2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8 2dr Coupe (6.1L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I have owned BMW, Lexus and Infiniti before buying my SRT8. Yes, I do miss the superior service department experience that comes with a luxury car. However, this car is something to marvel at. I believe it is money well spent. The performance, power and control is pretty impressive. I love the interior design and room provided to the driver and passenger.


Best Features

Power, MyGIG, SIRIUS subscription, and suede and leather seats. Exterior styling is GREAT!!


Worst Features

Full size spare and more cup holders.

2009 Dodge Challenger R/T 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Very nice! Drives great! Definitely turns heads. My opinion the black is the best looking of them all.


Best Features

HEMI! ( If we leave it to Obama..will all be driving 4 cylinders!) Body style! Color! Great cruise car.


Worst Features

Hood held up by a rod!(Cheesey) No Sound!..supposed to be a muscle car! Cheesey tail pipes!(Needs Magna Flow/stainless dual exhaust pipes) I don't like the painted rubber pieces on top of roof (Already had one replaced due to cracking). Leave them black rubber like the charger. Over priced!

2009 Dodge Challenger SE 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Bought this car in late Feb 09, have put roughly 8600 miles (Aug 09) on it since then and am still very pleased with my choice. For reference I replaced a 99 Malibu. Exterior is amazing, still draws comments and gawking stares, corners extremely well for its size. Interior is a lil uninspired, strongly recommend the sunroof to avoid a cave- like feeling. Very comfortable though and plenty of room in the back seat and trunk. 0-60 seems a lil lacking, but 60-80 is near instantaneous. Putting an exhaust on it soon, a lil quiet for a sports car. Engine bay is large, plenty of mod space. very reliable, NO mechanical issues to date. Gas mileage is about 23mpg combined highway/city. Love this car.


Best Features

Sexy exterior looks Corners very sharply Smooth shifting transmission Comfortable seating Plenty of interior room Big trunk Good gas mileage Can turn off electronic stability


Worst Features

Make anti-lock brakes standard Redesign the interior Ramp up the V6's horsepower a bit Driver-side access to rear seat

2009 Dodge Challenger R/T 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I bought an '09 R/T Challenger in February. The ignition module failed after 4500 miles. The car sat at the dealership for almost 2 weeks while they kept telling me that they could not find the parts. Finally they fixed it. When I got it back, it was scratched and the interior was filthy (of course this was the dealership's fault that I took to). Also on 4 occasions prior to the ignition failing, the vehicle was hard to start - it acted like the battery was low. The cruise control resume did not work smoothly (you could hit the resume button at about 60 mph and it would jerk it's way back to 70). Anyway I traded it for a new GT Mustang last week. Too many heartaches.


Worst Features

Fix the electrical system.
