    Don't own a V...but might grab a SRT-8 Challenger when it comes out. I'm trying to get back into modern American cars.

    I am with you. Had a 99 and 94 LHS. Garbage, complete garbage with an attractive exterior and modern (for the time) interiors. I was blinded by their good looks (again, at the time). I am suspect that the Challenger will emulate those purely superficial attributes.

    I had a 2000 LHS, no mechanical issues in 119,000 miles. Great car for me transportation wise. The paint did start to bubble on the top a little after 7 years and the leather didn't hold up as well as our Tahoe, but mechanically very sound. Our 2002 Tahoe has also been a gem. No issues there in 79,000 miles.

    Kinda funny - I had a 99 LHS and an 01 Tahoe too at the same time. Both LHS' had repeated A/C issues, O2 sensor issues, and ABS/Traction malfunctions. The really BIG thing was that after about 20K miles, they started to drive like crap (NVH in both got really bad). Rattles, engine harshness, choppy ride, loose suspension and steering. It kind of seemed to me that they aged very poorly - like there life was calculated in dog years. As well, trim would fall off or corrode (worse on the 99). No similar problems with my Tahoe or with the 01 SLS I currently have that replaced the 99 LHS in 03.

    Just a thought, my 99 was the first year of production - always more issues. Perhaps that is why your 2000 was less problematic. My 94 was also a first year model.

    Back on topic, hopefully the Challenger is more like your experience, not mine.
