Sold my Car..Should i get a

Hey,
I just Sold my 2002 Nissan Maxima and have looked around the market for new cars. I dont want to spend too much on a car so im thinking of the 2007 DODGE CHARGER SE - it will come with 5 years full warranty and 3 years free service for $22500.00
What do you guyz think of the car? Is there any probs with it? is it realible? i heard there was some issue's with the brakes on the 2006 model but thats been fixed.
What do you guyz think? should i get it? I really would love the SXT or the R/T or better yet the SRT but i want to buy a bike in 2008 so i dont want to go into my busa savings.

The new wranglers aren't too bad. A bit underpowered in my opinion, but I like the redesign otherwise. and the new tops kick @zz!!

Take a look at the ls2 gto. Should be able to get them for the same price, even from a dealer. Great engine, and the back has more room than you think. People may not like the outside, but the car itself is good. My buddy bought one and loves it. Has bucket seats in the back that rival many cars front seats. I'd take a look at the gto, but I personally think the charger is ugly unless it is lowered and the srt version. All depends what you want out of a car.

I too just sold my Audi. I am going to rock the jeep and the bike all summer long but eventually (because I know how I am) I am going to want another car for fun. I am thinking about the following:

new WRX STi
new Evo
2005 Corvette C6
2002-2004 Corvette C5 Z06

or if I decided to go older and cheaper:

1998-2002 Camaro SS
late 80's notchback mustang
80's BMW 3 series coupe

and of course in the back of my mind I have the idea of buying a GSXR750 and tracking it...

Of course, all of this is if I do not decide to move to southern FL

For me, if I was gonna get another german car it would be an e46 M3 or the new 335i turbo. I just dont know if I want to spend that much money.

I would love a sport car, or what you call GTO, (we had it launched in 98 as the SS) But my price range is around 20K no more, less is good.
I do love the Shape of the new Charger and i had my dad speak with the dealer as he knows him and he gave me around $1000.00 off .
The Charger isnt that fast, it a good pimpin car though its got 240hp on a 1.5ton body.
I dont want to go over my budget i have around 12K cash and the bank will pay the rest for a 2-3year loan which isnt bad. I dont like long term loans. Plus I want to see if i have to add some money to the cash i have from my sold Busa for the K8.
My wife loves the car as well. I seriously cant see how i can go wrong.. DODGE is a good make.. they did come up with the HEMI

I didnt see where you lived. The non american GTO is the ****, looks way better than the pos that we get here in the looks department. I just don't like the charger because of the weight, but if you like it, and it drives nice, then thats all that matters. It's what YOU think, not anybody else.

The holden versions always look better. The new G8 looks great for them, us it looks good, but the holden is just better. We get shafted by the euro and jap companies, and now we are even getting shafted by our own companies.

True, I remember when I first found out about the Holden years ago before they brought it over here and rebadged it as the GTO. I wanted to find a way to import one SO BAD! Since they brought it over, I could care less about the GTO.

Get an M3! The only charger I would consider is the SRT-8, although, it does kinda look like a boat.

Personally, I love the older M3s, and you could easily find one around for the same price or less than a 2006 3 series.

Or of course, get a cool bike
