Replaced my Kia with this car, and this one I really like. I bought it used at 54k miles, and have put about 20k miles on it. While it works great, I have had two problems with it, the first was a small leak in a transmission seal. No big deal, Dodge's power train warranty replaced it for free. Then about 6 months later, today actually, I smelled antifreeze in the vents, and shortly after the engine started getting hot (pulled over before it started to steam, was at 3/4 on the gauge before I killed the engine), the radiator hose valve connector snapped and sprayed antifreeze everywhere. Apparently this is a common issue. Besides the headache of having it towed and fixed, it's still one of my favorite cars I've owned. I feel safe driving this around. The power this thing has is amazing, it powers through everything without a problem.

Love It!!!

by from Madison, WI on December 15, 2012

Is is by far the best car I have ever owned!!! It's feels like I'm driving a mini muscle car! There isn't anything that I could think of that I don't care for.

this has been a great car. it cruses like my Cadillac did and is even smoother of a ride. it has great power and good fuel economy. the seats are comfortable and the back seat has lots of room. the trunk in this is huge which is a plus and the back seats fold down so even better for hauling. over all this car gets two thumbs up and i would defiantly recommend this car.

I bought this one year after I bought my wife a Chrysler 200S. It looks great. I bought an SE with Chrome Clad wheels and it looks awesome. It is not a Camry or Accord, it is a guys car. If your a soccer mom or dad, its not for you. If you want something sporty, get this car. It is sporty and fun to drive.

Impressive looking vehicle

I purchased a 2013 RT used with 1,100 miles on it...Deal of a lifetime. Anyway, I am middle aged and wanted to purchase something with a bit of muscle but not a V8. This car was perfect for that means, It is very good looking with black paint and 18 inch rims, amazing how much the R/T series dresses up an average looking Avenger base. It rides very smoothly on the interstate with plenty of power for passing. It is a little jumpy in the city but not a big problem. Plenty of room for 4 adults and 4 golf bags fit in the trunk just fine. The Uconnect Navigation and stereo is top notch and easy to navigate. Great car Dodge!

I bought this car a few weeks ago. It looks awesome with chrome-clad wheels. I love the car. It is quiet, drives nice, is an IHSS top safety pick, and a great price. It has some ques from the Charger, which I like. Great car and good MPG. Well worth the money.

Just purchased a 2013 R/T new. Let me tell you something... this is a great car, especially for the price. The 3.6 liter delivers tremendous performance while providing excellent fuel economy. I took a 240 mile round trip the day after I bought the car and averaged 31.6 highway MPG. The ride is smooth and the cabin is unbelievably quiet even at highway speeds. The interior/exterior styling is excellent, with the hood to fender stripes, r/t badges, the spoiler, the red accent stitching and touch screen entertainment system. The trunk is bigger and rear leg room is better than advertised by the negative ratings. Throw in a free year of satellite radio and youve got a vehicle that in my opinion outperforms the fusion, camry and altima.

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

Looked at several mid size cars all looked the same (sneaker on wheels look) the Avenger stood out nice looks , comfortable and an unbeatable price. The Avenger SE with V6 motor is quicker then most 70s muscle cars and beats anything in its class and price. Don't listen to the magazine reviews drive it for yourself. Steering mounted Audio controls are the best I have ever used, no fumbling to find. Gas mileage is a respectable 30 on the highway better then the sticker. Affordable, comfortable, power to spare and mileage. Perfect combination Dodge nailed it.

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
