Review of the 2000 Dodge Avenger

  • An attractive luxury/sport coupe with competent handling that deserves more power underhood.

    Good looks, roomy back seat, low price.

Her name is ruby

Vehicle: 1999 Dodge Avenger

I've had this car for 5 years now and it has been great. I've only had two major repairs. I had to replace the ball joints and the timing belt. other than that, normal maintenance is all that is required and the car runs beautifully! I take a road trip twice a year and the car always holds up nicely, better actually because it just wants to be driven! In California, we don't have to worry too much about the cold so this is not an issue. to this day it only has 100,000 miles on it and I will continue to drive it until it will no longer drive. I'm sure I have at least another 5 years with it!

I bought this fancy car over 230 miles away from home in Pennsylvania. I've been through the best and the worst with this car and every time I turn it on, it returns the favor. I've made some additions over the 3.7 years I've own the car, however nothing that takes away from the original showmanship. There were very few problems with this car and most of them were self inflicted. The only issue I have is that I don't have a manual transmission. Keep up the maintenance and the car will give you years of service. This car drives even better than it did the day I bought it. It ages like wine.

300.000 miles and running excellently

Vehicle: 1999 Dodge Avenger

We bought this car with 235,000 miles to travel driving to Mexico in 2008, not only we did that, now we are in Argentina with the same car after 65.000 miles of adventure, fun and good memories. The best buy ever and a good friend to have. I only can say thanks to my car.




245,000 miles, no problem

Vehicle: 1999 Dodge Avenger

I bought my beautiful car in 2005. I have 245,000 miles on it and have only had one tune up and spent not more than 2,000 in repairs. Except the time I got ripped off for about 1,500 from the Dodge Dealer.




Is it worth it?

Vehicle: 1999 Dodge Avenger

I got this car in June of 2009, it was a 1999 dodge avenger. After 2 weeks of having it, and being a new driver, the ball joint on the top right went out! Not only did that accident freak me out but so did the price to fix it (940.00$). this car is bad going over pot holes or divits in the road. The engine also has an odd tick to it. Not the best for a first car. Sun roof and stock sound system are pretty sick.




Very reliable and gorgeous

Vehicle: 1999 Dodge Avenger

My dad purchased the car for me in 2006 (in Ohio) when I was 18; it's paprika red and had almost 75,000 miles at the time. I brought my son home from the hospital in this car and it has kept us safe for 2 long, and sometimes quite harsh, winters. I recently moved to Texas and it had absolutely no problems driving the 1,300 miles here. The only thing you have to watch for is hitting the front on the sidewalk or wherever you park; it sits very low to the ground. I have had no major mechanical problems in the 3 1/2 yrs I've owned it; just replaced front tires. It now has 110,000 miles and still going great; it's almost paid off and I look forward to keeping it around for the next couple years!

Good luck to you, the Avenger-seeker. I honestly hope you get one that is trouble-free. For your sake, I hope Chrysler quality has improved, even if the hard data isn't showing that to be the case....

I ordered a Lund Avenger P/N 72067 that was supposed to fit but the mounting holes do not line up with the grille attachment screws. I can't find the 2000 Ram listed on any manufacturer's web sites....
