1983 Dodge Challenger Review
Served Me Well For 165k Miles--the Ac Was Still Ice Cold. — This car never got much respect but, the performance for a 4 cyl was pretty good--better than today's 190hp Honda Accord 5-speed manual. I had the 2.6l version of this car and drove it for 165,000 miles with only one repair: replaced the water pump. I wasn't even that good at the time about routine maintenance such as oil changes, etc. I then sold it for a fair amount after 9 years.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: Performance, durability
Cons: Had a bad rep for crash test rating--luckily I didn't have an accident in it.

Great Looking Car, Fun To Drive
The car looks great from both inside and out. Blind spots can be a bit of a pain, but won't take away from the driving experience at all. Gas mileage is what you think it would be for a car like this.... Read More
