  • Vroom vroom! - 2016 Dodge Charger

    If you do not like going fast, do not buy this car. It is the perfect combo family car plus performance. 375+ horsepower to tow the kids around? Oh yes I love it.

  • So far, so good! - 2016 Dodge Charger

    I traded in a 2012 R/T Plus for this 2016 R/T with Road and Track package. The Road and Track package literally turns this into a different car. Two different cars, really. You get two drive modes. Normal drive mode which I call "grandpa mode" is great when you're driving your mother in law to the hair salon. Or taking clients out to lunch. Or whatever. For more entertainment value, there's Sport drive mode. Power steering sensitivity, traction control, shift speed, etc., are customizable in both modes via touch screen. So basically, you get two cars for the price of one. Which is great. You can opt for the Scat Pack, SRT8 or Hellcat if you want to spend more. For the extra money, you get higher levels of performance and/or refinement and all three of those also have customizable drive modes, though they tend to always feel more "sport mode" all the time. If you want a car that feels like a "grown up" car when you want it to, but also can be fun... I don't think you can beat a Charger with the Road and Track package. I will also say that in the last 4 years, though the interior of the car aesthetically hasn't drastically changed, it definitely has improved in a number of small ways. Anyway... yeah. I'd recommend it.

  • My retirement toy. - 2016 Dodge Charger

    I LOVE my SRT 392 . It's my daily ride and I've owned it around seven months. Too date, ownership has been trouble free. The 392 Hemi is very strong and along with the eight speed transmission does a good job getting this roughly 4500 pound car moving. If I behave, I can easily get 17 MPG around town which is better than my 2007 SXT 3.5 LTR AWD Charger got. Mileage or the increased cost of car insurance were never even considered in my decision to order this car. I've always loved performance cars and had a 69 340 GTS Dart when I was 16 and to this day still own a 69 340 Dart Swinger. My car is heavily optioned and is painted in Crystal Granite with black interior. The interior is beautiful and so much richer looking than my 2007 which had way too much plastic. My 2007 Charger had horrible blind spots and I could never see the back of the car when I was backing up. These are no longer issues for me in my 2016. The car looks fantastic with it's styling and the way it sits. The active exhaust is loud during start up but quiets down when the RPM drops. There of course some give and takes. No more pulling up to a parking lot cement block unless you want to tear up your front fascia. Curbs can also be real mean to those 20" hyper forged wheels. I even had to find another car wash for the winter months because this car does not have enough ground clearance for some automatic cars washes. I gave up an AWD vehicle for a RWD vehicle and we're just getting into winter along with snow where I live. This is a daily driver which is one reason I didn't want a Hellcat but seeing I'm retired I can stay home if the snow is too deep or borrow my wife's Grand Cherokee.

  • Awesome car and Super Dealer - 2016 Dodge Charger

    Looking for a new car that has it all, then look no farther than a Dodge Charger. My SXT Rallye AWD is amazing. The 300HP "Pentastar" V6 does everything I had expected it would. Even with AWD, the car accelerates very well, runs smoothly and quietly, and delivers great economy. It easily gets 27mpg on the highway, and handles extremely well. The seats are firm yet comfortable, and the car heats up quickly in our cold Minnesota weather. In terms of road-holding ability, the car gets an A plus. It goes through the snow like a champ, and feels very secure all the time. I have had many compliments on the appearance of the car, and I particularly like the RT touches that comes with the Rallye package. I also own a Dodge Challenger Scat Pack Shaker, so I'm fully aware of what a muscle car feels like. The Charger is not really a muscle car, but if you think about it, 300HP not too long ago was considered a real hot rod. So I recommend the Charger SXT Rallye, as a great all around family sedan that also provides the look and the fun of Muscle car.

  • I love my new 2016 Charger - 2016 Dodge Charger

    I love this car. I bought the SXT with the blacktop package in granite pearlcoat color and love it. It's roomy for my kids and they love the car too. I was really surprised how good this car is on gas considering its a V6 with plenty of power. The rebates were good. I'm very happy with my purchase.

  • Great exterior, cheap interior - 2016 Dodge Charger
    By -

    Can Dodge make an interior other than cheap black plastic? Loved the exterior, very mean looking and sporty. 5,7 Hemi gave lots of power. An 8 speed auto it a little to much, kept hunting for gears, a 6 speed would do better. Love the tech and touch screen but no volume or radio controls on the steering wheel? Odd. The front seats were terrible. They were uncomfortably hard, lumbar support stuck out to far even all the way deflated, and the head rest was way to far back. Never could get comfortable in it. If Dodge would step up their interiors they would have a great car.

  • ScatPack provides loads of fun - 2016 Dodge Charger
    By -

    This car does many things great, with always a few areas of improvement. 1) Great engine, fantastic sound, well mated to the 8spd transmission so always has plenty of power. And the sound of this thing is just awesome....coworkers have told me they wait in the parking lot just to hear it start up. It sounds powerful, and can back it up. I drove up Towne pass in Death Valley (9%) in top gear (8th) at 80mph at only a 1/4 pedal. 2) Very good mileage considering what it is. I can get 27-28mpg at 75mph as long as its not too hilly and can stay in 4cyl mode. In suburbia, more like 18mpg. 3) Fun electronics. The instrument cluster has a hi-res screen in which you can display many things (even a horsepower gauge!) and it all works well. The navigation works fairly good, although Google Maps is still better. Backup camera is very clean on the 8.4 inch screen. 4) Seats are very comfortable. 5) Brakes are nice and linear, with a good pedal feel. And there are always some room to improve. Note that none of these areas are that bad, but they could be better: 1) I wish for a bit more visibility out of the car. The high beltline and shorter windows makes the car look great, but I'd like to see more. 2) The tranny downshifts when you come to a stop, and at times its a tad rough. Not bad, but could be improved. 3) The styling of the ScatPack includes a hood bulge which hurts front visibility of knowing exactly where the nose of the car is for parking. Add in the fact that the car had a low nose, and is big, makes it easy to hit curbs. I wish they had either a front camera or extended the parking sensors to the front. 4) The Beats audio system upgrade is very bleah. Its not 'bad', but certainly not work the money. 5) The car is big. That is what it is, but I wish it was 10 inches shorter. 6) Interior materials are good, not great. But with a scatpack, you paid for the motor and had to make up the cost somewhere. Overall, a very very fun car. Its hard not to keep driving around with the windows down listening to the motor rev.... Update: Almost a year into it now (10k miles), and everything I wrote is still true. Avg 21mpg overall with 4.6 0-60 and 12.9 @ 109.3 in 1/4mi.
