I brought my 1st car in 2003. A few months later, I crashed in a very weird chicken accident that caused a four car pile up. Thankfully, we survived.
It’s never let me down. It may not be the sexiest car, but I don’t think I could have handled sexy at that point.
Times have changed.
Now I can handle the big “S”.
Which brings me to Chrysler’s Avenger. I had the opportunity to test drive the Avenger, on a 25+ mile stretch from Tarry Town to Midtown, Manhattan. I have to admit, I was sold before the drive. I liked the designs’ angles and curves. I also liked that it was a roomy, compact car. The size made it perfect for parking in the streets of New York, where parking is always a challenge. Yet it was roomy enough to fit both my sons, as well as two of their friends, comfortably. Or, if you are a family with multiple small children, you can easily fit two car seats and one additional person in the back.
I drove the car during a bad thunderstorm in New York City, which limited how fast I could go. However, based on my discussions with the designer, I am sure it would handle speed well. What the storm did let me test out were the car’s capabilities during bad weather. I felt safe inside, the tires didn’t hydroplane, and the ride was smooth. I would also like to note that the vehicle has front and side airbags, a tire pressure monitor (LOVE!) and 4 Wheel ABS.
