Good Work Car. — this is a good car for a novice grease monkey with a few tools and basic mechanical knowledge, but if you have to pay someone else to check the oil for you, then this is not the car for you. the 4 speed automatic transmission has a bad reputation for failing usually due to people using the wrong fluid and the older style parts witch have been revised for rebuilds. the 2.0 dohc engine is good as long as keep up with the service intervals. for some reason, most of the parts houses say "part not available" when trying to find parts, however, parts for a Mitsubishi eclipse and other dsm cars are usually in stock and some are an exact mach. (not sure why). good car but make no mistake, you will have to get your hands greasy here and there to keep it on the road.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: bought the car cheap ($350), easy to work on, decent gas millage (31mpg), handles the road well. great for going to and from work. engine warms up in 5 minutes on a cold morning so the heater starts working fast. heated mirrors and rear defroster are convenient for winter driving. driver seat is fairly comfy.

Cons: hard to find some parts, the parts that I can find are not always the best quality. I usually have to lie and say its an eclipse to get some of the parts (not sure why that is). cigarette socket turns off with the key (can't leave the phone charging). lots of road noise. paint is peeling but its 19 years old. my biggest complaint? I can't find an oem style replacement front bumper, just those big ugly racing style ones that sit 1 inch off the ground.

1995 Dodge Avenger Es Red - Pos — Like the style of this year. Every time I think about getting her painted she breaks. I'm thinking about getting a paint job on her. Getting pretty old, not many on the read. The new model has no personality like this one.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: paid for

Cons: Always having some sort of engine problem

I Would Buy This Car Again If I Had To, But At A Lower Price. — I like my car. I bought it two months ago for 900 bucks. So far, I've only had to fix one rear strut on the car, and that was my fault. I hit a pothole. The Part was only 45.00 to fix. My car is all leather, and I'm not looking foreward to driving it in the snow, but I am glad I bought it. It's the best car I've ever owned.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks Good,  Drives fast (topped out at 135 mph)  

Cons: Takes forever to heat up,  Shifts funny.  When I shift from reverse to drive, the car almost stalls.

I'd Take It Over Most New Cars On The Market Today. — The fact that it's automatic is a major put down but being a car from the mid 90's it performs well handles quick turns and provides an overall exciting experience. I have driven this car much harder than it possibly should have been but it's stood up to the challenge wonderfully.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Small, Quick, Fiery

Cons: Automatic, Manual locks, windows and no cd player

Avenger — it was my father's car, got to drive it a bunch of times. great pick up for a 2.2l, 4 banger. basically it was a toned down eclipse or an fto for the americas. was loads of fun to drive, although dad was with me most of the time,lol.

Pros: good looks, dodge product, wicked on gas

Cons: expensive parts back in the 90's, it was more like a love child between dodge and mitsibishi than a true blue dodge

All Of Them Are Lemons — everything that you don't want to go wrong went wrong, and to replace it was HORRIFIC! the radiator rusted and it ALWAYS over heated, one of the fans broke and cost almost $600 to replace, the head gasget blew, burned ALOT of oil, the sway bars broke in two and to fix them was impossible due to rust... the interior would break all of the time. the windows were horrible becuase they lacked a frame.....

Pros: looks nice

Cons: this car was made by dodge... this means lack of quality, engineering, and reliability.....

It Was 500 Bucks — Mine has had some problems. They are prone to oil leaks (main seal) and have faulty ball joints. They are nice and cheap though and are pretty much completely interchangeable with Eclipse parts.

Pros: Cheap parts, easy to fix, pretty easy to tune.

Cons: Crappy dodge engine, not exactly a sports car.
