    Dodge has a really good looking line-up right now. Challenger, Charger, Durango, 200 are great examples of nice interiors and aggressive styling. A reborn Pontiac?

    Is it the interior of the new Charger that is making you want the new Charger over the old one? I haven't driven the new one yet.

    Congrats on the new vehicle. I'm sure you'll enjoy it and put me down as someone else whom likes white cars. My wife, however, will stab me if I get her another one.

    I'll be interested to hear how the V6 goes. I'm assuming its good because you bought one.

    .
    That was exactly what I was thinking. The 200 drove really nicely, and we (sales dude and I) had it out for a good half hour of highway/urban testing.

    This is the car GM could have given Pontiac to replace the Grand Am, IMO. But...GM doesn't seem to care about that, and they tell me to buy a Malibu instead. They don't seem to get it when I tell them that a Malibu is actually a Chevrolet.

    Nyet going to happen. Spasiba.

    Fusions tomorrow!

    We've had at least one white car in the Doors household since 1983. The only FIRM requirement for our next car is that it NOT be white.

    Your two pitchers are red cars, er vehicles. Which means the policez are going to be stopping you more. Enjoy!

    But thaxx. I like this in white, and we already have one black car to keep clean. That's enough.

    The 57 ain't mine
    The Colorado is Orange, the G5 is white, the G6 is gray, the child's Stratus is dark red/brown.

    The 83 was white, the 89 was white, the 93 was white and the 07 is white. You don't usually get to choose colors when you buy demos and leftovers.

    White ones look good but after 28 years of it, we're ready for some change.

    Is the touque yours, or was it a gift from the country the vehicle was imported from?

    Yes, it is. My g/f prefers white cars (has a white Escape) and I prefer black cars (hence, my Black Silverado)

    Not at Wille Dodge, but up Island somewhere. Wille Dodge hates me almost as much as GM Canada does.

    My Bonneville was white. My Grand Am is white. Neanderthal's 200 is white.

    My mother wanted white cars for a while because of the summer heat so our Blazer and Voyager were white. Now she's just particular about it being a lighter color.
    Pearl white cars I'm not big on, but otherwise I like white, too. It can look clean and sporty on the right car, such as with tinted windows and/or trim in a dark contrasting color (like on a...say...Pontiac? )
    And naturally mom's right, it is better in the summer heat (as a driver of a black car that didn't care about color).

    Most of Chrysler's lineup looks pretty good in white, yours included Neanderthal.

    On my note above, my father was tired of white after 8 years.

    I keep seeing more the 200 in the wild both in black and a few in white. I am very impressed with how upscale this car looks.

    Both the grill and tail lamps look great. Congrats again on a great new car.

    There were no 2011 Avengers around when we picked this up.

    Looks good man! This might be blasphemy, but I for one actually miss the straked hood... I think that your car would look great with it!

    The LED forward lighting looks fantastic! Best wishes for many enjoyable miles in your new car, Neanderthal.

    I really appreciate the fact the Pentastar V6 is E85 flex-fuel capable. Next time I need to rent a car for errands, I'm going to seek out a 2011 200 or Avenger V6 (normally, I always ask for a flex-fuel 4 cylinder Malibu). It seems like the refreshed 200/Avenger is the best kept secret in the U.S. market midsize car segment.
    My modes of transportation: CityBus Greater Lafayette, rental cars (usually GM), bicycling, and walking.
