2006 330i  [0.00]
Dodge Charger SRT8

Is it me or does anyone else LOVE this car? 425HP with 400lbs of Torque, 20 inch wheels and a HEMI engine...I would love to get one to add onto my car collection...I just dont like the steering wheel...

Anyone have any experiances or have one of these babies?

With a curb weight of 4160 lbs? No thanks. That weighs more than my Ford Explorer does.

It's cool and all but if I'm going to spend 40K plus on a HP machine, I'll go buy a used M3/5.

ya what guys say makes sense but a M costs much more to repair and maintain...according to edmunds the depreciation on this car is $12000 in the first year! ...thanks but if I buy it I will buy it used!

I test drove both the charger, magnum, and 300c SRT8 versions---the only one that I didn't personally drive is the jeep and the ram...but was drivin in those during the auto show for a few seconds. All cars are capable of mid 4's 0-60, but the 300 feels the slowest. The dodge couterparts feel more aggressive and edgy...which is better in my book. Look, any car that is capable of stuffing 5 people in it and still be able to keep up with most exotics... M5 too (not beat, keep up) for 40k+ less is worth giving props to. Oh by the way, during the test drive of the 300 srt8, I reset the computer, and got an average MPG of 7.2 MPG over about 20 miles. 75% aggressive, 25% calm w/ 50/50 city and highway driving! ---That hurts.

i was only a passenger in a srt8 and once the driver stepped on it, i could feel that torque with my stomach being glued to the back seat. it is a true american muscle car, that's for sure.

I would buy the Jeep Gran Cherokee SRT-8. 4.5 to sixty and AWD. I would prabably not buy any of them because you can not get a manual transmission. I will not buy a car unless I can get a stick.
