Pros: What do you like about your 2008 Dodge Avenger?
It is really a cute car. I used to have a true sports car, but I wanted a car that is not too fancy (expensive repairs) but is comfortable, big enough to carry the equipment I need for my job, but not too big so that it is easy to maneuver and park. Honestly I needed something I enjoy driving and like the way it looks, but not something that begs to be stolen or is too "precious" to be driven for my work.
I love this car! Good gas mileage, above average acceleration for a 4 cylinder, good size, and did I mention it is cute?
Cons: How would you improve your 2008 Dodge Avenger?
I do not like the seat design-- it seems to be a new Dodge thing but I have had to add a support so that the headrest didn't hit my head at a weird spot.
I did get some options, but I should have gotten more to increase comfort.
Also, the wheels are a bit wimpy. I ended up replacing two wheels and rims on separate occasions within the first 6 months, but I probably had not adjusted from driving the Durango I had been driving as a primary vehicle for the two prior years.
2008 Dodge Avenger Review:
I have had my Avenger for two years and I have very few complaints. If I had it to do over again, the only thing I would change is to get more of the options. I have read some reviews where people complained of a lot of mechanical issues, but I drive mine for work and I really do NOT baby it, but I have had no problems thus far. When I first got it I had a hard time with the wheels (switching from a Durango) -- I ruined one rim, two tires, and bent two other rims that didn't have to be replaced within the first six months. I really use my car, but I keep up on the scheduled maintenance and everything works well. It is a good car that is practical for me to drive, and it is very cute! A lot of my co-workers would like one, and a few have also gotten one too!
