The 2.7L Six Drives Like a Dream

I reserved one of these as a rental from Dollar on a weekend trip because I have never had experience with one of these cars before. Mine was Inferno Red. Forget all the negative comments you hear about the 2.7L Six, I didn't have to fill it up too much, even though I did a lot of highway and city driving in it. I loved it, and can't wait to rent an '09 Challenger next year on my upcoming trip. This drove like a dream, even with RWD and a Six. I would recommend this car to anyone who is looking for "budget muscle".

Red & Smooth

by from Alabama on January 17, 2009

Cool car. No problems after about a year. 2008 came with a lifetime power train warranty. All our friends wish that they had one. The SXT with the V6 has preformed well. Recommed to all.

Bought for my wife and have had about a year. Lots of space and comfortable. I'm tall and it is very comfortable for me if I'm in the back, but that's rare. Engine is effective, but a little underpowered. But just fine for her. Biggest complaint is the blandish and big dash.

I have this car for two years now. So far no problems at all. I love it. I took it to autocross once and it handles very well. It's got enough power for anything you need. This is my family car. With two car-seats in the back there is enough room for third person. There is only few sedans like that on the market BMW 7 series, Genesis, Merc. and Audi A8 are the only ones with comparable size. The car is quite and very comfortable inside. The ride is firm but not rough, just like it needs to be. The only downside is gas mileage 18/miles a gallon on average.

Best Dodge Ever!

The Charger is one of the best cars in the market! I like the looks of it and I find my self looking at it every time I park it! The V6 engine is great and it's very smooth! It’s not as powerful as the V8 but it’s doing a great JOB! The interior is poor, and the plastic dashboard look cheap! Leather Seats are great though. The car rides smoothly with a quiet interior where u almost hear nothing from the outside. Finally, I would recommend this car and personally I find it the best car in its category.

Killer Comfort and Handles Like a DREAM.

We just got our R/T with R package. We love this vehicle. Our's was a demowith 6,000 miles on it. It also came with with all the bells and whistles and the stone white interior with the gray seats/w red stitching is great. The only detail I wish was on the car is that the stitching color could have been carried forward to the leather covered steering wheel and the slapstick leather covering on the stick shift. The car handles wonderfully, rides like my old Lincoln Continentals used to and we live in the mountains and the curvy roads do not stop this suspension. I am having the performance exhaust, headers, and air intake changed out to make the car sound even better and get better mileage. Over all this car is KILLER!!

Bold Looks, Superior Ride

Beautifully aggresive front end, smooth body lines, and an understated rear end. V6 feels good, but not that quick. Engine runs very smooth and quite. When taking off it lags before 15 mph, and after 50pmh, but in between the acceleration feels adequate. The transmission shifting is not noticable, unless you keep the foot on the floor, and then the engine feels like it should shift faster than it does. Interior is comfortable for me being fairly tall. I was disappointed with the tilt and telescoping wheel. This is the first time I have had that option, but with it down as far as possible and out as far as possible its still not close enough. I am use to Dodge trucks where just the tilt will put the steering wheel in your lap. I feel very comfortable with the lifetime warranty. Manual states you must get it checked up every five years within 60 days of the purchase date to maintain coverage. Overall I love the front end look, ride, room of interior, and in cab sound levels. I do not like the range of the tilt/telescoping steering, the door hinges dont hold the door open when exiting so the door either swings out freely, or comes back at you, and the trunk is a little difficult to close.

I have always been a Chev man. They have nothing in a V-8 that says style and power I bought my Charger R/T about a month ago. It is very fast and comfortable.I get a lot of nods. I have not had any problems. Best and fastest car for the money. This is a new age muscle car (esp. in black). drinks gas though and has blind spot
