My WK is getting old
What's up guys? I Want to get some opinions on a new ride.. My 3.7L 05 WK is getting old, just about to hit 140,000 miles and has been paid off for some time now. It's still running strong but as everyone knows, its lacking in the pony department.

I'm looking to get a second car and have been thinking about an 08-10 R/T Charger ( I regret every day not getting the WK w/ the 5.7 Hemi) . I want something with more power and more of a weekend cruiser that wont cost me my left arm to insure or purchase.

Any thoughts or recommendations?

Chargers are nice cars, but what about a Pontiac G8 GT?

I looked at the charger to replace my wk, i liked it because it was available in AWD

Re: My WK is getting old
I'd be in a Charger or a 300 because of the IRS and the AWD if it had the cargo capacity of the Jeep.

Like the Chargers as long as its a Hemi. Test drove one before I bought the WK and it moves. Got a better deal on the Wk is only reason Im not in a Charger now.

Awd Hemi Magnum? Sort of a blend between a jeep and a charger.. Probably a little harder to find. I looked for 2mos before finally getting another (nicer) wk.

Too bad they don't make the Magnum anymore. I looked at an older one with AWD and the interior was pre-Fiat and looked like total crap. :(

Re: My WK is getting old
I feel your pain wishing I went with the v8. Maybe Chevy camero idk about insurance on them though can't imagine it'd be too good. Or I've seen a few Lexus is250's for sale they're decent in terms or power and awd and you get the luxury name plate. I love the new 300 check for used 2011s. good luck w/ everything

Edit the Lexus years were 08-09 with decent mileage below 50k for about 25 grand. Figured I should say years and stuff cause new they're like 40k

Re: My WK is getting old
You don't want an is250..... May as well be a 2 seater as there is no room for passengers if there are two people up front.

Magnums are.... Different. There's one around town that's bagged out etc, kinda cool.

Trailblazer SS :D
Or of course SRT JGC
