Our 7 year old dodge charger. 7 years, 3 state moves, and 2 children later!

2006 Dodge Charger R/T

We've had this car for about 7 years now, and it has not given us major issues. Of course your typical oil change, tire rotation, etc. Regular maintenance more than anything. I feel like it is spacious enough for it not being an SUV or rv. It is definitely not reduced or right in space. The trunk is also pretty spacious. The main think I do not like about the car is of course, it uses up a lot of gas! With gas prices being extremely high right now, that is a huge con for me! The car runs pretty smooth. We have used it for road trips and long distance driving. Actually drove it across the country! From maryland to california, and it is still standing! Overall I think the car is a great reliable car, like I said my biggest setback is the abundant use of gas.

Easy to drive and has a sport feature, you can manually shift or auto shift.

2006 Dodge Charger R/T

I have had my Dodge Charger for almost 5 years and it has been comfortable, reliable and fun to drive. The upkeep on the vehicle is easy and most places love servicing any kind of dodge. Being that my vehicle is 13 years old it is in amazing shape. Normal cosmetic wear and tear but easy to maintain. There has always been plenty of room for all my needs. I am 6 foot 2 inches tall and my husband is 6 foot 4 inches tall and it has always been spacious and fit all our needs. It has been efficient, fast, looks great and an all around great car to drive.

Dodge Charger, powerful but pricey.

2006 Dodge Charger R/T

2006 Dodge Charger has been decently reliable. It is an older car with a high amount of miles. Lately, we have had some rust on the rear quarter panels and issues with the O2 sensor. The gas mileage isn't the greatest, but the car has a HEMI V8 engine, so that is to be expected. The car is comfortable to ride in. There isn't an extreme amount of technology in the car.

Bright sunny dodge charger.

2006 Dodge Charger R/T

My car is very comfortable, has 4 doors so easy to get in and out of yet has good get up and go. Have had very few issues with it however there was a plastic pin in the shifter that went out and my husband had to take it apart and replace however was able to find the information on how to do this on youtube and only took a couple hours and saved us money.

Dodge Charger RT Since this has a hemi it sounds great

2006 Dodge Charger R/T

I love the look of my car but the gas mileage that I get in town isn't very good, it gets about 19 miles to the gallon. It's pretty roomy inside and comfortable, on the model I have, RT, the options aren't that great. The drivers side controls are all electric but the passenger side is manual which I don't like. The trunk is huge which is great!

The battery is in the trunk making a jump start easier.

2006 Dodge Charger R/T

I love my charger she is my first brand new car and I got the Daytona series. My car has never let me down and with electric heated seat and headlights that come on when needed. The only problem is my husband says that the car is to low to the ground for tall people. I intend for my charger to be the last car I buy.

Adult multi purpose sedan with comfort and performance and reliability.

2006 Dodge Charger R/T

Sedan with comfortable room and space. Simple operation, performance on demand. Reliable engine and accommodations.Plenty of trunk space, comfortable interior, great styling, not too exotic, great daily driver and evening out and road trip vehicle. Simple maintenance and not too complicated technology.

2006 dodge charger with a hemi.

2006 Dodge Charger R/T

The 2006 dodge charger that I drive has a hemi, its fast, runs like a beast. The problem I have had a lot with this car is that it sounds like the tires are going to fall off. I've had this fixed multiple times now and it continues to happen. I think my tires are to wide and it bends the frame.

- Jessica G

Do not like this car has been nothing but problems

2006 Dodge Charger R/T

Have only had for 2 years already have replaced engine because of blown head gaskets. Within 6 months of getting that done now check engine light is back on and hooked it to a computer told me head gasket is blown again. Now check engine light isn't on. I believe its electrical problems.

- Christy R

Great car, reliable and comfortable... Has lots of power behind it.

2006 Dodge Charger R/T

My car is a 2006 with a hemi and the car has been very good to us. Minimal, small repairs to date. Decent on gas, big enough for my family. Huge trunk. Overall, we love it! . The heated seats have been a blessing in the cold winters. The pickup is amazing.
