good car bad brakes

1998 Dodge Avenger ES 2dr Coupe


This car has been very reliable for me; however, this excludes the rotors on my cars front brakes. After having the replaced several times ( for free-- they were replaced before i bought the car and crysler warrents their work for a year. ) I decided to buy some cross drilled rotors. this has solved that problem - other than some oil consumption this car has been rock steady. I have blown a few of the "infinity" speakers. but the humidity in michigan is probly to blame for that. replaced the eaisily bent rims ( dang potholes). its cheap to maintain, but sucks fuel in the winter. the transmission is slow, not the car.

Best Features

Handling, looks, stereo ( speakers not withstanding), power everything that works 5 years later ( try that in a gm car). Heats up very fast in the winter

Worst Features

tires are horribly expensive for what you get, but are a good trade off over having snow tires. better brakes, more horse power ( k&n filter helped me) i get 8 second 0-60 now. Always looking for a clutch and a manual. oh well. faster cooling a/c
