2008 Dodge Avenger Sedan SXT 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I was in a severe accident and hurt very badly - not a single airbag went off. No recalls on the VIN, just a terribly unsafe vehicle.


Suggested Improvements

improve on safety.

2008 Dodge Avenger Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Looks great. Feels light even with the 4 cylinder. Saved my freaking life. Good on gas. Basically everything with the car was awesome.


Suggested Improvements

Less plastic inside? It didn't bug me. Just it would make it feels fancier I guess.

2008 Dodge Avenger Sedan SXT 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

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.


Favorite Features

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.


Suggested Improvements

Dash plastic Scratches easily and could be higher quality.

2008 Dodge Avenger Sedan SXT 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

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.


Favorite Features

cooler in the dash, aux input for my iphone, power seats, roomy, powerful engine


Suggested Improvements

interior looks cheap and built together like legos.. my only real complaint.

Review

I loved my dodge when I first bought it. I have driven it a year and 8 months and have started have some sort of problem that I do not know what is going on. I can be just driving down the road and car shuts off. Sometimes it will crank back and sometimes not. It just dies while driving down the road. Is anyone else experiencing this problem? I had to have it towed one time and the mechanic said he couldn't find anything wrong. Someone please shed some light on this for me.
