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

It's Great — This car is sweet! I bought it off the showroom floor with a whole 4 miles on the odometer. I loved it the day I got it and I love it now. It drives fairly well for a sport model with rigid suspension but it's not too bad. It handles well around corners and it has the cool "slap" shifter. It's nice looking inside and out. The gas mileage is fair for a midsize. It's easy to maintain and is fun to drive.I would buy it again with no regrets.

Pros: All Positives

Cons: I can't think of one

Fun Car — Purchased with 130 miles I have the 4 cylinder engine, i travel mostly highway and get around 28 MPG while going nearly 70 down the interstate the whole time. This car is a blast to drive. great suspension, comfortable interior. my options included the MyGiG system, and I am glad that i got it, if you love music and travel alot, it is definitely worth the $650. Another plus is the Lifetime Powertrain Warranty (Free). covers nearly every component. I also opted for the lifetime bumper to bumper ($1250). which I have no doubt will be worth it as much as i drive (80 m/day).

Pros: Looks great, Nice options

Cons: Edgy looking front is compromised by strange looking rear end

My 08 Avenger Se — My avenger is somewhat peppy and pretty good looking even with the lack of rims. It has some impressive options and it performs pretty good generally. I wish it were not so cushy on the gas pedal and responded faster. It needs tinted windows and rims for sure to be more appealing physically. Upgrade the 4cyl with a V6 and this car would do very well for me. Its a 4spd auto and I really wish it was a 5spd stick instead. Overall this car costs a whole lot more than its worth so I would give it a 2 out of 5

Pros: Looks Sexy

Cons: Cushy Expensive and not fast enough

Fantastic 'baby Charger' With Plenty Of Guts! —

This car is fantastic all around. It's sporty and has a lot of guts underneath it's hood. Only a 4 cylinder but has plenty of pep and gets 32 mpg. Slightly smaller then its big brother, the Charger but still holds its own. Big enough to haul around a bunch of my friends and roomy enough to keep a billion things stowed away in the trunk. The grill and entire front end is meaning looking and is in a category of its own compared to other sedans. Performance wise it's great, would obviously have preferred the hemi, but being a student the 4 cyl fits my budget perfectly. All in all I haven't had much problems except for the factory speakers blowing (just one) but since its an '08 I got the nice warranty along with it and had all the speakers replaced so I could pop my own system, subs and all in there. The SE is perfect, I was able to snag it for 12k with my old car trade in. Great deal, great car, and very fun to drive, would definitley recommend it to anyone who loves a great, solid car with a kickass look. Even better, there aren't many out on the road yet so I turn heads where ever I go!

Pros: Comes in great colors, tons of pep, 32 mpg, very very roomy, looks a lot like a charger inside

Cons: the speakers originally installed sucked (replaced under warranty), a little tough to clean the interior

Dodge Avenger — the dodge avenger has great handling. the turning radious is very good. braking system is top notch. is had awsome acceleration....0-60 in bout 3 seconds i do believe. it hasnt needed any repairs and theres nuthing wrong with it. it comes with a built in navigation system thats completely up to date. siruis radio and its all on a touch screen. the air can b put on automatic and kicks in very fast and the tempurature chosing goes by degrees so you know what degrees your setting it too. the gas milage is great.we filled it up about half way through pennsylvania and had to drive home to connecticut. we didnt need to stop to fill up. it is a very fun car to drive and its very easy to go super fast in without even thinkin of it. and its got a sun roof!

Pros: evrything

Cons: nuthing

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
