2008 Dodge Avenger SXT 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


I love the exterior look and the car handles well. I'm a little disappointed with the amount of recalls (3) so far and the radiator sprung a leak at the seam for no apperant reason. Luckly it was still under warranttee. The only other thing that concerns me is the erratic transmition shifting when the engine is cold. The ride is comfortable and I get comments on the sleek exterior. Pick up is good, and it gets good gas mileage. Not the car to work on in your back yard though, the battery is located under the left wheel well cover and nothing looks easy to work on under the hood,...water pump, alternater, A/C. etc. are all buried. I will probobly pay it off and sell it, three years from now.

Best Features

The way the car handles, and the interior is very quiet. Ample room for a midsize car. Good size trunk too.

Worst Features

Different Transmission, I don't trust it
