2012 Dodge Charger

Wife wants one, and I'm warming up to it...
Dodges always strong on style, but wish it had Versa sized payments, Nissan reliability, 530d driving character, and 520d fuel economy!
Maybe get a used Charger 3.5L w leather, his n hers climate control [love that in minivan], she says must be red or black!

The 2012 Charger is another car that hits a home run with subtle upgrades from last year, 3.6L included...292 horsies? Yessss!
Thoughts?

Planning on trading in the Versa or the minivan for it? Or keep all three?

I think in red it will look awesome !

Nice car. Seems like a solid offering.

I would also check out the v6 Mustang (31 MPG, 305-HP V6 AND THE 26 MPG) and Camaro (312 horsepower Direct Injection V6 model with an EPA estimated 29 MPG) . Tons of good options.

The only thing I don't like about dodge, resale value.

Good luck

03 SVT Lightning

Mods yes

I love it. Drove an 08 and 09, both drove great, the only thing that got me was that I couldnt find any manuals.

I'd snag the mustang before the charger. Ford is doing good things lately and that last mustang V6 is definitely one of them. But if the charger is what you want and you can afford it, then go for it! Life's short, you only live once so no regrets !

I loooove the new Mustang! Drove neighbour's GT Convertible loaner. I know someone who sells GM locally too and I'd love to fling around a Camaro. Charger actually very family-friendly. Even has AC ducts for the rear! True, ya can't get v6 stick, but I haven't seen many issues w trannies on web or otherwise. And since they do depreciate quicker than most Nissans, we prefer used with some factory powertrain warranty left.
I would prefer not to buy until Versa paid off first, but we'll see...
And idk how to live without a minivan!!!?!?!?! Good thing dryer fits in V
Will it fit into the 2012 Charger?!?!?!?!?!? hmmmmm......

Lol. You sound like my dad, he can't seem to part with the minivan either. He said he wants another one when Chuckie dies (hopefully soon; it's going on 14 years). Minivans hold a lot of stuff and people.

Yeah, we finally got rid of our minivan 2 months ago after having one since 2001, and lets say, I do miss it. I wish we would have kept our 99 Caravan. It was paid for, and would be nice to have around, to haul people and stuff. Its getting kinda boring taking 2 cars every where when we pick up my grandparents. And when we buy something big, we question, "will it fit?" We are supposed to be taking a trip to Tennessee in february, and hoping to trade in my versa for a 2011 Altima by then, so we don't have to take 2 cars for a 4-hr trip. I sat in an Altima yesterday, and I am totally in love with it. I am 6.2 and 260lbs, and need something bigger. I have kinda out grew the versa in 2yrs. It sucks cause Ive got 2 months and its paid for, but I just cant keep it. Im too uncomfortable, and it hurts my back and leg being cramped now. I have long legs, lol. But thats life, and its been a great car, and hate to part with it. But I grew in 2 yrs. lol

Thats true, most American cars do good with their V6 and V8. I just wanted something more fun to drive(no offence to auto owners).
