Good Sedan — Like the motor, looks good, plenty of space. Dislike mpg, curb weight, no manual tranny. I would recommend this car to my friends looking for a powerful & great looking v8. Maintenance can get expensive but if you shop smart it won't be so bad.

2006 Dodge Charger Srt8 — The 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8 is a work of art. The car looks fast standing still! The cars performance is outstanding, fast, handles well and has a ton creature comforts. Mine had every option. This car is a fantastic example of wrap outstanding performance with class. I sold it due to the 14 MPG and its need to run on premium, $100 per week to get back and forth to work was a bit much.

Fast, Mean-looking, Luxurious Interior With Room For Four — The 2006 Dodge Charger SRT-8 is a 6.1L Hemi engined sedan that looks equally at home with a night out with the family or at the drag strip. Interior is nicely-appointed with leather-bolstered suede seats with SRT-8 stitched into the seatbacks. The 6.1L Hemi purrs nicely under a hood which features a functional air scoop to push air to the hungry engine. Despite being roughly a 360-cubic inch displacement, the engine can achieve MPG as high as 27 on the highway with the variable-cylinder feature that runs the engine as a 4 or 6 cylinder when the power of the 8 is not needed. There is more than enough room for a tall person in this car to stretch out and drive comfortably. The steering-wheel mounted controls for the radio and other features are easy to operate. The optional tinted windows add an element of privacy that is lacking in other modern vehicles. The new lifetime powertrain warranty offered by Dodge is just another great reason to consider any of the Charger line for a next vehicle purchase.

Pros

Love this car. It's roomy, powerful and comfortable. Never had any issues with her and she's a beaut.

Cons

The rear floor board heater duct runs under the carpet on the drivers side. At times when stepping into the car you will step on the duct. Very odd place to place the duct.

Love — I have never had any issues with this car. It gets tons of compliments, it's power for being a V6, there's plenty of room and she never lets you down. I've had this car for almost 4 years and there's never been a time that I didn't enjoy driving it.

Wonderfully sized, 4-door sports car.  Plenty of room for the family without sacrificing performance.  Looks are unbelievably nice.  For a 5.7L, upwards of 30 MPG on the highway.

Cons

none

Great Car For The Performance Driver And The Family. A Modern-day Classic! — This wonderful car has been a great addition to our family! She drives beautifully whether on the highway or the country roads where she hugs them without fail. We are looking forward to our next Charger if Dodge continues to build them or the Challenger.

Sturday, Fast, Good Handling, Safe, Cool to look at

Cons

Sports-Car mpg (17-23)

Dodge Charger Rt — Performance - It has great acceleration, good braking and handling. Its corners not quite as tight as I would like for a performance car, but its cornering is great compared to cars in its class. It also makes a great sound when it starts. Features - roomy, including the trunk. The interior is nice and although its rear-wheel drive, I feel safer in this car than in any other car I've driven. Appearance - Aggressive, eye-catching and it just looks fast. Which it is. Fun Factor - This car has it. Lots of it. Cons - Its mpg is generally less than 18 in the city and only exceeds 19 on extended interstate driving (more than an hour). I have gotten as much as 23, which is good for a sports car, but just not great in general.

A Little Pricy But I Love My Car! — I loved the power and sound of the pipes when you hit the gas you definitely gain respect driving this bad boy on the road. It is also very spacious and attractive definitely turns many heads! Only bad thing was you don't get great gas mileage.

My Favorite Car — I like everything about this car but the braking system. I just bought it so it may just need new pads. I am the second owner of this car and some minor repairs need to be done but I really love it so far. Any tips on which kind of muffler to put on it are appreciated!

Great Car But Best Used As A Weekend Or Occasional Driver — I absolutely love my SRT8. It is fast, loud, and the center of attention on the highway. The only down fall is expenses and how low the front end is. I will need to repaint the front bumper and replace the plastic shroud underneath from how much it has been scraped up just parking. I highly recommend this vehicle for anyone who likes a sporty, luxurious, and very spacious 4 door car.
