Drove a challenger today!

I gotta admit I drove a challenger today to see how I like it and I did. Much bigger inside, doesnt respond turning wise as well but makes sence since its bigger and heavier. Now I got a big decision, its hard to get a baby seat in the back of the camaro.

I have a booster seat for my 5 year old and it's not too bad getting him in/out. Just can't keep the front see all the way back.

For $10-12k difference in price, I would hassle with the car seat for a while. Then you have a Camaro, and money to play with.

That price difference is only if he's considering the SRT. The R/T is in line with the SS.

Camaros have more horse power and better fuel economy than Challengers. I looked at the Challenger long and hard before waiting 6 months to test drive a Camaro. (They had not started production, yet.) After I drove the Camaro, I threw the Challenger brochure and quotes into the trash. Yes, the Challenger is bigger and seats 5 instead of 4. Good luck deciding.

Eh..Challenger.. Chrysler even flat out said they're aiming at the people who had an original challenger when they were younger and didn't care about performance.

That being said..I love the exterior design..but the interior design makes me yawn.
