Why the 2013 Dodge Avenger?

Powertrain performance

Smooth,powerful acceleration with the V6. The 4cyl isn't bad at all,either! I currently own a R/T and rented the 4cyl for overa week. Go for theV6!

Handling

Handling is crisp and precise. I absolutely love the way this car rides and drives! My last car? A BMW 335i. Therefore, I think I know what makes for a fine driving and handling car :-) !

Interior styling

Excellent interior! Good quality, soft touch materials throughout with very comfortable seating. Although, I would have preferred that the center stack insert was textured or styled. Perhaps something similar to the current Charger's. The red stitching is avery nice touch in this Avenger though. Everything is in a perfect place ergonomically with surprisingly stylish and thoroughly modern touches.

Ride smoothness

The sport suspension is not jarring or intrusive like some other models. One sweet ride!

Audio & nav systems

One "expert" described the Boston Acoustics audio system as "decent". Yeah, that guy's an idiot. Someone please show him where the eq controls are! The iPod controls operate perfectly and are MUCH easier to useand live than Ford's SYNC! The nav does what a nav is supposed to do-give accurate directions and display them cleanly. I've used much more expensive navs in Bimmers and Fords which were "cleaner" with more "vivid displays" only to be disappointed and frustrated. The MyGig system in Chrysler products ROCK in my opinion.

Why Not the 2013 Dodge Avenger?

Tires

Well I hadto pick something, apparently. But let me be clear- There are NO reasons not to buy this car! If value, comfort, styling and performance mean somethignto yoy, then go and drive everything else-then drive this car last. Drive away with it feeling like you've gotten away with something. Pleased with its performance and all the money you saved on one of the industry's best kept secrets! Oh yeah, the tires. Use some of that money and put the tires you like on there:-)

Conclusion

No reason not to buy this car. Unless you like wasting money on what the experts claim is better than this I tested overa dozen cars that Motor Trend always picks over Dodge cars. I'm very glad that I waited on this one.
