2006 v8 Charger pros and cons.

The gas mileage is not the best. The v8 engine puts out over 300 horsepower which makes it fun to drive. Heated seats are a nice touch. Leather seat and. Electric adjustable seats are nice. Has had trouble cutting off when oil is low with no warning. Performance tires would be ideal for this type of car. 4 doors gives you plenty of space for your belongings and to ride with company without being crowded.

- Jake M

They are very bad in the winter weather. Good tires or not and sand bags don't.

Had a few problems a first due to only being able to use 89 gas than the car ending up shutting down and the dealership had to contact the Dodge Chrysler main building to figure out the problem but after that I have only had to fix things that would naturally go wrong after time passes. It is not the greatest winter car but other than that it is always been my dream car and I love it.

Unique tales of the spacious Dodge charger.

The car is reliable because it takes me to and from where I need to go, one example work. The problems it carry is the car has a rebuilt title due to a crash with the previous owner. The overall performance of the car is amazing. It's very comfortable it has a nice size to it and it's very spacious on the inside of the vehicle. My favorite feature has to be the rims and the tints.
