Still good as new

2006 Dodge Charger RT 4dr Sedan (5.7L 8cyl 5A)
This car has help up extremely well, the paint is the only thing I take issue with as there is some light fading only. Interior has help up very well, leather still in great shape. Performance is as strong as it was when new, brakes still strong with the original pads!!! Gas mileage varies with how hard you hit the HEMI, set the cruise at 70 and get 26.5 mpg, set it at 60 and get between 30-31 mpg! The best part is while getting those mpg #'s it will still hit 60 in under 6 seconds, I think the only car I would replace this with would be the Challenger R/T or SRT- 8 or another Charger R/T or SRT-8. They all run as good as they look, plus they can carry 4 or 5 people in comfort and style.
HEMI power, looks, the upgraded Boston Acoustics stereo is awesome, room everywhere plus a huge trunk.
trans fluid, power steering fluid and spark plugs need to be changed every 30k miles, need longer intervals between required maintenance service.
I see people wanting a recall on wearable items. Tie rod ends normally wear out around 40000 miles that is why warranty runs out at 36000. Its a game of numbers people. if your shocks or struts need replacing most are recommended to be replaced between 30-60000 miles. They are in no way even needed to be recommended for a recall you the owner are responsible for checking your vehicle over and replacing parts as needed. If you dont want to pay for expensive parts dont buy expensive cars. Second buy extended warranty. People why do you want longer intervalls on changing fluids in srt-8's you are buying a race car at minimum that cost losts of money. they are alot harder on the life of there fluids. You as an automotive enthusiast must relize and desire the fact that you need to maintenace your car.
