2006 Dodge Charger SXT 3.5 high output from North America
Great feeling to drive it!
Struts, bushings and tie-rods, front end is weak.
The Charger is a head turner, has a pretty good ride, lots of power, lots of room for passengers, and good trunk space. Most aggressive looking front end ever in my opinion.
Interior is very plain, but I find the seats are comfortable, and passengers have no issues with the back seats.
Mechanically, front end issues are common, and be prepared for some costs there. This seems to be a common problem with many of the Dodge products built on this platform. The motor (3.5L high output) and tranny (5 speed auto) seem very solid, no issues here. I get about 24 MPG in the city, and have got up to 30 on a long drive to BC.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

After owning a 2011, I understand why a 2006 Charger would be a head turner... amazing to see a 2006 where the owner can still afford to drive it! And it's even more impressive if the owner doesn't live in the cheapest apartment available in a 200 mile radius and have 3 roommates!
Okay, now in all seriousness, it was the best looking exterior of any car I've ever owned. I wish it wasn't a nightmare of constant issues (mostly electrical), and they put in a transmission that doesn't jolt you like something out of the 1970s every time it shifts, as well as a transmission that is better geared for the car, and thus would make the car accelerate smoothly; not this incredibly crappy Mercedes slushbox that's a leftover from the 1980s, back when your typical Mercedes had an output around 100 GP or 170 on their "performance" trims.
Also, I wish the interior could match the exterior.
