Biggest money pit I have ever owned

This car has given me more trouble especially with electrical issues, but SO MANY other parts have needed replaced and I have sunk over $4,000 in repairs in the 2 years I’ve had it. I only bought it for $2000! These cars are JUNK just ask any good mechanic. I have also recently bought a Chrysler 200 which has almost the EXACT SAME ISSUES! I have owned many cars and none have been as crappy or such m money pit as Dodge and Chrysler! Stay away from any of their cars because they apparently only put effort into their TRUCKS. if you want a reliable vehicle look at Toyotas, Mazda, Nissan, Volvo. American made cars just keep getting more expensive and they just keep making them cheaper and not ment to last long. It saddens me to say that because my entire family works for American car manufacturers but unfortunately now they don’t build cars to last, they have a goal of getting you into the dealership as often as possible to continue milking you for money because cars that cost $30,000 and more just isn’t greedy enough for the American car companies.


Great car . . . best I've had!

I've owned my 2010 Avenger since 2012, so it's been 8 years. It now has almost 118,000 miles and is still running great, with no major repairs . . . just routine tires, oil changes, and brakes. I live in MI, so it's been weather tested . . . handles great in snow too! It's a 4 cyl, so good on gas, and my friends are surprised how much get- up- and- go she has! Very sporty/good looking and comfortable car! I want to purchase another, if I can find one with very low mileage, since they quit making them in 2014. Great overall vehicle!


Bad electrical problem

The battery connection get lose an burn up voltage regulator which couses low voltage an effects the transmission an battery an airbags I will not recommend any Dodge product to my family and friends


Very reliable and economical car to drive

Been very dependable. Have replaced brakes and tires recently. Have had the engine reviewed and replaced belts, power steering pump and thermostats. Nice that back seats fold down for transporting cargo.


Trouble free for 10 years

I purchased my 2009 Dodge Avenger new in May 2009. I never had a major problem all the time I've owned it. Good power for a 4 cylinder engine.


It was my first new vehicle it has had one owner

This car has been reliable and we have used a lot between Grand forks and Fargo great gas mileage. By far the best vehicle I've ever owned


nice riding car

love it. great ride always liked dodges own a dodge ram also the avenger is a mid sized car four wheel disk breaks and its loaded. I traded in my 2003 NEON so this was definitely a up grade


2009 Dodge Avenger

This car is very reliable. I have driven it around San Diego for around 2 years, and it has worked very well for me.


My First Car

This is car is not a good idea for a first vehicle at a young age. I came across an enormous amount of mechanical issues.


Bery reliable

I bought my Avenger new in 09 and it now has 193000 miles on it. A lot of highway driving from Michigan to Texas several times a year. 27 to 35 mpg.
