I bought this car in Feb 2013, the SXT model with every option under the sun. This car drives great as i have put 23,000 on it already. The color is my seconf fav thing and i get more and more stares(redline red). I just wish the R/T version was out when i bought this because i would have bought that one. I will just wait till next year and have two in my driveway!!! thanks Dodge for making a great car finally!

Decent "commuter" car. But bad MPG.

I bought this car in November of 2013 brand new and now in February of 2015 it has just under 60,000 miles on it. Other than putting new tires on (the goodyear Eagle LS2s it came with were awful in rain) and new brake pads I haven't had to do anything to the car. But, being the kind of driver I am I like horsepower and torque even though I bought the 4-cylinder model, I installed a performance chip and forced air intake along with catback exhaust and did a few tunes because the car seems to weigh too much for the small engine to really get up and go the way I'm used to. I owned a 2012 Chevy Camaro 2SS before, but traded up for better fuel economy....I did not get it. The fuel economy of the little 2.4L I-4 suffers due to the car being so heavy. I get on average 15-17mpg. The car also idles at 2100RPM which is odd...considering the 6.2L V8 I had before idled around 1200RPM max...and my fiance's 1.6L EcoBoost idles at around 800rpm so it just seems high. If you are thinking of buying this car get the V6. The I-4 gets bad mileage and is sluggish due to the weight ratio. BUT...it is VERY reliable. Never had a single hiccup in over a year and I drive over 50,000 miles per year.

I purchased a 2013 SXT new in July, since then I put 7500 miles on it, and am very pleased so far, With the I-4 gas mileage is respectable and acceleration & performance is better than I expected. Really don't have any complaints considering the price of the vehicle. The fit and finish are very good.Sporty good looks, nice wheels & tires {I have the optional 18 inch aluminum wheels w/ Goodyear eagles}, The car is a pleasure to drive.

I received excellent treatment at the dealership. I entered without a specific vehicle I wanted. The salesman asked me for my "requirements". He said he'd like to show me a vehicle that would interest me. He brought out the Avenger. The rest was history. I loved the car and when we discussed price I was astounded. Compare the Avenger to the Chrysler 300 or 200. What a difference. Also, the finance manager was very cooperative and honest.

I got the 2013 SE in July of 2013, so far Ive put 26,500 miles on it. For me, coming from a truck its a little small, but as far as driving to and from work its pretty good. The ride is pretty smooth, my friends and family say they fit comfortable when going out. I got the V6, which I would recommend, its pretty quick when coming from a stop and also when passing on the highway. Mileage isnt too bad, so far Im getting 28/hwy. The only complaint I have is with the cheap hub caps. Everytime Im driving with my windows down, you can hear them rattle when hitting any bump in the road. Would recommend getting a nicer rim, which Im going to get a set in a few months. But Im happy with getting this car, its been very reliable.

I'm just passing a year with my 2010 SXT 4 banger and I took it down south right after I bought it. I couldn't be happier with it's performance and since I travel long didtance only every other year now, I figured the 4 would be enough. Hope to have it for a few years.

WAOH is what I said first time I test drove this car at Thirfty Car Sales Springfield , MA so smooth acceleration and pick up on demand the car practically rolls effortless. The Pentastar V6 3.6 does a great job getting me where I want to go and fast if need be. I get around 18-19 mpg city and yes I have gotten 30 mpg highway cruising at 75. Very stable car limited body roll I had to make a sudden maneuver on the highway going 70 o so and it responded flawlessly. Dodge has stepped up their game big time with this car led tail lamps great night headlamp light visibility a very comfortable accessible interior. I had a total of 4 adults in the Avenger and like 200lbs of luggage and the car was just as responsive and powerful. I am very happy with my purchase I highly recommend it. For the money the quality of a vehicle is a no brainer

I originslly was looking for a charger, but knowing I wanted navigation and all of the extras, the charger fell out of my budget of 28k for a car. I then looked at the Avenger. I knew I did not want a 4 banger. I wanted a v6 so I looked at the performance of the v6 Avenger. I was impressed with its 0-60 time and the packages. I wanted to get a sxt with a v6 with nav or the r/t. I ended up getting the sxt. The v6 is awesome and is highly recommended if you are looking for more kick then a 4 banger. There is some torgue steer when accelerating hard, but if you are accelerating hard, you should be grabbing the wheel anyways so this is a minimal issue at best. I am getting 21.5 mpg and that is 95% city and in stop and go commutes. I have the 6.5 inch touch screen navigation which is great and has sirius radio and travel link to give you fuel prices and the distance to the staiton, places to eat, shop, and sleep. This car is solid and I installed a 12 inch subwoofer for extra kick and because it has a high mperage alternator there are no issues. This car gets a bad rep for being a Chrysler product but it is one of the best cars I have purchased.
