Aveeeennnngggeeeerrrrrr — good car, high top speed over 150mph, about 7.0 to 60mph, engine too small, lots of accessories and decent leather. cheap to fix and drive and it was roomy and comfortable. good build quality, no squeaks and rattles. hard ride with UHP tires.

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

Pros: Good Car well built

Cons: cant park it or see out the back

This Car Was And Is The Car Ive Always Wanted. — The car is perfect for me and my lifestyle. I'm very hard on my cars and this one has survived through more than i have ever seen another car put through before. I just wouldnt recomend it to anyone around 6' or taller : )

Pros: The car is a joy to drive, and very easy to fix on your own if you like working on your own car.

Cons: Most of these models develope knocking, though it is pretty simple to fix.

Fun To Drive, A Nice Car To Drive For Someone With Not A Lot Of Money — For a 1998, its a nice looking car. The quality of the car is decent, one problem has set me ablaze. I have considered installing intake and exhaust in order to give my car a little more pep. This car is amazing to drive- sport steering makes it so much easier to whip it around.

Pros: A great car that will not be as expensive as a similar recent car.

Cons: If you dont like older cars, you wouldnt like a 1998

A Piece Of Sh*t,but Looks Good — AKA THE TURDBOX,it has no torque, no horsepower, brakes are to small,the interior is a rattlebox i am also too tall for it the undercarriage to the point where chunks of metal fall off, it usually doesn't idle,too many unfixable exhaust leaks, the down pipe fell off and, not too easy to work on. 21MPH hard to work on, paint is just fine, the interior looks pretty good "now that i ,own it''. green cluster instead of the PISS ORANGE from the factory and how do you like the modded head/taillights.

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

Pros: It MIGHT get you where you need to get

Cons: not to stable on the freeway at 75+

Give It A Try It Is A Good 1st Car Too Have. — Too heavy, acceleration blows! Do to weight tires go bad very fast. Sleek style. Decent MPG's. The car in itself has always been good to me. I have almost 200k miles on it and had to replace the tranny about 30k ago. Still runs pretty well. Oh and the damn door handles are known to break on the outside so... Get that fixed or your stuck going through the trunk o.0 and that aint fun!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks

Cons: Mechanics

This Car Is Pretty Good But Would Be Better With A Manual Transmission — decently quick, solid quality, this car looks sick, i have only had to do one repair so far and the reason for the repair has nothing to do with the car but the reapir was expensive because the engine bay is so tight. gas mileage is ok, the V6 didnt come with a manual option which sucks but its pretty fun to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: the way it looks

Cons: the V^ engine

My Dodge Avenger — Japanese engine and American style. Best of both worlds. Cousin car to the Mitsubishi Eclipse and the Eagle Talon. Custom exhaust system by Magnaflow and 2.5" pipes from the manifold w/ hi-flow cat. Great on fuel and performance. Custom throughout.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Japanese engine.

Cons: Parts and upgrade availabilty. No supercoil.

2.5l V6 — Performance wise it's great. Accelerates smooth, brakes smooth and handles perfect. Build quality, well mine has 230k miles on it and I had to replace the driver's lower ball joint and the driver's sway bar link because they went out. The windows tend to rattle at higher speeds, but it's a sports car. Appearance is great I love the way it looks Interior is all leather and the outside has a real Muscle car look without having a Mustang like everyone else. Cost of ownership is pretty low. Oil changes, Tune up's..the normal stuff. Gas mileage is good I drive about 74 highway miles on a quarter tank. Overall, It is a great car to have and a pleasure to drive I love having an Avenger because I dont see many of them and mine has 230k miles like I said and still drives like a dream

Pros: Great looking, Drives smooth, Not many problems with 230k+ miles

Cons: It's a sports car, so it is a little more expensive to maintain then a Minivan!

Clean — I was given this car as a gift because my old Eclipse blew up. It was given to me with close to 84k on it. It has a stock engine but I'm working on that part. I love this car. It's quick and handles great, I put some better tires and rims on it and I'm going to redo the whole interior soon. Give it a more sporty look. It gets about 23mpg and with gas prices lately it's better than my old truck. Great choice in a car, I'd recomend to anyone.

Pros: Beautiful car, works great.

Cons: Struts but will be replaces
