Got the 2013. The car rides well. Corners and road feel are excellent. The CS guys says its unrefined, well on testing for 25 mins. Show how much there worth. Had the car with the V6 engine. Outstanding performance for the buck. Also based on the insurance and trade in value of old car. Dodge offers a llot. Its one of the best cars on the road.

Great Deal

This is a great choice for a sports car if you don't want to spend a lot of money. The mileage is great and it seats me great for my 6'0 frame. The dealership I purchased the vehicle had great service...
This is a great choice for a sports car if you don't want to spend a lot of money. The mileage is great and it seats me great for my 6'0 frame. The dealership I purchased the vehicle had great service and the salesman Mr. Baker gave me a great deal.

Taking it down to reliable town.

by from Nashua,NH on March 4, 2015

After driving old clunkers and boat'ish sedans, this car is a great first step for first time buyers. It is affordable, reliable,classy, and extremely smooth. Would be a great first ride for graduates...

Purchased my Avenger 4 months ago and have 5,000 miles. I researched the car a lot on line before and after the purchase and the negative comments that the, "car experts" write about this car just are not true. The interior is the best in class with great head room and finishing touches that make you feel like you are in a high dollar vehicle. I find that the front and back driver and passenger room is mush better than the sonata and competitive with the camry. The trunk space fits my golf clubs and enough luggage for a family of three to be away for a full week. The car corners like it is on rails to coin a phrase and is very quit to drive. The options that are available at purchase are second to none. Give this car a try you will love the styling inside and out.

Bye Bye Accord, Hello Avenger!

I was passing by a dodge dealer, and somethign caught my eye. so i decided to pull in and look around. I found what drew my attention. The 2012 Dodge Avenger R/T. I at the time had a 2010 Honda Accord EX-L, which to be honest is a pretty boring car, but its good on gas. I never heard of the Avenger before, I started talking to the dealer associate and got inside the car and took it for a drive. I noticed that the tachometer is front and center, not the speedometer, and I kinda liked that. It made it feel more of a sportier car. The suspension is well tuned, and the 3.6 pentastar purrs like a cheetah, and the car drives like a cheetah runs, quick and agile. I also like the off center stripe going from the front seat to the rear, it adds attitude. The seats are really comfortable, it gets pretty good gas for a V6 (19/29: so far my MPG AVG is 28MPG. I was drawn in, I had to buy the car. I was pleasantly surprised when I got out and checked the sticker price. $28,000 and change. My accord was well in its 30K mark. The interior is nice, made of good quality soft touch material. Chrysler Jeep and Dodge have a great set up when buying a car, it was nice and easy. I remember buying my accord it was such a pain! I eventually sold my accord, after the Avenger came home and I don't miss it at all. The Avenger has less road noise, and a smoother ride. Not to mention, it doesn't make me ( a 29 year old man) look like a wimp, like the accord did. I love my Avenger, and so does everyone else that has been in mine. My wife is pretty jealous. We're buying a new car for her soon (she now has a Toyota Camry) and we're looking at The Dodge Journey R/T for her, or maybe the luxury one, (shes pregnant with our first kid). One things for sure, its going to be a Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep family from here on out!

I shopped around and looked at the Challenger but it looked like I was going through mid-life crisis. I test drove the Journey, loved it but did not want an SUV so I test drove the Avenger. It drives like a dream, It gets excellent gas mileage and came with plenty of options for the price. I have heated seats, heated mirrors, automatic dimming mirror, touch screen radio with blu-tooth, all the controls on the steering wheel and remote starter. I had a base model car before this one and I paid more with nothing in it, this is a bargain, Love the look of it and handles well. HIghly recommend this car to anyone,
