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

Review

We have the SXT with the 2.7L flex fuel engine. Rides far better on Michigan's roads than our Accord did. Interior design is also better. Unfortunately the interior has too much cheap, hard, and gray plastic. It's also slower than our 2001 Stratus ES with the same engine, and gets 5 MPG less. Somehow Dodge has made this engine sound like it came from a bread truck instead of the nice exhaust sound on the Stratus and smooth acceleration. The Avenger seems to "fight" it's way up to speed. We have the upgraded seats and even those are awful. No comfort at all and they squeak like crazy. Like the looks, love the design, but needs better quality, MPG, and be put on a diet. Close, but no cigar.

Favorite Features

Cup cooler/warmer and LED interior lighting. Slick. Very smooth ride for a mid-size. Feels secure.

Suggested Improvements

Better interior materials quality, more interior color options. The Boston Acoustics sound system is way too boomy. The Infinity systems were much better. Better exhaust sound, no bread truck engines. Better mileage. Needs a manual transmission option
