'96 Avenger — Overall a decent car. Gets me from A to B pretty reliably. At one point it actually looked really nice with the ground effects and everything but those have gotten busted up over time so now It's pretty much just a money pit, slowly dieing lol. A good first car though, or if you're just looking for a cheap car that's decent looking to get you to school or work and not cost you $$$ in gas then this is probably the car for you.

Pros: Good gas mileage. Pretty reliable. Cheap replacement parts. Fun to drive. Safe.

Cons: Engine is prone to leaking oil. Not terribly powerful, although the V6 model may be better.

96 Dodge Avenger - Beauty And Economy — I absolutely love the gas mileage of the 4 cylinder engine and 5 speed tranny combo. Handling is pretty good, it's no Mini but still good, and the brakes stop the car quickly. Power is the most lacking thing, but that can be solved with some aftermarket mods (many parts for a Mitsubishi Eclipse fit perfectly except for cat-backs). My specific Avenger has been by far the most reliable car my family has ever owned, plus the car just plain looks great.

Pros: Looks, gas mileage, handling

Cons: Engine power

The Stinky American Car — i don't like the car because its an American car of this era and its expensive when it needs to be fixed. i would much rather have an import car that cost 5 dollars to fix and only needs to be fixed on rare occasions.

Pros: looks nice

Cons: its american made

Money Pit Until I Fixed It — Everything went wrong on it...cuz it was from Illinois and beaten on daily...once everything got fixed on it I loved it. It's a car I've wanted but wish it was one that didn't have so many pricey problems. It's not really a fast car, boyfriend's Blazer beat it, just good enough for daily driving. It's just really a basic car to get me by.

Pros: Lowered, 2-door

Cons: Bad ball joints, tranny has to catch up when you stop

The Old Style Avenger Was Awesome. Reliable, Styling, And Great Driving — It was cloth interior (green), and had silver rally strips on the exterior. 2 doors, but was dificult with a rear facing car seat!

Pros: small, in-expensive on gas.

Cons: Too small with family of 4

First Car, Now Brother's — Dug this ride, lots of good times with it even though I blew the motor at 50k and it was always in the shop when I had it. At 100k miles or so we had to replace the trans too. Moon roof broke every winter. It had a great stock sound system and sexy curves. Handled OK and was quick enough for my first car.

Pros: Style, stereo

Cons: Dependability
