When the battery goes out in the key fob make sure you use a very very high quality lithium battery to replace it or you will have continued problems.

I love my car! I wish I had bought the Hemi but I know that would have gotten me in a lot of trouble. I have a Leadfoot and even with it not being the top-of-the-line model with the bigger engine, it performs like all my other sports cars. This is my 2nd Dodge, the first was the Stealth, which was almost identical to the Mitsubishi 3000GT inside. This seems more like a solid American muscle car. What I don't like is it there seems to be some parts of it that are made rather cheaply; for instance the dashboard is separating from the top of the vents. The inside molding of the trunk does not seem to pop back into place the which should and things rattle around in the top of the trunk like when you take a car apart and it is never as and tight as it was when it was new. I wear 4 inch heels everyday to work, and within the first 6 months there was a hole through the floorboard where my left foot set everyday. That's never happened before in any of my cars! Possible that I was a little harder on this car with my left foot as this was my first automatic in 30 years and I was so used to driving a stick that maybe I unconsciously put more pressure down on my left foot the normal. Overall it's a good car and I would consider it again if I ever bought the same car twice.

The happy owner of a Dodge challenger.

I love my Dodge challenger with the hemi motor. It's a beautiful car. The car has enough torque and power that makes driving a joy. This particular model year, the 2013, has had a few mechanical recalls. One of the recalls, the linkage, ended up causing other problem with the engine. Needless to say, Mopar had a new crate engine. Since I didn't have to pay for the new motor or it being replaced, I am very happy over my car. Maybe a better sound system because I like my music loud.

This is the greatest car ever.

I love this car so much. I get complimented on it everywhere I go. It is fast, it is comfortable and it looks great. My only complaints are the feature of the windows dropping an inch when the doors are open is a bad design for people who live where it gets snowy the windows freeze in place and makes it hard to close. Also sometimes the directional will turn on before the toggle is fully switched. So it you bump it by accident your directional will turn on.

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.

- Shelley H

It is not a very good car, like I said fuel mileage sucks.

It is not very good fuel mileage but it runs very well, haven't had any issues other than having to refuel every 10-20 miles. But other than that it is very spacious and very comfortable, I like the navigation features and GPS and on screen displays that it has. I wouldn't recommend it but I could say it is an okay car.

- Kay M

Coupe 2013 Dodge challenger.

I love the way the car looks and handles. The performance is great and drives really smooth. It is good on gas mileage. The car is very spacious for a coupe and has three seatbelts in the backseat. The car has big blind spots because the windows are small and the side mirrors are really small.

- Sara M

don't fall for good looks.

My car looks nice but that's the only good thing about it. It's very expensive keeping up with it. Gas burns quickly and it requires expensive oil changes. Also depending on your age your car insurance goes up. If you just want something that's fast and is eye candy then this car is for you.

- Caleb H

2013 Dodge challenger, rallye redline edition.

The car is extremely reliable. I love driving my challenger around town. The engine sounds great, especially when starting it. I have never had any problems with it since I bought it. I get around twenty two to twenty three miles per gallon. I would recommend buying a challenger to anyone.

- Nic C

Its reliable, smooth and fast.

It does not come standard with Bluetooth or a backup cam, but it drives smooth and has better than you would think on gas mileage. It's comfortable to drive, though be careful about hard braking. It has a roll stop mechanism that was very surprising to me but this was my first sports car.

- Michelle D

Stylish, comfortable, and very dependable. I would definitely choose it again.

It drives smoothly. It is very roomy and will get up and go in a hurry! The heater warms quickly as does the air conditioning cools quickly. It has features such as push button Start. It also has sensor unlock and 1 finger lock. It has lots of legroom in the back and has a big trunk.

- Melinda Y

Fast, stylish fun and roomy.

I have had no problems so far with my car. I love the way it handles and how much interior space there is. I would definitely buy a newer model of my car in the future. I would want one that is fully loaded though since I have the base model. Best car so far that I have had.

- Charlotte A

Super performance car great car over all.

- Art B

Challenger I love the unique color of my car.

I love my challenger. After driving something slower for so long, my challenger is amazing. People say they waste on gas, but i only have to fill it up once a week, just like all my other cars before it.

- lou b

It's a beautiful car!! I would recommend getting one.

Well my car is very fast. I always pass other people. I haven't had any problems with it yet. It always gets up and goes. The radio is awesome as well. You can put it in sport mode any time you want to.

- Elizabeth C

The car is much wider than most and has a long front end so it took some time to get used to parking it in tight parking places.

The spark plugs went bad about 60k miles and the passenger seat broke so the seat will not lock in place. There is a blind spot that can be annoying when trying to switch lanes when using only mirrors.

- Thomas R

It's one of a kind to me! It has a lot of get up and go like me.

I love it, just like a race car, it has a lot of power, but unfortunately you can't use the power or you will get a ticket. Nothing that i dislike, only maybe that it requires a lot of maintenance.

- lois A

My car is special and unique we were meant to together.

I love the style of my vehicle, the body, the interior and just the way it drives. I dislike the blind spots and low mpg. I have no complaints about my vehicle as I love it very much.

The beat detail about this vehicle is its comfort and power.

It has a lot of power, and is very comfortable. I like the features, wish it had a touchscreen radio and better looking rims. Other than that it's a great car.

A surprisingly good road car

My Dodge Challenger is a reliable vehicle that has power, good gas economy, and looks good? I would recommend it to others.

- Richard H

The car can be very stiff upon driving and making turns.

I like the sporty look of the car. I dislike that I am constantly having issues with my tires because they are low profile.

- Rosa W

My car is reliable and easily serviced. It looks much newer than it is and the interior looks really expensive. It takes lots of gas!

I love my car! The style and speed are great, however I'm going to have to get a new car maybe because it's a gas guzzler.

- Tonya K

It's amazing! Best deal for the low cost! Will buy again!
