We are looking for any info about them we can get.  We have a few as admin. cars but are looking for how they hold up as patrol vehicles.  Also cost info such as cost per mile v/s other vehicles.  We have already heard they are harder to outfit and cost more.  We have two 2006 hemi chargers, one just lost a engine at 56,000 but it was a traffic car that we know was run hard.  It also had been run hot a few times one of which I believe the fan blade came apart and damaged the radiator, ( I saw your other post ) but we had extended warranty with a $50.00 deductible. Same with the engine job.  Don't want to base any decisions on these two cars.

Hi,

I can not provide a cost per mile figure. But can share the following. They are a little more expensive to up fit due to the configuration and also willl cost more for emergency equipment as not much equipment will transfer. Brakes last about the same as any police vehicle. We have seen tie rods wear out early, the front radius arms fail and bang like crazy on rough surfaces. Just yesterday we had one come in on the hook because the fan baldes came apart and pierced the radiator. That was around 55,000 mile range. Officer visibility from inside the cockpit has been a common complaint also. We have not experienced any engine failures on the 3.5L. Hope this helps.
