sporty looks, performance, no mechanical problems (so far), very comfortable, good standard features, well designed interior.

Suggested Improvements

Obviously, the cheap, flimsy door handles, and the bad paint job.
