I bought my 2013 Avenger new May,2013.....this is my 3rd Avenger and will be my last one.....I had to take my car into the dealership service dept more than 5 times to get the front end fix where the car will stop pulling to the right and the rear brakes has been changed out since Sept,2913 and the rear brakes are making a very loud noise when you back up.....is anybody else having the same issue.....the dealership advised me that all 2013 Avengers and Chrysler 200 are having issues with the rear brakes and Dodge is refusing to replace them and correct the problem. I called serveral times to Dodge and it is true....they refusing to correct this problem and has a careless attitude,,,,,,,,please let me know if anybody else is having this issue akso......if you are not having this issue.....you will and good luck

A+ Comfort and Satisfactory MPG

This is the first sedan that I truely feel safe and comfortable in. It is more than roomy, the interior is very sleek, and I'm proud to have people get in my car. For a 4 cylinder it has guts. The only complaint I have us that the front passenger door is rough to close, it has to be closed very hard to latch. And I've noticed recently after driving almost 10,000 miles it sometimes changes gears rough, and it can be very jerky when it does this. I am thinking of taking it in for this reason. I would recommend driving one. I'm very happy with it.s

I bought my black 2.6l V-6 Avenger a few weeks ago after trading in my pontiac G-6, a car that I hated! And I haven't stopped smiling yet. The car drives amazing, the handling is crisp and precise. The power from the engine is surprising and fun. I haven't had any problems passing anybody yet. Its a joy to drive and the body style looks sleek yet aggressive

Owned a couple Stratus' with the 2.4 so I knew what I wanted. When Dodge announced the end of the Avenger, I knew I had to buy one. Test drove a Fusion for 800 miles and was not impressed. I like the Dodge styling and reliability. Gas mileage could be better, but I can buy a lot of gas with the cost savings compared to other's in its class. The blue tooth feature is nice for the wife. Rear windows go all the way down. Dash board controls are convenient and easy to use. Interior is roomy and seats are comfortable.

I bought my 2013 avenger brand new almost 2 years ago. Until now I haven't had any major problems, just a tough adjustment from a speedy mazda to a slow to get going dodge. Anyways, this morning my check engine light came on, so I called the mechanic and told him the codes that came up (malfunction of cylinder 3 and something about coils?) but he said I was okay to drive...... He was wrong 45 minutes later I was on the highway when my car died. I don't know the specifics yet of what's wrong, but a 2 year old car shouldn't be dead.

Bought 2013 at end of 2012 really good commuter car average 33 mpg with regular maintenance has been great car. 4 cylinder with power, comfort and economy. Decent room, interior could be more durable fabric. Overall performance is great. Had automatic transmission serviced mechanic stated there was really nothing else that needed to be done on these cars they are fairly maintenance free with regular oil changes. Would recommend this car.

Great car for a little money

by from Madison, WI on October 5, 2013

This was not the car I was initially looking for, however, after a drive and seeing how low the price was, I bought it. Definitely get the 6 cylinder engine, powerful and still energy efficient!

I do have to admit that for a small to mid-size car it so far has had a smooth ride. I bought a brand new SE V6. Most of the new vehicles I test drove were like being on a skate board. Not too much road noise when going down the highway. Seems to have some puch in the accelerator. Disappointed in the interior space. I have to put the front seats all the way forward to accomodate a childs feet in a car seat or booster in the back. The back seat looked big but most definately isn't! Very disappointed in the trunk as it appears big but is not. Most large items don't go in the opening and because the whole trunk is flat on one leval everything slides and moves around when driving. When the kids move in their seats in back the whole car 'moves'. Sort of annoying. No cubby or storage space for anything!!! And that is an understatement. My biggest complaint there is that I can't put a trash bag in it because there is no place to put it. The center console is so small you can't hardly put anything in it. My absolute biggest complaint is POOR FUEL MILEAGE. Had the car 3 weeks and on the first tank with mostly highway miles I got 19 mpg. With only in town driving on second tank I got 11 mpg! Getting ready to take on 3000 mile trip, better see some huge improvement! Will repost my results. Currently would suggest this is a car for a single person that doesn't require much room and who does higway driving as opposed to in town only.
