What a disappointment
By lisajanern on

Vehicle

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

Review

Bought the 08 Avenger used with only 20,000 miles on it-what I thought was going to be a huge improvement on my old beater. At 44,000 miles out of the blue the shifter was stuck in park (yes, I put my foot on the brake!). Apparently there was a recall for this reason and I was NEVER notified. Even though it was covered under warranty AND the recall the dealership was incredibly difficult to work with. Other than that, it runs and handles well. The interior is cheaply made and it shows. Low quality plastic all around. Seats are uncomfortable, especially for long trips and blind spots are literally big enough to fit a semi truck in.

Favorite Features

Very responsive handling. Great stock radio/sound system. Pretty powerful car for the money.
