Default 1000 miles in a Charger.

It was only a base model, but I like the 300 better...the arm rests on the drivers side arent comfortable on a 400 mile drive. It was slow, with a 2.7, but i expected that. As much a the magazines and DCX rave about how it handles, it wasnt what i expected...perhaps the higher end models have better suspension...?

It does get looks though...here are some pictures from this weekend.

Default RE: 1000 miles in a Charger.

I am an owner of a 300 C and follow the LX cars. I thought the Dodge Charger Base was a 3.5 with the 5 speed trans. I know the 300 base was a 2.7 4 speed. I don't think the Charger was ever intoduced with that configuration. Please check the Dodge Web site. I would not think they made a bastard model for the rental market. The 300 and Magnum models that I have rented in the past were both 3.5 litre. The 300 rental that I drove with the 3.5 and the 4 speed (2 years ago) was not the car that I own but was adequate for the purpose it served.

What would you expect from a base model? Actually, it sounds more like a rental specific model...
