Used Car of the Day: 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T

We haven't featured too many Dodge Challengers -- if we've featured any at all -- in this slot. So, today, we've got a nice 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T for you.


It has 151,000 miles and an automatic transmission, so I can already hear you "save the manuals" types getting annoyed. But if you can live with just two pedals, you'll get a car that still has a 5.7-liter V8.

There are flaws such as fading paint and an inoperative radio screen. The car does have new cams and lifters and is lowered.

Give it a look here -- the seller is in Arizona and asking $12,500.

Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at Web2Carz.com. He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for About.com, CarFax, Vehix.com, High Gear Media, Torque News, FutureCar.com, Cars.com, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as AutoGuide.com, Off-Road.com, and HybridCars.com. He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.

    Nah. These are popular enough that unless you want a project or a quasi-rat rod daily, plenty of less worn examples are out there. You'll likely pay more, but paint (continuous exposure to southwestern sun will kill paint beyond a detailer's ability to save) and electronics aren't cheap if you can't do them yourself or have a reputable hookup. And as others have pointed out, the refresh cars really hone the formula with their interior and mechanical improvements.

    Way too many variables:

    • insurance would be Sky High
    • great candidate to disappear in a down town parking garage
    • has it been stolen and now returned to owner after one hell of a joy ride
    • unknown on how modifications done (shade tree or pro)
    • any prior accidents
    • why does the owner want to get rid of it (impending explosion of transmission?)
    • don't like the idea its been slammed (British vernacular for lowered)
    • does the A/C really work??


    The list goes on and on...


  • Sobro Needs moar Roots.
  • ToolGuy BIDEN LINKS
  • RHD Questions? None, no, not really. Interested in some random Hyundai? No, not at all. Yawn.
  • Formula m Alfa-Romeo had the great idea to unveil my all time favourite car at the world expo in Montreal. Never built or Sold in North America. The called it the Alfa Romeo Montreal. Never even sold in North America.
  • RHD Nice little car. Give it comfortable seats, price it very competitively and leave the Alfa Romeo script on the grille. We need a smaller, cheaper electric car, and this could be just the thing to bring AR back. Heck, rebrand a variant as a Chrysler, so that potential buyers actually have something to look at in the showroom. Give it a nice long warranty. The wheels are great, hopefully the rest of it will follow through.
