    Fast — the car is fast and also reliable, gas is ok and the best thing on this car is the look, catches a lot of people attention, I had this car for 1 year and is being excellent , the only down side is the back seat and the space in the back, not comfortable at all.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: powerfull, nice look

    Cons: back seat very small

    Awesome Car!! — This car rides smooth. Just had the cold air intake put on. It is always in the garage and was stored over the winter. Oil change was just done 1 month ago. Love the sunroof!! The speed is very cool!!

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

    Pros: Great sports car. Nice speed.

    Cons: There is really no room for someone in the back seat and it takes premium fuel.

    The Muscle Car I Wanted When I Was A Kid, But Was To Young To Drive! — This car has drop dead looks, even while it is parked. Everyone has a Camero or a Mustang, just start counting , and see how many Challengers are out there everyday! This car is great for weekend driving, hard driving, or just cruisin around, but it is not a daily driver. The Only reason that I say that, is because of the gas milage, and the fact that I want to keep the miles off of my car.

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

    Pros: Looks, power, interior room

    Cons: Massive blind spot in a-pillar

    A Great Tribute To The Muscle Cars Of The 70's —

    The Dodge Challenger is a great tribute to the muscle cars of the 70's. True, it's a bit on the heavy side, but the snarling Hemi under the hood puts all that into proper perspective with a press of the gas pedal and the lift of the clutch. The Challenger is more roomy than the Mustang or the Camaro and while not as nimble in some respects, makes up for it as a great cruising machine, and can be driven long distances in comfort, in the well appointed leather interior, with steering wheel mounted audio and phone controls, cruise control, and choices in display for the readouts in the Electronic Vehicle Information Center, even including a 0-60 time for those wondering just how fast this beast really is. The ride is crisp but not overly rough. It won't remind you of a luxury car in any case, but won't rattle your fillings out either. Solid on any terrain with little axle tramp or wander. I prefer the 6 speed over the automatic, as I prefer to row my opwn boat. Also, the exhaust on a stock R/T has a much better sound on the stick than the automatic, a throaty growl that just can't be ignored. Plus, the sutomatic comes standard with the MDS multi cylinder displacement system where 4 cylinders are cut out at cruising to save fuel. Great for the EPA and very bad on timing chains acording to the Challenger forums where many failures have been reported. The manual transmission cars do not have the MDS system and suffer a mile or two in fuel mileage on the highway, but the longevity in engine reliability sure makes up for that in my book. One downside of the stick vs auto is the auto uses regular grade fuel, the stick uses premium, so there is another trade-off at about twenty cents a gallon if cost is to be a significant factor in your choice of transmissions. The R/T Classic includes many upgrades including power drivers seat, HID headlights, stripes, 20 inch Envy Alloy wheels, and with the Super Track Pack option, you get Goodyear Supercar F1 performance tires as well. The navigation system is by Garmin and the stereo options are good. I opted for the 430N package with Sound Package II and the Nav package and find it to be very good. Not audiophile by any means, but very good for the listening I do. The trunk is voluminous, and the fold down rear seats are a big plus for skiers or others needing extra space. Avery versatile car for the small family, or, in our case, a nostalgic trip to the past for the two of us cruising the Pacific Coast Highway and Route 66.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Retro look, turns heads, fast, roomy, comfortable

    Cons: Poor gas mileage, blind spots, no rear camera or perimeter collision avoidance system offered in 2012

    Cclassic Muscle — I love my new car.. The rt has plenty of power and I didn't think the srt8 was worth the extra twenty grand. I get complements every day. Of you don't want attention then don't get this car. It is the most fun I've ever had on a car. You only have to change the oil every 8000 miles lol.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: S tylish and lots of torque

    Cons: NNone so far

    Srt8 392 — I bought a Challenger SRT8 392 on a whim. Having never test driving or even looked at buying one since the 2008 model was introduced, but I knew I had to have the 392. First impression is AWESOME!! The power is insane and, to my surprise, the car handles really well. I went through a set of rear tires pretty quick. This car is super fun to drive.

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

    Pros: Fast and Fun

    Cons: Alway cleaning the car

    I Love This Car, Lots Of Eye Ball And Not A Lot O F Them On The Road. — I love the sound of her when she's screaming at ya. Looks great, I catch people starring at her all the time!! It is the best throwback car made. Looks classic but has all the upgrades inside. If you love the classic american muscle but want all of the new toys, get one of these before they go away. You won't regret it!

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

    Pros: If you like Muscle, you will love this car!

    Cons: She loves gas!
