I have test driven the charger and have ordered one. I have only one complaint and its the parking brake. Its flimsy and cheap looking. If it has to be a step brake, at least it should release by stepping too, instead of having to reach for that lever.
I found that if parked on a slope, the car tends to move backwards a little. Now with such a long car, chances of a car parking right up close to the rear is quite high. So a handbrake would actually be better.
Who knows, maybe they'll change it for the 07 model.

I agree! I have a R/T Hemi Charger and its a BAD spot for it. I bump mine and don't even know it. Then I get back in and go to back out and its "DINGING" at me that my break is on. Its happed like 5 times now! :mad:

But then I mash my pedal to floor and I forget all about that minor thing! :happy: This is a AWESOME car!!!! I love it!

Parking break.. how bout the hood prop. I know its been talked about before. I'm used to the general location of the parking break cause thats where GM puts it.

And yes you can buy the and install the Magnums hood props on the Charger.

This is GOOD NEWS! They may not have given us a 2-door but at least this car has a real parking brake!

The hood prop would be cool. But compared to how often you use the parking brake, its no contest. BTW Does the magnum props just bolt on existing holes in the charger or is welding required?

It looks bolt on. I looked at two side by side. You can see the attachment points on the hood (ball thing) and the open area on the car itself. Should be an easy fix.
