Challenger New vs. Old: Vanishing Point Revisited
http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Features/articleId=126092 "Our sole Challenger has just broken the ring of evil the deep blue meanies have so righteously wrought — get through 'em baby, get through 'em." — Super Soul, Vanishing Point 1971 It happens deep in the Nevada desert, just past Austin. On a long, straight section of road with nothing to lose, our friends in the white 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T finally put the hammer down. At once, the rawness and purity of Kowalski's ride pulverizes the well-insulated interior of our 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8, shredding the peace inside the modern car's cockpit with the same brute force Kowalski used to pierce a hole in the cool desert air 38 years ago. Even with my right foot buried, I see nothing but taillights until they disappear into the desert. In these few brief seconds, the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 is clearly defined by its soft edges and quiet Exhaust. Manufacturers don't let us feel cars raw and unfiltered anymore. Hammering down a desert road with a thin-rimmed steering wheel and pistol-grip shifter — that's raw. Four hundred and forty cubic inches and a four-speed — that's raw. Powerslides unhampered by electronic intervention — that's raw. In 1970, when Kowalski drove this very road — U.S. Highway 50 through Nevada — he felt it. And it was raw.

A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.





2013 Dodge Challenger Sxt Plus "Rust Bucket"
This is my "New" 2013 Dodge Challenger Sxt Plus with Sport Suspension, and electronics convenience group. Purchased this vehicle "New" from Colonial South Chrysler Dodge in Dartmouth, Massachusetts. This vehicle is full ,of 'Rust'; notice the front and rear suspension that has an abundance of rust. The steering knuckle bolts, and nuts rusted completely. The control arms are with rust as well, and the Exhaust. Is the Exhaust stainless? Misalignment of body panels are present as well (driver door). Is this a robotic assembly line, and is "quality" control still being used? The plastic stickers were never removed from the weep holes in the trunk area. There is also 'Rust' in the gully area of the trunk; "unnoticed by me at time of purchase". The vehicle took me about seven days in detailing work, for there were tar spots embedded in the clear coat finish. The monotone paint is really horrendous. In addition to this, Colonial South lied on the "Odometer Disclosure Statement", in stating the aforesaid vehicle had 13 miles. In fact when I took delivery, the said vehicle had 117 miles. General Manager, Mark Babineau promised a hat, and t-shirt to my handicapped mom, in which she never received. Mark also promised me a locking gas cap free, in which I received not. Mark said that he would provide a "free" oil change for the odometer disclosure, of being false. I was not at all pleased with that fact. As for the rust in the trunk area, Mark said he would bring the vehicle to a Ford dealership to have it painted, "trunk area". Dodge Corporate, along with another Dodge dealership stated this was absurd. Apparently, there is no body shop at Colonial South, which I was not aware of. I contacted the Attorney General in Massachusetts and they refused to do anything, other than providing me a free oil change, and promised merchandise. Dodge Corporate blamed the salesman for being dishonest on the odometer disclosure. This vehicle now sits in my garage with about 150 miles, on a "NEW" vehicle. This car has never seen snow, nor rain. Any lawyer wishing to represent me on this matter would be truly appreciated. Audio recordings, photos, and video can certainly corroborate the facts without any doubt. This vehicle (2013 Dodge Challenger Sxt Plus cost me nearly 30k. We would hope that the Chrysler Corporation may take notice of these faults, and the "Rust". Beware when purchasing a vehicle today, as most corporations use the bare minimum, and most cost effective materials. A 'plastic' car with a uni-body frame. I'm ashamed for buying this car. Researching for nearly a year was not long enough to notice all the 'faulty' aspects of the Dodge Challenger. Good luck "Hemi" owners. Those four cylinders shutting off at cruising speed is a 'wonderful' idea, ( V-8). This is most likely why Daimler left years ago. German technology would not tolerate such changes, whereas the vehicles were not being assembled properly.
