Model Highlights

For 2011, the Avenger is available in four trim levels: Express, Mainstreet, Lux and R/T. The standard engine on all but the R/T is 2.4L 173-hp 4-cylinder engine, paired with a 4-speed automatic transmission on the Express and a 6-speed auto on the Mainstreet and Lux. Standard on the R/T and optional elsewhere is Chrysler's 3.6L Pentastar V6, which makes 283 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. It comes only with the 6-speed automatic.

The suspension also was given a redesign for 2011, with new geometry pushing the track width out to nearly 63 inches front and rear, with ride height dropping a half inch in front and a quarter inch in the rear. Dodge claims 26 of the 30 suspension bushings used in the Avenger have been redesigned, and with wider tires now used, handing is much improved over the 2010 model.

Inside, the Avenger features a redesigned dashboard, new colorful gauges and updated seating featuring new, more upscale materials and better spring assemblies. Dodge says 45 new or upgraded sound deadening treatments have been added, quieting the ride and giving a much more solid overall feel.

Safety features in the Avenger include multistage front airbags, active head restraints for the front seats and front and rear side-curtain airbags. Four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes are standard, as is Chrysler's ESP stability control system.

Even the base-level Express comes well-equipped, with body-color door handles, power heated mirrors, high-efficiency tires, new 17-inch wheels, an 8-way power driver's seat, leather-wrapped wheel and automatic climate control. Other features across the line include air conditioning, power locks and windows, split-folding rear seat, Bluetooth, satellite radio and USB interface. The R/T features sport suspension as well as unique interior and exterior styling. The Lux and the R/T both feature leather upholstery standard, as well as heated front seats. An available Heat package on the Mainstreet adds unique wheels and trim, a hard drive for music storage, and a cell phone link. It's only available on Mainstreet V6-equipped Avengers.


Model News

For 2011, the Dodge Avenger sees a host of changes, including an exterior facelift, an all-new interior and a new V6 engine. On the outside, the Avenger has a new grille, revised LED taillights and new bumpers. Inside, the instrument cluster and dash are completely new and the seats have been redesigned with increased comfort in mind. Chrysler's 3.6L Pentastar V6 is also now part of the lineup, making 283 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with Autostick manual control.


Value Writeup

For a mid-sized sedan, the Avenger stands out in two ways: aggressive, sporty styling, which is borrowed from the Dodge Charger, and its fuel economy, which can manage as high as 30 mpg on the highway. The Avenger's new, redesigned interior features nicer materials and is quieter than in years past, and its upgraded styling and quality makes it a viable alternative in a crowded small car market. The R/T Avenger appeals to driving enthusiasts, and includes sporty suspension, leather interior and special exterior styling.

Summary
CHRYSLER IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2011DODGE JOURNEY, JEEP WRANGLER, CHRYSLER 200, CHRYSLER 200 CONVERTIBLE, DODGE AVENGER, DODGE NITRO, JEEP LIBERTY, DODGE CALIBER, JEEP COMPASS, JEEP PATRIOT, DODGE GRAND CARAVAN AND CHRYSLER TOWN & COUNTRY VEHICLES. SOME OF THESE VEHICLES MAY HAVE BEEN BUILT WITH A MISSING OR INCORRECTLY INSTALLED STEERING COLUMN PIVOT RIVET.

Consequence
A MISSING OR INCORRECTLY INSTALLED RIVET COULD COMPROMISE THE ABILITY OF THE STEERING COLUMN TO SUPPORT THE OCCUPANT LOADS IN THE EVENT OF A FRONTAL CRASH, DECREASING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE FRONTAL IMPACT SAFETY SYSTEM. AS A RESULT, THE CONDITION MAY INCREASE THE POTENTIAL FOR INJURY IN A FRONTAL CRASH.

DEALERS WILL INSPECT FOR RIVET PRESENCE AND ALIGNMENT AND REPAIR THE STEERING COLUMN PIVOT AS REQUIRED, FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING JUNE 2011. OWNERS MAY CONTACT CHRYSLER AT 1-800-853-1403.

Summary
Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2011-2013 Sebring and 200 vehicles manufactured June 28, 2011, through December 13, 2012; model year 2011-2013 Dodge Avenger vehicles manufactured June 25, 2011, through January 14, 2013; model year 2011-2012 Dodge Nitro vehicles manufactured June 17, 2011, through December 15, 2011; and model year 2011-2012 Jeep Liberty vehicles manufactured June 17, 2011, through August 15, 2012. Electrical over-stress of a resistor in the occupant restraint control module may lead to the non-deployment of the active head restraints during a rear impact collision.

Consequence
In the event of a crash necessitating the deployment of the active head restraints , their non-deployment could increase the risk of injury.

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will flash the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) or replace the occupant restraint control module, as needed, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in August 2013. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753. Chrysler's recall campaign number is N38.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov.
