"What's not to love about this retro muscle Car.? Hemi orange with plenty of power. I purchased it loaded and glad I did. Quite a head turner. I plan on keeping her for quite some time. I did purchase the bumper to bumper life time warranty, just in case."
Cons: "Manual trans (shifting/long throws) door pockets,"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"I traded in my 2010 Subaru Legacy 3.6R for my 2011 Challenger in October, 2013, buying it certified used with 7,100 miles on it. A few minor light scratches, other than that the car looked and drove as new. Plenty of room inside up front. You need to slide your seats up a bit if you like your rear seat passengers, but it's really best for two up front. An R/T Plus, it's optioned well, very comfortable, quiet and sure footed on every road type. The Super track Pak makes for a firm ride, but for me, not objectionably so. For a car that is large, it handles quite nimbly on mountain roads at imprudent speeds. The acceleration for the 5.7L is very robust, and I routinely get 24-28mpg on the highway. Of course, I don't put my foot through the firewall much. The 6 speed Tremec transmission may be a weak point on my Challenger. I recently am finding shifting sporadically difficult, mostly when warm, and only about 15% of the time. But I find that annoying. Dealer visit has not yet yielded a fix. The only other problem was with the airbag warning light, which began staying on. It was found that a wire connector under the passenger seat was faulty. It took the dealer three times to fix it. I'll find out the quality of the repair first time into a pole. The sound system is great, HVAC auto temp works great, heated seats, etc., all wonderful. Seat leather is a quality product, and the seats, with power driver's lumbar, are an absolute dream on long trips, Wide door makes getting in and out a breeze. And the look. Well, I literally can't back out of my garage without people noticing, and often responding positively.
I came up when the original muscle cars were roaming the streets. I was a disciple of Chrysler/Plymouth/Dodge, owned several, drove several more. They were, and are fun. But this car, "fugedaboudit", is light years ahead. I love this car, and I'll keep it as long as I'm on the right side of the flowers!"
