My 2012 Dodge Challenger

"Let me start by saying that this car soooo reminds me of the 1972 340 'Cuda I owned all those decades ago. I get in the car, settle in a very comfortable drivers seat, place my hands on the steering wheel...and the memories come flooding back. Push the start button, shift into Drive, hit the gas, and all of a sudden it hits me...this ISN'T my 72' 340 'Cuda! First of all, this car has the 3.6L V-6 engine, gets 30+ mpg on open-road long distance drives, and delivers 30 more ponies under the hood then the 275 HP rated 340...and yeah, it's noticeable to me! Pull out into traffic, and it immediately becomes obvious...this car doesn't want city traffic, it wants the open road...especially ones with lots of curves! It's then that I realize this isn't my old 340 'Cuda. Those E-Bodies of yesteryear never handled turns like THIS...not even close! So yes...I can give the 2012 3.6L Challenger two thumbs up in the Fun to Drive category. That said, I do have a few reservations. I would have much prefered a more 'retro-look' instrument cluster over the Lunar White one. The center console floor-mount shifter could have taken on a more retro look also. Believe it or not, my '04 Jeep Liberty has exactly what I'm referring to. Having the wipers hidden under the hood cowl would have been a nice touch and given this car a much cleaner look. The push button start is nice and very easy to get used to, but would it have hurt to put a key ignition mounted on the steering column? And lastly...why oh why was the 4.7L V-8 never offered for the Challenger...?!?"

"Every time I walk out to drive somewhere and I see my car there I smile- it's just a good looking car. It's comfortable on long trips and gets decent HWY mileage (28mpg -on a recent road trip from SF to Vegas). It doesn't get the city mileage that was advertized (19city/23hwy) but since the hwy mileage is so much better than I thought it would be I'm okay with the 17mpg I get around town. The interior is quality craftsmanship. It's a solid car- lots of room in the front - huge truck and it's heavy. When I was shopping for a new car I didn't really have it on my radar and just test drove it to rule it out really. It was the test drive that did it -the Dodge Challenger just swept me off my feet. The only thing I wasn't prepared for, which is not at all unique to the car, is the cost of replacing performance tires- ouch!"

"This car is number 715 of 1000 produced in 2014. Has all options available. Navigation, moon roof, heated seats and cold air intake from factory. stitched soft leather interior with monogramed seats. number pate on dash. 6 speed automatic with shifter paddles on steering. 20 inch dodge wheels. special edition shaker graphics decals. exterior is black. which makes this car a rare car since very few are black with the black graphics. very fast but smooth ride. great gas mileage for this breed of car at 23 HI way."

"Near perfect cond. drove first year never in salt sand or snow. Been covered in garage since. Start up and take around block every 2 week. You won't find a 2012 392 6 speed SRT in better shape"

"For the money I think this car is a great value because you can haul 4 people easily, carry a trunkload of luggage,go from 60-100m.p.h. in no time flat and stop even faster. Great retro styling with a well designed interior. Lots of power etc."
