You buy it for the modern day muscle
2008 Dodge Charger SRT-8trentgalore - 08/18/2009
I love this car primarily for its speed and roominess. i love the acceleration and the attention it gets but its a little heavy when weaving in and out of traffic when running with the smaller sports cars so you gotta know your limits but this ones a rider i'd buy it again. I wish the dash and interior werent so plastic. but overall i love this one.
Charger SRT-8 WOW!!

I HAD BEEN REVIEWING OTHER COMMENTS FROM ARTICLES AND FRIENDS ON THE PERFORMANCE OF THE SRT-8 MODELS. SO I PURCHASED A CHARGER SRT-8 AND WOW!! THE POWER IN THIS CAR IS AWSOME AND ITS A FOUR DOOR. LOVE IT!!
There's no way for me to describe how much I love this car! The performance is incredible. The V8 Hemi engine has snap-your-head-back acceleration, and the braking system is stout. The steering is crisp and grippy, and cornering is hard and flat due to the width of the vehicle and the fat tires. The interior is sporty and cool, and roomier that you'd expect. All in all, this car is pure American muscle, and wow is it strong!
There are a few minor pitfalls. First, as you'd expect, the gas mileage is pretty bad. You can do ok if you can stay off the accelerator, but you won't be able to. Second, tires are very expensive. I'd suggest trying to find other brands besides replacing the factory Goodyear F1s. Finally, there are a few sensors in the complex acceleration and braking system that are prone to failure.
You'll get lots of compliments on this car, and you'll be very proud to own it. I love mine more than any car I've ever owned. It's a return to teenage dreams of fast cars - but now I'm an adult and I can really relish ownership of such a great car.
