2008 Dodge Charger SXT 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is my first experience with American cars, so far despite what I had heard before I'm pleasantly surprised. Charger is at the front and back, very quite engine, smooth transmission and extremely good on gas for a heavy muscle car. Interior has average quality, lots of plastic everywhere you look...One of the biggest problems I have wit this car is the stability, poor is the only word I can think of. There was some vibrating of the engine which is still there and some sort of strange problem wit tranny which i have been told all of them have (it kind of unsmooth at the beginning of movement). Over all if you can find it for a cheap price, I would definitely say go for it.


Best Features

Roominess, very quiet, fuel efficiency, smooth tranny


Worst Features

better quality, more stability, more luxury or up to date indicator

2008 Dodge Charger RT 4dr Sedan (5.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I bought my Charger as my retirement present to myself. I LOVE IT!. I added a K&N cold air box and laminar flow air inlet. It was supposed to add 20 HP, I don't think it did, but it sounds GREAT! The car is Tor-red, with the chrome clad wheels. I'm constantly being stopped to talk about it. I have 20K miles on it, and have only done oil changes and tire rotation. Great acceleration, fun cornering. I don't drive it much in the snow, but when I did, the computer did a good job with the wheel spin. I live in a rural-sub urban area, I get 20-22 mpg depending how close I get to the city. Much better mileage at 55 than 70 mph (over 30mpg at 55, 26mpg at 70). Try it out.


Best Features

Front end appearance, Acceleration, Cornering, Mygig. (I've got 500 songs on it, and have only used about 5 gig.) Bluetooth, GPS, The car has CLASS!


Worst Features

There is that blind spot. I turn around to make sure I see whats back there. Not enough to make me not love it!

2008 Dodge Charger SRT-8 4dr Sedan (6.1L 8cyl 5A)


Review

This is the first car that I have really enjoyed. The drivability is great and the performance is out of this work for a 5 seater. I have three kids under the age of 4 and this allows for me to enjoy my car while still being able to transport the entire family.


Best Features

Power, Torque, Looks


Worst Features

a 6-speed Auto Trans would be nice. A factory installed spare tire or run-flats would be handy.

2008 Dodge Charger RT 4dr Sedan (5.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I just traded in a 04 Mazda 6 for this brand new, 2008 Daytona R/T. I drive Crown Vic's for a living and find a 4 cylinder gas friendly but boring! I have admired the new Charger since they were first debuted, but since it was an American car, I was weary. The Charger is the embodiement of everything I think "cool" cars should be - and everything that American cars should live up to. It is my absolute favorite car ever designed. I never got to buy "the" car up until now, I have always gotten the one that sufficed. This is just plain fun to drive. Gas milage is not the selling point to these, but I will gladly sacrifice in that dpt! I look forward to driving my car!


Best Features

I love everything in this car. The sound of it, the engine, the interior and exterior design. It is a muscle car in a family sedan cloak. The sound system is top notch. In dash nav system is great. I love everything about this car.


Worst Features

None. If it didn't fit the bill, I would've never purchased it. I would like to see the vehicle 100% made in America but that's just not the way the world operates anymore.
