I have not showed her a 300, but I bet she might like one. I'll have to check the average selling prices. I like the idea of the AWD option on the Chargers. Someone did say to keep the NJ winters in...

I have heard that the 3800 series is a great engine. I don't know all the vehicles that came with that engine, but most of the ones I have seen were a bit dull looking, and do not appeal to her.

I forgot to update this post. It was the alternator. I changed it myself. Why would engineers design it at the bottom instead of the top? It took some time to get to it.
