One Fantastic Muscle Car.. — It gets the compliments, the looks to say nothing of it's 470 HP 392 Hemi powerplant. This car is a beast at times but then very docile when driving in town. Depends on how much gas is applied. The brakes are awesome also.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The power and handling is just awesome.

Cons: back seat has no room for adults..unless you move the driver and passenger seats up.

'darth' Is Sooo Bad. — The best car I've ever owned. I have had a 2007 Dodge Magnum R/T, a 2010 Chrysler 300S and a 2011 Chrysler 300C...and it far exceeds the pleasure and power of all other cars I've owned. That's it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fast and a fun car to drive

Cons: none that I can think of.

Overall Satisfaction — The yellow jacket theme was introduced in '70, reintroduced in 2012 as a limited-edition to mild excitement. The fervor seems to have increased as the word has gotten out about the styling, handling, looks of this reinvented challenger. I'm a fan until the end!!!!!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Power, looks, comfort, trunk space, stereo

Cons: Rear seat room

Muscle — This car is a true muscle sports car that has the look and performance! Fuel economy was average for this 8 cylinder sports car and maintenance costs were fairly inexpensive. A new set of tires will put you back about 1000.00. The car handles the highway well and was comfortable for 2 on our trips to Dallas, Texas from the Houston area. Challenger is a keeper and hated to sell my dream car due to a new house purchase.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The Challenger RT Plus has a mean, muscle car look!  It handled well and has plenty of power when you need to accelerate.

Cons: Really built for 1-2 people, but can squeeze a smaller person in back seat.

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

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
