Hello I Need Help With RT Decisions!?

1175 Views 9 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  toxiccaz
Hi this is the first post I have put on this site, I am going to be buying a Dodge Challenger in the next couple months and was wondering whats the best way to do it? I will be buying the car with cash and am looking to get a black RT with a sunroof and Manual transmission.

My desired budget is $25000 & want to stay to that as close as possible.

1.Now whats the best year to buy the 2009-2015 I almost see no differences in appearance's so looks can be deceiving, so which year should I get?

2.Where should I purchase the car from, Autotrader, Craigslist or Ebay? I want the best deal for my buck.

3.What should I know about the RT before buying it?

Thank you & I appreciate your time!

You may want to stick with 2011+ MY as they're a bit refreshed. The one think I'd make sure is done before buying is ensuring the timing chain recall is completed.

The other posters reminded me - timing chain recall was on automatic transmission only I believe. Manual did not have the recall if that's the path you're going down.

There is a difference between 09-10, 11-14 and 2015 models. 09-10 and 11-14 are pretty close. Main difference on exterior is the lower grill. Interior the 11-14s have a nicer steering wheel (in my opinion) and a few soft touch interior upgrades. Also, I think 11-14s have keyless entry on some options. 2015s have a different rear end, hood and front facia. Not huge differences but they're there. Biggest difference is the brand new interior.
