2007 Dodge Charger SRT8: Clears 80,000 Miles Under Our Watch
by Brent Romans, Senior Automotive Editor on May 20, 2016
"You never actually own a Patek Philippe. You merely look after it for the next generation." That's the ad tagline for the Swiss luxury watchmaker. But it's also how I feel about our 2007 Dodge Charger SRT8. We bought it with 66,350 miles and we've been looking after it through 80,000 miles. And in the next month or two, we'll be passing it off for somebody else to enjoy.
True, our Charger SRT8 has not been a perfect timepiece recently. Click on our Maintenance section and you'll see the reports about the transmission/transmission shifter and the dead car battery and key battery. But with a used vehicle with 80,000 miles, you have to expect that some things are going to start to go wrong. From an ownership standpoint, none of this would have bothered me too much if it were my car.
I'm hopeful our Charger will continue to provide classic, big V8 sedan enjoyment for another 80,000 miles.
