2009 Dodge Avenger Sedan SXT 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I got this car after trading my 02 Jeep Grand Cherokee when repair bills and transmission problem where getting to much and the car only had 53k . I have 60k miles so far and not once had a problem with the car other then changing the battery due to the heat in Phoenix. The design and style is attractive and the interior despite it's bad reviews I love. The gas millage is great with mine getting 29mpg on average. The only complaint I have is the 4spd transmission is really slow at picking up when you need the power but other then that this car is awesome.


Best Features

The overall design of the car


Worst Features

The slow power of the engine needs major work... A Geo Metro has more pick up power then this car.

2009 Dodge Avenger Sedan SE 4dr Sedan w/Prod. End 11/08 (2.7L 6cyl 4A)


Review

My Avenger may well have saved my life yesterday. Christmas Eve, and an old man with hearing aids nearly caused a head-on collision with me by veering into on-coming traffic in an ill-timed attempt to make a left. Between my seatbelt and the airbag, I barely felt the collision (I managed to swerve enough to clonk into his rear quarterpanel as he turned) and am not sore at all today. Plus, this car is built like a tank because, despite the harsh hit, only the front end was damaged. Not sure how much yet (it being Christmas, the insurance companies aren't out for blood yet), but I know it's not nearly as much as it probably should be. So thank you, Dodge. Thank you for my wonderful car.

2009 Dodge Avenger Sedan SXT 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This is my second ND winter wtih this vehicle. It gets around all right, however on the first below zero day the computer gets confused and the entire car dies. this has happened both winters. The dealer claims it just needed a computer update but that's not adding up for me. Has anyone else had this problem? My warranty is almost up and I'm very concerned it will happen again next winter. It's fine once they reset the computer. Very odd!!!!!


Best Features

All show and no go, but good gas mileage. I love the heated seats & cupholder. Comfy ride!


Worst Features

The chrome looks great, but look out if it's sunny. There are a couple blind spots.

Review

I've had my 2.7l SXT for two years now and it is still an awesome ride! It handles flawlessly, excellent in snow and rain and VERY smooth. The engine is VERY quiet and idles smooth. Overall quality has been excellent! No problems at all in the 2 years and the paint is solid. Gas mileage has been 22-24 mpg city and 28- 31 mpg highway. LOTS of power and VERY fun to drive!


Best Features

6-cylinder is strong; idles smooth; solid construction; no problems.


Worst Features

Bring back the 2.7 L V6 as a mid-grade option
