2008 Dodge Avenger R/T 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
I traded my 2003 Dodge Stratus R/T in for the Avenger R/T FWD. After a lot of looking for a sporty, fun, and practical car the Avenger was my best bet. I first test drove the AWD but I was disappointed by the acceleration and handling. The AWD doesn't get the performance suspension like the FWD does. The convenience package is worth the money. While the interior is semi-cheap looking everything is very functional and is quite easy to clean. The seats I find to be very comfortable, especially on long rides. Carpooling is a breeze, and the acceleration is hands down awesome for a car in this class.
Love the acceleration and the handling. Very aggressive exterior design and this car gets a lot of looks. The 6 speed autostick also makes this car even more fun to drive! Really feels like a sports car.
The plastic in the interior is a little cheap looking.
