The design of the trunk is HORRIBLE. I was in the process of moving and could not fit majority of boxes in the trunk or in the backseat. The boxes were not that big.
The headlight covers have a film over them. I had a mechanic try and buff the film off to no avail. I am unable to drive at night, as the headlights are not bright enough. My only option is to buy new headlight covers.
The car also has a rattle in the front. It is a very annoying rattle. At first it was on the right front side of the car and now it is on both sides. I've had many parts replaced and it is still rattling.
The check engine light is also on. I had a diagnostics test done and they said the gas cap was not on tight enough, simple problem, and easy fix. Well the engine light did return a couple months later and I replaced an emission's part. The engine light has returned.
I also find this very strange and I'm not sure if anyone else had this problem; my windshield leaked. There were no cracks or holes in the windshield. I took it to a glass repair shop and they had to re-seal the windshield.
If you are considering buying an Avenger do not do it. I don't have any ill feelings towards Dodge, but I've had so many problems with this car. I'm just hoping the front tires fall off when the car is parked and not while I'm driving (due to the rattling noise).
