2011 Dodge Avenger Problems

The anti-theft system may cause a no start condition due to electrostatic discharge (ESD) affecting the wireless control module (WCM). There is an updated WCM to correct this issue.

The carpet under the right side of the dash may become wet with water. This can be caused by the AC evaporator drain being plugged with debris. Our technicians tell us that once the drain is clear, a cabin air filter should be installed to keep debris out.

2011 Dodge Avenger Recalls

Active head restraints are designed to move forward and upward as necessary in the event of a rear end collision. These vehicles are being recalled because an internal fault in the occupant restraint control module could cause the active head restraints not to function as expected, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will reprogram the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) or replace the occupant restraint control module as necessary to correct this concern.

Some vehicles may have been assembled with a missing or incorrectly installed steering column pivot rivet. This could result in a loss of steering capability, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the rivet and repair the steering column as required. This recall is expected to begin during June 2011. The Chrysler recall number is L23.

2011 Dodge Avenger Reviews

good car over all, but the trunk fills with water every time it rains, and that the trunk lid not the inside of the car. so when i oped it the water dumps out through the latch that locks it shut.

I bought my 2011 in February of this year. And I love this car. With ONE exception. The paint won't stay on it. I got the shiny new red, and where the side panels meet the bumbers, the paint will not stay on due to rubbing/vibration while driving. All in all my car has been in the shop for one month already (out of the 10 I have owned it) for paint issues. Now, the bumper and trunk are rubbing ...

this is so crazy! i have a 2010 and my trunk does the same thing.. So much for having storage or a place to put your groceries or shopping bags!!!
