If you're looking for a modern day muscle car, this is the car for you. The Dodge Challenger is an American-made muscle car with all the bells & whistles of current technology. Although a two door, the truck has enough space to fit a lot in it and the interior is spacious enough for two.
Overall, I'm very happy with my Challenger. I've wanted one since they were announced as coming back, and I got a good deal on a the base V6 model. I really like the machine and driving feels nice and powerful. The trunk leaves something to be desired, and I'm not 100% sure why they placed the battery inside the trunk, which isn't able to be opened without battery power. If your battery dies, you'll either have to climb inside the trunk from the cabin, or jump the car from the front. Minor issues aside, it's comfortable and recommended for the wannabe car enthusiast who doesn't quite have the money, expertise or desire to go into the full-on V8 powerhouse vehicle range.
2012 Dodge ChallengerDarlene Smith - Villa Rica, GA06/12/2016
Fun car to drive, mileage is good, very comfortable. Loved my car, was rear ended while sitting still in traffic by a F150 and walked away with just scrapes and bruises. I'm looking for another one. Not many cars would have held up like this one did in a crash of a F150 at 55+ mph while sitting still. Loved my Challenger. The only complaint was the blind spot backing up, trying to look on passenger side. But I'm ready to buy another one!!
