2013 Dodge Avenger Problems

The automatic transmission can develop problems like erratic shifting, rough shifting, or delayed gear engagement. Repairs for many of these problems are outlined in service bulletins.

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.

A rattle from the rear of the vehicle may indicate that the rear shock absorbers are defective. Updated shocks are available; however, careful inspection of all suspension components should be performed before any parts are replaced.

2013 Dodge Avenger Questions

the air lags before it blows. Dealer couldn't figure it out. Why does it do that?

Have had car in shop 6 times in one year. Does not want to shift and can't go over 40mph. When I turn the car off and back on, it is okay. They have replaced a valve body and computer on transmission. Just did it again 2 weeks ago. Had to take a rental car on vacation. This is crazy for a new...

2013 Dodge Avenger Recalls

522 vehicles equipped with a 2.4L engine are being recalled because the engine may have abrasive debris in the balance shaft bearings. The debris can result in premature wear and loss of engine oil pressure. As a result, the engine could stall unexpectedly or fail. Dealers will replace the engine balance shaft module to correct this concern.

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.

The vehicle emission control system includes a fuel vapor canister that stores excess fuel vapors and then releases them to be burned when the engine is running. A broken control valve in the fuel tank assembly could allow liquid fuel to enter the vapor canister, resulting in an engine stalling condition and/or a fuel leak. Having the engine stall while driving increases the risk of a crash and any fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect the fuel tank assembly on affected vehicles and replace a damaged control valve to correct this concern.
