    nice man, they are fun cars to drive! I've driven the Charger, 300, and Magnum before, and they are all nice cars to drive. I have an '08 Grand Caravan, and it is NICE.

    When Chrysler and Mercedes Benz merged... Mercedes went down hill, but Chrysler got a hell of a lot better!

    I would have loved to have the option of a V8.....

    But I got a killer deal, I'm 23, so insurance is killer, and I drive an hour to work everyday, so gas mileage played a bit of a factor as well.

    My uncle bought the Charger SRT8 Superbee edition last year (car # 40 something), and by some freak twist of luck, let me drive it....oh god that car is faaaaast, and tight, and loud! Very very fun car, and looks good too.
    Nothing really wrong with buying the V6 car. Its a new car, and that's one of the best feelings...in the list of car induced feelings.

    Very Nice 8) Congrats
    I think Dodge is making some nice looking cars lately.Way nicer looking than Ford is....With the exeption of the MUSTANG,Ford has nothing that acctually gives out the WOW factor...
    When I leased the Truck,I was actually going after a Dodge Magnum or a Charger.I think the styling is awsome....But,they had no incentives at the time,so I ended with the Ram 1500....

    The Hemi engine is incredible,and makes it very interesting to drive, :twisted: :twisted: ,but the way gas is going,the V-6 is a way better choice and the way to go. BELIEVE ME,12-14 MPG HURTS THE POCKET BIG TIME...Especially if it is your daily driver.

    That's just what people around where I used to live get. Lot's of hilly windy two lane country highways and tourists. 10-12 mpg, 12 anytime they're on big highways. Around 7-9 when you hooked up the stock Trailer with a load of cows.

    i dont know why im just not a fan of the stock form of that car in any way shape or form... a guy i work with just picked one up (he is like 25 owns an 05 acura tsx ourtight and bought this for a second car (the army paid for his acura))

    the srt8 and they daytona versions are slick and require a double take but the stock ones look like an econobox muscle car... like they wanted to make a muscle car but wanted to appeal to the tree hugging hippies too so lets throw some boring wheels with bicycle tires on there and raise it up 2 inches so its not hard to get in and out of...

    to each his own, i get crap all the time for owning a volvo wagon, i just tell people show me another car with a nice stereo, heated leather seats, turbo 2.4l awd for 5k and it would be in my driveway. opinions are like a$$holes... everyone has one so please dont take offence to mine ;) have fun with your new car!
