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 full 2008 Dodge Charger review

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

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! full 2009 Dodge Charger review

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. full 2007 Dodge Charger review
