Excellent acceleration. I have the 3.5L V6 with a 6-speed autostick. Ride is choppy on rougher roads, but actually rides and handles better with about 100 lbs in trunk. Nice growl from twin exhaust tips when pressed a bit hard. Handles twists and curvy roads with ease. Heated and cooled cupholder is a really nice functional additional. Only real complaint is blind spots in rear corners. Fuel economy enroute to NC from MI. back in October running 55 to 60mph on flat roads was 34.2 mpg. Sustained highway speeds at 65 to 70mph was 30.9mpg. 75-79mph (with bursts to 90mph drops to 28.2mpg. I'll stop there. In the mountains, there may have been a 1/2 mpg decrease, but that's it. The above mileage was achieved with the a/c not running. I run Mobil 1 oil and had about 50K on the car at that time. Fuel economy rating is 16mpg city and 26 on highway. I used my extended range remote start religiously, and I still manage to never get less than 19.7mph in city. It is the most fun to drive vehicle I have ever owned, but I still hate the blind spots. What I did was get a 3" convex mirror on both sides and stuck them to outer edge of mirrors. Takes some getting used to, but I've driven trucks that way a lot of times, so I have gotten used to it. The Boston Acoustics sound system is truly awesome. For the second time in my life, my factory audio system needs no after-market improvements. It has a subwoofer in the back somewhere, and it's not big either, but it enhances tonal quality immensely. Great job Chrysler!

I purchased my 2010 Dodge Avenger 05/27/2010 new and have put 6,400 trouble free miles on it. 95% of my driving is highway miles and the fuel economy is great. I get 30.5mpg back and forth to work. Have taken two short trips and the mileage is 37.5mpg. The engine I have is the 2.4l 4cyl. with automatic. The car is a nice size and fun to drive. I feel they should advertise this car instead of keeping it behind the senes.
