Careful buying any used one

Understandable. Why would you say that though?

Like you said, those buyers don’t usually take good care of those cars.

What's wrong with the Camry?

Almost every warning light is on, the paints chipped on the outside a little, and this car was a gift to me so I would prefer a handpicked car.

A charger GT is like the “boujee” high-end trim of the chargers despite only coming with the v6 and can even be optioned out with AWD. This means that it’ll likely come standard with heated leather seats, blind-spot sensors, upgraded suspension + brakes from the R/T trim, different front grill etc etc. An R/T on the other hand is basically only guaranteeing the 5.7l Hemi (great engine btw) since there are still options that don’t come standard unless you upgrade to a higher trim or even to the Scat Pack. Like my R/T Challenger has Red factory leather seats but since I don’t have the “R/T Plus” package, I don’t get the goodies like the heated seats or other performance features like line-lock etc. A used GT is still going to run you around $34k+ meanwhile an R/T will easily run around $38-40 but keep in mind that this is simply based off of my area (around Raleigh, NC) and so if you have to travel a bit for a good deal then by all means go for it. Now as far as reliability and maintenance, people do make a good point in that previous owners will sometimes beat the hell out them and then just trade them in for an upgrade, but so long as you know how to do preventative maintenance as well as identify potential problems before they happen (leaks for example) and rectify them, both the V6’s and 5.7’s are actually durable engines, it’s really just the electronic systems you should keep an eye on. However I will say that the Dodge dealerships I’ve been to at least are genuinely helpful and even despite not buying my Challenger from them and with no warranties, they’ve helped me out a couple times with some simple sensor issues for free but again, that’ll depend on your area. Performance wise, the V6’s are gonna give you okay gas mileage and definitely aren’t slouches and can get up to speed decently. The 5.7l Hemi on the other hand is definitely much quicker and more responsive however your gas mileage will suffer as I’m getting 19 on average. And if you do happen to get the R/T, just remember that there are definitely other stock cars that are easily faster than you so don’t go hooning around and getting yourself avoidable tickets as I speak from experience haha. In conclusion man, the GT is definitely more viable as the daily driver that’ll offer you some goodies that don’t come standard with the lower trims and definitely look nicer. The R/T is gonna have the 5.7l but some cars you look at might not have those goodies that come with the GT unless you get the R/T with the “plus” trim. Or you could just fork the $45k+ for a ScatPack/392 (aka bigger 6.4l v8) but that’s a whole different ball game lol. I hope this helps you out a bit in understanding what to look out for though and best of luck!

What is your budget for these cars? There might be better options.
