This car has pretty decent gas mileage (about 23 - 25 MPG), which is only a little less I was getting with my previous vehicle (2004 Dodge Neon, 212,000 miles). Difference is that when I step on the gas something actually happens. The better pickup took a little getting used to, but is great in Interstate traffic when you need it.
I am used to driving a VW Beetle for the past 13 years and had to buy something in a hurry when it suddenly died on me on the highway, so I thought this car would take a lot of getting used to, but it rides so smooth and isn't really as large as I first thought it would feel...I tend to pull too close to curbs, so I love how the front end sits JUST high enough to miss them and not scrape...AC/Heat work great and the defogger is amazing...drives well on ice and snow, too...highway gas mileage has been amazing, I can go 400 miles on 1 tank of gas, which is nice...lots of trunk storage, however if it is raining or has been raining, water runs into the trunk upon opening it...not sure if mine is defective or this is standard
2010 Dodge AvengerNick Ruiz - Tampa, FL06/29/2015
This car isn't really reliable. I am at 83k miles, and I'm running into all sorts of issues. Broken shifter cable, alternator problems, air conditioner has a musty smell, and now the tranny/engine are having some serious issues. I really don't care about anything in a car except reliability so I would NOT recommend this vehicle.
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.
