1998 Dodge Avenger 2dr Coupe


I bought the car with 11k miles. Has run great and always been reliable. Just now starting to need engine work, 6 years later. Either it goes through brake pads quickly or I do.ha I do have some nasty paint oxidation but the may be thanks to the Missouri DOT and their salt. Have broken both door handles twice. Do not take to the dealer to fix them they charge $100's when you can buy and replace yourself for $40 and a couple of beers. Overall, great car. Great for tall people like myself. I have heard and witnessed shorter people not being able to check blind spots very well. No real complaints. But time for a new car. Great car for a high school kid's 1st car these days.

Best Features

Very comfortable and roomy. Sits four people very well for being a 2-DR.

Worst Features

Engine is hard to work with since most general maintenance items are behind the manifold. This is the reason taking it to mechanics is so high priced. Easy to do yourself if you are somewhat mechanically inclined.z
