Have I missed anything? I sold my SRT about 4 years ago. Thinking about buying another Charger in a year or two. What years are the crowd favorites? I really liked my 2007. Saw one just like for sale today. For what I sold mine for, even though it has twice the mileage mine did. Really liking the 2015 refresh. Anything I should know about these new fancy cars? Hard to believe that car is 11 years old now.:surprise:

the 2015+ models are a nice refinement over the 2011-14 models, and vastly superior to the originals -- the 8 speed transmission is marvelous.

I was curious about how people were liking those. I see you might have a bias. :D

I drove CTS4 with a 6 speed auto and was really disappointed because it basically just has two over drives. Worthless.

I had a 2013 with the NAG1 5 speed and it was ok, but the 8 speed is so much better... 1st gear is pretty low to get the car moving, 6th gear is straight 1 to 1, 8th is really high but makes highway cruising quiet & economical. Ratios are generally 4.71 - 3.14 - 2.10 - 1.67 - 1.29 - 1.00 - 0.84 - 0.67.

Alright. I wanna test drive an 8spd now.

So I remember a key turning trick to fail the traction control so it would be full off. Is there such a way to do this on the newer models? Or do they give you that option.

Night and day difference between the 2015+ SRT 392 and the old 2006-2010 SRT8. I still wish I had never sold my 2010 though...
