We bought the Avenger when we turned in our lease on a Dodge Caravan. My wife loves the Avenger. She is getting 24 miles per gallon (true city driving). You feel like you are sitting up high. You do sacrifice that performance feel at the start, but the city mileage out weighs the strong "pedal" feel. Nice size car for our family of five. Handling and acceleration is "soft" compared to my Mazda 6. So far we are very satisfied with the Avenger!
City mileage. Sporty design. Very nice ride.
Ability with standard features to disable headlights from turning on when unlocking the doors remotely. Brakes have a soft feel. You need to get use to the blind spots.
