Im having problems with my 2006 Charger R/T. The transmission will not go into third gear sometimes. I took it to the shop and they told me that it was some sensor in the trans that went back.The fix costs almost $700. This is the second time I had to put out major money for this car, and it only have 43,000 miles on it. Word of advice get rid of the car and save yourself the trouble. The car looks nice but its not worth the head ace.
