This is my second dodge first one the thermostat housing cracked and had to be replaced as well as water pump till finally died, I now have an avenger certified pre owned and less than 80,000 miles and regularly maintenance and same issues with this one. Two dodges same problems all coming to the amount of 900 plus in price.
I have just purchased a new 2011 avenger lux edition with the 3.6L V6 this car is great have only had a few days but all you have to do is sit in this car. and your sold the comfort is amazing, My car came with the all black leather interior, loaded. then when you drive this car the interior is so quiet its hard to believe. The new V6 that I have been hearing about and now driven myself. has awesome hp and torque, put together with the 6 speed auto-stick transmission. this is the perfect combination. Chrysler did an amazing job on this car. will write another review after I put some miles on the car.
The fun to drive factor, Hp, Torque, spot on shifts, comfort. great roominess, in front as well as rear seat leg room, huge trunk. Dual exhaust, ring of fire L.E.D. taillights
more updated headlights with projection lamps and HID bulbs and possible L.E.D. daytime running light strip to go along with the super bright L.E.D. taillights.
Mulled over whether or not to buy for over six months!! Could not decide what car to buy, was looking at Kias, Fords, Hyundais and Chevy's. After doing market research and driving each one about 5 times (poor salesmen), I finally decided that the Avenger was the funnest! Not to mention, the MYGIG system is awesome! I was a little unsure about my purchase after I made it, but every day after I bought it, I fall in love more and more! This car has all the power I need, and if I drive it nice, this awesome V6 still gets 25mpg in town! I am so happy I took my time to make a decision, this is a perfect car for me!
The Pentastar is by far the best feature on this car - love the power!
Just wish the cushions hugged you a little tighter while driving, they seem slightly limp
I am in my 50s and have driven all types of cars. I have owned numerous Chrysler performnace cars. I wanted something sharp looking and fun to drive. I can't stop driving this car, I love it. The handling and performance are great. The auto climate control works super. The sound system makes it a pleasure on long trips. I could honestly say this is the best car I have owned for its money.
The perforance was a surprise. It's like driving a sports car without the cost. The 3.6 engine is great!!
I looked at the Ford Fusion, Nissan Altima and the Honda Accord.
If you want to stand out and have a car that is fun to drive. Buy the Dodge Avenger. I love this car!
It looks so good compared to the above mentioned competitors. It is so fast with the 283 HP engine. Highway MPG is respectable and City is good too. The features this LUX version has are incredible. The UConnect system compares will with the Ford Sync system. It even does some things Sync cannot. The build in 30 GB HDD is so great.
I have never written a review on-line before but I had to tell people to look at this car. It is my pride and joy!
It is a little muscle car!
30 GB HDD
283 HP V6 Engine is awesome
