    Should Be A Two-door — This was impressively fast and really fun to drive. It will, however, stall and make you look like an idiot if you put regular gas in the tank. My first reverse-three-sixty on dry pavement was in this car, enough said.

    Pros: The engine is huge, and powerful

    Cons: Cheaper interior, fuel pig, not a two door (as an ode to the original)

    Fan-frickin-tastic — This car has acceptional power with great fuel economy! Spacious interior makes it a great family car but still allows for some fun and excitment.

    Pros: HEMI V8 w/MDS

    Cons: I dont have enough money to mod the heck out if it.

    It's Big, Heavy, It's A Sedan.. It's Hilariously Fast. — Picked this up after returning from Korea and wanting something with some some seating capacity. I was happy to find the SRT8 Charger. For the money, you can't beat 425 HP and a 13 second 1/4 mile. 0-60 in 5 flat. Some do not like the look, I love it. Due to the proliferation of V6 Chargers, and even the occasional billy-badass R/T driver, most people assume it's much slower. It only gets about 17 mpg average, and it's not going to attack corners like a Porsche, but it does very well thanks to enhanced tuning and high-end parts from the Chrysler-Daimler SRT crew. I love the car. Lots of power, always fun to drive.

    Pros: Huge 425 bhp HEMI.  Looks mean as hell.  Can carry 5 people and 3 bodies int he trunk
    Smokes people who assume it's slow because it's big and there are plenty of V6 Chargers

    Cons: Sucks down gas.  HEAVY.

    Horsepower Out The Sunshine Hole — Great acceleration, great handling, great looks, great sound. A true Detroit muscle car for this century.

    Pros: Never heard anything else than a complement from anyone about it

    Cons: interior dash and doors could have been upgraded to a better material

    340 Horses, Leather Seating, Smooth Ride At Any Speed — Yeah, it's got a HEMI. Forget about any grudge you may have against the engineers who decided to put 4 doors on the original general lee classic; this car has the ability to tow you and 3 of your heaviest set friends and more. Although I wouldn't recommend taking this fiberglass and plastic shell over any ramps and trucks full of bails of hay, there is plenty of fun to be had in this car. Whether you are into just crusing or you want to light up some tires, this thing is ready for you. I have yet to have anyone sit in this car and not compliment something great about it. And maybe it's because I live in Detroit, but I have yet to have any lady not fall in love after the engine starts roaring and we cruise at 80 down I-696. You know that Cadillac commercial that asks, "When you turn your car on, does it return the favor?" Well, I'll see your self turn-on Cadillac, and I'll raise you my female passengers.

    Fast, Mean-looking, Luxurious Interior With Room For Four — The 2006 Dodge Charger SRT-8 is a 6.1L Hemi engined sedan that looks equally at home with a night out with the family or at the drag strip. Interior is nicely-appointed with leather-bolstered suede seats with SRT-8 stitched into the seatbacks. The 6.1L Hemi purrs nicely under a hood which features a functional air scoop to push air to the hungry engine. Despite being roughly a 360-cubic inch displacement, the engine can achieve MPG as high as 27 on the highway with the variable-cylinder feature that runs the engine as a 4 or 6 cylinder when the power of the 8 is not needed. There is more than enough room for a tall person in this car to stretch out and drive comfortably. The steering-wheel mounted controls for the radio and other features are easy to operate. The optional tinted windows add an element of privacy that is lacking in other modern vehicles. The new lifetime powertrain warranty offered by Dodge is just another great reason to consider any of the Charger line for a next vehicle purchase.

    Pros: Throaty hemi-powered fun, all-wheel drive optional

    Cons: Lower MPG in city driving, large blind spots due to rear quarter styling.

    Overall Impressive Handling And Style — Researched 1/2 dozen cars under $40K. Charger was choosen because of overall appearance, style, comfort and of course the HP. I have had the car for approximately 8 months and am still exited to drive it to work everyday, the only draw backs are gas mileage and the car does not hold it's own on a hill, this is especially bothersome in the winter. You take your foot of the brake, the car rolls back a couple of inches and then the rear wheel drive spins the tires in the snow.

    Hold On. — When I first saw the new Dodge Charger it was a big let down. A 4 door Charger. I could just not understand it at all. But thats okay. I got to drive one, and all that changed. That Hemi came alive and I forgot all about the 2 extra doors. If you ever get the chance, Drive one. You won't regret it.

    My Favorite Car — I like everything about this car but the braking system. I just bought it so it may just need new pads. I am the second owner of this car and some minor repairs need to be done but I really love it so far. Any tips on which kind of muffler to put on it are appreciated!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Awesome power- very comfortable-looks great with the chrome wheels and the tinted windows.

    Cons: Braking seems to be off
