Nice Sound & Nice Body — The car definitely wasn't built for power but the handling is pretty good. Mine has 187,000 miles on it and I've owned for 1+ year. No major problems, just normal wear and tear for a car that's 15 yrs old. Rockers have rust issues, especially when you live in ND. Overall, I love the car and would recommend one in good condition to my friends. These trannys can have problems, so beware of that.

Pros: street racer style

Cons: not a family car

Good Avenger — The car definitely wasn't built for power but the handling is pretty good. Mine has 163,000 miles on it and I've owned for 2+ years. No major problems, just normal wear and tear for a car that's 15 yrs old. Rockers have rust issues, especially when you live in ND. Overall, I love the car and would recommend one in good condition to my friends. These trannys can have problems, so beware of that.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The way it looks, it can compete in shows alongside my friend's more expensive cars.

Cons: lack of power, it looks faster than it really is

Great Looks , Low Price — I had a killer stereo , 2 amps , 2 subs, spent well over 2000$ . I loved this car. Great looks. Mine was dark green with a grey interior. Mileage was very good while the performance was also quite good. Had to fold the back seats down on long trips so that the amps didn't overheat.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great looks

Cons: could use bigger rims

Great Car, Fun To Drive And Economical. — The car is fast, but needs some more work to get the quickness up. Braking is awesome, as is handling. Haven't had much trouble that wasn't my fault, and the car is a blast to drive. By the way, 35 mpg, and it's a beautiful car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: top end speed

Cons: 0-50 speed

The Mitsu With The Dodge Emblem On The Front. — This car was great, believe it or not. The 2.5 v6 could have been bigger, but it had ample power. I the 90,000 miles I owned the car, all that needed fixed was; 1 battery, tune-up at 60,000, 1 rear wheel bearing, brakes all the way around, and 2 sets of tires.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Basicly 90,000 miles with no major problems.

Cons: Japanese steel rusts out something horrible.

Gets Attention — Not fast enough but it turns more heads than any other car on the road. Stock version is not as attractive with the work i've put in, all that has changed. Needs that big turbo engine to go with it though.

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

Pros: reliable

Cons: weak transmission

Even with standard features, this car is a good bang for the buck. Features such as sun roof, heated front seats would have enhanced the value even more. Too bad Chrysler decided to discontinue this... Read More
