Editor's Overview

Armed with a menacing body, powerful engine choices and macho attitude, the Dodge Challenger is another modern-day interpretation of a classic muscle car. The 2013 Challenger still trails the Ford Mustang and Chevy Camaro in the horsepower wars, but this large coupe offers more passenger room and everyday practicality.

2013 sports coupe challenger.

The car has small windows which makes for blind spots while driving, and the side mirrors are really small. The performance of the car is great and it drives very smooth. Even though it is a sports coupe, it has three seats in the back and 3 seatbelts. There is enough room for 3 people to sit. The car has been reliable so far and the maintenance on it is not expensive. I absolutely love the way the car looks.

- Sarah M

Car handles well on the road and is a eye catcher.

My car is reliable and had no performance problems. Just replace the brakes after hitting 100, 000 miles. I am on third set of tires the Michelin that came on the car had be replaced at 25, 000 miles. The continental tires was the second set and they had road noise. Trying coopers tires this time. The only real problems I had with the car is the abs sensor going bad and the set built light coming on.

- Anna S

Driver comfort and convenience at it is finest.

The red leather interior bucket seats are very comfortable and with all the added features of seat warmers, telescoping steering column, satellite radio, paddle shifters, and electronic controls in the steering wheel make this vehicle the most comfortable vehicle I have ever driven. The only flaw is there are serious blind spots.
