good car bad brakes
By scottyboy on


1998 Dodge Avenger ES 2dr Coupe


This car has been very reliable for
me; however, this excludes the
rotors on my cars front brakes. After
having the replaced several times (
for free-- they were replaced before i
bought the car and crysler warrents
their work for a year. ) I decided to
buy some cross drilled rotors. this
has solved that problem - other than
some oil consumption this car has
been rock steady. I have blown a few
of the "infinity" speakers. but the
humidity in michigan is probly to
blame for that. replaced the eaisily
bent rims ( dang potholes). its cheap
to maintain, but sucks fuel in the
winter. the transmission is slow, not
the car.

Best Features

Handling, looks, stereo ( speakers not withstanding), power everything that works 5 years later ( try that in a gm car). Heats up very fast in the winter

Worst Features

tires are horribly expensive for what you get, but are a good trade off over having snow tires. better brakes, more horse power ( k&n filter helped me) i get 8 second 0-60 now. Always looking for a clutch and a manual. oh well. faster cooling a/c
