I wouldn't think that it is normal for any car to do this, but I think you are best to contact a local Dodge dealer, as the vehicle should still be in warranty being so new. Even if for some reason it is not in warranty, they may be able to tell you whether or not it needs repairs.

I was driving my grandmas 08 avenger and doing about 50 and the brakes failed so I pulled the e brake and stopped then when I drove around the block to check it all the brakes failed I need to know y.


Sounds like you have blown either a brake line or could be the master cylinder. Get it checked ASAP You have lost all the brake fluid. Don't drive the car this way or you could kill yourself.

My 2008 Dodge Avenger is stalling at stoplights, no check engine light.


if this is happening when you have your foot on the brake at the lights but not if your foot is not on the brake at the lights or other stop places , it is most probably the brake booster is failed allowing extra air into the manifold and making the engine run too lean, causing it to stop

Why wont my 2008 dodge avenger shift from park?


I assume you are pressing firmly on the brake pedal. If so, it is most likely the brake safety switch, not detecting that you are.
Contact your dealer about the override for this, (usually there is a button somewhere), if that fixes it, you need to get it replaced.
All new cars require that you press the brake to be able to shift out of park; this prevents the so-called "sudden acceleration" problem, when you put your foot on the accelerator instead of the brake, shift into drive, and then no matter how hard you press on the accelerator (which you *think* is the brake), the car will not stop, in fact it "races out of control".

But occasionally this switch goes bad and has to be replaced.

My brakes goes down when you have foot on them.


you either have a hydraulic fluid leak in a caliper etc or the booster is leaking vacume. a change in egine load or rpm while stopped will also lower brake pedal due to he increase in engine vacume. check to see if fluid resevoir for brakes is low. either way, if your not sure or comfortable get to a pro to diagnose, we can only tell you so much. when it comes to brakes dont take chances make them right

Dodge avenger 2008


It depends on who you go to and if you want it done right. I went to the Dealership and had them put front brakes on my 2008 Dodge Avenger and it has been in the shop every 2-4 months since then for front brakes. They replaced the entire front brake system and my 08 Avenger is still eating brakes. I finally took it to a friend who owns a auto repair shop he replace the rotors which are total about 115.00 for each from AutoZone and replaced the brake pads for 50.00 so it cost me just parts 155.00 and my Avenger is running smoothly since haven't had problems with the brakes since. Go to Midas and let them change it for roughly 89.00 avoid the dealership at all cost they can run 200.00-500.00 depending on if it is just the brakes pads or if it is the rotors and pads.
