Bought new 2012 Charger

Just got this car last night, Black/Black, 3.6/292HP/8speed auto. This car is off the scale wonderful. It is just like a regular American car, large 120.5 wheel base, rear wheel drive, smooth, and loaded. We got the SE model with the UConnect goodies(this is my wife's car). The Chrysler line-up is getting excellent reviews and sales are increasing. My wife loves the car, quiet, smooth, powerful, and great gas mileage. Sure beats my 91 New Yorker!

My wife loves the Charger, the body style especially. She wants a four door. I might like to see them make a two door Charger, full size.

Any true mopar-man knows that the Challenger was a better-executed car from a style pov compared to the Charger.
I don't know why you like the looks of the Charger compared to the Challenger.
The Challenger is much better looking.
I don't know if you get much snow where you are, but not having a front-wheel-drive option for the Challenger is why I don't own one. (and nobody give me the bullshit that today's RWD cars are better in snow than they used to be).
But both the Challenger and Charger are heavier than they need to be compared to the LH platform.
I'm still waiting for Chrysler to bring back the 300-N concept car they showed during the year-2000 auto-show circuit. Based on the LH platform, could be FWD or RWD.

I have always owned Chrysler/Dodge/Plymouth cars my entire life. I now own a 91 New Yorker, a 41 Windsor, and the 2012 Charger. Looks are subjective.
Again, looks are subjective. Plus, I like a full sized car.
I live in South Florida, snow is not a problem, just rain and hurricanes!
I have always liked a heavier car. Hell, my 41 Windsor weighs almost more than the Charger!

did not the market tell the car companies that customers need fuel efficient smaller cars.
I rent a charger some time ago. I did not like it. I felt like I was in a coffin. very little visibility all around. performance is superb tough but I do not think it will save the company.
They should learn how to make cars with 1.5 to 2.0 engines at most to compete with high gas prices. yes k-cars with real k-car spirit (not with 2.5L or 3.0Ls).
Once I calculated how much extra I spend last 10 years on gas prices by driving my dynasty and acclaim: $2500 more than if I drove a 4 door civic. I ignore the reliability concerns.
Now I'm looking a way to jump to smaller car but Dodge does not offer anything small. I hope soon Fiat spirit will make them produce small cars. That's the way to go...

I had to get it into my head, ci vs. litres. Hell, my old Dodge Darts had the 225 Slant Six, and that is 3.7L. My 91 New Yorker with a 230ci/3.8 gets 21-23mpg around town, and has gotten 30 on the highway with full-sized comfort. I have owned MGs, a 77 for 14 years and 78 for two years. Their 110ci/1.8L engine with dual carbs got in the high twenties with spirited driving. The Dodge Charger is getting great mileage around town, 27, and we haven't got it out on the highway yet.
