2009 Dodge Challenger R/T: Eardrum Thumper
May 12, 2009
My first reaction after firing up the Challenger is to lower the windows. Its 5.7-liter HEMI rumbles like a V8 should and I want to hear it. But only until the speedo hits 45 mph.
Beyond 45 mph wind starts to reverberate in the cabin and pound the eardrums. We've all experienced this before. Crack another window or the sunroof and the beating stops. We can't do that in our sunroofless Challenger. Our only options are to tough it out or roll 'em up.
This thing needs wind wings.
