2008 Dodge Avenger R/T 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
After 5000 miles I can definitely say that the Avenger is a car worth buying. My R/T is sufficiently fast although not especially fuel efficient. I mean, 14 mpg is really below average (mostly city driving). Still, the car is a head turner, drives well, comes with AWD and is perfectly fine for the daily commute while still being relatively affordable. Seats have been updated (lucky for those of you who buy after July 07) and are significantly more comfortable. I recommend the car to anyone who wants to original, while still getting a good car. Reports say that the SXT and SE trims are not worth your money. The R/T is more well endorsed. Good Luck
My R/T was equipped with the MYGIG entertainment system which includes the audio, navigation, cellular bluetooth, and more into one easy to navigate package that is updatable through the computer. Nav is good. Remote start is a great (and cheap) feature, get it. Aux jack included (Ipod anyone?
Blindspots aren't great, although you get used to them. When there is water on the trunk lid it sometimes spills into the trunk (annoying). The fake chrome around the shifter is loose. Ability to zoom in more on the navigation map. Dealer was especially helpless for MyGig problems, really pathetic.
