2011 Avenger Mainstreet
Fit and finish of the cabin has is excellent. Cheap plastic and gaudy trim has been replaced with lots of soft touch surfaces and materials of good quality. The cabin has zero squeaks or rattles and the base car stereo sounds surprisingly good.
Ride quality is on the soft side with a and the Michelin Primacy MXV4 all-season tires grip really well.
Rental car stigma associated with the Avenger. Even the cabin smells like a rental car.
So-so fuel economy from a 4-cylinder engine that underperforms. Driven softly the Avenger can get 25 mpg overall with mostly highway driving and slow/steady accelerations. Unfortunately, the anemic powered 2.4L 4-cylinder engine needs a lot flogging to get up to speed. Engagement with the 6-speed automatic transmission isn't 100% smooth, either.
Trunk space is on the smallish side. The fender wells intrude upon the limited trunk space and the opening after folding the rear seats isn't very wide.
The 2011 Avenger is okay as a daily driver with its quiet and comfortable interior. Spending time inside the Avenger isn't so bad with its sound system and cushy cloth seats. Just don't have any expectations of driving a sporty car unless you choose the optional V6 engine.
