2012 dodge advenger 86,000 miles. Had the car for 2 years. Love the room and style. But huge blind spot and major front brake issues. Even taking to les scwab and needs new brakes after a month. Even with regular oil changes a knocking noise from engine compartment. Foul smell when ac is on even after replacing the ac Filter. Just yesterday all my dash lights went crazy and my tranny wouldn't shift and the max speed I could drive was 35mph. Possible battery issue or pcm issue, waiting to hear. I have the 2.4 liter 4cyl and I like the power. Haven't had any major repair issues til know but brakes get expensive changing often. My model only shows 1 recall with head restraint. Overall so far been good but thinking of trading it in after issues everyone else is having.
I bought this car with 35,000 miles on it. It has been and okay car. It doesn't drive like it did when I first purchased it. I have put new tires on it and had a wheel alignment. The trunk holds a lot of water in it when it rains and comes out threw the close latch. My air bag light has been on for 6 days now. I took it too the shop today and all they did was re-program it but the light is still on. I'm calling the recall place back today because he told me the ORC module needs to be replaced and its part of their recall. I think I'm going to trade this car for an malibu or impala.
I love my car. I do have issues with the cruise control sometimes it works and some times it doesn't. No engine light however. Now I did have a accident and the repair time was quick and look fantastic when done , outside of an issue we wont go into here, nothing to do with car itself. I had a 2011 bought used had less than 30days and blew the head gasket and they gave me a whole different car, my choice, my choice of make, model but I really liked the Avenger so I chose a 2012. All good for me. I do not like the cd player and am thinking about installing a different one, there is a stuck cd in it now. Being a Jeep person hence the name of mine, I do like this this car. I will possibly go back to Jeep if I can, if not maybe another Avenger? I dont understand why they had to make it so close to the Charger? Outside of the front grill it is alot alike. If you take care of it , oil changes and all that, tires....this car I think would last a long time. Ive put 30,000 on it this past year.
