These cars (Charger Pursuit) do require a bit more attention than most retail cars, but they're half stock car, half taxi. full 2013 Dodge Charger review
 

TrueDelta Reviews the Gas Mileage of the 2015 Dodge Charger

2015 Dodge Charger Gas Mileage: Neutral
YearComment
2015 Anyone with much interest in fuel economy isn't going to buy a Charger. Or, if they do buy a Charger, it will be the V6, with EPA ratings of 19 mpg city and 31 mpg highway (the latter impressive for a two-ton 300-horsepower car). But you also don't see fuel economy among the "why nots" for the Dodge Charger R/T. It might only rate 16 mpg city and 25 mpg highway, but these figures are better than the Chevrolet SS's dismal 14/21 and the Hyundai Genesis 5.0's 15/23. Among semi-affordable V8-powered sedans, the Charger is the fuel economy champ. One trick: even at highway speeds the V8 cruises on half its cylinders. The transition between V4 and V8 modes is quick and virtually imperceptible, a "four-cylinder" light between the tach and speedometer the only clear indication. Keep the engine in four-cylinder mode nearly the entire time and the trip computer will report an average around 30 mpg, while the SS will struggle to crack 24. However, if you catch many red lights then realize much of the V8's potential when they turn green, then the average rapidly plummets into the teens, even the low teens--little if any better than the SS in the same scenario. Even idling takes a significant toll, as the Hemi hasn't yet been fitted with an auto start / stop system. Over the course of a week I averaged a bit over 18 mpg. full 2015 Dodge Charger review

I recently drove from Dublin, Georgia to Port Huron, Michigan. I reset the fuel economy gauge and was VERY HAPPY to find I got 37.0 miles per gallon for the 950 mile trip! Full-size, rear-wheel drive, loaded with a lot of stuff...well, it doesn't get much better than that! full 2012 Dodge Charger review

As one can imagine, finding reliability data is difficult for this car, since it is so new. I am very interested in buying a 2015 V6, and would like to know what kind of issues (no matter how small you may think they are) you may or may not be...
