Have you driven a 1982 Dodge Challenger?
1982 Dodge Challenger Overview
The 1982 Dodge Challenger retained the retooled roof design from 1981. Otherwise, Chrysler left any tinkering and adjustments to actual owners. Don't be fooled by its somewhat boring compact car appearance. Underneath, the 1982 Challenger is pretty speedy for its 4-cylinder size, to the delight of drivers who kept these dependable cars for years.
Along with a fast ride, the Challenger comes with good fuel economy for the time (around 20 mpg) and luxury options on the inside (again, luxury for the time), such as electronic readouts, power windows, tilt steering, lumbar support and power brakes.
No major problems or recalls seem to haunt the Dodge Challenger, and those that do crop up concern the carburetor system and cracks in the cylinder heads.
