2008 Dodge Avenger R/T Review
Muscle Car Wannabe
Aggressively styled and packing a 3.5-liter V6 engine, the Dodge Avenger R/T is a reliable daily driver that dreams of being a bona-fide muscle car. Boasting a respectable 235 horsepower and 232 pound-feet of torque, the Avenger offers decent boost out of the gate. Unfortunately, this wannabe muscle car's dreams of speed are hampered down by a slow-to-act automatic transmission. However, while this mid-size sedan isn't much of a racer, there are dozens of convenient features to help compensate, such as steering wheel-mounted audio controls, leather-trimmed bucket seats, power-heated foldaway mirrors and an air-conditioned storage box able to hold four soda cans.
Warranty/Service: 3-year/36,000-mile warranty; 5-year/100,000-mile outer body rust-through warranty; powertrain lifetime limited warranty.
