Had Check Engine Light come on, turned out cylinder 6 was defective and had to be replaced. Luckily, Fiat-Chrysler put an extended warranty on it 10yr/150k and got replaced for free. But what about the other 5 cylinders? Google this phrase "Chrysler replacing cylinder heads on select Pentastar V6 powered models"
Water goes into the trunk lid, then into trunk via spoiler.
Heater core got clogged, so, very poor heat in the cabin during winter times. This is not under any warranty, up to $1200 to fix.
Had to have Heater Actuator replaced multiple times.
Average bang for the buck

Pros - Good handling, agile and nimble, nice dashboard set-up, satellite radio, audio display is touch screen and a plus, good gas economy, nice sporty body style.
Cons - SXT (mid model) should have automatic lights, acceleration can be a bit sluggish. Back seat leg room is a bit cramped. Overall, a good midsized car for the price.

Decent on gas. It's sexy and has lots of acceleration. Has a smooth ride.
The Dodge Avenger made a big splash when it jumped into the large pool of mid-sized American sedans more than 20 years ago. Its classic styling, high-tech features, and affordable price made the Avenger an outstanding contender in the front-wheel-drive market. Right until its last model year (2014), sophisticated facelifts and revisions made sure the Avenger has held onto its position as a popular choice from Dodge for daily drivers and performance enthusiasts alike.
