Things to know about my new charger

well its not new but i recently purchased a 06 3.5 with 74000 miles. i'm loving the charger. coming from owning an impala before this car, i knew what things to look out for (problem wise) the catalytic converter's usually went out at 80-90000 on those cars and it ran best using ac/delco parts.

what are some things i should watch out for on my newly owned charger? what are the recommend type of spark plugs/ coils ect.

also i noticed a slight shake only when the car is in park and at idle. any fix for this?

thanks all,

2006 Dodge Charger 3.5

The only major problem area that I can think of are the tie-rods. They fail at a fairly high rate.

My driver's side outer tie rod went out, transmission leaked fluid (repaired under warranty), sunroof rattled, and my 3.5L engine ate oil.

that being said, I still loved my car. She's like an abusive girlfriend, that's hot.

Congrats on the car. Engine vibration at idle is usually a motor mount. Not sure about chargers but I had that issue on past cars. Its usually a easy fixx...
