2008 Dodge Avenger R/T 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

Review

I was looking for a stylish affordable midsize AWD, especially for our winter. Considered the Fusion (didn't like the looks), Legacy (pricey) and some of the Chrysler models. Then saw the new Avenger and liked it (and the price) immediately. Good headroom and space, front and back. High sides on front seats may be uncomfortable for wider bottoms. Nice dashboard and interior lighting. Don't care much for the hard plastic finishes. Didn't bother with the Navigation system - the technology is changing too fast. Getting lots of admiring looks in the parking lot.

Favorite Features

Exterior looks, wheels. Pretty good performance for the price. Good solid ride and handling. DVD/MP3 capability. Autostick. Features for the price.

Suggested Improvements

Rear pillars too big - blind spots. Gas mileage (so far) far below expectations (US14 mpg). Make the drink cooler optional - its useless for anything but cans. Battery has to be replaced by removing through wheel well! Lowest gears too close together - supposed to assist in performance, but...
