2008 Dodge Charger Quality

On Quality

While TheCarConnection.com notes sources stating that lateral seating support is lacking at high speeds on twisting back roads, overall comfort levels in the 2008 Dodge Charger are well above average.

With the original Charger, Dodge was big on brute strength and performance, but short on comfort (which wasn't really the point, after all). Its descendant, the 2008 Dodge Charger, is "packaged with modern creature comforts...it rides, turns and stops as well as it goes," according to Automotive. In terms of structural integrity, Car and Driver acknowledges that when they "encountered Michigan's Baghdad-quality potholes...the platform held as firmly and shiver-free as a bridge abutment, and no subassemblies rattled or squeaked."

For what it is, the 2008 Dodge Charger is comfortable enough for the longest days of traveling.        

In most of the reviews researched by TheCarConnection.com, writers praise the interior roominess of the Charger. Dodge’s cabin is enough for "five adult passengers to ride in comfort," according to ForbesAutos. It is generally acknowledged, however, that the sloping back roof makes for some headroom problems for some passengers. “Front occupants get plenty of elbowroom and legroom, and rear legroom is ample,” Cars.com says. “Headroom in models equipped with a sunroof is good but not vast.”

Kelley Blue Book calls the interior "nothing terribly interesting to look at, [helping to] reinforce the notion that this car should be driven with a focus on the road ahead." Car and Driver also “carped about the Charger's funereal black-and-gray interior, cheapened by rock-hard armrests and a crinkly dashboard vinyl that would have been more appropriate in a mud-splattered Dakota.”
