2010 Dodge Avenger Overview

When the Avenger was new, some auto critics liked its sporty exterior, while others praised its spacious interior and its features list, which they felt made the Avenger fairly well-equipped in comparison with other 2010 midsize cars.

The 2010 Avenger ranks toward the bottom of its class for lots of reasons that outshine its positive attributes though. Performance is one of its downsides as test drivers said its four-cylinder engine was underpowered, while its V6 was loud and unrefined. Most reviewers said its brakes were inadequate, its handling was sloppy and its steering was highly artificial. Another negative is its interior. Reviewers complained about too many low-quality materials, a small trunk and wide panel gaps when the 2010 Avenger was new.

The front-wheel drive 2010 Dodge Avenger comes with a four-cylinder or V6 engine, which is paired with a four- or six-speed automatic transmission, respectively. Six airbags and anti-lock brakes are standard safety features on the 2010 Avenger, while electronic stability control and traction control were optional on higher trims. The Avenger has a standard auxiliary input and satellite radio, while it could be equipped with features like navigation, leather seats and a heated driver seat.

Other Cars to Consider

The 2010 Honda Accord is a practical, well-built used sedan. When it was new, auto critics liked its big, upscale interior, along with its crisp handling and powerful brakes. Electronic stability control and traction control were standard on the Accord, unlike the Avenger. The Accord is also available in coupe form for shoppers who prefer two doors.

The 2010 Ford Fusion offers lively handling, which makes it more fun to drive than many of its rivals, including the Avenger. Available all-wheel drive, an upscale cabin and a large interior and cargo area add to the Fusion's appeal.
