2008 Dodge Avenger R/T 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
Drive this car along I-90 in WY. Hit a deer at 75 mph with 250 miles on the odometer and the car ran another 75 miles to get me home. Realized that all that the damage was mostly plastic and that had probably saved the structural aspects of the car. Was wearing my seatbelt and I did not get tossed foward at all, felt extremely safe. I drive this car 120 miles round trip to work and home, through the fall and now winter, good handling car, I have not had any problems driving on snow and no problems starting this car in the cold. Brakes and steering are not soft and not touchy. Decent clearance for a lower riding car, suspension is great and rougher roads/dirt roads are no problem for this car
Auto settings on climate control. Smooth shifting after the car warms a bit. Lots of trunk space. Good running engine. Comfortable seats.
Auto dimming mirror could use an all the time on switch, it doesn't dim for setting suns. Get rid of the chrome inside. Put the headlight switch somwhere else, I always turn my lights off trying to run the wipers. Remote start could use more range and send a signal back to the key fob.
