    Reliable yet sometimes possessed.

    2008 Dodge Avenger SE

    I have had my avenger for a good number of years. When I first got it, I felt like I was driving the batmobile. There's plenty of space for me and my family, and we're big people. The ride is smooth, generally. It has had it is share of mechanical issues. The shifter assembly went out/melted in the heat. The passenger door stopped locking and now will not open from the inside. The same side window motor went out. The radio antenna tends to change the station on its own. There was a thermostat leak, transmission failure, fuel pump malfunction, but a lot of that could be due to age. I do not like the fact that the car battery is behind the front fender and I have to take it to a shop to change the battery (which is something I could do myself if it was in a better spot). Overall, this car has been good to me. I plan on keeping it as long as it still has life in it.

    It's a great car that's fun to drive in and it is quite comfortable.

    2008 Dodge Avenger SE

    I've had the vehicle for about two years now and I haven't had any issues with it. The seats are very comfortable and easy to adjust. The AC and the heating work wonderfully. I love traveling in my car and even driving to work or school can be fun. The speakers are really good and there are many settings to adjust for bass and everything. The headlights are awesome and the brights are incredible. The sunroof is a nice addition. Overall, I really love my car and I'm happy with the purchase.

    - Courtney F

    Dodge avenger is an economical car that performs well.

    2008 Dodge Avenger SE

    My avenger performs well and was more reasonably priced than other vehicles I looked at before purchasing. I like the ease of driving and the added amenities such as the sunroof, roomy back seat, trunk space and easy to get in and out of with kids. I feel that an avenger is a safe vehicle to drive and gets good gas mileage. Mine is grey with grey interior, I have had it several years. I would recommend it to others and perhaps even buy a newer one.

    Reliable, fast dodge, she will not let you down.

    2008 Dodge Avenger SE

    I have extreme electrical problems or what I believe to be electrical problems with my car. The time never remains the same. However I do like the speed of the vehicle and the style. I do not like that it is not as spacious as I would want it to be. One of the other good things about the car is that it is reliable it is starts up every time. The heat is amazing in the wintertime as well.

    - Wanda H

    Dodge avenger like the car not the problems

    2008 Dodge Avenger SE

    So far I have replaced the alternator with a genuine part at the dealership. It was pretty expensive going through the dealership but they did the labor for free because the alternator went right after buying the car. I love the style and the way it drives. Right now I am needing to replace the wheel bearing which the dealership has told me is going to cost me 350 dollars to replace.

    It has been beat up and abused and very easy to clean up and very little stains.

    2008 Dodge Avenger SE

    No real issues with this car it is a very reliable durable car for the money you would spend on it.. The normal wear and tear as normal but it has most definitely held up. It has great gas mileage and does excellent on the highway. It does not have very comfortable seats. They are very rough and itchy. The overall comfort is great. Big back seat for the actual size.

    - tash D

    It has great gas mileage!

    2008 Dodge Avenger SE

    Been very happy with it. All owners have taken really good care of it. Drives smooth, all programs and buttons are easy to use, and gets great mileage! Only have to change oil and switch tires every now and again. Most repairs have been needed after the normal wear and tear ( brake pads ) and simple enough to do on my own!

    - Morgan H

    A great black beauty the holds up very well with age.

    2008 Dodge Avenger SE

    My dodge avenger is a great car. I have had it since 2008, and I haven't had any major issues at all. I have about 127,000 miles on it. Everything still works well. I do have a slight issue with the trunk. I have to actually let it drop to close on its own. If I try to close it, the latch will not connect to lock it.

    - NaTasha L

    great economical and reliable sedan

    2008 Dodge Avenger SE

    this vehicle is very reliable and runs great. It is very roomy and the stereo system is great. The air conditioner works very strong even in extreme over 100 degree weather. The car gets great gas mileage. It handles great on curves and on the freeways and highways. It is easy to find a mechanic for repairs.

    - Caroline R

    Nothing really interesting. Only mode of transportation now. Want a newer car.

    2008 Dodge Avenger SE

    Problem with dashboard sensor. When it rains heavily all lights on dashboard light up. There is a constant knocking sound on passenger side of car near glove compartment when starting the car and when reversing. Had to put a lot of money in repairs. Alternator issues also. Just changed about 2 months ago.

    - Joel C

    2008 silver dodge avenger sedan has been a great vehicle.

    2008 Dodge Avenger SE

    Excellent gas mileage. Reliable. Sleek style. Love the silver color. With routine maintenance has been running well with 150,000 miles on it. Battery replaced once. Interior has ample legroom in back seats. Minor electronic issues that have been repaired. Overall an excellent car for the price paid.

    - Susan R

    Nice car, good color. Easy to clean. Need more space.

    2008 Dodge Avenger SE

    Nice, good engine, comfort about chairs. Easy to attack the car seat. Small space, small trunk. Clear mirrors. The rear mirrors has blur when rain or fog. Need to have more space. The color is good, the paint not come out when go carwash. Easy to clean in and out. Easy to take the battery out.

    - Mia N

    The good and bad, showing common issues.

    2008 Dodge Avenger SE

    Good car. Tire pressure sensor known to be an issue. Good on gas. Decent in the winter months. Sometimes window will stick when below 0 weather hits. Handles turns well. Audio system is good. Trunk tends to hold water when heavy rain gets on vehicle. Trunk has plenty of storage capacity

    - Erica W

    Loving the cruise control!

    2008 Dodge Avenger SE

    Air conditioning broke and a new replacement is too expensive for me to afford right now. Also had to get a new alternator twice in 5 years. Drives smooth though, and pretty affordable for weekly gas to and from work plus other errands. As long as there's regular upkeep, it's a winner!

    - Brittany M

    My Dodge A dependable and economical car and safe performances.

    2008 Dodge Avenger SE

    My car is so dependable and since I got it never give me any problem. Very good in gas. I make sure I change oil every year and I change filter have tune up every 3 years. Dodge Avenger is spacious and comfortable to drive and has ABS that keeps me from sliding in the winter time.

    - Eva E

    Really beautiful interior

    2008 Dodge Avenger SE

    It's a really good long-standing car. I have not had to get it fixed throughout the time I've had it. Just basic oil change and check up once a year will do the trick. I would say it is the most reliable car I've ever had and if I had the option to buy it again I definitely would!

    - Nicole A

    Great family car and amazingly smooth

    2008 Dodge Avenger SE

    I love my car because it is long lasting and great gas mileage. I have had it almost two years and very little have I had to replace. It drives smooth and is a great family car. The radio system is amazing and the car has great stability. I would recommend this car to anyone

    - April P

    My car is exceptional for the mileage on it. Great engine.

    2008 Dodge Avenger SE

    Have had to replace alternator, fuel pump. My car as 282,000 miles on it and it keeps on running. Cannot beat the engine that it had. Awesome vehicle. I will drive it until it just quits. It has been a great car for long highway trips and comfort and gas mileage are great.

    - Margaret T

    2008 Dodge Avenger in white

    2008 Dodge Avenger SE

    Overall runs really well no major problems. Has a sporty look while still being good on gas. Interior finish rubs off over time. Plenty of room in all seats and has a big trunk. Has all standard features, air, electric windows, CD player/radio, aux, charging port.

    - Amanda D

    Dependable, low maintenance family vehicle.

    2008 Dodge Avenger SE

    I have had it for many years and have had no real issues with it. Besides breaks, and new tires I haven't had to repair anything. Rides nice. Dependable. Still going strong. The interior is not fantastic but it is nice. Plenty of trunk room. Good family vehicle.

    2008 Dodge Avenger Review

    2008 Dodge Avenger SE

    The car drives really smooth. It has an installed Bluetooth/satellite radio, seats are very comfortable, lots of legroom, big backseat that's great for children. It's very easy to check the fluids in the car and change the oil. The tires are easy to find.

    - Stephanie H

    This car gets awesome gas mileage, even for an older car.

    2008 Dodge Avenger SE

    I love my car. It gets great gas mileage. It runs great even for a used car. My own personal issue is this, I have knee problems, and it's a little difficult for me to get in and out of sometimes because of how low it sits. Otherwise this is a great car.
