This car is charming but flawed
By wings on


1997 Dodge Avenger 2dr Coupe


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

Best Features

Looks, decent gas economy, fun to drive BUT if you are car shopping, remember there are other fish in the sea

Worst Features

no more failing transmissions and short-term paint. the underbody is not solid, it falls apart
