Pros

Great size for a tall person, plenty of room and trunk space. Great style, gets a lot of looks. 6 cylinder engine gives good fuel economy for the size.

Cons

6 cylinder doesn't have a lot of punch from a dead stop, but still plenty of power. Larger car, so doesn't handle like a sports car.

Rare Dub Edition Charger — Been driving this car since it was nearly new. Bought from my wife's sister at 1 year old with very few miles. Been a great car for me. Plenty of legroom in the front and back. Great looking car. I've gotten more attention from this car than any other I've owned.

Fantastic — The best car I've had by far, very fast and full of muscle, but also very easy drivable and a good cruiser. Double Magna-flow exhausts which makes the car stand out from your regular charger. Tinted windows and interior LED lights for an awesome interior experience.

Pros

Lifetime bumper to bumper warranty.  Hemi V8 power.

Cons

Build quality from Chrysler could be better.  Body panel fit on these cars is not the greatest.

Stunning Looks, Great First Impression. — Love my Charger, Dodge customer service not always the best. Fun to drive and great for long trips. The leg room in this car is great for tall people. Gas mileage is about what you expect from a big V8 engine.

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

Pros

Tons of power, lots of torque. Literally got me out of an accident as I scooted out of the way. Had I less power in my car, I would have been t-boned! Fun to drive, 4 doors and a big trunk!

Cons

Not the best gas mileage obviously, but overall decent for how much it weighs and the big honking hemi!

Big Power, Big Fun — Overall this car has great handling for its size and power. Its a big rear-wheel drive sedan. But this version, my car, the Pursuit Edition, has notable upgrades like a stiffed up and beefed up heavy-duty suspension, a heavy duty alternator, tons of power, tiptronic transmission, heavy duty oil cooler and more powerful battery. It's a strong, fun, semi-practical car. I get looks everywhere I go. Everyone asks me about it.

Pros

Fun, lots of cargo, head-turner given its a police car

Cons

MPG can suffer a lot if you get on it!

Fun, Big Sedan With Lots Of Power And A Unique Style. — If you step on it, this car will move quickly but be wary as your MPG will suffer substantially. Overall, it's a great car and handles well given its size. It has lots of room and is simple inside but it's somewhat of a sleeper given it's blacked out nature and police spotlight. This used to be a police cruiser but I've added several OEM features like srt8 fascia, hood, wheels and exhaust to round out its appearance.

Excellent Car — I love my new car. It handles very well. It is definitely fun to drive. I like the dashboard, it is easy to see all of the controls. I drive a combination of city and highway daily for 52 miles roundtrip. I fill up every 4 days.
