Best and worst feature

Wanna start a talk about what you all think is the best and worst feature.

To me, the best feature would probably have to be the Apple car play that comes standard. And basically how much you get out of a base model in any trim level.

The worst, I hate the gas cap lol. It’s a cheap looking piece of chrome. And then when you unscrew the cap, it’s too deep and that little rubber thing on the pump handle to prevent splash just gets in the way. Poor design. I know that’s petty, but it bugs me the most.

If I had to choose I could live without the power tilt-telescopic wheel, or it could maybe just be a little quicker to move.

I think the worst feature by far is that the car's tires are too skinny. For years as I saw them on the road I couldn't believe the beefy, bad ass car had the skinny 245's. When I finally bought mine I immediately put on 275's. A little better but still could be fatter from the factory.

Now with the wide body things are different. But other than that I think the car is perfect!

Hi Guys

2012 Challenger SRT8 in Redline 3

I think my car's best feature is its stunning good looks closely followed by the effortless acceleration from the reasonably powerful engine, the worst feature stems from its stunning good looks and that is incredibly poor all round visibility, it's like Dodge took a blind spot then built a car around it.

Regards

Dereck

I was astounded at how useable the back seat is (at least from the passenger side).
The Apple carplay is a little glitchy but truly most of the time when I am driving this car my eyes are rolled back in my head.
Unbelievable performance.

And I got 24 MPG driving to the race track.

Hahaha sitting in a new Camaro and then see if you make that statement.. I have never been in a car with such poor rear and side visibility before.

2015 Scat Pack here

Best feature: A comfortable ride

Worst feature: The adaptive A8 tranny. I get so sick and tired of having to reset adaptives due to the A8 always adjusting back to conservative shifting. I really wish they would at least give the option of disabling the adaptive part when in sports mode. However, I will say that I absolutely love the A8 but just hate this part.

On my 2009 SRT, I love the retro styling and performance from the 6.1 engine.

A negative is the difficult rear seat access on the passenger side. Also, I could do without the adaptive automatic transmission.

Best feature is, of course, the Hemi engine.

The worst feature is the rear seat head rests when lowering the rear seat backs...

Best feature is the exhaust IMO
Worst feature is when you get to close to a car, and it screams at you BRAKE BRAKE BRAKE. That helps out alot. Lol
