How reliable is a Dodge Charger?
My son really wants a Dodge Charger for his first car but I’m worried that it won’t be a very reliable choice for him. Do Dodge Chargers last for a long time without breaking down?
Answer provided by
The Dodge Charger has a mediocre score in terms of reliability. While its reliability rating isn’t particularly low, it’s definitely rated near the bottom compared to other full-size cars.
While most necessary repairs for the Dodge Charger are often more severe, it won’t require those repairs very frequently. As a result, the Charger has an average annual repair cost of $652, which is normal for a car in that class.
Unfortunately, the Charger probably isn’t the best choice for a first car. This is because the Charger has a high top speed, so your son will be able to drive very fast without practicing in a slower vehicle first. Additionally, the Charger doesn’t have much room for passengers, so any friends that he wants to drive around will have to squeeze.
