Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
A front-drive coupe, Avenger is a corporate twin of the Chrysler Sebring, differing only in styling details. Both are built on the Mitsubishi Galant platform at a plant the Japanese company operates in Normal, Ill. They use a 2.5-liter V-6 with 163 horsepower. Both are scheduled to be redesigned for the 2001 model year, when they will again be based on the Galant platform but be styled by DaimlerChrysler.

Interior
Avenger comes in base and ES price levels, and both seat five. The front passenger seat slides forward when the backrest is tipped to ease entry to roomier-than-averagethe rear seat. The split rear seatback folds for additional cargo space. Leather seats are standard on the ES.

Exterior
The 103.7-inch wheelbase places the Avenger among small cars, but at 191 inches overall it ranks among midsize cars in exterior dimensions. Avenger's styling is marked by a low nose and high rear deck. It bears no resemblance to the Mitsubishi sedan from which it is derived.

Under the Hood
A four-cylinder engine formerly was standard in the base model but has been dropped. Both models now come with a 163-horsepower 2.5-liter V-6 and a four-speed automatic transmission.The Avenger coupe has style and more interior room that most two-door rivals, but the V-6 engine makes more noise than power.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
