Don't give Chrysler any more money
This car is not for the faint of wallet. I've spent appx. $3000 annually during the last three years of owning this car. I've replaced the transmission, all four O2 sensors, ignition wires, spark plugs ($70 each time), and many other major repairs. I have friends who joke about my Check Engine light. I realize not every car is a lemon, but I believe buying this model is risky for anyone. Now who wants to buy mine?
This car is my baby. My real only problem is the engine went out. Something in the cam and instead of finding the problem just had it replaced. That was a hefty $1400. And there really isn't much wrong with this car. If you want proof go and drive another car that is a '96. There you go thats all you need. For a 1996 car this thing owns the road.
What I Think
On my 96' Avenger I've got 17" Riax, spoiler, graphics, cold air intake, 10" subs, 260 watt amp. I'm savin my money to get a new paint job with metalic flakes in the paint. My car hugs corners really good, and has a good top speed
