    It's Not A Bad Car. I Like It.. Just Don't Love It. — It is a 4 cyl.. I don't need to say anything more regarding performance ;) It looks pretty nice from the outside.. the interior is comfortable. Not that fun of a car to drive... it's ok.. Gets good gas mileage! Took it to South Carolina and it was pretty comfortable. Gets around pretty well in the winter!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Looks pretty good for a 4 door car

    Cons: Brake noise.. not that exciting.. resale value sucks!

    I Would Buy It Again, Still Trying To Figure Out "auto Stick" Since I'm An Auto Driver :d — I took her for a fast trip over the mountains last week. For what she is, she was great! Not a gas pig and nicely sat at 120 kmh even up the mountains so I was very happy with the performance. When I needed to haul @$$ to pass people up hills it was great, not gutless and I really like her around the curves. This is the kind of family car I was looking for easy to drive with a little kick when I need it.:D

    Pros: Nice Smooth Ride

    Cons: Bad blind spot

    The Best — I love this car. It's amazing looking, good quality, and performs like a champ. It's fast, reliable, and not that expensive to own. SO fun to drive, and you look good doing it. I really hope you buy this car, it won't let you down.

    Pros: Awesome Car.

    Cons: None.

    2008 Dodge Avenger — Driving this thing is pretty fun. I lost focus for a second a hit a turn a little to fast and kinda lost it a little bit, I regained control of the car. At slower speeds it hits turns fine and leaving a light, getting out of a drive way fast(living off a major highway) or getting around that slow driver it accelerates nice for only being a 2L 4 banger. Looks nice from the outside and has a good looking interior but after a while the interior on mine got scratched from backpacks and bags. it's good on gas and not a real big dent in my wallet yet. going on the interstate you can say good by if you go to fast cause it in my opinion is to light when the wind starts heading towards you. Car drives fine though and has very comfortable driver seating and shotgun seating. the bench in the back gets ache after a while though. Oh and the gauge placement for me is ok. I wish the rpms were in a different place though. Sound system works just fine I think.

    Pros: For being a 4banger it moves, looks good from the outside, good speakers.

    Cons: only a 4banger, gauge placement, some of the handling aspects(if thats how you wanna say it)

    Dodge Avenger R/t — I really like the Avenger...nice cruiser, very comfortable...just wish this was a better performer! Decent quickness, terrible body control when pushed. Very reliable to own after two years, mostly enjoyable to drive. If you're looking for a nice cruiser, this is a decent choice.

    Pros: Dependable, scoots ok, nice cruiser

    Cons: not very sporty, especially in the bends, but fun to mash to go pedal none the less

    Dodge Avenged — Good mid size car comes with nice amenities fast if you get one of the beefier models not so great on the blind spots but fun to drive and looks good is like a younger brother of the charger. we have one in our fleet is nice good for people looking for a cheap sporty car.

    Pros: Styling like charger

    Cons: slightly smaller than charger underpowered in cheaper models

    Mikes Avenger — Fast and beautiful, not to mention the lifetime powertrain warranty, and drive it in automatic or stick with the 6 speed transmission. With the nice 18' rims, she sticks to the road so you can take corners at MAXIMUM speed!!! Ahhh...my baby....and shes got moonroof!!

    Pros: Everything!!!

    Cons: Gas mileage isnt the greatest

    My Mom's Avenger — Nice looking car (very aggressive), interior is typical dodge, but looks attractive (the gauge cluster and the dash/console area) despite the large amounts of plastic. It has a cooled area above the glovebox inside the car, and can hold a few cans of pop. Personally, entering and exiting the vehicle is very unorthodox, due to the seat bolsters, and you sit too low compared to the belt line of the car. The seats (cloth) do repel water, though. Gets decent mileage, has okay pickup, definitely pulls in the higher RPMs, though. The 2.4L is a very loud engine, offensive to some. I don't mind it, as it has a nice mean sound for a I4. Good value for the money.

    Pros: Aggressive Styling, Decent Power (higher RPMs), Cooler above glovebox, Good gas mileage

    Cons: Sit too low compared to car belt line, seat bolsters make front entry weird.

    2008 Dodge Avenger — My Avenger was purchased with economy in mind. We traded a 2002 Concorde and was scepticle about ride quality. The mid sized Avenger rides about the same as the concorde. Gas mileage improved from 17 city to 23 city and from 21 hiway to 32 mpg. the Avenger has the 2.4 inline 4 cylinder verses the concorde's 3.5. The cars weight is only a couple hundred pounds different.The Avenger has a short turning radiusand is very easy to handle. turning corners is just as easy as handling a high speed curve. It is a driver friendly vehicle and is fun to drive. The only thing was getting used to where all the controls are. Everything comes off the steering column. The speed control has it's own lever on the right side of the steering wheel. The turn signal/light control switch is incorporated into one lever on the left of the steering column. Finally the wiper control is a lever on the right of the steering column. The perfiormance of the vehicle is remarkable for the 173 horsepower 4 cylinder. It will still accelerate like a small V6. The four wheel disc brakes stop the car real good with no swaying. The car will stay in a straight line. I would not hesitate to run a slalom course in this car, it would be fun. The Avenger just turned 7300 miles and I have had no problems with the car. The only maintenance on the car has been to rotate the tires and an oil change. Dodge did a good job as to filter out noise. The exterior styling (what can I say) it is a "Baby Charger) with front wheel drive. The blue pearl paint gets many people's favorible comments. The interior is driver friendly. Everything ig easily within reach of the driver. The dash is easy to read at a glance.The sattelite radio with a 20 GB hard disc drive is great. It also has a hands free bluetooth device incorporated into the radio. This is a very fun car to drive. It has fantastic looks and makes you feel good to be seen in it. I would recommend this car to any one.

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Learning the location of the lights, wipers, and speed control
