The 2008 Dodge Avenger is powered by a standard 173-horsepower 2.4-liter 4-cylinder World Engine and is mated to a 4-speed automatic transaxle. A flex-fuel 189-horsepower 2.7-liter V6 version and a 235-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 paired with a new 6-speed automatic with Auto Stick are available options. Taking a cue from the Dodge Ram, the Avenger’s center stack has a V-like ram’s horn shape that surrounds the gated shifter bezel and features dual heating and air conditioning vents. The interior features more headroom, shoulder room, hip room in the front seat and drivers sit higher than the previous model. The Avenger offers many unique features including a chilled beverage storage called Chill Zone, housed in the passenger side upper instrument panel with the ability to hold and chill as many as four 12 oz. beverage cans. Other features include a heated/cooled front cupholder, YES Essentials Fabric, heated cloth seats, LED interior lighting in both front and rear seats, MP3 play capability on all audio systems and MyGIG information and entertainment system.

Pros: It looks great!
Cons: On 6/25/10, my daughter and I traveled to Hollywood, CA from Bakersfield, CA. On our way home, around 11:30pm, we stopped at the gas station and the gearshift was stuck into park. We tried everything and was unable to move he gearshift. My family arrived in Hollywood to assist up around 3:00am. My brother-in-law removed the consol where the gearshift was placed and messed around with a piece of pink plastic that he stated had something to do with the gearshift. After 30 minutes, he was able to put the car into drive. When arriving home in Bakersfield, we were unabel to take the car out of park again. This problem shoul be recalled by Dodge. This was a trip that could have turned deadly.
Overall review: Make sure the gearshift is replace before purchasing this vehicle by the dealer. This is a Huge Safety Issue and very costly.
