Pros

The sportiest, hottest retro muscle car you could ever want!

Cons

With a 6.1L Hemi which takes 93 octane....fuel mileage is a con. But hey - what'd u expect?

Impressive Power And Handling With A Retro Look And Very Comfortable To Drive! — My 2008 Challenger SRT is the first edition year and numbered (873 of 6400). The car is magnificent and a real head turner.With a 6.1L Hemi - just hang on for the ride! This is a BIG sports car. Bigger than the Camaro and Mustang, adults can actually sit with some level of comfort in the back seats. My SRT8 has a sunroof which we absolutely love. The interior in this version of the Challenger is meant to be retro - so - other than partial leather seats which are extremely comfortable, the interior wont blow you away. Remember - in 08 a retro (circa 1970) look was the "in" thing. Love my Challenger!

Pros

From day one I loved everything about this car. Although I am a true mopar fanatic

Cons

Heavy and large - tough to find a good parking spot without getting a door ding in the metro area.

Love My Black Beauty — Car handles great despite what others would call a overweight beast. I enjoy the ride and comfort level this car provides, tons of leg room and comfy seats that hold you in place when you want to get a little more aggressive during rush hour.

SUPER FUN never a dull moment on th eroad with this car

Cons

The 91 octane is a bit expensive at the pump but well worth it

Too Bad They Only Made 6400 Cause Everyone Needs One Of These — This car is amazing. 425hp is plenty to move this solid car down the road at whatever speed you want. And the Matching torque gives you plenty of acceleration from any speed. Exterior styling cant be beat by any competitor and the interior is set up to match the outside. Gas mileage you would expect from a mid sized family car not a full sides performance car.

Cons

Everyone stares at this artpiece!!

Bye If You Have The Cha-ching. — could always be faster and quicker. takes curves over 100 mph. gerts about19-20 mpg. seats hold u in place and r comfy. will easily leave half the tread on the road and in the air. also mine is a sweet ass black color.

Get One - Pure Naturally Aspirated Fun! — This is nothing short of pure naturally aspirated fun! So far I have a 0-60 in 4.9 sec with another passenger. It is pretty much fully loaded and will run like a scared rabbit! A few upgrades are the catback exhaust, straight line trim on the grill, cold air intake, and lowered suspension.

Hemi

Cons

none

The Challenger Is The King Of The Road — preformance - acceleration, braking, handling unbelieveable. Hemi orange, grey lether interior. Here is a car where one doesnt have to take the cover off, remove the battery charger put air in the tires and sit there for a few minutes cranking the car over to get it to start. All this just to have some fun.. A new icon for a new generation. Car enthusiasts of today get a chance to see what life was like 35 yrs ago during the muscle car era.

Exhaust

Awesome Car! — This car is amazing! The only thing i would change is the exhaust system. The exhaust isn't very loud like a hot rod should be. It has the appearance of an old car, but the luxuries of a new car. The 08 i drove was an automatic, i can't wait to drive the manual!

2008 Dodge Challenger Srt8 — Vintage looks. Very Fast. Sounds great. Everyone loves it. People gather round to check it out where ever I park it. Solid ride. Feels heavy. A little bit stiff but not bad for a muscle car. Seats are very comfortable. Vision while backing up is somewhat limited. Nice to open hood and see a Hemi engine under there.
