The Dodge Avenger is a very reliable and well-built car. I like the room inside of the vehicle. I also like the durability of the vehicle. The interior is made of good quality. It has a decent amount of power and smooth transitions. I have driven approximately 75,000 miles, and it only has minor wear and tear. It has held up over time, and I have no issues with the electric parts of the vehicle. The only problem I have had is a click noise that started recently. The noise comes on a few seconds after you open or close the car down. I am not sure if it is something with the lights or antenna, because I haven't had a chance to get it looked at. I maintain the vehicle with regular oil changes. If you maintain the car and clean it regularly, it will last. I always wax the vehicle, and it i... (more)
Story
I traveled to Las Vegas with my children, and it is a six-hour trip for me. It was a smooth ride through the desert and gave me piece of mind knowing it was a reliable vehicle. My family had plenty of room to rest and relax on the way.
Pros
The size and gas mileage are my favorite things. It is a great size to allow for leg room for back passengers but not too large that the gas is expensive.
Cons
Over time, it doesn't have as much power as it used to. It takes a while to shift gears, but once it gets going it's fine.

The Dodge Avenger is a car that is slightly behind in tech compared to other cars. It still comes with a CD player, doesn't have Bluetooth, no seat warmers, or any fancy add-ons. What you get is simplicity. The handling is great, and it's a nice sense of being in control. The interior is comfortable, plenty of room to move around. And the trunk has a surprising amount of space to it. It's a straightforward car design that you'll see over and over again. While someone might think it's generic, they would be wrong, because the manufacturer decided to make several changes to the car that are best described as questionable. Want to change the battery? It's located in front of the driver side tire. You wanna jump start the car? You get one red sign that says "connect here". Questionable is ... (more)
Story
I remember acting like the car was essentially a truck when I helped someone move. It felt like we packed everything in their house into my car, had plenty of room for it.
Pros
Replaceable parts are cheap and plentiful. Very roomy and comfortable. Huge trunk. Good handling.
Cons
Technology is outdated. Engine parts locations make no sense. Battery is behind the driver side wheel, you have to take off the wheel to change the battery. Weak hoses in the engine. A whole lot of smaller issues that no one has answers to.

The staff was very friendly. When we went to look at a care they were very helpful and they found the car we wanted on the lot. This car which we didn’t know at the time was missing some parts (mostly cosmetic things). All were replaced on site and the sale associate lowered the price to because of the missing parts. The sales associate accepted our loan from a different bank with no issues or suggestions that we should go to their finance team. Overall very hassle free and a good deal to buy though.
