The manufacturer was not notified of the issue. More importantly as a major safety issue, me and my daughter were stuck inside my car for an hour and a half because the electrical issue would not allow any of the doors to unlock. Car was repaired with new spark plugs, new air filter, and a throttle body cleaning. Car towed to nearest pep boys and they could not diagnose. Please recall this part on the cars before someone gets hurt or killed, I do not want it to be me or one of my children riding in my car that ends up getting killed from an automobile accident because Dodge was not made to recall these faulty parts on their Avengers. Looks like a common problem within the throttle body with the throttle positions sensor with 2008-2010 model.
I have had to keep exchanging new alternators as many as 4 times before finding a good one. While driving 35 mph the vehicle lost power and refused to accelerate the vehicle was towed into the dealership and upon examination it was determined that the throttle body needed to be replaced. The failure mileage was 140,000. Or if I am stopped, the car jerks forward while trying to accelerate. Try one of the auto shops near you. Car towed to brewbaker Dodge and kept for two 2 days with no trouble found at great inconvenience to myself. Is he the best and most powerful? The manufacturer was not made aware of the issue.
The vehicle was not repaired. I am unable to accelerate past 20 mph. If you don't like messing with it, at least now you will know what the problem is and the shop can't pad the repair with stuff you don't need. Nothing worked like it should. The vehicle was not diagnosed.
Once the car completely stalls out, it loses power steering and braking capabilities which is going to cause an accident and get someone killed. This is a newer car and there is no logical reason to have this much ongoing trouble with the throttle body except some kind of defect. The vehicle was not diagnosed. The contact stated that while driving 45 mph, the instrument panel cluster lost power and remains powerless. An optional navigation system and a touch-screen audio interface can be annoying to use, even though it appreciates the storage of digital music and real-time traffic capabilities. The vehicle was not taken to be diagnosed or repaired. It is also very dangerous.
But in August 2014 it started acting up again. May 22, 2018 The 4-cylinder 2. The next day I went and had the whole throttle body replaced January 2013. Luckily it was when I was in parking lots. The failure and the current mileage 54,000. It is also very dangerous. The manufacturer was not notified of the issue.
Pulled over attepted to reset like the manual said to, no such luck, called in and took the car to dealership. But in August 2014 it started acting up again. Heated air only exits the driver's side windshield and driver's side dash vents. My hazard light also do nit work. The manufacturer was not contacted.
The contact stated that while traveling 65 mph the gauges suddenly stopped functioning correctly. Pulled over attepted to reset like the manual said to, no such luck, called in and took the car to dealership. I plan on pursuing this issue until there is some sort of resolution for customers that have these model cars from Dodge. The 2008-2010 Dodge Avenger is known for electrical issues and electrical fires. Starter replaced with towing and diagnostics covered by extended warranty and I paid for non-covered tax.
He gave me a campaign 32502195 as he opened an investigation into this issue. Thought the glass had broken. It would run fine and on occasion the throttle control light would come on. Tried starting it but it would start and stall and idle rough before it stalled out the check engine light with the etc light came were on. In October 2013 I started to have the same problems, the throttle body light would come on and the car would sputter like it couldn'¿¿t pick up speed or it would rev up while I was slowing down.
I know that the biggest review companies bash anything that is not a Camry or deal, but the Avenger is a good car! You will also need to remove the input speed sensor. The car was driven approximately one 1 mile and parked at no time did the vehicle accelerate to a speed higher than 15 mph and the indicator light continued to be present. Also could be bad new battery, especially from Walmart or Rural King. The dealer has the tools to monitor different switch states to aid in isolating the problem. This part is faulty as people have had them replaced and not even 6 months later they have had to have them replaced again, as the only replacement part available is from Dodge, which shows the parts are faulty.
It was re-introduced to the market as a four-door sports sedan starting in 2008. Because it will act up a day or two then be fine for a few days making it difficult for a shop to actually see what the car is doing. I have researched this issue and there is numerous complaints online about the electronic throttle body's being faulty that Dodge is putting in 2008 - 2010 Avengers. This incident came very close to resulting in me getting rear ended. The vehicle was not repaired and the manufacturer was notified.
