Used 2010 Dodge Avenger SXT in Dulles, VA
Reviews for 2010 Dodge Avenger
Easy sleek, simple car. Great on gas and roomy.
Nicer Than I Expected
The Avenger wasn't my first choice, but after a test drive it should have been my only choice. I went from a 2002 two-door Saturn coupe I owned for 10 years: manual locks & windows, 4 cylinder engine with 100hp to power windows, keyless entry (very handy, by the way), a 4 cylinder with 178hp and a pretty impressive sound system. The car looks formidable; it's sportier cousin the Charger taught it a few things about looking powerful. While the Avenger looks like a 'guy car' anyone can drive it without feeling intimidated, thanks to the 4 cylinder 2.4L engine (other trims offer a V6, but this reviewer knows only the 4-banger). It has enough power to pass slower vehicles on the freeway and get up steep hills with ease, but not so much that someone would freak out if they gunned it & suddenly lurched forward uncontrollably. I admit that looks can be deceiving with the Avenger; one would expect a beefier engine with a throatier growl as you stomp on the accelerator, but that's not necessarily a bad thing in this case. The price at the pump is a shocker, however: a full tank runs an average of $50-$60, but on 90% highway miles I can reach about 500-530 miles before stopping to fill up. The brakes can sometimes be touchy, but the stopping power is reassuring when you need it. Handling is decent; the power steering is quite smooth and the turning radius will get you around tight u-turns fairly easily. Inside, the cabin is fairly spacious; plenty of legroom to stretch out & move around, lots of places to store things. The trunk is HUGE, and if you run out of space the backseats fold down for additional room. There's even a spot in the dash to store a couple cans of...whatever you want...close the hatch, and keep the drinks COLD with the air system. Pretty nice little feature... This particular Avenger has the SXT trim,which is the base package: no steering wheel-mounted cruise or radio controls, Dodge's U-Connect system unavailable (yet the buttons are there...go figure), and the driver-side window has auto-down, but not auto-up. Minor things, granted. The car still has cruise control, AM/FM CD with aux jack and built-in SiriusXM receiver. The odometer readout cycles through two trip mileages, overall mileage, and outside temperature display. So far, the car runs and feels good. It's big enough that you'll feel safe in it, but small enough that you won't feel like you're parking a tank. I'm very pleased with the Avenger, and would highly recommend it for someone that wants an 'in the middle' type of vehicle.
I really love my car. I like the color of it black. I been the dodge family for a long time. I had 05 dodge stratus, but I really love this avenger over the dodge.
