Coming from someone who owned one, the vehicle looks great, but the Traction Management System (TMS) built into the software from the factory, combined with the 3.06:1 rear-end ratio gears make for a sluggish off-the-line response that can only be fixed with aftermarket equipment at the expense of the factory warranty. If you don't mind being beaten at the stop light by any number of performance cars, then it's a fine example of an American classic---but it's anything but a "muscle car."
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!!
2015 Dodge ChallengerJennifer Williamson - Ft. Myers, FL01/21/2016
Love my Challenger! It's very comfortable n rides like a dream, very smooth. Handles like a dream, Huges the road like it owns it. I love that I can ride with my windows down n not hear the wind blowing it's super quiet. N super super quiet with the windows up, no road noise hardly at all. It's a sweet car. Don't think I'll ever own anything but a Dodge Challenger. N it doesn't hurt that it's super sporty/sharp, very easy on the eyes. But my favorite is it's a beautiful redo of 70's challenger.
