Used Car: 2013 Dodge Avenger Review
The 2013 Dodge Avenger has poor fuel economy and a low reliability score, and reviewers were let down by its cramped back seats.
A four-cylinder engine is standard in the 2013 Dodge Avenger and a V6 was optional when it was new. A four-speed automatic transmission is standard with the base engine, while a six-speed automatic is available with the base Avenger and standard on V6 models. Auto writers said the base Avenger has some trouble getting up to speed and preferred models with the available V6. With the base engine and four-speed transmission, the 2013 Dodge Avenger gets 21/29 mpg city/highway, which is poor for the class. Critics were pleased with the Avenger’s controlled handling and said it has a comfortable ride.
Most auto writers described the 2013 Dodge Avenger’s cabin as cramped, noting that there’s less back-seat passenger space than you’ll find in most 2013 midsize cars. The standard features list for the Avenger, which includes things like an auxiliary jack and CD player, is shorter than what most cars in the 2013 midsize class offer. Optional features in the Avenger when it was new include a Uconnect infotainment system, heated seats, navigation, Bluetooth and a USB port.
Other Cars to Consider
According to most auto writers, the 2013 Ford Fusion offers athletic handling and comfortable seats in both rows. The Fusion also gets better fuel economy and has more standard features.
The 2013 Nissan Altima gets good fuel economy, and critics liked its nimble handling and the power from its base engine. Reviewers also said that the Altima has a spacious cabin that’s built with attractive, high-quality materials.
