Dodge challenger rt: the 'family" muscle car!

I drive a 2012 Dodge challenger rt equipped with a standard six-speed and a 5. 7l 375 hp engine which has plenty of power, enough to make driving a thrill and transform the vehicle into a cop magnet. Alcohol consumption is not an option, but who needs it with a ride this sweet. Interior is roomy enough to keep the grandkids comfortable and the wide tires are surprisingly effective in the snow--we drive it year round and use it as the family car. The sight of grandma rumbling up to drop off/pick up her grandkids in a muscle car, rolling stones blaring, our black lab sticking his head out of the moon roof, creates quite a stir at local daycare providers and schools.

This car is a joke and I never buy it again I'd buy a ford next time.

This car has caused us nothing but problems and many we have had to replace the motor already because the head gasket blew out on it and we've had to do a lot of work including have oil leaks repaired three times already so far all together that is a total of 4 gaskets that have had to be replaced the last one including the motor then the stereo went out costing us $800 already.

It has the 70s muscle car look.

I love my 2012 dodge challenger sxt plus, it has a great ride and is very comfortable I have no complaints about the car at all except for the three recalls that have been taken care of two were four airbag plugs and one was for the alternator other than that there has been no problems, though they could put a better set of tires that could last longer on the car.
