Reliable, but doesn't last forever.

My Dodge Avenger is such a nice car, but lately, I've been running into a lot of problems. The timing belt was replaced a couple years ago and it already needs a new one. Also, every pulley in the car needs to be replaced. The sounds it makes is awful. I keep getting an engine light that's telling me I have a random misfire. I need to jump my car almost daily due to electrical issues. My vehicle has been taken care of very well, but I guess no matter how well you take care of a car, it's going to have issues at some point.

Dodge Avenger is the perfect car who just wants a practical well rounded vehicle.

I love my 2009 Dodge Avenger! It is a 4 cylinder and gets pretty good mileage. I’d guess around 30-35 mpg. It is top speed According to my speedometer is 118 mph. It is a 4 door with plenty of legroom for everyone. The trunk is massive and one of the back seats folds down. I am a fisherman so it works perfect to fold the seat down and put my rods in the trunk and over the folded seat. It is lights are so good I hardly ever use my brights. I hit a pheasant and it didn't do any damage at all.

Great car for new drivers, will last a long time.

The quality cloth seats are comfortable and offer enough support for long trips. The backseat is surprisingly spacious. The only thing I didn't like was the typical four cylinder attributes of shaking when going 60+ mph and the lack of acceleration I desire. Breaking is great, and it held up rather well over the years. There is a slight problem with the tire pressure gauge and if your gas cap is lose, it will cause the 'check engine' light to stay on.
