I dont own, but I rented, put about 600 miles on it. First let me say, there is no replacement for displacement. A 3.6 liter V6 with almost 300 horses on tap is pretty intoxicating. I had a wonderful drive from Los Angeles to Solvang in central California, a distance of about 150 miles, driving on the coastline through beaeutiful Santa Barbara and into the mountains. It was 6 of us, wife, in-laws and 2 dogs and all our stuff, tons of space between the passengers, so its safe to say....FULLY LOADED. I averaged about 70 mph, doing almost 90 at times, AC on, never felt strained or out of breath and I managed to get 27 mpg according to the readout. Pretty impressive for a car of that heft. I loved it.

Hi,
Its a good idea to rent a car like what you have did and enjoy the thirlls for one or two days. But am not sure we will get these kind of things in India.

Absolutely, I had it for about 4 or 5 days. I live in Manhattan, so there is no parking, I fly to LA to visit my inlaws about 3 times a year, the best car I rented which was comfy and great on gas was a 2012 Mitsu Galant, my only issue was no bt or aux in, but it was great, did 1300 miles in 5 days and didnt feel it.

2013 Dodge Charger.

These are powerful vehicles. Some interior ministry (police department) unit uses these vehicles as command & control vehicles. My friend is having this vehicle. He use one hand for Smartphone, one hand for smoking, and which hand he use (not sure) to drive this vehicle. The breaking is very effective.
