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


I bought my B5 blue SRT8 in October, 2010 with a 6-speed manual. I have loved putting each and every mile on it since. The transmission shifts are crisp, the engine pulls like a freight train, and what a glorious sound track. The interior is comfortable and practical but no styling frills here. The well bolstered buckets are comfortable on the longest of trips, and even heated for those cold mornings. The back seat is for children or small adults, but nonetheless comfortable. The trunk offers ample space, with a 60/40 rear seat split. If you buy this car, prepare for attention. Even still, I get people craning their necks to have a look. After 2 years, I still wouldn't trade it for anything.

Best Features

Thunderous 6.1 V-8, NASA quality 6-speed transmission, Great Brembo brakes, handles very well for a big car, comfortable, awesome stereo

Worst Features

Dump the terrible 1-4 skip shift, stability control system is too intrusive, an in between setting would be nice, no quick release for driver's seat
