2012 Dodge Challenger Coupe SXT 2dr Coupe (3.6L 6cyl 5A)


Review

First of all, this car looks great. In addition to the retro Challenger form factor, the Rallye Redline gets center red stripes, "black chrome" 20 inch wheels with red inserts, and in my car, a "radar red" leather interior. Set off against the pitch black paint, this combination is a stunner, and I get compliments wherever I go, usually "nice car," thumbs up or fist pumps. The rallye redline also adds hood scoops, fog lamps, rear spoiler and dual chrome exhausts. Performance wise, the car has 300 hp and is never found lacking in any real driving situation. It's quick, but it's not a car for racing. The handling is better than most people say, the lighter V6 engine gives the car a better balance. Comfort is superb, especially the front seats, the best I've ever had; the back seats are comfortable compared to those in the Mustang /Camaro. The ride is super smooth, this car was built on a Daimler chassis. The controls are logical, user friendly and have appropriate retro styling.. Uconnect system (bluetooth, navigation) is excellent, Sound system (Alpine) is very good. Trunk is huge. I have had this car for six years it has 40 k miles and have done nothing but change the oil and the tires. One minor cruise control repair was covered under the warranty. I do not drive it in the winter, which is five months of the year, as I live near Buffalo NY and a front engine rear wheel drive car would not do well in the snow. Negatives? Rear visibility is poor and access to the back seat can be tricky.

Review

Had a 2013 Mustang 5.0 GT California Special. White with black trim and decals. Awesome LOOKING car!!!! Great engine! Everything else was a [non-permissible content removed]!! Leather seats ripping with gentle use under 40000. Cheap, toyish quality interior and VERY uncomfortable seats !!!! Paint chipping by LOOKING at it!!! 2012 Challenger quality is twice as good, comfortable high quality seats, equally excellent engine, roomy, handles well, little road noise and good ride (not stiff like the Pony)!! LOVE my midnight Blue Challenger and, as great as it looked, don't miss the Mustang !!!!

2012 Dodge Challenger Coupe R/T 2dr Coupe (5.7L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Fun car to drive... comfortable, quiet interior.... excellent instrumentation.... super acceleration.... easy to drive and control.... gas mileage not so hot.... but if I wanted good gas mileage I would have bought a Prius. This is a very well built and reliable car that has plenty of horsepower and zip... I love my Challenger!

Review

As far as 'bang for the buck' it is tough to find a better value than the 5.7 Hemi R/T with 6 speed manual. I think the 5.7 allows you to actually enjoy the car on public roads without feeling like you are running up miles on a potential classic (if you had the 392 or higher models). I did the Mopar cold air intake and the resonator delete and probably picked up 15 hp. So, yes the car is heavy but it makes for great highway stability and comfort. It is spacious inside - so you don't feel so claustrophobic as with some other cars. I got the silver with the black diagonal R/T stripes on the front fender/hood and added some Ace Alloy after market wheels with a staggered tire set up (slightly wider in the rear). It really turns head and sounds great. I had a 1972 Challenger which was awesome, but this one is years ahead in user friendliness and faster.
