I really like the baby charger styling. Engine so quiet can't tell it's running. Excellent highway cruiser. Rides bigger then it is. Only problem dodge decided to leave a spark plug tube seal out at the factory. I'm the second owner I know valve cover has never been off. I repaired it today. Other then that very satisfied with vehicle.

I've had my Avenger for 7 years and truly enjoyed driving it. It's suspension and quiet ride make it a great car for travel. I have driven it twice across the United States and it provided a lot of get up and go, as well as great handling on all types of weather, including snow. I would have kept it in the family, however my 4'9" daughter has trouble seeing over the steering wheel!

This has been the only vehicle I've owned that has actually made it to the end of a car loan. I had it up until a month ago when I sold it to my son when his truck became too expensive for him. Has over 105,000 miles & still running strong. I told him as long as he keeps up on the maintenance on it, it should last him for a good while. (I hope I haven't just jinxed him...lol)

I owned a 2008 Dodge Avenger R/T for 10 years and it never gave me any real major problems. It left me stranded once when the gear shifter broke, had to replace the window regulator on both the front and passenger side windows, and replaced the brakes twice. I see all this negativity about this car but mine lasted for 10 years and had 150,000 miles on it before it started giving me signs it was on its last leg, overall I got a pleasant 10 years out of this vehicle.

Fun to drive and very reliable

by on August 1, 2017

This car got me from place to place and I liked how it felt to drive it. It has so far been very reliable. I've had it for about 75000 miles and hope to have it until I make it until 100,000+.

act with 2.7 v6 and 4 speed transmission. Good acceleration, as fast as my friends 2002 Silverado ext. cab 4x4 with the 5.3 v8. Fuel mileage city avg. 20 hwy. Avg 28. Had the transmission replaced twice and the front end replaced once. All within the first 60,000 miles. Have a reputable mechanic inspect before you buy.

230,000 miles strong!!!

I acquired this car from my dad as a hand me down a few years into college. This car has handled 2 severe crashes and multiple 14 hour trips. I'm in the market for a new car (my parents need this one for my sister who's closer to home just in case those 230,000 miles give out) and I'm thinking of getting another avenger. I can't get myself to part with it. A few odd things were never fixed after it got T-boned. The air conditioner clicks when you turn it on, but it stops after a few seconds or if you press the air circulate button, and the check engine light is usually on. We've had the engine checked multiple times and they just said something got out of whack with the accident, but the car is safe and runs perfect. Normal car maintenance like oil changes, fluid flushes, tires, etc., but other than those 2 little annoyance things (that are easy to ignore), it's the best car on earth.
