2011 Dodge Avenger Owner Comments

problem #1

  • 15,000 miles


I bought this car brand new off the lot and have owned it for 2 years. The back of the car sways in the back, which I did not notice this at first being the driver, but passengers did. As time went on it got worse and I began noticing it in the front. The back end sways anytime you hit a bump and in the winter the back end is all over the place. I've been driving in winter weather for 10 years now and never had so much anxiety until driving this car. The back end makes hollow clicking noises from time to time like something is going to just "pop off". the steering wheel pulls to the right (even after all alignments, tires checked). When you attempt to push on the gas after being stopped the car stalls a great deal. The left rear suspension has been replaced already, the sway bar tightened, camber bushings done and there are still issues with the above but the dealer states "nothing is wrong". I have had my car in the dealership numerous of times for all of this not to mention the bubbling of the paint on the hood, the trunk leaking water and a few recalls. I plan on trading this car in asap and will not be purchasing another Dodge. I spent way too much money on a car to have this many issues with barely 20,000 miles on it.
