I've had the Avenger now for about 8 months and it's really nice. All the negative things that Edmunds says aren't entirely true. It's pretty powerful for a 4 cylinder and being so heavy, we're not drag racing it, it accelerates and merges onto the highway just fine. I haven't had any problems with it not starting or cutting out, actually I've had no mechanical problems at all with it. All around, it's a solid midsize car. Great on gas, (just took it 1400 miles on highway, 32mpg average) looks good, has plenty of room and feels right at home on the highway. It is heavy, so you cant take a 90 degree turn at 40, thats just unsafe anyways. If you're commuter with a family, it's a great car!
Interior room, comfort, and exterior looks, as well as gas mileage.
