    So many of the videos talk about "taking the family to Grandma's" or "Going for groceries".

    I have 2 young girls (2 & 4) and they'll be shuttled all over in my Charger Hellcat once it gets here. It'll be my daily driver and I'll have 2 matching carseats in the back.

    How many people out there will be using the Charger for daily driving and how many will be shuttling kids around???

    One kid (2) currently. She's a big fan of my Jeep SRT8. It's going to be a blast to see what she thinks of the Charger.

    It will be my daily; however, I work from home and thus do not do much driving; < 1 mile/day on most days.

    It'll be my daily, although like noboost4you, I often telecommute. I have a couple of teenagers -- they're the reasons I wanted a sedan.

    HAve you seen where those matching carseats are available for purchase? I've seen them in videos but no where to buy them...

    The reason I am picking the Charger over the Challenger is four doors. I have 5 kids ages 5 to 13, and the Charger will be my daily driver. Wherever I go, I seem to always have a couple of kids with me.

    Same reason here. I'll use it for daily use, taking kids to school, wife in front - golden retriever in back with kids.
    But no one will drive it - only me. The wife gets the Toyota Corolla

    Is the in-car wifi something you get from the dealer? Dodge direct?

    Yep, just as Hellcat1 said. When you get your car and you are programming your UConnect, You can purchase the wifi. I would recommend setting up your My Dodge account, if you haven't already and downloading the app. That way when your car gets here you just plug in the email address and it links it all together;)

    I am the original owner of a 2005 Dodge Ram SRT10 now with 207,000 miles. It has been my daily and driver and now I'm looking for a new one. I have a six year old and a ten year old (as well as a wife and Great Dane). If it gets tight in there she will have to stay home (the wife that is). My kid is almost more excited about the car than I am (almost). The day I told him I ordered one you should have seen the look on his face.
