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".

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.

I've had my Charger for over 3 years now and I'm in love with it. Very reliable, beautifully styled inside and out, a blast to drive too! I did upgrade the tie rods to performance ones but other than that the car is completely stock. I've taken it on long drives and it performs very well. Can make it from southern Kentucky to northern Indiana on one tank of gas if i behave! It's strictly rear wheel but even in the harsh winters where i live (if I'm forced to drive it in the snow) it does very well. I've passed many suvs, hummers, and trucks that have been stuck or off the road!

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.

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!!

we've had the 08 Charger 3.5L for about 6 months now and 7500 miles later, we STILL LOVE IT. it's very comfortable, gets respectable gas mileage (22-24) and it great on long trips. it has more than enough power and if I choose, I can 'chirp' the rear tires! COOL...just like the Charger of old, almost. I highly recommend the Charger.
