2012 Dodge Charger R/T

Automobiles
Speaker 1: Not retro like a challenger not (forgetably?) like every other car like every other car. It's the uniquely American Dodge charger. We got in the RT trend that means we got a (hemi?). Let's take a ride of this 2012 American beast and check the (tech?) do it that next. Now the first thing you notice about this quite for these days is the (??) screen here on the middle, it's a 8.4 inches very squarish. It's one of the better interface of these days. If not the most elegant looking I mean the blue and red color scheme like can't leave without but it's really responsive and you gotta persistent ribbon of your functions here at the bottom. Now let's see what's behind them. Radio is in AM/FM sattelite radio no HD radios available. We also has a serious power travel link for fuel prices and gas station locations and stock (ticker?) 'cause you know you're checking the stocks while you drive. Under player we have a more interesting media under storage, you see I've got my optical disc here, SD card here you'll never gonna get use that auxillary jack and USB are here on the console. I've got my iPad in there now. It does really a good job of putting the information on the screen uses the real estate very nicely. Bluetooth streaming works pretty well. I didn't get any data on my android running android 2.3. something. I also had a very inner (meeting?) transport controls, that's why little things would they say check our bluetooth site I don't care, I'm not gonna go buy a phone base on my car and I'm not gonna buy a car base on my phone and of course we have Bluetooth streaming, Bluetooth handsfree calling phone book transfer, I thought pretty much the price would admission on cars today and of course these price are products of a pretty good incoming text message display. You can have them (read?) to you if you're driving, lead them if you stop and you got this new message area to send out some ten messages without too much distraction. Speaker 2: Any dog looking for (Havakio partly at?). Speaker 1: They should rename the controls menu, the place where things it should have a physical button go to die. I like my (headed?) seats my vented seats go about for a physical persistent mechanical switch similarly I think sport modes should be a button by the transmission not a soft button buried somewhere on the screen while I may have delete radio to go change the sport mode, that makes no (damn?) sense. Navigation is your main by now is the childish but highly rated (garmon?) powered system. I mean it looks like a cartoon right, however this guy scores like a (??) in JD power ratings. It is considered the easiest to use the highest consumer satisfaction. Look how simple that is. Duh or duh. What I did find though it is great for navigation, very clear, very simple. It's not good for browsing roads it was that just kinda rumbling around the country yesterday and it does a really crappy of it letting me follow my cellphone a map with great details of small roads around me, I didn't even recognize most of them. One choice on the gear box, kinda (antequated?) 5 speed automatic. They call it a slapstick 'cause you can slap it right and left to shift or you can use the padel down shift, up shift here on the wheel and of course that's four mode I showed you before is gonna do a few things. It's going to change your (throddle mapping?) to get a little more easy tip on the gas. It's going to also hold the (??) higher and it's gonna seek top gear left. Now high dream car has blind spot detection, cross traffic alert when you're backing out to traffic and gonna get T-bone. We have forewarn collision warning at two different levels of sensitivity and adaptive cruise control so the car will maintain a gap and not just the speed when you are in cruise mode. This car has a smart beam headlight. That means they tried to always beyond high beam when they detect on coming lights it will tailored down the intensity and the beam pattern to pull it down toward a low beam but it's a very different technology to either a two position beam pattern or one that defaults to low. Okay. It's gotta heavy that's what this RT is all about. Couple of things going on here. This is the car that gets decent MPG, we're talking about the minute, they're using fuel favorite technology. It's (cylinder?) deactivation when you don't need the power this gadgets turns into a four cylinder. They have end up activating 1,4,6, and 7 and the other four (??) cylinders will go to sleep through a combination of turning off the ignition, turning off the fuel flow and turning off the valve (train?) on those gadgets. Now those numbers 370 horse power out of this 5.7 liter VA, 395 foot pound of torch move this 4500 pounds a (dam?) to 60 and a little under 6 seconds while delivering 1625 MPG. Not bad. 1523 though if you do get all wheel drive. Keep the real wheel drive. Be an American not a communist. My main impression I get when it come way to this vehicle is you feel its weight as I mentioned 4500 pounds and it doesn't (mistify?) you thinking it's like 3,000 it feels like 4500 pounds. It's not a bad thing. It's a (??) heavy beast of a car but that also does tell the story, the engine is somewhat (trap?) behind software that is not ideal. I don't think. The software is reaching for higher MPG at all times seeking top gear. The sport mode doesn't really transform the car that much. It's a real honey when you get another paddle and drop it down a couple of gears and lock it there that's what unlocks the motor. It set I touch on the lock responsiveness versus power. Big different. This car has lots of power trap behind software keeping it from becoming responsive as it could be. I wish that have a better exhaust note RT (??) it means that it has a little more growl when you get into it. This one doesn't really have much. There's some growl there but it also some (dice man?) in there as well. It's make it feel real athletic. Okay. Let's price this charger and do it CNET style. The RT starts at about 31 but missing too many of the tech (??) has most of the good stuff comes in (trend?) level operate. So go all the way to the top to the RT (mac?). That's gonna add some $6,000 to the price now we're pushing 38 but you gotta get all the goodies then most of my life. Your all a card options are all wheeled drive 2350 (pass sun groove?) about it (fell?).
