The SRT gets the most fun as a daily driver award.

Rides not harsh Joe, NY roads are harsh Put some decent tires and suspension on and move to Florida, problem solved

I get close to 14 mpg's with a lot of in town driving, and no I don't drive slow! Just ask the local PD On really bad days maybe 11 or 12 mpg.

lolz^^^ that had me laughing out loud literally though-

mines a 4 days a week driver so i guess you can say its a dailydriver. but my miles are 95% highway though.

i dunno what joe is talking about with rough ride. i love the ride in our SRT8s. even without those enhancements mentioned above. joe just lives in an area riddled with horrible pot holes and road work and construction everywhere (LES) so naturally hed say such things. myself- i cruise more highway and country driving- its a solid vehicle and very comfortable ride even on stock tires. i know when i get the grey reps for winter and winter tires itll be even better ride too.(cant wait for that)

in a nutshell i get bad gas mileage but i knew this from the get go and like 99.9 of us- we couldnt really care less about stopping to get gas- cause we know we love the whip!
i did however have good mileage time to time driving like a grandpa (with my ex girl) but i usually average : pic below



yeah right^^ lolz just kidding-

Re: Best Daily Driver Ever?

i think ill lower mine before you do yours joe- the way its looking....

not to mention, my jeep dealer rep that sold me the car kept mentioning the fact id be spending roughfly 5- 15 thousand dollars a year just on gas upon purchasing the SRT8.

my response was " yeah i know "

he just wanted to make that clear as day to me - he was successful at it too. hahah

Re: Best Daily Driver Ever?

I've reset my MPG while driving on the roads around my house and got up to 16.7mpg. It's the heavy throttle and WOT launches and maneuvers that bring me down to 14mpg.


My last tank was only 13.7 as I got a new toon and was testing it out.....a lot, LOL.
