    I get about 27 doing 80mph on the highway. My city driving is about 15, because I like to play. The stickers say that the only difference in mpg is 1 in the city.

    Which model do you have? The SXT?
    Stickers between the SXT and R/T?

    I have heard that the 5.7 Challenger with auto trans with MDS are blowing their timing chains off. Have not heard anyting bad about SXT Challengers.
    So better stick with the 6 spd. manual on both R/T and SRT Challengers.:shocked:

    I own an R/T now, but my first one was an SE with the 3.5, fun car also. Was able to trade up and get a better deal all around.

    Just curious out of the 3 models SXT, R/T and SRT would be the most reliable car.

    They all are reliable. I have a friend who has put 200K on their 2009 Chally R/T. The only thing they have had to do is replace a clutch.

    Well let us know when you have made a decision. Good luck with that decision also.
