Very Fun — Very fun, but loud car. Many mods available that can make it your dream car. Mods can be expensive though. Quick off the line and handles the curves better than almost any other sports car I've owned. A big win.

Hemi Interceptor...nuff said.

Cons

Fuel milege when you mash that gas pedal

Hemi, Hemi Hemi — This car is the latest to the collection. Being different is what I'm all about and this car helps me achieve just that. The Hemi Orange paint job, 20 inch chrome rims and nasty looking blackout accents let everyone else know I'm coming, This car is a family sedan that's also a sports car when you need it. And trust me, when this bad boy hits the pavement you're gonna need that sports car feel.

Get it with the HEMI engine!

Cons

I think these have too many issues with cooling systems.

Charger Rt — Great amount of room and performance out of a mid size sedan. Must get it with the HEMI. The 2.7L engine is junk and should be avoided at all cost! We enjoyed having the 2008 so much that we bought the 2011, and its even better!

Plenty of room when traveling. Lots of trunk and cabin space. Handles great and gets about 430 mpg on the highway on trips. In the city it gets about 28 - 30 mpg. I love this car it was a great investment.

Cons

Plastic windshield water jets break easily no matter how careful you are and they are costly to replace

Sexy Piece Of Crap — This car does not have a smooth and consistent start. It will cut off while I am driving. I will lose power steering and have to throw it into neutral and restart it as fast as I can. It is so dangerous!

Pros

This car is heavy so it handles very well around turns. I travel out of state alot and can make a 12 hour drive comfortably. Has alot of space and wiggle room in it plus the seats literally lay all the way back onto the back seats.

Cons

The brakes have squeaked no matter whether they get changed or not. I had a dodge before purchasing this car and it did the same thing. It does not drive in snow or ice due to it being RWD.

Only Owner And I Hate To See Her Go! — Overall I love this car. It is very comfortable and can make long trips bearable. I have been able to fit things in the trunk that you could not in a typical sedan car. I hate to see her go but I need a 4x4 due to where I live.

Charger — I love this car due to snow it's not easy to manage in the snow and it slides. I'm looking for something that can handle the weather and not put a lot of miles on my car. I want my charger to be strictly a summer car.

Great power, simple mechanics... No big issues.. Can haul ass but you should be careful on wet roads.

Cons

no CONS, this car was great, very easy to maintain. I even worked on my own brakes and assisted a friend of mine replace my spark plugs..

A Beast — If you looking for a family style car and something that will get up and go this is the car for you.. I had so much fun in this car. Modifying the exhaust, installing the wheels, decals, DVD player and tint made it into a beast.
