No I am not using the on board trip computer...it was on the money though.
I do not need a concensus to report facts.
If I tell you a rooster dips snuff you can check under his wing for the can!

Just checking out Avenger posts again and noticed your comment. I wanted to let you know that since your profile indicates NY State, and I live in Michigan, if you have remote start or simply have a tendency to "warm up" your vehicle for extended time, (10minutes or more is extended), your fuel economy will be significantly lower. I have remote start on both my minivans and the week I simply let them run for about 2-3 minutes before driving away, my economy stayed in the 20-21mpg avg range. When I let them idle for 15-20 minutes, my economy dropped down to 17.5-18mpg. Both of these tests involved mainly city driving. Also, using remote start in both Chrysler 3.3L equipped V6 engines warrants more frequent tune ups than normal. Like every 30-40K instead of 100K. I don't like getting in a cold vehicle, so I'll pay the extra. Just an fyi.

I have a 2012 4 cylinder Avenger with 6 speeds and after 2,200 miles I am only getting 16-18 city, 28 highway.
My old 2010 Avenger used to get 22 city and 37.6 highway 65 mph.
Both cars have 18.5 gallon tanks, and 4 cylinder. Even in cold weather like we are getting now, I still got 20 mpg city.

My last tank show a worsening of Gas Mileage. Mixed driving I am getting 17.0. I have never gotten over 18 in city driving or 29 highway. The car has over 4300 miles on it and not showing any sign of improvement. I recently put full synthetic in the car and it has not helped at all.
I recently read elsewhere that some cars are having issues with dragging brakes with 4 wheel disc with abs and traction control.
I plan to take it back to the dealer to check that out.

Im considering buying an Avenger.. after reading your post. i think i'll be looking for a 2010 model. 37 mpg i'm not sure why i'd buy a new car. Most posts in here seem to be getting much worse mpg with the new model. Out of curiosity, why did you switch cars when your 2010 was only 2 yrs old. ?

I almost regret buying the 2012. I thought based on EPA ratings and 6 speed trans, I would top 37 on the highway. So far, I have gotten 29 mpg. I am still getting 18 around town. I have 4,400 on it now. I do like the interior upgrade and overall, its seems to be a better car. The Gas mileage is only complaint.
BTW, The 2010 that I had was 100% trouble free from the 1st day I had it. I bought it new.

I have a 2012 Avenger with 11,000 miles on it. So far, its been perfect except for gas mileage which has been poor in City driving 18-21 mpg but pretty good on the highway so far. I get as high as 33 mpg highway. Mixed driving seems to fall in the 23-25 range.
This car has a 6-speed Auto trans. I use to get better mpg with a 2010 Avenger I had.
Anyone have similar or better experience?

Anyone else have one? I just got mine with a 2.4 engine.
