My R/t Challenger — i have the r/t, which has great power, it handles very well for such a big car. trunk space is excellent. leather interior is very nice. all in all, a very fun car to drive! i would definitely recommend this car, especially if you're sick of seeing camaro's and mustangs everywhere!

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

Decent Car For Its Size — It had plenty of power and agility for the large car that it is, and would satisfy some ones need for power with the 6.1L HEMIs. The car wouldn't be a well suited road coarse car and would make a better straight line car. I wasn't able to take the car to its limits but from the driving that was done this car just doesn't have the feel of a car you can put in to hard G cornering and feel as comfortable with as you would with a smaller coupe.

Pros: Ample amount of power at your disposal, sounds great with headers and exhaust.  The interior is spacious for the driver and passenger.  The exterior styling is beautiful and fits well with Dodge's attempt to bring the past back.  The performance matches the size of the car.

Cons: Has the feel of of the large car that it is.  The rear seats are not very spacious.  There are a few blind spots toward the rear of the car.  The interior is simple, and it is styled very close to the Charger.

Powerful And Intimidating — The car has met or exceeded all of my expectations. It is stunningly beautiful, amazingly powerful and rides like a dream! I was not expecting its comfort and handling ability. The retro style is a definitely turns heads! You can easily accelerate past 80mph without realizing it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Amazing handling, powerful acceleration

Cons: none

Don't Think About It Just Buy It. — Great car handles very well plenty of power and when driving on the highway still gets 22mpg. Although the build quality isn't perfect in this day you cant expect perect. The car is an amazing car to drive and i love to take it out on cruises.

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

Pros: I like the look of the car and how they did such a good job making it look classic.

Cons: I like everything about this car.

An Honor To Have Owned And Will Own Again Someday. — This car has a commanding presence. You can't imagine how many times I was complimented on it while driving around the city. I'm not a handsome man so I knew it was the car. Just over a month ago, my little girl was born. A decision was made and now I have to say goodbye to my precious muscle car. It is in every sense of the phrase a muscle car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Best of the 16 cars I've owned.  Best looking of all the "retro" cars.  Traction control with Blizzaks made for excellent winter travel, excellent cruising on the highway, and excellent excelleration in city.  She corners great and is fun to maintain.  Her mpg is incredible given the amount of power she has.  Excellent paint on this car year.

Cons: Engine defect in both heads.  Completely R&R'd under warranty.  This model year did not have the quick release drivers seat for back seat access.  Back window hard to clean due to design.

Perfection... True... Perfection... — I am simply in love with him. I acquired him, brand new... and he's been simply lovely. He's never let me down... I realize many people have a rather awful image of Dodge yet I will tell you its entirely unfounded. He is perfect. Truly. Gas Mileage is not meant to be good in the Challenger... I cannot complain because it is well compensated for in power... though I find my '66 Impala to be far more fun... my dear Challenger is my... reliable... and practical vehicle... and he even has heating and air conditioning!

Pros: Appearance, Performance, Quality, Reliability, sheer and utter beaty from any angle...

Cons: I will never... have suede seats... again.

It's Awesome — Performance: Great acceleration and handing. Top speed I've reached is 187 mph Appearance: I think that the every new Dodge looks amazing so does this baby Cost of Ownership: For me it's a little expensive because of everything I did with it. I buy new tires every month for this car and it swallows a lot of gas too. Fun Factor: It's really fun. I love the smell of burning rubber and asphalt in the morning and the adrenaline. If someone can afford himself with a car like this, try the stuff I did

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

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing

The Best Damn Car Period!!! — Challengers rule! Love the retro-style and the 'rock star' looks I get when I drive my Challenger. Incredible car for the money and if you still have a pulse, this car is for you! Test drive one and feel like a kid again!

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

Pros: Awesome styling, fantastic all around performance, and a blast to own!

Cons: If you don't like this car, you must drive a Toyota!

2009 Dodge Challenger R/t. A New Piece Of History! — Love it!! The stock suspension was a little too soft for my taste, so I installed Mopar's stage I coilover kit. Handles a lot better with No body roll. Other than that, It's perfect. Fast & Flashy, Highly recomended! Me Likey!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great All Around!

Cons: Nothing!
