Best Car I Have Ever Owned — I liked the design and after I added the extra things it just became a real head turner. It sounds great and has plenty of power. I have owned 2 dodge vehicles now and I am looking for my third. You just can't go wrong with the heritage design

This Car Is Beast. Nuff Said. — Buy one, you will enjoy it. This car truly lets you feel its power. The six speed transmission is a blast. I constantly get thumbs ups from people for it. This car is just awesome. I can only imagine what an SRT or Mopar Edition Challenger would be like

What can you say!!!  Get a lot of looks when driving it.  It is fast.  

Cons

Maintenance cost: tires expensive, tight racing suspension make for a drive not smooth and a lot of front end alignment if hit bumps.

Look At The That Sexy Retro — What I like the most is the power. But I also like it when windows are up because they are dark and I step out and everyone sees it is a "girl" driving a hot rod car. I have had many make comments about non fuel efficiency.

Awesome — Bought this car new in o8 for my birthday to my self ! Enjoyed every moment of it. One of those cars you regret getting rid of . Took it to bike week in Daytona beach in 09 had a blast. Two different times I had someone jump in front off the car and bow down and said I made bike week for him that year, I don't know how it was bike week ?

Pros

The car has pretty good power for a V6. It is very smooth to drive and extremely quiet. There is plenty of room for 4 adults or 2 adults and three children.

Cons

Access to the rear seat is from the passenger side only.

Great Car — The car has pretty good power for a V6. It is very smooth to drive and extremely quiet. The sound system is better than average. Handling is very good for a car of this size - it's not small, but also not really a full size car. The car gets lots of attention and is just fun to drive.

Great Retro Automobile — Love everything about the interior, exterior, leg room, trunk space, back seat and engine compartment room. This car is not built for speed or racing, but for cruising comfort and enjoying the roads. Six speed transmission is tight, but great. No problems after 3 years and 18K miles.

My R/t Challenger — i have the r/t, which has great power, it handles very well for such a big car. trunk space is excellent. leather interior is very nice. all in all, a very fun car to drive! i would definitely recommend this car, especially if you're sick of seeing camaro's and mustangs everywhere!

Pros

Ample amount of power at your disposal, sounds great with headers and exhaust.  The interior is spacious for the driver and passenger.  The exterior styling is beautiful and fits well with Dodge's attempt to bring the past back.  The performance matches the size of the car.

Cons

Has the feel of of the large car that it is.  The rear seats are not very spacious.  There are a few blind spots toward the rear of the car.  The interior is simple, and it is styled very close to the Charger.

Decent Car For Its Size — It had plenty of power and agility for the large car that it is, and would satisfy some ones need for power with the 6.1L HEMIs. The car wouldn't be a well suited road coarse car and would make a better straight line car. I wasn't able to take the car to its limits but from the driving that was done this car just doesn't have the feel of a car you can put in to hard G cornering and feel as comfortable with as you would with a smaller coupe.
