"I purchased this car during the gas price explosion. I was driving a Dodge Durango. (loved it except the gas mileage). I traded in the Durango for the Avenger, it had about 10,000 miles. I love that it is flex fuel! I have saved soooo much money by using Ethanol based gasoline (I have rec'd a rebate for $450 from Illinois for using E-85 which happens to be made in the area)I have driven it from Chicago area to So. Florida twice. Highway travel is comfortable. I have had some repairs made, but under warrantee and purchased extended warrantee. Front suspension & struts (internal defect), replaced front axle assembly, replaced outer tie rod ends w/align.
I live in the country and travel 30 miles each way to work. The winters are brutal. I miss my Durango this time of year! I have had no problems related to weather yet. I am happy with this car. Gas mileage is great."
"I bought this car in early 2009 when the economy was tanking. Needless to say, I got this car dirt cheap. However, the car is gorgeous and loaded. It runs very smooth and is very comfortable to drive. I hope to enjoy it for several more years!"
