Surprisingly one thing I can say is they used a good battery for my 2010 sxt awd. 10 Canadian winters without using the block heater and I still have the original in there, it doesn't hesitate at all.

I keep telling myself to replace it but at this point I'm in love with that battery and I'll hang on to it until it leaves me stuck somewhere.

Another day, another moment to reflect on how much I appreciate driving my Charger. Through each scheduled maintenance, our beloved Chargers are maintained to last based on how well we take care of them. From the first gen Charger to the latest model, we do what is necessary to keep our cars running smoothly. My question is: what is the average lifespan in terms of mileage for our Chargers?
I think it all depends on how well a person take care of a vehicle. I've had vehicles go 300,000 miles and last 20 years because I took care of them, and always kept up on maintenance. I know the Hemi was originally built for 300,000 miles. Now you have to realize you are never going to have a car that doesn't have something that will need fixed or replaced. My Grandfather used to say "You're car is your horse, you wouldn't beat on your horse, so don't beat on your car!" Words I have lived by all my life!

I know it's not a charger, but has the same motor as one. Anyways I have an 06 SRT8 Chrysler 300 (as seen in profile pic) that has 150k. Burns ZERO oil. Runs like a champ. I am curious to see how many miles I get out of my HC Charger. I've had it a touch over a month now and it's already got 7500 miles so I suppose time will tell.

Basically haha. I gave it to my 16yo daughter (now 17) because shes a good kid who gets good grades and stays out of trouble. She likes how it sounds. I went to high school from 91-96 where the 225hp Mustang was considered FAST. I can't imagine how much trouble I would have gotten into with an SRT8 powered car.

I recently sold my 06 R/T with about 250K on it.
Only reason I sold it was rust (hello from Canada), and lack of time to do anything about it. Other than that it was in good shape.

Got new R/T, first thing I did was rust proof, and looking at other options to prevent it.

I bought my '07 Charger SXT 3.5 with 20k on it and now it has 323k on it. Just replaced the transmission lines and noticed it's leaking antifreeze from the timing cover area. It may be time for it's second water pump and timing belt. Still runs like a top. Original engine, trans, and rear.

My 2013 Charger RT has 94,500 miles now and glad to know I can expect to have 200,000 or more miles. When I purchased it it only had 16,000 miles but I went ahead and got a 7 year 100,000 mile platinum extended warranty that has a $100 deductible. I got this because of issues I had with previous vehicle and swore I would never get stuck with the added expense of failed parts again. 2 months ago I had an issue with grinding/vibration noise in the front end when turning at slow speeds and dealership said it was the tension strut rods so they replaced them. Without the extended warranty it would have cost me $800. Later that day I heard the noise again and returned to dealership and after looking at it they said it was the rack and pinion and power steering pump so they replaced them and that would have cost me $2,000. Glad to say that expensive warranty has paid for itself. Hate that mechanics at Crystal Automotive Dealership in Brooksville, Fl can't diagnose the problem on 1st trip in.

Knowing I have 22,000 miles left on warranty I hope more problems arise that are covered and replaced under warranty but knowing I can get 200,000 miles or more on my Charger makes me happy.

My 07 had 180k on it when I traded it in. The tor red paint was shot and the sun roof motor/parts were shot but the motor was strong, could still out perform a 2018 demo r/t with regular aspiration. I added a cold air Mopar intake......... but I LOVE MY NEW 18 DAYTONA 5.7!!!!!
