Its A Great All Around Car Rides Smooth But More For A Family. — I like the color the most about the car its my favorite color. Its pretty quick but more of a family car and im only 20. I washed it a lot and no one ever smoked in it. It has a lot of room in the trunk. Wasnt really anything i disliked i just want to get a different vehicle.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Runs great and never broke down!  Has heated leather front seats.  A lot of space to put things in the trunk.  Seats 5 comfortably.

Cons: I dont really have anything bad to say about the car.

Dodge Avenger — Has plenty of power for being a 3.5L v6 and it lots of fun, love the factory remote start with the heated cloth seats. Haven't had any problems with the car. Gets roughly 27mpg on highway and 20mpg city which is higher then what epa estimates it at.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Everything

Cons: nothing

Toughest And Best Looking Small Sedan On The Road. — Acceleration acceptable, braking great, handling swift. Flaws with interior only on chrome trim package. Gas mileage around 26 in town, good for a heavy four door four cylinder. Just kept up with fluid changes and new tires, bridgestone's that came with the car made terrible road noise and were bad at 40k miles. Again the car gets head turns all the time and I love looking at it in the garage, I would have liked the v6 srt edition but nothing a later life mod like a turbo or chip couldn't fix.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Makes you look awesome.

Cons: chrome package lacks build quality

If Your A Grandma/pa It Would Be A Great Car To Have. Lol — My car is a four cylinder and it's not fast....I have the need for speed and that cannot be fulfilled in this car :o( The acceleration is horrible, and it needs a few repairs after only a year of having the car. Wish I could have bought the R/T. But I'm grateful to have a car that runs and looks good! :o)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It has a built in cooler

Cons: SLOW

Great For Drag Racers; Bad For Everyday Drivers Or Performance Drivers. —

When I bought this car, it had 22k on it. I bought it for the looks and that I got a decent trade in for my Honda accord which had about 160k on it. I regret it now. Perfomrance is FAST. This car's engine is terrifyingly good but it is very clunky. Also the handling; anybody claiming this car handles good has clearly not driven others in its category. It's a very numb feel with no driver-feedback other than how lax it is. The front end has a tendency to understeer alot. Build quality is average for dodge. It's very plastic inside. My old honda [DX model] has far superior plastics, and it was much older. This feels cheap. The seats are highly uncomfy, however the cargo is decent and the rear seats are decent as well. Appearance is where this car shines. It looks strong, masculine and menacing. But that's the downfall I found when cleaning it. Square design makes it annoying to drive in cross winds. Mileage is not great. I find myself spending an extra 15 bucks a fillup per week for this thing. Insurance is decent however, but honestly, that engine and package really doesn't help. Tack on another 1000 for that. Fun factor. The car is FUN. It really is. You feel fast, it makes a good noise. Mine's a 5sp manual however the gear switch is like an old pull-lever from a victorian trolly. It's heavy, and slow. Not very sporty. Much closer to driving a freightliner truck. It's fast, sounds great but doesn't "perform" in the turns. I even have a squeeky left rear suspension when I do any performance driving. It's an ok car, but I'm trying to see if I can trade it in for a mazda 3 or something with a little more life to it, and honestly, practicality. I don't like driving a cheap car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: looks cool, sounds cooler

Cons: seating, interior plastics fit and finish, transmission is heavy.  Bad performance steering.

Good — My Dodge Avenger is very reliable. It has leather, XM Radio, GPS, alloys, and more. It's pretty fast with it's little V6. It was cheap. It's pretty fun. I like it. Cool and cooler. It's awesome. Not much wrong with it.

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

Pros: Comfy, cool.

Cons: Not the best performance or good looks

Dodge Avenger Se — Its got a stout little 4-cylinder... and for being the size of the engine and weight and length of the car, it puts out quite a bit of power. The stock brake pads get a glaze when they get really hot, but brake hard a few times per month to remedy that. The handling is very responsive, and the car itself rides very smooth; when I let my sister drive, she was at 95mph and thought she was only doing 65... The interior is VERY roomy... A nice cruising car. The stock body comes upgraded, has a combination muscle/sport look to the body. 24 MPG is a plus, and it is a very fun car to drive.... just ask my buddy Aaron

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handling, size of Interior, stock sport body kit, gas mileage.

Cons: 4-cylinder engine...

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
