We have been quite happy
This was the choice of my wife as it was to be her primary car. We have put 197,000 miles on it with no major problems. We recently replaced the front end struts.
This car is charming but flawed
This was my first car. Much like a first love it holds a special place in my heart. The car looks beautiful and the engine still runs smooth at 138,000 miles BUT I have brought it to my mechanic so many times that we could be best friends. The ball-joints, the tie rods, the struts have all been replaced. The struts are bad again after an additional 25,000 miles. Now, the transmission took a dump and it looks like my car has skin cancer. The car is charming yes, but after you get married to it, it will soon become lazy and consistently start to break in little annoying increments until you will want a divorce. If you are a risk taker, go for it, but you might get burned. other fish in the sea
Great Car, but now I've got a baby
I loved this car, but just had a baby and got a 4-door sedan (NOT a mini-van). I knew I couldn't keep driving a sports car, but didn't want to become a soccer-mom just yet. I wish I could have kept the Avenger.
