"If you drive this car like a normal human being on good roads, I'm sure it would be just fine, maybe even 9 or 10 out of 10 material. I'm a 19 year old kid that drives my car harder than I should and I drive on country roads often. I have a lead foot and this car is fun, but not thrilling. The power leaves more to be desired, although it will sound good with an aftermarket exhaust (I have a magnaflow cat back dual exhaust setup with chrome tips). I'm not sure if it's the mediocre roads I drive on regularly or the way I drive or just dodge / the car itself, but the front end on my car is absolute garbage. Replaced ball joints when purchased it for a pretty $1100 (dual ball joints both sides isn't cheap), and in the 25,000 miles I've had it, I've replaced three tie rods, a steering shaft, sway bar linkages, and brakes. The car drives oddly loose when everything is new and working well, and drives as if the suspension is pretty stiff because you rattle through every little bump in the road. Maybe the people that had it before me drove it roughly, but between three different mechanics I've worked with for different things, they all say everything checks out fine. The engine, I will say, is bulletproof. I don't hold anything back, and the charger just takes it and goes. Again, power is a little lackluster, but you can count on this car to get you there."
