    Transmission: Manual 6 Speed Color: Red Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.75 (4 reviews) "This car is a lot of fun to drive. Sport mode stiffens suspension assisting in acceleration and cornering. The Engine noise is growly though a bit quieter than you'd expect from 6.4L. The build quality appears to be pretty decent; there is some plastic on the interior and the doors/inside rear panels present quite a lot of it actually but it is light and does the job. The Leather and suede seats are comfortable and hug you for those times when you are driving spiritedly. The size of the car is something to get used to but stay pretty flat in corners. Parking can be a bit of a chore especially if you want to back into a space or parallel park since there is almost no visibility toward the rear/rear sides. Changing lanes is also something of a guessing game due to visibility limitations. Gas mileage is not bad considering, I have a blend of city and highway traffic, mostly rush hour stuff, and I average around 18MPG on 93 Octane. The brakes are insane and I'm pretty sure that if I had to stop quickly the guy behind me would not be able to avoid a collision; that said the Brembo's seem to dust up the rims rather quickly so you might want to get a wheel protector product that will shed the dust. Dash is laid out nicely and Dodge didn't spare you too many gadgets so you'll have heated steering wheel if you like, heated seats, Informational computer with settings for at least a dozen different car behavioral functions, keyless entry and go, cruise control, steering wheel mounted controls, tire pressure gages and all sorts of goodies. The manual gearbox is very good, smooth into any gear. When not moving it is hard to tell what gear is what, but once you are driving it seems to just go where you want it to. The clutch is not unbearable though the engagement zone is pretty short so you have to get used to it. I never drove it in the snow (I have a 4x4 for that) but in the rain you'll easily lose the rear end if you put your foot into it even a little and especially on a curve. Care should be given to wet driving and given that I'd just assume you are not driving this in the snow unless you don't want to keep it."

    Transmission: Manual 6 Speed Color: Yellow Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.75 (4 reviews) "Earlier this year I decided my new personal "fun" car would be a Challenger SRT8. I chose it over the Ford Shelby GT500 and Chevy Camaro ZL1 for a number of reasons. -Looks: While the Camaro and Shelby are awesome cars, you can't really call their styling retro which you can with the Challenger. It really does bring back memories of the ones I saw as a kid. -Performance: The lack of a supercharger, plus it's larger size and weight means it's the least performing of the three, but how much HP and Torque do you really need to tool around the city and highways with? The Challenger SRT8 had more than enough. With base 470hp/470 torque. Several companies are also in the process of rolling out aftermarket supercharger kits for the 392 HEMI engine. It's not something I'd do now, but perhaps after the teenagers are out of the house, the car is out of warranty, etc.... -Size: The larger size sold me too. I can actually fit non-amputee adults in the back sears even though getting there is a little rough. That's not all that realistic with the Shelby or Camaro. The interior definitely feels more roomy to me than when I was sitting in the competitors models. The width of the car can make things a little tight if you have a house with multiple single garage doors instead of double ones, but I get it in and our without too much fear that I'm going to rip off a side view mirror. For many though the more important question is what DON'T I like about the car. I have a few little things that I'll mention. -Gas mileage: This should be a no brainer but this is NOT what most would consider a commuter car by any means. In the city, depending on how aggressively you drive it, you may get the rated 14mpg, or you may get less. It also uses premium fuel, not regular unleaded. So be prepared to pay a pretty penny at the pumps. I have one with a six speed manual transmission in it. If you get the automatic, it'll have fuel saver technology in it that will shut off four of the eight cylinders under certain conditions (mainly non stop and go highway driving). Other owners with automatic trannys have told me this does save them money on long trips, but not really for city driving. -Navigation system: The Challengers come optionally equipped with a Navigation system. It's based on Garmin software which is a respected navigation system manufacturer, but it's screen size is smaller than what you'll find on most other cars today, even in the Dodge line up like the Charger. What bugs me about it is that it shows roads but not street names most of the time. So if your looking for a side street, but haven't set it as a destination before hand, it's not always helpful finding it. -speakers: Challengers come with decent radio systems, depending on options integrated with the navigation system. I have no problem with that, but the Boston Acoustics sound system is totally underwhelming. I've messed with it plenty but no matter what it sounds like speakers in a car from the 70s. A little more retro than I was looking for guys! Dodge does offer an 18 speaker Harmon Kardon option, but for a LOT of money. This will be my first upgrade to the car, taking it to a shop and replacing the speakers with something that gives me better sound. -Attention: This can be an upside and downside of any nicely styled car. Mustangs are a dime a dozen on the roads, not so much so with Challengers. They get noticed. I've yet to drive by a cop that didn't have a radar gun pointed at me. I had a guy in a parking lot tell me that his wife would be out in a minute and I could probably pick her up with my car. People do roll down their windows at stoplights and try to ask me questions about the car. All in all, a few months after I bought it I'm not suffering buyers remorse at all. It's an awesome looking car that's comfortable and fun to drive. Not perfect, but I've yet to truly find "the perfect car.""
