1996 Dodge Avenger 4 cylinder from North America
Good-looking, fast, fun to drive, a bargain
Lots of the small plastic parts have broken off.
The cover for the coolant keeps flying off.
I have replaced the brakes once.
The transmission sometimes gets locked up if I sit in traffic for a while, but dealer could not duplicate the problem.
Car sits very low to the ground so I have scraped the front bumper so often I had to replace it.
Really bad turning radius, you cannot do a U-turn with this car.
Very reliable, great acceleration, I've had this car since it was brand new and I kept it for over 7 years now.
Seats and interior are sharp, it looks very modern and it is comfortable for long drives.
Doors are very large and heavy, and mirrors do not fold in, so watch out or you'll ding them.
Great gas mileage, I regularly get about 29 miles per gallon highway, and you can put in regular unleaded.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I agree with the horrible turning radius on this vehicle. I always have to do a Y turn when attempting a u-turn. Every-time!
