2009 Dodge Charger SXT 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I would NEVER recommend buying a Dodge Charger to anyone. In 3 months we bought 2, and they both had so many mechanical problems the dealer had to buy them back. I did not even own the 2nd one for 2 weeks when the engine blew up and all of the electronics melted. The 1st one has vibration problems that Dodge said was normal. The check engine light was always coming on and it was misfiring in the cylinders. Both of these cars were a complete nightmare. They get great gas mileage because they are always on the back of a tow truck!
The interior was nice and it had a very clean look to it.
The car actually looks like a sports car and all that, but the fact i realized after purchasing this car was, this could be an everyday sedan as well as the car which gives you the grin after you race that kid in the honda or nissan or mustang! Its spacious, load stuff in, go on long trips, go off road (Desert), seriously lets see a mustang or camaro do this. 5.7l V8 is simply crazy and on the freeway the fuel consumption is nothing! You want that car which keeps your wife happy because you look like a family man or that car which will make you happy because it makes you wanna go dukes of hazard? Well buddy its the DODGE Charger R/T!
The front evil smile face, the back spoiler, the 20 inch rims, the leather R/T seats, the huge tires, the sound of the engine, the DVD Nav, Uconnect, space, the wheel with controls, the feeling of owning one and burning the asphalt off the road!
I thinking about what to write here but i can't come up with anything. Maybe more interior colors selection?? but shes perfect the way she is!
I bought this car not even 2 weeks ago and I'm already having A LOT of problems with it. I noticed the control arm on the car was busted the very same day I got it home and Dodge refused to cover the damages! I love the car, its been my dream car for a very long time but I am furious with how Dodge handles these problems. I am crazy about the car, but I would never again buy a Dodge.
everything about it pretty much
dodge needs to step up and take care of what they need to take care of.
This is IT, man! If you want a big, burly, unapologetic All-American car (yeah I know it was built in Canada, but still) that shoots a middle finger to any sort of political or social correctness, this is your car. With its lowered stance, wide tires, deep front air dam and raised rear spoiler, it has the looks that strike fear in small children - yet can still fit 4 adults comfortably (5 if you squeeze) with all their luggage and a soft enough ride for a nice long road trip. Try that in a Camaro or a Mustang - it ain't happenin'!
The 6.1 L Hemi with its bellowing dual exhausts - when all its 425 horses are summoned to duty, releases a sound that is absolutely intoxicating. And you'd better know exactly where you're going when doing so, because you're gonna get there VERY quickly. The MyGig option is highly recommended.
Wish gas MPG could be better, but it's just the nature of the beast, and it's not unreasonable considering the performance. Brake dust from the Brembos get a little annoying at times. And Dodge, expand the color selections in the SRT line. Only 4-5 colors to choose from is unacceptable.
Shopped for weeks and test drove a lot of different models. My wife loves the way it drives, the seat comfort and seating position. We feel it was by far the best value for the dollar. Currently we get 24 to 27 MPG on the highway, with the RT hemi V8. Don't believe everything the "Biased" Toyota/Honda Consumer reports Mag. says. These are good cars. I had 95,000 trouble free miles on a 2001 300M that was a well designed sport sedan and joy to drive as well.
Powerful efficient engine. Excellent seats. lots of standard features.Power pedals, telescoping steering wheel, 8 way passenger heated seat, fold down rear seat. Driver controls are well placed. Solid feel. Lot's of interior room.
Lot's of plastic on the interior. Would look much more upscale with some wood accents etc. Should have another clock, maybe in the overhead console. Digital clock in the radio is too small. Make memory seats and mirrors an option. Six speed transmission for even better MPG. std. day/night mirror
