2010 Dodge Avenger Sedan R/T 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Where to begin. Already had to replace 2 window regulators on the front of this car with very little use. I baby this car and it is well taken care of for a 4 1/2 year old car. Dealer ship screwed me on $450 for the passenger window regulator that failed in about 3 years of ownership. Now a year later the drivers side is out. I will try to replace it myself but, once done I will not use the windows anymore. I am and the family has own and sworn by Chrysler since the 70's. We've own 71' Barracuda, Satellite 72', A Ram charger, Dodge Daytona, Chrysler Sirius and Concord, Ram vans and Trucks and a first series dodge avenger (1996) so, I am not just some fence jumper


Favorite Features

Heated seats, Power mirrors, EVIC, Rear view mirror with the tenting to keep headlights from blinding you, Fold down seats and the Mygig sound system. Fuel mileage is ok.


Suggested Improvements

Very poor Interior design as far as trim goes and this is there high end model (R/T) Very poor, very cheap and crappy Window regulators. Engine performance changes with hot or cold weather. If it over 85 outside cars shift changes from 35 to 40 in third and overdrive goes from 40 to wont kick in till 60mph which kills your fuel mileage. When it's cold overdrive will not kick in till the car is around mid-temp on the gauge. I will probably not get a Challenger like I planned and probably switch and get a Toyota Camry. Sad to say but I have no confidence in Dodge anymore

2010 Dodge Avenger Sedan SXT 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

well, for starters, i have an '09 rio lx and an '04 explorer eddie bauer ed....compared to those vehicles, i would'nt hate...i love my avenger, its a good reliable vehicle. i understand that its transmission is out of date and the engine is low powered but for the price i got it and the reason i picked it, its great...its one of those cars where you like it for the ride and not the power, like someone said already, if you wanted something fast you wouldn't have looked a 4 banger...the vehicle is a one of a kind beast, i have had no problems with the A/C or the brake lights, i did though buy it after it came out by 2 years, all i can say is it was worth the money i spent on it.


Favorite Features

a/c, power windows, cooler, ride, comfort, looks, mileage, etc....pretty much everything


Suggested Improvements

if you get the money or the time, change the transmission to an up to dated version

Review

We bought a 2010 avenger sxt in Feb 2010. Right of the bat the A/C stop working on high. The Dealer wanted $125 just to tell me what wrong, then another $200to fix it said the part was NOT under warrenty. Then the brake light started coming on and going off. another $125 to look at and $325 to replace the parking brake switch. Now the computer is resetting its self on the climate control switch and you have to park the car pull the fuse out and put back in to reset. Just a headache from the time we bought. The transmission is very weak the motor is turning 3000-4000 rpm traveling the interstate at 70-75mph. I will never buy another Dodge Avenger!!


Favorite Features

Descent gas mileage.


Suggested Improvements

Start over and build a new car!

2010 Dodge Avenger Sedan R/T 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I've been using this rental for several weeks. Overall comfortable and quiet, but: The trunk lid, with it's spoiler, is very heavy and requires both hands free to lift it. The high lip of the trunk combined with the long rear window means that loading the trunk is limited to small things. The hood release is very poorly located and was broken by a previous user, but my left foot caught constantly on that lever on exiting the car. The A/C frequently required turning the fan to full to get it to kick in. Once working it could cool very well at 60 mph, but became an oven at traffic lights.


Favorite Features

Quiet. Not a lot of road noise.


Suggested Improvements

Transmission was often rough shifting at stops. Once my daughter thought someone had hit us.
