2006 Dodge Charger RT 4dr Sedan (5.7L 8cyl 5A)
My first brand new car in Oct 2006. Car was still in bubble wrap ect. Car has been so so on the reliability scale. The second day I had it the radio knobs fell off. At 32k the coolant reserve tank failed at least it was parked when that happened. The car is not driven much only on short trips. The car drives excellent ect. But the reliability isnt great. I am a 40 yr old and dont hot rod this car like a18yr old. This is where the kicker comes in. At 46k the motor failed... would not start. Towed to Dodge and found it dropped a valve seat and damaged the whole motor. Dodge said it was a common problem. I was lucky got the 4k warranty from dealer didn't pay anything for repair. TRADING IT IN!!
Power, handling, Looks,
Needs better Safety Features, Horrible Gas Millage, Needs more options, Bad Reliability for only a DEALER SERVICED CAR, Cheap interior dodge replaced seat at 28k when the seams came out. Should have bought the Lexus at least I would have saved some with trade in value.
