Midsized sedans are particularly popular among families, businesspeople, and commuters. These cars are also popular rental vehicles due to their size and durability. Midsized sedans have gained a popular and successful niche market in the U.S. If you are looking for midsized sedans from the used car market, then you should avoid the Chrysler Sebring and the Dodge Avenger. Both of these models have been upgraded and largely improved last year, but the older models have low customer satisfaction ratings and some potentially costly drawbacks. Before making your salvage vehicle purchase, consider the following advantages and drawbacks of midsized sedans.
The older Sebring and the Avenger models received low quality ratings when first introduced on the market. For some, the vehicles did not perform as expected. These two models had a better success rate as rental vehicles, while everyday owners remained disappointed with the performance and features. The vehicles boasted a relatively modest interior and exterior bodywork. While this design made the vehicles affordable, some experts believe that these midsized sedans sacrificed design perks for low-quality components.
From a conventional dealership, the Sebring and the Avenger come equipped with a 2.4-liter engine. The vehicles also have a four-speed transmission system. For the long-term, many drivers question the mechanical soundness of these two models. In the same price range, you can invest in a salvaged V6 engine midsized sedan.
