What do you think about this car, along a BMW? I like the looks but how about quality and mileage and everything?

Thanks!

The best summary of the car would be found in the Car and Driver reviews IMO

I think it's amazingly cheap for the power you're getting in the SRT-8; I like its looks, but I think it's probably worth every penny that you'd pay for it.

Nice, solid car, from what I understand. I like the looks and that it is RWD. I would definitely take a test drive before I make up my mind. Out of the American cars, one of my faves. I have never driven one, though.

I found the article on caranddriver web site. Thanks for the input, and yes I will take a test drive before purchasing one. Until now I heard only good stories about this car. You guys will hear it when I have made my final decision and I'll show the pictures here at first!

Georgia State Patrol has been using them in the R/T spec. The transmissions are going out right and left. I know a guy who knows their equipment manager, and he's seriously regretting buying them.

i stand reinforced. Any serious abuse, and the transmissions fold like me at a high stakes poker game.

They are quick, but I would take the Mustang GT over this car. I think they are a better value.
