I purchased my R/T Avenger about 5 months ago and I love to drive it. Very sporty looking with out the sporty price. The V6 has power when you need it. The sound system is nice, along with the satallite radio. I have gotten so many complements on my car!

- Very large blindspot in rear of vehicle
Purchased As New
I love my Avenger R/T. I had a 2005 Dodge Durango which I loved, but we were needing a better fuel efficient vehicle. Out of all the cars we looked at I liked this one the best. We test drove a 2008 Chevy Malibu (used) and it handled pretty poorly. We test drove a 2008 Dodge Avenger SXT and we fell in love with it. So we looked at the new ones and purchased mine. This car is so pretty on the outside and in. Handles so nice- you barely feel the bumps in the road. Leather seats are so comfortable. The only thing I don't like is that there is a very large blindspot on both sides. I am learning to get used to it, but overall this car is awesome. Has spacious trunk room....read morehide

- Looks, Get up & Go, Handling
- To much plastic inside
Purchased As New
I have had the car about 18 months. Driven it over 30K already. I bought the car with all the bells & whistles expect for the DVD & my GIG. LOVE it to death. Heated Tush warmers are necessary with the leather seats. The 3.5 moves when you ask it to and gets me where I want to go with about 18+ around town and 24+ on the highway. No problems to speak of. Fit and finish is acceptable.
I have an Orange R/T and there aren't many of them around (if any)...read morehide

- Great looks, good on gas, its fun to drive!
- I wish I got the dark blue color.
I get so many compliments on my Avenger, I opted for the spoiler, plus its got some bold curves to it and it responds well on the road. I cant see myself getting rid of this car. You should really try one!

- Love my Avenger Compliments on what a great looking car. It is a joy to drive.
- Interior is plastic overload. Rotors went and had to be serviced.
I truly love this car. I drove the Dodge Charger and loved the seating. Avenger seating is uncomfortable after 20/30 minutes or so on a long drive. I rearrange my body...I chalk it up to heated seat system. Do love the heated seats no matter what anyone says - nice to get warmed up on a cold day here in New England. I do use the chill box on long trips. I need to keep my medication cool and this serves its purpose. The bottle/cup cooler is great... works best keeping the bottle cold/warm vs. trying to warm up or cool down an item. Plenty of room. Cargo trunk is huge, easily accessible. Love the Dodge service. They treat me like family and even after a year of ownership, the sales department helps me with minor questions and greets me every time. The V6 engine gets up and out of the way on highways...I use the 6 speed manual in snowstorms as the FWD doesn't do to well. Once popped in 1st gear, this Avenger is up and out of the snow. I had the windows tinted - really sporty looking now.
My kids wish I would give it to them. Fat chance. The GIG system works great. Blue tooth, nav, just wish Dodge had put the phone button on the steering wheel... difficult to reach over to start/end a call from driver's seat....read morehide

- I like the 3.5 v6 engine mated to the six speed transmission.
- Brakes could use some beefing up,they do not take much to cause vibrating.
I have owned my 2008 Avenger RT for two months and the only negetive I have noticed where the brake rotors which the dealer replaced at no charge and the problem never came back. I love the ride and handling of the suspension on the RT. The car seems to be nimble and I like the 3.5's response at most speeds. The transmission shifts reasonably well however there is a little rough shift at times but is tolerable. Style,what can say but I love it,what a nice looking car,I have at least two or three people a week tell me what a nice looking car it is. The only thing I would like to see in the future is the plastics on the interior,a softer touch. I have drivin all three levels of this car and I would say pay the extra for the RT level. What a fun car....read morehide
