I purchased my Avenger this summer after driving SUVs for the past 8 years, and I couldn't be happier for the price I paid. I wasn't looking for anything too fancy, just something that would get me around with better MPG than my previous SUV. My wife drives a Stratus, so I knew what to expect from Dodge. I've taken it on long trips and commute about 30 total miles each day.....haven't had any problems so far (knock on wood). Still getting compliments on the looks, especially when it's washed and shiny.
17 inch tires, sunroof, smooth look, radio controls on steering wheel, MPG
plastic interior isn't as bad as some say (especially for the price of the vehicle), but it could be a little better
