I've loved it since the first time I saw one around town. I don't know what's gotten into the Dodge/Chrysler folks lately(Mercedes, maybe?), but this and the 300C are just fantastic cars.smkeatr said:Very, very nice. Dodge did a fine job with that one. :thumb:

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it is a sort of reinforced unibody with front and rear subframes. It's basically the previous generation MB E-Class except for the motor and a lot of detailing. I put a lot of miles on E320s and E430s when I worked for Mercedes Benz... very solid chassis... tight.Heavy-Dee said:Cool man! Is that a full frame car or unibody? How's the mpg?!?!? How's it ride and handle?
I would seriously consider one.
I'm not entirely sure. But it sounds as though Frenchy knows what he's talking about. Mercedes also played a major role in the transmission and stability control of the Charger.HeavyD said:Is that a full frame car or unibody?
Listed at 17/25. I have put about 200 miles on it since I picked it up Thursday, and the reading on the EVIC is showing an average of 17.4 mpg so far. And almost all of that was around town, and out back roller coaster driving.How's the mpg?!?!?
I would consider the ride to be almost perfect. It is incredibly smooth, but not numb like the 300C. Feels attached to the road, but doesn't bruise your kidneys going over potholes and the like. And even though I haven't tried to push it really hard through the twisties yet, I can say that body roll is incredibly minimal for such a large and heavy car. Seats are comfortable as hell in a straight line, but once the curves start coming at you, you'll need to hold on tight because there isn't a great deal of support. The only downside to the suspension is some SERIOUS float over large humps. I hit a pretty decent one coming off of a small bridge at 80 mph yesterday, dude, I thought I was gonna go airborne!!How's it ride and handle?
WARNING!!!! If you are not seriously considering one, DO NOT TAKE ONE FOR A TEST DRIVE!!!I would seriously consider one.
When? We may already be coming up there next Saturday.Tigerblade said:Why don't you drive it 25 miles north for a BBQ?
No. Not even a little bit.Beedy A said:So do you feel the cylinder cut/return at all?
