Avenger Fan After Years of Driving Fords!

The new '11 Dodge Avenger was the perfect replacement for my 2007 Ford Fusion SEL. The Fusion was nice but too common and a bit slow and dated. I wanted something with a bit more flare, refinement and aggressive in the looks and horsepower departments. The restyled Avenger fit the bill. The quality is superb, as are its fit, finish and high grade materials, like the new heated leather seats, navigation system, suspension and gages. The award winning Pentastar V6 engine was one of the main reasons I opted for the '11 Avenger. Wards trade magazine raves about this engine and so do I. My new Avenger Lux is roomy, trouble free, great on gas and handles like a sports sedan. The cost of ownership is a great bonus and the low MRSP allowed me to pay cash. Everything is in perfect working order and I like the fact that the car looks like a smaller version of the very attractive Dodge Charger!


WOW: Great Midsize Sedan

I am one happy owner. After looking at a variety of midsize cars, buying a 2011 Avenger LUX was the perfect choice. It is a car easy to overlook with a showroom full of Dodge Vipers, all new Chargers, a hot '11 Durango & the Hemi V8 Challengers on display. After sitting in those and dreaming, I walked over and sat in the Avenger. It seemed perfect! The size of the Avenger is just right and it rides and handles like a charm. It has more than enough driver, passenger and trunk space. Quality is pristine. The car is easy to manuever in and out of traffic. It is a breeze to park. The comfortable ride is equalled by the best handling of all previous cars owned and looked at -- some costing nearly double. The features on the LUX model are too plentiful to mention. It does great in the snow and is very affordable. Gas mileage is in the mid 30's when on the express way. Remarkable for its size and all new powerful V6 engine. The best V6, in my opinion.


2011: The Year of Dodge

The '11 Avenger is a great package, with rock solid ormance, quality, performance, highest grade materials and perfect blend of ride and hadling and utmost comfort for five. The Avener is roomy, practical and full of surprises, like heated seats, large navigation screen, heated exterior mirrors leather trim with leather seat models, excellent gas mileage and bold and beautiful interior and exterior. The radio-stereo speakers, CD/DVD make for the greatest stereo system and entertainment package in the midsize field. A winner!

Best Kept Secret!

So tired of cookie cutter designs. The 2011 Dodge Avenger is uniquely styled & greatly improved in every regard over the '10 model we test drove. It is very roomy. Has loads of std. equipment and is fun to drive. The Pentastar V6 is fast, fuel efficient & quiet. The car has a lot of room and the interior materials are class leaders for '11. The exterior has perfect fit & finish, as does the cabin. The truck is well finished & can swallow a lot of luggage & a couple of golf bags to boot. Dodge has done its homework. The remote start, newly added for '11 is awesome & surprising for a mid-sized compact at this highly reasonable price. The car has every bell & whistle, including the finest grade leather in its class and a large sunroof. It features an easy to use navigation system (with large screen) and stellar stereo/entertainment system. The dealer gave us more than we had expected for our Ford Fusion trade. We enjoyed the Fusion, but after owning a reliable, trouble-free Dodge Grand Caravan (as our primary vehicle) and loving that, we decided to buy another Chrysler product. Plus, the Avenger has an attractive, bold look lacking on more mainstream sedans. The Avenger is solid, has a nice ride & is a refreshing change from more mundane midsize vehicles. It handles like a sports car and is more comfortable than our previous Ford. Gas mileage is about 32 mpg with mixed driving. The only thing I wish for is a return to the Avenger's AWD system as an option; however, the FWD is sufficient in Buffalo during wintertime.
