2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 SRT8 392 2dr Coupe (6.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

05/12/13: Traded a 2012 Hyundai Gen Coupe, which definitely was not my cup of tea, for this. In comparison, the Challenger is a huge car, but pleasantly so. Needless, to say, the 392 is a torque monster, which puts a constant smile on my face, and the Yellowjacket paint is a real head turner. Gonna flush and fill all the lubes with Amsoil synthetics this week at about 300 miles or so to protect the investment. I'll review reliability at the end of summer. In the meantime, gonna have one fun summer getting to know this BEAST of a car.


Best Features

392 Hemi and 6 spd Manual Trans. Torque, torque, torque(!) and AWESOME exhaust note! Seats are firm and supportive, and Harmon Kardon stereo is as big as the motor. THIS is the car that every red-blooded American boy wanted back in the day. Interior, in general, is executed well and the instrument cluster is BY FAR the best of all the American retro muscle cars. Tires and wheels also stand out in a crowd.


Worst Features

None yet. I suppose the Challenger could stand to lose some weight/size, but I'm not so sure that wouldn't detract from the whole experience. Personally, I like it just fine the way it is and so does everyone I know who's ridden in it.

Review

I purchased this superb 470 hp Super car for my son as an early graduation gift. This car has incredible acceleration, braking and handling, far beyond anything I have ever driven at twice it's price. This car in Metalic Blue Streak with Factory Silver-White stripes is beyond gorgeous and turns heads wherever it goes. I bought it fully loaded with Dodge's highest end GPS. Strangely enough it does not have a backup camera and you can not purchase one form Dodge or Mopar even if you wanted to. I called Dodge to find out what the logic for this was. They could not explain the logic or lack thereof. Otherwise My Son Loves His SRT-8


Best Features

Great handling, great breaking, incredible looks and lots and lots of horsepower.


Worst Features

Offer a backup camera option for the SRT-8

Review

I have had my 392 Challenger for a year. I love this car. I wanted a Reline Red fully optioned 392 challenger so I tried to order it. To my dismay, the reline red paint was unavailable because of the tsunami in japan had made this color (and others) impossible to get. The local dealer found a redline red one and optioned it as per my request. It is an every box checked, challenger, except for a sunroof. I didnít want a sunroof (it breaks up the stripe)2011 Challenger 392. It came with black stripes. I had the dealer remove the black stripes and I had the exact same stripes put back on but in white. This changes the entire look of the car. The word I hear most is STUNNING. I will admit, It is


Best Features

I love everything about the car


Worst Features

More house power
