    Amazing Car. — Performance. Braking: the brake requires a little pressure but it responds very well. Handling: the handling is a bit left to be desired but once you get used to the way it turns and the size of the car it really isn't too bad. Acceleration: Amazing especially if you're using the autostick function 0 to 60 in 5.1 sec. Build Quality: SOLID ALL AMERICAN MUSCLE built like a brick house, wouldn't have it any other way. Appearance: Sexy as hell, I love how mean it looks.

    Pros: Looks meaner than all hell.
    Solid build.
    Great acceleration

    Cons: Fair handling.
    It's a big car so it takes some time to get used to.

    Great Ride. — I love everything about it, except that i went with the 3.5. Would recommend to anyone, unless you want speed, then the R/T, Daytona, SRT, or Super Bee models would be a better choice.

    Pros: Everything, styling, handling, you name it, i love it.

    Cons: Gas mileage isnt as good as i thought it would be, 3.5 is sluggish off the line, and lags when it shifts. 5-speed autostick should have stayed in 2008

    Roll On 2008 Charger Srt8 Superbee — Smoothe as silk when driven in a normal fashion, trying to keep it NORMAL that is a problem, once you push this car its hard not to push it over and over. It is a heavyweight Monster that digs going fast, and hopefully the occupants in the car are not screaming for you to slow down, I think thats why Dodge put in that Loud Stereo System to tune them out, better to go drive alone .

    Miles Driven per Year:4,000

    Pros: Cool car for the $$$$

    Cons: Needs Wider Skins On Rear

    Raw Power With Attitude And White Knuckles On The Steering Wheel Keeping Her In Line. — I have had the car for 102000 miles at this point.. Car has been good. No real issues to speak of just general maintenance items. Car gets about 17 miles to the gallon if your nice... 14 if you have fun... and 19 on the Highway... I don't like MDS so I have it disabled. I have gotten as much as 24 on the highway with it working but just can't handle the sound it produces a low growl of 4 cylinder it also causes the car to pulse as it turns on and off when needed... just not worth it to me. If you are going to drive this kind of car and change the exhaust MDS is not an option... This is a straight line machine the curves is just all under steer.. like crazy! It will just push it self into a corner you have to do alot of breaking while turning to change weight to the front tires and then give gas to get out of it... Fun to toss around once you get the hang of it... A trick for all Chargers 07-09 I think while car is moving above 5 miles an hour just turn the key fob and hold.. .your traction control light will turn on and it will disable all traction control.... ALL TRACTION CONTROL... then you can have some real fun!

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

    Pros: Been a great car overall.. Lots of fun to drive.. Power when you need and nice ride!

    Cons: A gas pig for sure... but what do you expect in this big car with a big motor and big right foot!

    The Modern Muscle That Family Men Need — As stated above, the HEMI power is just smile inducing. The comfort that this car exudes on the roads, whether it be light to light or open highway is amazing. The gadgetry in the cockpit leaves you feeling like James Bond as you cycle radio stations with either the steering wheel controls or the MyGIG touch screen. The heated seats shake off the bitter cold in the winters and the sunroof lets you bask in those sunny summer days. This car turns heads at the grocery stores or whatever other family duties you may encounter, but lets you chuckle when you slam the accelerator and feel the car jump up and go. I have few gripes with this vehicle. Mainly the heaviness and bodyroll, but any visit to performance shop can cure those ailments!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The car is aggressive looking and has the power to back it all up! The perfect vehicle for the family man who itches for that muscle car feel. From the HEMI powerplant generating an undeniable thirst for the highway to the solidity of the suspension to keep the car handling like a sports car, this vehicle has had me grinning at every light!

    Cons: The car is pretty heavy and requires a good deal of that HEMI power to get it moving. I couldn't imagine the V6 get up and go. The body roll is always there, so the power to the wheels sometimes fades when you have to make that upcoming turn.

    Been A Great Car For The Price! — overall happy with vehicle! I am starting to have small problems with the vehicle after 95,000 miles and four years old. Even if it only last me another two years I will have gotten my money out of the car and it didn't break me in the car payment.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Looks GREAT!!!

    Cons: starting to get a lot of ratteling in the cab.
