Pros: "Fast, roomy, a looker, great highway gas mileage!"
Cons: "Wish it was louder. Sounds too docile for me."
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"I bought this car in 2007 with 11,900 miles on it. It now is about ready to crack 175,000, and I'm supremely satisfied. The original brakes lasted to 145,000 miles. Even then, they didn't NEED to be replaced, I chose to replace them. The car has had the oil changed between 5 and 7,000 miles, other than that, it has had very little maintenance required, still has the original serpentine belt and plugs! Other than oil changes and front end (tie rod, tie rod ends) replacement - which is due more to rough American roads than it is poor design quality, this car is never in the shop. I can't wait to buy another one!"
"I bought this car because of its styling. However, its styling does not make up for the great expense of maintenance so I can keep it on the road. I pay to fix the same problems over and over again. I put in a new engine, new water pump, new pins in the front end. Tie rod gave out while driving."
"I love my Charger, regardless of some mechanical issues. Front end is notoriously weak in this car; be prepared to put some $$ into it. Beautiful car, comfortable ride and a pleasure to drive. Gas mileage with the hemi less than desirable 22mpg on the highway....about 15mpg around town :( but love the power and purr of engine. I will never forget the first time I got pulled over for speeding. The state trooper leaned into the car to check it out and said, "hey, does this have a hemi?" Luckily I got off with just warning. Other issues? Lug nuts for this car are garbage; I've replaced them 4 times. Drives fine in the snow but this heavy car does not stop on a dime on a slick road."
"I brought this car about 4years ago. At first I was in love with the car until I notice how much oil it consumes. Engine ticks when first started the dealers says that normal. So overall it's good looking and that's about it."
"My car has the sport handling package and the 3.5L V6. It's a great combination. The sport handling package allows you to charge corners without over-driving them. 10 MPH over the recommended corner speed does NOT induce panic by passengers. The V6 is peppy and eager to run hard while sipping gas. The only downside: mid-grade gas is recommended by Dodge and makes a dramatic difference in mileage if you use regular. It has a roomy interior, almost too big for a 5' 8" 200 lb driver."
