Purchased As New
I have had my avenger sxt v6 for a week and I love it. I got the v6 with the navigation and 6.5 inch touchscreen. The acceleration for the v6 is great. I have been driving 4 bangers for the past 7 years and wanted to get a v6. The ride on this car is great, suspension take bumps in the road good, and there is no rattling in any part of the car when going over rough roads. The navigation system is nice, this is my first navigation system so I can't compare from any competitors. But it is functionable for me, and comes with a 20 gb hard drive to store songs, it also doubles as a dvd player so you can play a movie. As for the blind spots I have heard many people refer to, I specifically looked for them during the test drive, but I found them about the same as any car, if you know how to drive using the mirrors to minimize any blind spots. I was able to manuever between traffic lanes on the highway doing 70 mph on a 6 lane freeway with no problems. The trick is you have to position the side view mirrors in the position to minimize the blind spot, so by the time the car gets to the blind spot, you will be able to see some part of the car in another mirror or window. I can personally say that the blind spot issue was a non issue for me. The only problem I have with this car is that many of the car reviews have negative things on this car because it is a Chrysler product, and compare the avenger to a high end sedan. I traded in a 2011 Ford Fusion for this car and I can say this car is better, handles better, and feels better to drive. I do experience some torque steer when accelerating hard, but with front wheel drive and 283 hp, that should be expected. The back seats do feel a little bit cramped, but driver and passenger leg and head room is great, and I am 6'1" and 275. I did not test drive the 2.4 version, because I knew I wanted a v6, but I have heard it can be slow. I would suggest those of you who are looking at this car, test drive the v6 and you will not be disappointed, I am getting 20 mpg city, and 30 on hwy, compared to 23/33 with my trade in. I will take 3 mpg loss to gain 115 hp.
