2006 Dodge Charger Sedan RT 4dr Sedan (5.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Front brake rotors have been replaced 4 times - Had to go w/ after mkt vented/slotted/drilled rotor. Motor mount replaced, some front suspension parts replaced, and car eats tires. Ride, power, performance, and comfort are excellent. Interior plastics are not highest grade. Sound system, Nav, and Bluetooth are trouble free and work great. Paint is holding up beautifully. Overall - a nice car w/some quirks,great engine performance, expensive to maintain, very high fun-to-drive factor.


Favorite Features

Engine, looks, sound system, roomy comfort, huge trunk.


Suggested Improvements

Interior plastics need to be higher grade.

2006 Dodge Charger Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The car is nice to drive, but has had numerous service issues. From day 1, there was a front tire thumping/noise issue that was never resolved even after 6 visits to 3 different dealerships. They never found anything. At 31,000 miles, a front tire blowout caused from excessive wear. Replaced all 4 tires with Coopers. After only 17,000 miles on these, they are showing the same wear patterns. Now, the front tie rods and control arms need replacing at a cost of $970! This car costs too much in maintenance to keep.


Favorite Features

Looks nice, lots of room for the driver.


Suggested Improvements

Fix the front-end issues, both tires and tie rods.

Review

Well it is a nice car to drive but has spent a lot of time with issues. for example three times the Bluetooth had to be fixed still not working, tires have to be replaced every year, engine light on continually even after it has been fixed the light shines again within a couple of days, lighting bolt light that tells you to heat the car up when the temp outside is below a certain degree comes on in the middle of the summer when it is 25 celcius outside and if you do not let it warm up the car will not run properly (near got in an accident a few times the engine cuts out- no power) we have had this looked at but it continues to be an issue now the tie rod ends are gone again. We got a bad one.


Favorite Features

The look of the car and nice to drive when in good working condition.


Suggested Improvements

Engine light, better tires from the get go, fix the computer issues

2006 Dodge Charger Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I love this car and it is a pleasure to drive it until it shreds my tires because of front end vibration which cannot or will not be repaired by the dealership. Tires have had to be replaced 3 times in 40,000 miles because of this recurring issue. Looking for other owners with same problem for possible resolution with manufacturer.


Favorite Features

Love my sunroof and heated leather seats. Love the body style and the aggressive look of the car.


Suggested Improvements

Fix the tire-eating problem, recall them because of tie rod problem and transmission leak issue.

Review

I bought this car used with 40000 miles on it. I have only had one problem with it and that was replacing the inner tie rods($470), I was told that this is a very common repair for these vehicles. Overall, I love driving this car and I would recommend it to anyone. If you buy this car, expect expensive repairs. I recommend extended warenty.


Favorite Features

The look and feel of this car makes it worth every dime.


Suggested Improvements

Get better, high quality upholstery.
