Loved this car from the day I drove it home. One owner black beauty only mod was a K&N drop in filter and I added a Borla exhaust system. Hella fast and fun to drive. Well maintained and garage kept, used as a Livery sedan and purchased with about 93k miles. Replaced front strut assemblies and wheel bearings (pricey). Car is nose heavy by design. All went well without any issues until cruising in the fast lane at about 70mph Engine lost power without warning, barely made it off of freeway and car had died at the offramp. Stranded with clients in car 85 miles from home! Broken valve spring, bent valve and pushrod, Had heads redone and with tow bill about a $2500 breakdown. Sold it
I have the 2006 black SRT-8 with dark tint and chrome exterior aftermarket parts everywhere, and it looks incredible. I can't drive it without attracting looks and questions. I have installed the jet stage one module and a K&N cold air induction and let me tell you this makes a world of difference. I traded a 2001 trans am WS6 on the SRT and haven't regretted it for a second. The SRT is quicker and faster and looks and drives better and I can take my family along for the fun.
