I have heard of some issues w/sagging, loose fit and possible bolster problems.

I agree on the high octane fuel, and am a BIG believer in snow tires for a winter ride. Huge difference in braking and control w/ decent sow tires.

Ive got the Laguna Leather. Mine still looks great..getting a little wear on the left side of the drivers seat as I usually sit in the car sideways and then pull my feet in as opposed to just stepping right into the car and its wrinkled the leather a bit on both the seat back and bottom on the left side of the seat. Not too bad though.

I also have a slight squeak/creak in the drivers seat sometimes. I think it comes from the base of the seat and only noticed it 2x recently but it doesnt seem to do it all the time.

I think my average fuel mileage is about 20 mpg in 23k miles.

Heres a shot of my interior at 23k Miles...Leather holds up fine really. If you click on and make full size the drivers side pic youll see where the crease lines are on the side of the seat bottom.

Passenger side is almost like new.

Cant say ive had any issues with the trunk coming down on me.

I Live in NYC and use the car year round on the weekends and for road trips. The car gets alot of looks (mines silver with black stripes) and thumbs up. Many European tourists ask about it.

Also driven in some light snow at times (New Years in Saratoga Springs) and didnt have any issues.

It been a great car. Ive maintained well and its treated me right.

No complaints.
Cool, I hardly see any Challengers out here in nyc. I have only seen EXACTLY one other scat pack so far on the road. I actually appreciate that, I love being the oddball. Too many Mustangs, Camaros and WRXs out there.... BORING!!

Can I ask why you don't have a catch can? Everybody seems to get one from day one. In fact, I'm waiting for mine to ship as we speak.

I dont see that many either.

Maybe its just me but I figured if Dodge wanted it to have one it would be on there..Im sure ill be flame'd for 200 posts but its just my thoughts on it.

Car runs great and I dont worry about it.

HAHAHA.... yes, saying that about a catch can on here is blasphemy

I was actually on the Belt Parkway in Brooklyn with an SRT392, too bad there was traffic at the time.

Seeing an SRT392 in person makes me want to get a set of 275s for my SP. The stock 245s are way too skinny for these cars! TBH, staggered would be best even though it hampers tire rotation.

Dodge is a company.

It wants you to get a new car every year, why do would you trust Dodge with what it wants vs. what you want.

Sure, all car companies want us to buy new cars frequently but they are also engineering and building their cars to last as long as possible with minimal problems and it's true some accomplish this better than others. I was in the parts supply business to Chrysler and GM and their sub-suppliers for over 30 years so I know this to be true from personal experience. I won't argue the benefits of a catch can but it does seem like a gimmick and would agree that if the car company engineers really believed that they were necessary for long term durability or performance, the cars would come equiped with them from the factory.

I drain my catch can every 6 mos (my oil change interval) and it's always 3/4 full. Glad that oil is not in my intake!
