Great Car, Turns Heads
By Mark Silbernagel on
Vehicle2000 Dodge Avenger ES 2dr Coupe
ReviewI had a leased Olds Alero (2000) to compare against -- and found that the Olds felt more bouncy (had sport susp. opt). The 17" wheels must help the ES. The Avenger feels 'longer' and rides more smoothly (nice), and is also more quiet. Steering on winding rural roads is a little different (less sport 'tight') than the Olds but comfortable nonetheless. Body noise and fit are much better on the Avenger. GM does nice things with the technology (like using antilock sensors to determine when your tire pressure is low) but between the two I pick the Avenger ES. Mark
Best FeaturesPleasing lines, excellent braking feel, great sound system.
Worst Featureslittle more hp? transmission shifts could be 'cleaner' -- more sporty. I believe they addressed this with the Stratus.
