Dodge Charger Reliability

You won't find Dodge Charger reliability information like this anywhere else. Actual repair frequencies, not just vague dots. So you can tell how much the Dodge Charger truly differs from competing car models in reliability.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to much more closely track Dodge Charger reliability as the cars age. Others tell you how reliable the Dodge Charger was a year ago, when the cars were a year younger and had 12,000 fewer miles on them. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Dodge Charger has been recently.

What Our Members Are Saying about the Reliability and Durability of the Dodge Charger

Dodge Charger Reliability and Durability: Pros

2008 4dr Sedan 250-horsepower 3.5L V6
4-speed automatic RWD
I "stole" this car used in 2010 with 22,000 miles on it for only $14,800. Let me start out by saying I drive a lot and I am VERY hard on my vehicles. With that said - This has been a fabulous car. I am just a few thousand miles short of 100,000 now, everything still works, it still gets decent mileage despite my lead foot and it has been super reliable. I have only three issues with the car. 1) The factory tires were horrible, they did not even make it to 30,000 miles. 2) Over 75,000 miles the front ends have a reputation for being "klunky" and, they are. It doesn't affect handling or anything, its just a bit of noise. 3) Spent $20 for a starter relay and keep it in the glove box JUST in case. I've have to replace mine twice in the last 20,000 miles or so. (Its not really a big deal, they just plug into the fuse box in the trunk) So, at almost 100,0

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

I am beginning to read about some of the problems of the Chargers and there seems to be a number of them and they seem to be the same type of problems that Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep products have always been prone to... i.e. nothing changes!

I have had nothing but problems in the one and a half years I have owned this car. I have taken it in for transmission problems 2 times and it needs to go in again, the CD player has never worked properly and when I schedule service it is always a hassle.
