I have had my v6 97 dodge avenger(w/ 62K miles) for a little over 4 years now. It was babied and never driven in snow its entire life till me. It looks great and the car is somewhat reliable. I found out the hard way that the ball joints on the car are recalled. my exhaust has had 2 leaks and its all in one area that they dont make a part for anymore. I got the v6 and cant change the spark plugs due to the intake. The suspention is good for corners but do not expect smooth bumps. Paint is fading. Lots of torque in the snow so be careful. interior is great. i have noticed a leak in the ceiling that i dont know where it is coming from. Car is hard to maintain. All that aside. Very fun car.
