2007 Dodge Charger RT 4dr Sedan AWD (5.7L 8cyl 5A)
Checked out lots of cars and SUVs prior to purchase. The Charger beat all of them hands down. The car looks great, drives like a sports car and rides like a Cadillac. One of the few that offered AWD in my price range and had an excellent rebate as well. I needed something to haul the kids around in that wasn't boring.
AWD, Hemi, Sirius, leather, exhaust note. Base sound system is excellent. Quality of construction, paint, the engine compartment is even cool. Washing the car is easy as well.
Stock tires (everything I've read say they won't last long), Availability (Very few AWD were out there, I had to drive 70 miles for the closest).
