I currently own a 2013 Challenger RT with a 6 speed manual Barton shifter. There are the normal mods, but that's it (Barton, oil catch can, res delete). I am a UC Mgr at a Cadillac dealership, have owned many caddys and driven many Vs, but never owned one. My gripe is, if you have a "muscle" car, it should be a stick. Well, I moved and now commute 40 minutes 1 way day. Some days, the manual is fun, but others I want to just relax and listen to KFAN. As I work at a Cadillac dealership, I know all about the misfortunes of the 4.4 Northstar, and then you throw a supercharger in the mix and its like bad gets worse. On the flip side, though, anyone I talk to that has or had an STS V swears by their reliability and overall driver experience - INCLUDING MY CADDY TECHS! I have owned an STS v8, but not a V - and had no issues besides the normal drop on the garage floor (like Harley, if a Northstar isn't leaving a drop on your garage it means you are out of oil lol). Not to mention, only 2500 made Vs versus how many thousands Challenger RTs produced, I mean c'mon - rarity alone has my intrigued. And finally, it's not a good look that a senior manager at a GM dealership daily drives a FCA. Not to mention my yard truck is a old Ford, and my fiance drives a murdered out Grand Cherokee - I NEED a Caddy back in my life lol. I would love some guidance if I am running a fools errand and should stick with the Challenger, or leap into the great unknown and potential glory of the STSV. Ah, yes.. the #s. 2006 STS - V, 2 owner. 201k miles, but was Green light on the auction and stated the supercharger was replaced at 140k. Also, all the Northstar engine seals were redone at 120k in 2015. The car is an 4.2 out of 5 condition grade IMO, it looks amazing. My techs were already asking if it checks out what I would sell it for, they were disappointed when I told them it potentially is a personal car. Price out the door tax included in MN will be about 7500 bucks. HELP ME PLEASE!! Keep the Dodge, or get with the hero and rock the STSV??
