2008 Dodge AvengerVisitor, Gouverneur, NY, October 26, 2011 08:17i bought a 2008 avenger from "the show room floor" i put the first mile on it...this car is junk. Once in a while when i am at a stop light the car will ether lunge forward or stall. I almost hit 3 kids crossing the road one day, another time it lunged out in front of a tractor trailer. it has been in the shop since I bought it. they say nothing they can do, the car dealer I bought it from said they have 8 dodge avengers that are having the same problem. I talked to Chrysler and they won't do anything about it. Will never buy a dodge again..
2008 Dodge AvengerVisitor, Horse Cave, KY, September 18, 2011 07:392008 Dodge Avenger I bought this car from a dealer in 2008. It turned out that it was a rental car and everyone knows that people drive the mess out of rental cars because it's not theirs. The car has been a dream up until August 2011. I've replaced one set of brake pads and I had to replace the intake manifold control sensor. I keep the oil changed, etc. Now, it sounds like a lawn mower/race car sound if I'm driving 50mph and over. The car doesn't shake or anything. I've had the front end aligned and had the tires balanced and rotated, but I can still hear it. I replaced a tire, but this sound still annoys me. I don't know if it is the engine itself or if is still something warped on the front passenger's side. When you slow down from top speeds, it sounds like it's a tire issue. I don't want to spend a fortune replacing tires if the problem is something else. This sound is annoying to me so I listen to my music turned all the way up so I don't have to listen to it. Does anyone know what could be causing this sound?
2008 Dodge AvengerVisitor, Monroe, MI, October 02, 2010 07:20I bought this car in Dec 2009. Brakes and rotors replaced in April 2008. Now brake problem again. They grind sometimes when stopping esp if its been raining. (when you need them to work the most). Inside is loud. Cooler stopped working in Feb. I wish I had reviewed it BEFORE I got it.
2008 Dodge AvengerVisitor, Palmdale, CA, July 15, 2010 09:27I purchased my 2008 Dodge Avenger RT in January 2008. The car currently has 36000 miles on it. I do regular maintenance and use Mobil Fully synthetic oil. I have not experienced any mechanical issues with this. Additionally, the stereo system and speakers are awesome. This car is a lot of fun to drive. I am extremely pleased with my decision to purchase this car.
2008 Dodge Avengersteve steve steve, Sandy, OR, July 14, 2010 23:15I bought my 08' Dodge Avenger in 2008. It is now 07/2010 and the car finally died on me. My car has 76k miles. I change the oil every 3 to 4 months. In 03/2010 I turned the car in at Jiffy Lube for a full tune up. I noticed that within 30 days or so I was indicating an oil light. The engine was dry as a bone as if someone drained the oil pan! I added 2 quarts of oil about every 3 weeks or so as needed when before it indicated the oil light. The car never over heated, there's not a single stain or drop of oil anywhere on the engine or in my driveway. The car never stalled or puttered. I thought maybe a loose Oil filter or worn seals or a bad oil pump. I checked all over this car and everything seems to be in perfect order. One day I was on the highway heading home and once again the oil light suddently came on. Within a 1/4 mile the car lost 90% of its compression and started knocking. I do not understand what could have gone wrong. I asked several of my mechanic friends and they are all stumped. Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated. I owe $13K on a car that does not run anymore.Rookie
2008 Dodge Avengerbasilfaulty, Elkton, MD, July 10, 2010 05:59Biggest piece of crap I have ever owned. Mine is a 2008 with 92000 miles on it. So far 3 sets of door speakers (listen to talk radio) 4 alternators (bad decoupler pulley) 1 a/c compressor, 1 idler pulley, cooling cup holder worked for only a year and now is bad ( no longer under warranty), mirror switch has a mind of its own, front end shakes, original front rotors are junk...buy A/M much better, Steering column makes noise at the bottom of the shaft, transmission shift hangs up once in a while or slips and the dealer can't seem to find anything wrong (done this since 10k miles or so) High mount stop light bulb blows constantly ...no longer replace it, probably because it gets water on it from the trunk lid getting water in it, water leak inside car from the a/c condensate drain tube coming out of the hole in the floor (the hose is a bit short and comes out easily, I put it back and RTV'd it in the hole so it wont come out anymore) Most people are probably thinking I am a kid and hard on cars...I am in my mid 40's and the vehicle has all highway miles on it, I am in sales and listen to talk radio all day while on the road. I bought the car because of being midsize with decent mileage, and unlimited powertrain warranty. The car gets regular maintenance and has had Mobil 1 from 1st oil change and never wrecked. I can't wait until I am no longer upside down to get rid of this piece of crap, if the car makes it that long.Rookie
