SXT Rental-200 miles of driving
By Howie on


2009 Dodge Avenger SXT 4dr Sedan w/Prod. End 11/08 (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


This car feels like something that should be sold only as a rental. That or a car you pick up used a couple years old for 1/3 of its original price. But compared to the competition, this car feels way behind. I drove it 200 miles the other day on all kinds of roads. Summery: Pros-decent comfort, good fuel economy, relatively smooth ride on straight roads, looks pretty good Cons-TONS of body roll in turns..ride is very bouncy like an old Buick, everything in the car feels and looks CHEAP, center console is too close to the driver's right leg, 4 cyl engine is WEAK, noisy and sounds primitive and shifts slowly.

Best Features

Decent comfort and good on gas.

Worst Features

everything-after driving a Sonata, Fusion, and Altima....the Avenger feels several notches below....especially the engine and transmision

So no reliability issues but you knock it because of your disdain for American vehicles...I drove in the same model vehicle and that small 4-cylinder is fast when given a few seconds...not like a doggity Toyota or Honda 4 cylinder.
