Reviews for Dodge Avenger

Overall Rating

4.3 out of 5 (51 reviews)

sporty, comfortable and great car for the price!

The Avenger I purchased has an upgraded V6 engine and offers lots of power and speed when desired. I've just traveled in the car for the first time and it was very good on gas. Three kids in the back seat did not complain about being uncomfortable. The body style offers a more sporty look than many sedans I've researched and gives me the desire to maybe even purchase a dodge challenger in the future. I'm not a fan of the black interior only because it shows every single little scratch and marking.


  • Power: 3.6 V6 has great power and torque.
  • Cargo Space: Lots of space in the trunk!
  • Value: Can't beat the price! The Avenger offers a lot for the $$$


  • Weather Versatility: Make sure you have good winter tires and/or tire chains

- Ray Maynes, 2013 Dodge Avenger

love my car and the price was great

Because after shopping at several car lots and looked at several make and models of cars. I drove them compared them and priced compared them and even read the write ups on them. When I went to CarMax they were not pushy they showed me three different make and models and it was very evident I liked the Dodge. After taking it home I had my mechanic go over it top to bottom and he gave it a thumbs up and I have loved it ever since. Thank you Terry


  • Ride and Handling: very smooth
  • Seat Comfort: heated seats, adjust very comfortable

- Terry Perin, 2012 Dodge Avenger

Terrific Car and wonderful salesman

This was purchased as a car for my 17 year old. He helped choose it, and it has been a totally reliable car for him. I wanted him to have a car that I wouldn't have to worry about breaking down. We also purchased the extended warranty, just to be safe, but haven't needed it! Loved the sales experience, no pressure, no haggling, easy financing! Will definitely purchase from CarMax again!


  • Styling: Looks like a sporty car
  • Interior Space: Very spacious interior, even in the back seat.
  • Seat Comfort: Seats are very soft and comfy.
