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

Cool Car Worth A Look — I never thought I would say this about Dodge, but the company can make cars that are fun to drive. This was the case for the R/T version of the Avenger. Almost everything was pretty great from the already powerful 3.5L V6 pumping out 235 HP mated to the 6-speed AutoStick, the Boston speakers which makes everything come to life, the MYGIG/Navigation setup and ease of use and plenty of interior space for stuff or friends. If you want better fuel economy, you can go down to the 4 cylinder or the mid-level V6 but those engines will leave you wanting more power. All in all though, a good first shot from Dodge in trying to have a stand-out product in the highly competitive mid-size class. It's definitely worth taking a test drive.

Pros: cool styling, punchy V6, roomy interior, side-curtain airbags standard, MYGIG Navigation responsive, Boston speakers sound awesome, AutoStick very fun to use

Cons: only gripe goes to 16/26 fuel economy for the 3.5L V6, would consider the 4 cylinder or mid-level 6 cylinder if it had more power and at least a 5-speed automatic with AutoStick

Awesome Car! — I love my car. It gets over 30 mpg and handles smoothly on the road. Plenty of room for my son and with the 60000 mile warranty I don't have to pay out of pocket for any repairs. Plenty of trunk space and having sirius satellite radio already subscribed to isn't half bad either.

Pros: gas mileage, design

Cons: wish mine had the dvd player

Love The Chargette — Love this car, only thing I am unhappy with lots of blind spots.Good pickup, nice design. I have owned a few dodge cars and I have been very happy so far. I get lots of second glances driving this car and lots of comments, nice car.I would recommend.This is a nice looking , so different in styling compared to all the other cars on the market.

Pros: Styling, pickup

Cons: Blind spots

My Car — Gas mileage and it looks great! I didn't know what to think about the color at first, but I really like it. The gas tank is a pretty big one for the size of car (17 gallons), so I usually try and fill up around half a tank. And the radio is dy-no-mite!

Pros: Gas mileage

Cons: I'm usually the only one in it
