2009 Dodge Avenger SXT FWDReview

A Cheaper Sebring...a Terrible Car Still But Slightly Better In One Way — If you read my Chrysler Sebring review you would know I believe its the worst car I've ever driven. The Avenger is basically exactly the same. The Avenger gets the same 2.7L V6 which is absolutely pathetic in terms of acceleration. The steering feel is exactly the same, lifeless. Lastly the handling is just plain rubbish. The interior of the Avenger is much cheaper so more of the disgusting plastic is present here with less of the more metal touches the Sebring has. The only good thing the Avenger has is better seats, I found the Sebring seats most unbearable. The Avenger seats seem to be Caliber seats, bearable but still not good. The Avenger has the same problems as the Sebring so its electronics will be giving you some trouble. Fuel economy is not that good. It looks mildly better than the Sebring, but has a generic Dodge look. The Avenger is still a terrible car. If you try any other car you'll find its an inferior product.

Pros: The drink chilling cup holders, seats mildly better than the Sebring's

Cons: Everything else is still terrible

2009 Dodge Avenger R/T FWDReview
Back Seats:
Cargo Capacity:
Family Car:
Fuel Economy:
Front Seats:
Maintenance Cost:

Best Value Car Available — the performance is very good for a diesel, its the 2.0 turbodiesel with 140hp, the braking is perfect, handeling could be better when cornering. the build quality is correct for its price. appearance , it looks though and sporty on the outside but its ugly plastic interior makes it look like a japanese car from the 80's. cost of ownership ; this realy is the best part ; very low gas cosumption and an excellent maintance facility. fun to drive ; yes... but you really need to remove those factory "khumo" tires...

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: price/performance/looks

Cons: plastic interior/build quality
