That's why I learned how to work on cars. I have done almost all of my own maintenence and repairs on my cars that have been driven a combined 600K miles over the years. Brakes, oil changes, plug changes, timing belts, etc.

I just did the 30K on my Charger and installed double platimum plugs for a little longer life. I was surprised how time consuming it was to change 16 plugs. That can't be cheap at the dealer.

I am starting to feel a vibration on braking and I think the rotors are starting to warp a bit. I would likely be classified as a more aggressive braker.

14 RT Max, TorRed with black interior. Purchased new 4/30/15. MOPAR front lip, black chrome grille, 20% tint, Rider Graphics stripes, ACC interior stainless, Viper start button $0.75 mod, MOPAR pedals and door sills.

11 RT Max, Billet Silver with Red/Black interior. Bought used 3/3/12 with 7K miles on it. Tint, Mopar front spoiler, Rider Graphix stripe, some interior bling, Corsa extreme exhaust, MOPAR CAI, 20" satin Viper replicas with Nitto INVO tires. RIP 4/17/15

11 Shelby GT500 Convertible, Kona Blue, SVTPP and stripe delete.
