Have owned a 2006 black R/T for 1 year now, bought with 35k. Best car I have ever had! I still get a big smile on my face when I see it in the parking lot after work. Very fast, handles great, family loves it. Fits kids and tons of stuff in trunk. Gas millage is on the low side in traffic but avg around 18-20 all told. Very reliable- not one issue so far. Fine in snow with decent winter tires and we live on steep hilled driveway. Get the car you have always wanted!

I own a Dodge charger R/T and must say I think I like the car more than I thought I would. I was aiming for a SRT8 charger, but I couldn't find one I could afford. I like the cars exterior design, my car is a white cream color that I think is the nicest and rarest of all the chargers. I love the cars performance, it handles better than you'd think a car this size would. I love almost everything about this car. But, they are a few things I wish were different, the steering can be overly sensitive, And I found it difficult to see traffic lights, no joke! I had to hunch down- head to the steering wheel so I can see the light. Its rather embarrassing at first but I got use to it, plus If my wifes in the car I just ask her to pay attention for the light to change, so I don't have to hunch over. All in all a 5 out of 6 for this car.

I bought a used 2006 str8. The car had 17139 miles at the time I bought it. I have always been a huge corvette fan but now with 2 kids that wasn't practical. Anyways I love the car. The seats are great, the power, while not as fast as a vette is still a lot of fun. It has a nce aggressive look. I have no regrets. The car is thisty but better than my z71.

I bought a 2006 Charger RT. Its fully loaded and I love it. It has power, great handling and anything else I could want. It has MDS so it kicks from 8cyl to 4 when cruising on the highway. It gets decent mileage as long as you drive more than 5miles at a time. When tuning the engine I was shocked to see it took 16 spark plugs which could become quite pricey. But people recommend using the cheap copper ones like from the factory. The interior is loaded with heated leather seats and dual climate control. There is a NAV system, and rear DVD for the kids. The trunk room is huge, and the rear seat is large enough you can fit a car seat and 2 full size adults. I was wondering if I would regret paying a little more for a little older car but I wouldnt take it back for anything. The car is amazing...

This is the best car I have ever owned. What a blast. I get all kinds of stares and comments on this car. I have a 2006 Charger R/T in brilliant Black Pearl. The Hemi is awesome. I installed a K&N cold air intake. She has 361 ponies now. It does make a difference in performance and fuel mileage. The growl of the HEMI is much throatier now. I have all the options except the rear DVD. Not worth the price. Blue tooth and NAV and Sirius are my fav's. I looked at the Mustangs and have ridden in one. Boy am I glad I didn't buy one. The Charger blows it away. You feel like a sardine in the Mustang. Even my sons 11 year old friends can't stop talking about my car. They want a ride all the time. I had a headlamp get condensation in it the first week I owned. Dealer fixed asap. I have 4100 miles on it now and I jump at the chance to drive it. My suggestion to all you prospective buyers is to compare the Rice burners and the other Muscle cars out there and you will buy this car hands down. I have the Perfomance shift/steer/exhaust package. Make sure you get that with tthe R/T. Not all have the package. Also, AWD comes on the 07. Traction control and ESP are very nice on a car at this price. This veh. has the Mercedes tiptronic trans and rides on a Mercedes multi link susp. Get one fast before they stop making them.....

Great car (SRT8) if you dont mind the MPG

I bought this SRT-8 in May of 08 when gas prices were extremely high, so I was able to get a good deal on it. The interior is quite cheap. Just a bunch of cheap plastic everywhere. The seats are the most comfortable ive ever sat in. The gas mileage is horrendous, but thats to be expected with a 4100lb car with a 6.1L engine in it. Runs very hot (the engine temperature will always be a quarter of the way to the right of 200) but Dodge says that is normal. Not a very comfortable ride. Brakes stop you on a dime. Fun car, but not for a daily driver unless you can chip out 4.25 for premium in a 19 gallon tank.

2006 Dodge Daytona Edition Hemi Charger with all the toys: Faster than I hoped for, everything makes the car fit absolutely perfectly, and Dodge found the sweet spot that combines comfort and performance. I have owned a 1966 custom Mustang and a 1972 TransAm among others and thought it would be nice to have a "go-fast" again. Oh yeah... Get the driver's settings just right and all you need is a 6 point seat belt. Adjustable pedals, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, infinitely adjustable super-comfortable premium sport seating ... impossible to ask for more! Great visibility, handles impeccably at all speeds. Great Hemi growl and tuned exhaust, doors close with a solid confident sound, esthetically pleasing cabin with intuitive controls on dash and steering wheel. A little pricey compared to comparable vehicles and plan to budget for 19 mpg MOL, but you will spend every dime without complaint. Enjoy the ride!
