1996 Dodge Avenger 2dr Coupe


Bought this car my freshmen yr of college for $900, had an oil leak & needed brakes, I put a new head gasket (a Chrysler known problem) to fix oil leak, a new timing belt & tensioner on at this time, & spent $60 on brakes, broke the trans pinion shaft doing high speed doughnuts in the snow (whoops) bought a new diferential and its worked great ever since, I have done is regular maintenance, belts tires, o2 etc. As needed, rewired the a/c in auto class & now it will freeze you out. I recently broke 200k and it is still running as strong as ever, car looks great, handles like a dream & is fun to drive. Average 30+ mpg on the interstate & recently hit 37 mpg on the highway, 24 in town

Best Features

the car looks & drives great. got a speeding ticket and the cop didn't believe that it was a 13 yr old car!!

Worst Features

lower first gear would help the in town mileage, fix the a/c problem (or do what i did), cruise control switch will come back on after a key off cycle if it was previously on
