Pros

Great power and style, in a supriaingly practical car.  A huge trunk and usable back seats make this my main family car.

Cons

Big blind spots make backing up and changing lanes somewhat difficult.  Snow tires are a must if you dive in winter weather. If you care about fuel economy looks elsewhere, that's not the point of this car.

Dodge Challenger Srt8 392-turning Petroleum Into Happiness. — What a great car, fun and practicle. This car is a much better choice than its camaro and mustang compition, it's roomy and comfortable. If you want that classic car feel without compromise this car is for you. Go muscle cars!

Sweet Ride — great car with amazing speed and looks, wish i was tougher when it came to the outside materials, breath taker, soon to be classic, must have if one loves american muscle cars. would recommend to 20-30 american men. Insurance is much cheaper with a v6 engine

Srt8 392 — I bought a Challenger SRT8 392 on a whim. Having never test driving or even looked at buying one since the 2008 model was introduced, but I knew I had to have the 392. First impression is AWESOME!! The power is insane and, to my surprise, the car handles really well. I went through a set of rear tires pretty quick. This car is super fun to drive.

I Love This Car — I love the look of my 2012 Challenger SRT8 . Wish the shaker hood was an option when I purchased the car new in 2012. I can't wait to see how the new Hellcat preforms against the rivals ! Can't imagine more than 700 HP under the hood !

Best Retro Version To Date! — After owning this redesigned classic i do believe its the most fun and best performing car i have owned. Now that being said its also the worst car i have owned that saw the dealership more than any other car i have owned. Overall i will keep her till i die with more mod's of course.

Pros

Style, the car looks amazing and turns heads no matter where you go. You will always be drawing attention.
Cargo Capacity is huge! You can haul anything inside this beast.

Cons

Family car nope getting in and out of the backseats is a chore, would not be easy with car seats. Fuel Economy on this car is terrible there is no way it averages what they say it averages.

I Loved It :p — Power, I think the R/T classic 5.7 liter V8 with 6-speed transmission should be 400 HP out the door not 376. Maintenance- Only had to replace tires and brakes that's because I had too much fun. Backseats, are huge and roomy lots of things took place back there. Handling- amazing for a large car still very nimble. Front seats amazingly comfortable you can road trip in them for sure. Reliability 100%. Price and power go together on a sports car if it had 25 more horsepower this would have made 5 stars in the power and price categories.

Dodge Challenger 2012 — This all american Challenger is stylish and powerful. It has 376 horses and rear wheel drive, 0-60 is around 5 and a half seconds. It has decent fuel economy compared to some of my other cars. 15 City / 23 HWY.

Beautiful Car With Unique Features Tailored. One Of A Kind That's Never Forgotten — Enjoyed the traveling in Europe, how many Europeans enjoyed the beauty of the interior/exterior of the Challenger. Handled great during summer but had difficulties in the winter season especially with snow/ice that was a scare to drive in at times.
