Pros

Been a great car overall.. Lots of fun to drive.. Power when you need and nice ride!

Cons

A gas pig for sure... but what do you expect in this big car with a big motor and big right foot!

Raw Power With Attitude And White Knuckles On The Steering Wheel Keeping Her In Line. — I have had the car for 102000 miles at this point.. Car has been good. No real issues to speak of just general maintenance items. Car gets about 17 miles to the gallon if your nice... 14 if you have fun... and 19 on the Highway... I don't like MDS so I have it disabled. I have gotten as much as 24 on the highway with it working but just can't handle the sound it produces a low growl of 4 cylinder it also causes the car to pulse as it turns on and off when needed... just not worth it to me. If you are going to drive this kind of car and change the exhaust MDS is not an option... This is a straight line machine the curves is just all under steer.. like crazy! It will just push it self into a corner you have to do alot of breaking while turning to change weight to the front tires and then give gas to get out of it... Fun to toss around once you get the hang of it... A trick for all Chargers 07-09 I think while car is moving above 5 miles an hour just turn the key fob and hold.. .your traction control light will turn on and it will disable all traction control.... ALL TRACTION CONTROL... then you can have some real fun!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

2008 Charger Daytona R/t — This car is beyond awesome!!! It handles like a dream and the 350 horsepower is more than enough to please. I spotted this car at the dealer, took a cell phone picture and sent it to my wife, her two word reply, "Buy It!", was all it took to solidify the deal, lol. I sat down with the Sales Manager and worked a deal out the door for $28,780.00. But before I signed anything I brought my wife in to drive it, 2 hours later we took delivery. It is the Daytona R/T in Hemi Orange Pearl with a build number of 676 out of 1,650 made. The interior seats our family of 5 comfortably and this car is rock solid, no noise, no rattles, nothing but awesome. I cannot drive this car without getting attention (including the police, lol) everywhere we go. We have a 2008 Lincoln MKZ with the 265 hp V-6 and the Charger does better on gas. I was getting 20 MPG in the Daytona and the Lincoln was doing 19 MPG when we took them both on vacation. I don't miss my Ram at all, except when needing to move something, lol. If you've got the money and want some modern muscle, you've got to get one of these bad boys...You only live once.

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.

Pros

The car is aggressive looking and has the power to back it all up! The perfect vehicle for the family man who itches for that muscle car feel. From the HEMI powerplant generating an undeniable thirst for the highway to the solidity of the suspension to keep the car handling like a sports car, this vehicle has had me grinning at every light!

Cons

The car is pretty heavy and requires a good deal of that HEMI power to get it moving. I couldn't imagine the V6 get up and go. The body roll is always there, so the power to the wheels sometimes fades when you have to make that upcoming turn.

The Modern Muscle That Family Men Need — As stated above, the HEMI power is just smile inducing. The comfort that this car exudes on the roads, whether it be light to light or open highway is amazing. The gadgetry in the cockpit leaves you feeling like James Bond as you cycle radio stations with either the steering wheel controls or the MyGIG touch screen. The heated seats shake off the bitter cold in the winters and the sunroof lets you bask in those sunny summer days. This car turns heads at the grocery stores or whatever other family duties you may encounter, but lets you chuckle when you slam the accelerator and feel the car jump up and go. I have few gripes with this vehicle. Mainly the heaviness and bodyroll, but any visit to performance shop can cure those ailments!

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.

I Love My Charger — Very comfortable, love the ipod hook up, comes standard with sirus radio, Standard speakers work nicely, 16 gallon tank takes about $30-35 to fill up and gets pretty good gas milage. Wonderful for new familys and traveling! Loads of space in the trunk and inside. Perfect for a husband/ Father that doesnt want to drive a SUV but still have the room and sport!
