I have only had the car for a little over 2 months, but I really do love it considering I upgraded from a 2004 Dodge Neon SXT. But sadly enough my neon was smaller yet the avenger yields about the same gas mileage so that's a plus but odd enough my neon was faster than this lug of a car. 2.4L 4cyl engine just isn't enough to haul the weight of the car.. If I was buying this car i'd recommend getting the 2.7L or 3.5L. It doesn't have the performance I was expecting but I like the sleek performance look though and get compliments on it especially since mine has 17' Challenger rims on it. But it is a great family car I would say. Also nice that it has Sirius Radio and the cooler for 4 cans of soda which is pretty neat.
So I guess I'm the only person who had no problems with this car. I bought it used at the end of 2009 with 30k miles (it was a company car for its previous owners) the only thing that was wrong was the plastic that covers the spedometer had a crack, that didn't effect visibility. It was just a crack. I drove this car daily and love it
I had the SE so only a 4 cylinder. But it was enough to have a quick start and handled great for me. I made plenty of 1000 mile trips and was great. I skidded on ice and smashed into the side wall twice at 80mph and walked away without a problem. This car is amazing and it saved my life. The trunk never leaked and I had no problems at all. I loved this car.
Looks great. Feels light even with the 4 cylinder. Saved my freaking life. Good on gas. Basically everything with the car was awesome.
Less plastic inside? It didn't bug me. Just it would make it feels fancier I guess.
You :)Bought this car new and drive to 77000 miles.
The only problem was a radio replaced under warranty due to bad hard drive.
Other than that tires and brakes.
I'm 6'4" and had no trouble fitting in this car, I liked the heated stain resistant seats.
My current vehicle is a 2010 avenger R/T, 3.5 L.
This is a great car absolutely no problems,
finally had to put brakes on the front at 90,000 miles.
Both err r than tires and windshield wipers this car starts and drives like the day I took it off the lot new.
Love the heated seats and the v-6 on my 2010.
Loved the stain resistant seats on my 2008 set.
Both of them handle great.
Dash plastic Scratches easily and could be higher quality.
I bought this car as a Certified Pre-Owned about a year ago. This has been a fantastic car, I bought it with 61k miles on it and within a year I put 22k miles on it doing mostly highway commuting to college and and work and occasional shopping trips an hour away. Haven't had to do anything mechanically to the car other than the oil and filter change every three thousand miles. I have the 2.7l V6 SXT version.. gets average about 25 city/hwy.. do more highway driving and I'll get about 28. Highly recommend for someone who wants reliability, sport look, and a cheap price.
cooler in the dash, aux input for my iphone, power seats, roomy, powerful engine
cheap and built together like legos.. my only real complaint.
