Well, I finally accomplished something I've never had the opportunity to do in over 30 years of driving: I was given the opportunity to buy a brand new Chrysler police car. I've had a lot of Chrysler squads over the years, and the story that follows may be of interest to anyone looking at buying a used or, possibly, new Charger police car. I purchased my 2013 Hemi Pursuit new. The dealership had several to choose from, they had picked them up from the Chrysler auction for dealer stock. They had gone unsold, and upon my inquiry, they were able to determine that I could, indeed, purchase the car. The specifics: The car is Pitch Black, dogdish caps, the full Hemi Pursuit 29A Package, and also has an LED spotlamp, power L&R seats, power pedals, carpet with mats, and a full size spare. As far as performance, I will put it this way: It is unbelievable the extent of power, handling, and braking capability that this car has. The first things I did upon arriving home with it was to remove the spare tire relocation bracket. It mounts the tire at a 45 degree angle, basically taking up most of the trunk space. There was/is another option that stores the spare upright in the trunk well behind the optional slide-out electronics tray. I removed the bracket, and simply laid a rubber mat down at the front of the trunk floor and slid the tire up flat, just like the old Diplomat (though the Dippy had a trunk well that would accomidate the full size 15" spare). That leaves space on one side, and above, the tire, as well as a full trunk well and the area behind the tire. I will be procuring a civilian trunk floor cover that will allow me to store things in the well as well as use the flat floor space above. The car has the standard police mini-console, which includes 2-12v outlets and the Aux/USB port. My intention was to replace that with either the civilian console or perhaps a short police console to mount a CB and mobile scanner to use while spotting severe weather. That plan is on hold, because ... I went to the local police department to inquire about the necessity of a vehicle inspection (purchased out-of-state), which wasnt required, but also to establish goodwill between the police-car hobby and the department. The county in which I live, along with most surrounding counties and many municipalities and the State Patrol, all use the LD Charger as a primary Law Enforcement Vehicle. I was advised to try to leave the appearance of the car as-is, with no auxiliary lights, antennas, and certainly no markings of any kind. It turns out they were right, in ways I didn't imagine at the time - the car really draws attention. Mostly positive, but there's a few jokers out there who try to provoke reactions, and others who really hate cops. It's very important for people who buy these cars to remember that departments are using the cars in increasing numbers, more so now since the Charger is starting to capture Ford sales of departments fed up with the Taurus and Exploder. Driving this car requires a lot of patience and a lot of smiling and hand-waving. The idea is to give positive feedback, and relate to the public that it IS a cool car, and yes, it has very high performance, and for that reason, people should act appropriately around one. The other thing to keep in mind is that since I am not a law enforcement officer, I absolutely must not drive or use the appearance of the car in any way that could be construed as impersonating a police officer. This, of course, is an age-old problem in the police-car hobby, but it is the single most important factor for a person to keep in mind if they buy a new or used police car. It goes in to the local dealership next week for a full inspection to determine what, if any, work may be needed to rectify 2 years' of the car's sitting unsold. The Goodyear RSA tires had some nasty flat spots, 3 of which resolved by themselves, the fourth did not, so that became the spare. I suspect old fuel created some injection issues, as the car seems to misfire on occasion. We will see how that turns out, and I will update this thread from time to time with reliability/durability reports.
