I agree, this car is garbage. I got one as a rental (I know most are "beat" by previous owners) but this thing has problems from the get go that I noticed just from a design standpoint. First, I had the 2012 4cyl version in automatic. This thing is SLOW. And by slow people I mean it. I have a 2010 Kia Soul in manual back home and compared to the Chrysler it's a race car. Next, there's little niggles little things like no bluetooth in the base model. The steering wheel also sucks in this car as it's too slippery for one handed operation in tight space. I'm I'm a tall person at 6'4" and this car was uncomfortable for me. Despite being a 4door, there was just no room for my legs in the furthest position. Stereo is good, I will give it that. Buttons on the back of the steering wheel are not for sport shifting, they just change the radio and other garbage settings. Maybe I had it on the wrong function. Lastly, just as I had merged on the FWY to return my rental at the airport, I noticed the engine was too loud and checked the tach. IT WAS RED LINING AT 7,000 in first gear. In short, my tranny just stopped working (I was in Reno in 100F heat) and I had to limp the car back to the airport on surface streets. For my money, my Kia Soul runs circles around this car in every way. The blasted keys were huge too and didn't fit in my pocket well. Everything about this car is dismal.Report it
