"I love my avenger! I bought it used with 65,000 miles and it works great! There can be a hard gear shift around 25 mph, but if you start it off slow it doesn't happen. Just helps me remember to not have a lead foot! The leather seats and style inside and out is sleek, classy, and timeless. It looks mean and can hold its own! Definite win for dodge."
Pros: "great gas milage, strong engine, great design"
Cons: "poor resale value, no longer manufactured"

"I have owned this 2013 Dodge Avenger SE V6 for the past 1 1/2 years and absolutely love it and it is really a shame that the car has a bad rap. The V6 engine in the Avenger is a very strong engine and fits nicely in this car with it's peppiness and durability. It really is not fair that the resale value is so low. I cannot say anything that is bad really of this car other then the bad rap for the resale value"
"No major problems with this car. I do like it alot. At 124000 miles it still handles good and drives as good as any car at this mileage should if not better. Have done minor maintenance but nothing unexpected."
"Have to prevent the trunk from opening all of the way to prevent water (rain, snow) from flowing in. Seats are not comfortable to sit in but the heated seats are nice. Wears down tires fast. Approximately 40,000 miles put on Michelin Defender tires (90,000 mile warranty), tread is already low."
"The car was a step up, or so I thought. It's tiny on the inside. Like, TINY. My pal's Fiat is roomier.
Weird tire size that makes replacing tires a pain in the butt, not to mention expensive.
Gas mileage? Awful.
Randomly won't start. Then, it will fire off like everything is okay.
The battery is next to impossible to get to. You have to take the drivers side tire off, take the wheel well off and then commence to unbolting.
The body is super flimsy. I hit a raccoon and busted my entire grill. Really ridiculous.
What sucked me in was the lifetime powertrain warranty. Now I want to kick myself. I should have stuck with my optima. Now I'm stuck in this thing for years."
