#700 of 1087 Handling on slick roads

I live in Montana and I'm thinking about buying a Charger. Has anyone had any experience with this vehicle on slick roads? I drive a lot and I'm concerned with snow and ice.

I'm actually wondering about the samething. I now live in Fl but maybe moving back to my home state, NJ.. I know that my 69 charger handled like crap in bad weather. I'm hoping that this one does better.

Pricing has been out for a little while at dealers.
It is now on Edmunds own site.
Chances of getting one this year, unless you're willing to pay a premium,

Hopefully, since this car is based on the 300 and magnum lines, their performance will be an indicator. I've had similar questions since I haven't driven RWD cars for a couple of decades and sure don't miss getting stuck in snow and pushing. Been reading in the AllPar, Charger and LX forums too and found this article (hope it's OK to post the link here) http://www.allpar.com/cars/lx/lx-cars-snow.html

#705 of 1087 Ordered a Charger SXT and got a great deal
Sep 17, 2005 (3:12 pm)
I wrote last week about visiting Monarch Dodge and talking to Jeffrey Fair.
Today we went back and ordered an SXT for $100 over invoice.
We ended up getting a $500 rebate, and a $750 special rebate for Dade and Broward counties due to hurricane Katrina. This isn't a joke, they can't advertise it because it would look bad if they talked about it on TV, they just give the rebate.
I ended up ordering the SXT in midnight blue, 18" wheels, Sirius, upgraded radio (6 disc). The numbers match Edmunds. They add two advertising fees from the manufacturer. These two fees will say DAA ($235) and PPA/EB-PF ($235), and these fees vary depending on where you are and can not be negotiated. They also add $15 for 8 gallons of gas, and $25 for owner loyalty mailing. There's also a $5 tire fee, and a $1.50 battery waste fee from Florida. Add Tax, subtract rebates ($1250), add estimated tag fee ($97) and I end up at
I put 1k down, the car will be built in about 40 days. Jeffrey can track it once the building starts. It goes in stages, and he knows exactly where the car is at all times. He even knows what train the car is on, and the exact position on the train because they have GPS tracking.
There was no haggling in this deal. Jeffrey was very nice, it was like having a quiet conversation while he filled out the work sheet and we talked about how the process of tracking the car as it's built. Now I wait 40 days.
If you live in South Florida, please give Monarch Dodge and Jeffrey Fair a call. Ask your dealer about the $750 rebate for Dade and Broward counties. The $500 rebate lasts for another month, then it's over. Not sure how long the $750 rebate lasts, act quickly.

hmmm.doesn't encouraging in the real world, to me. the editor spun the tires from a dead stop...absolutely a no-no in the snow. maybe with time, you would get acclimated to rwd, again (for us old timers) but it would definitely require more concentration and attention to throttle application than a fwd platform.

I bought a Black RT. I love this car-except for the cheap plastic Fake chrome that clips around the ship knob. I bump it and it pops out-anybody else noticing this?
