    2008 Charger R/t — Torque-monster. Rated at 350hp, this is a perfect street car. Amazingly fun to drive. Has enough power and acceleration to put a smile on anyone's face on the street and has potential for track uses. Car needs a few things to get it to break out of its shell. It doesn't breathe well and needs air in/out as well as a PCM tuner. Though the aforementioned mods did not contribute much power at all, they did however radically change the way the car drove. The suspension and brakes are a little lacking compared to the SRT, but unless you're autocrossing you probably don't need anything better than stock. Car looks gorgeous but rides a little high at stock height. Gas mileage is around 17mph on 93 octane after tune. Stock rotors are terrible; had them replaced at 10K miles under warranty. On that note, the lifetime warranty is nothing short of amazing.

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

    Pros: Affordable, fun street car

    Cons: Slightly lacking in racing performance

    Super Combination Of Fun And Practical, All Sports Car Even With The Rear Doors... —

    2008 Hemi orange Daytona - 7k miles so far - 1 ticket. Love this car! I traded a porsche 911 in for this Daytona and figured that I'd have buyer's remorse at some point - but not yet! This car does it all with serious practicality - especially love the fold down rear seats - and yet still gets cheers, wide eyed kid stares and catcalls from everyone yu drive by. The strobe stripes are a bit much, but the classic orange looks great even when dirty, and the daytona interior is worth every penny spent for the extra comfortable seats. Only gripes so far are the tendency for the headlights and windshield fogging up all the time. It seems like no matter the weather, I am always fighting condensation on the front surfaces. This car has passed the 4 guy, 6' plus tall roadtrip test with flying colors, and not bad on gas. Cruise control works great, but stick is in an awkward place near the wheel rim. Guages are excellent at night. AC is nice, heated seats will roast you if you want them to, but heater seems weak. Needs 89 octane - really dislikes 87 or even 93. Underhood seems hot as hell, but radiator seems to handle it - guages read normal. Warranteed replacement of rear differential seals at 6000 miles. Tightened up metal seams at back of floorpans on underside with rtv and undercoat as they looked like probable future trouble spots. Nice suspension feel all around. I will report back on winter driveability if I can find some decent snowtires and rims to fit over these massive front brakes.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great color, fun factor, roomy trunk, fast, light for it's size.

    Cons: cruise control stick is weirdly placed, foggy lights and windshield - Should be able to fit a 17" front wheel

    My Charger — Love the look, it's sleek... handles very, very nicely... no major repairs yet... cost of ownership is a bit high (ouch on gas when compared to a regular 4 cyl sedan-- but average for any 6 cyl) but it is super fun to drive!!!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Sleek, sporty and elegant

    Cons: Gas!!!

    Would Recommend To Anyone !!! — I couldn't ask for a better car ! And it drives and rides extremely comfortably, even for my 6'4" husband! The price was very affordable on our tight budget. I have never loved a car so much, but not as much as my husband.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: It's just a cool car !  

    Cons: Nothing

    Cheap Fun Performace Car But U Can Still Fit The Family In To Go Somewhere — Powerful acceleration, but yet can still cruise. Doest like to turn real well but drives and rides like a dream but with enough room to take the family places. The car itself is fabulous and is a blast to drive.

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

    Pros: Unbelievible performance

    Cons: Alittle stiff, doesnt like to turn to well.

    Gotta Love A Charger — If your gonna get a charger you gotta get the R/T. Any other model just isn't worth it. Especially not with the weight thats already on the car. Other than that the outward appearance is wonderful. She's horrible on gas but luckily the bigger engine doesn't do too much worse than the base model.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great reputation so people respect you on the road

    Cons: Base model is a little too base and still a bit expesive.

    I Would Definitely Consider Buying This As A Manly Family Car — Quick and powerful acceleration. Great highway mileage. Feels sturdy and safe. Amazing vintage design. New interior, with great comfort functions. Extremely fun to drive, comfortable to drive long distances. American cars usually last a while before the need for a fix up

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

    Pros: Powerful, Amercian Muscle

    Cons: Looks like it could run someone over

    I Love My Charger — Very comfortable, love the ipod hook up, comes standard with sirus radio, Standard speakers work nicely, 16 gallon tank takes about $30-35 to fill up and gets pretty good gas milage. Wonderful for new familys and traveling! Loads of space in the trunk and inside. Perfect for a husband/ Father that doesnt want to drive a SUV but still have the room and sport!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: I love everything about it

    Cons: none
