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.
Terrible! Horrible! Problematic!
2012 Dodge AvengerHerr Mal - Austin, TX01/10/2017
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.

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.
Two sedans, both from Dodge, have the potential to take the streets by storm as sharp-looking, high performing, four-door sedans. Although the swaggering Dodge Charger is an obvious choice for the performance-minded driver, the Dodge Avenger also has the potential to be a solid contender. Even though Dodge originally never intended for these sedans to compete, advancements in vehicle design have placed the Charger and Avenger on the same field of play. And they certainly can play.
