Review

I'll start by saying, I love this car! We purchased it new in November 2011. But, I have no confidence in the car. On the first day that we owned it, the trunk opened up while driving. We chalked it up to our inexperience with keyless system. Within the next few weeks, the car would not start, flashing all types of messages. A tow truck brought it to our local dealer. I am not automotive, but it was something with the wiring. Squirrels were blamed (yes, squirrels). Fixed it. A week later - no start, tow to dealer. This time the entire wiring harness needed to be replaced. Had to wait for parts. Now, it is in the shop with a transmission problem, jumps putting in gear, messages. To be cont..

Favorite Features

My husband loves the adaptive cruise control. We both love the power seats, heated and cooled, memory on the driver. Love the capless gas tank, push button trunk opening, automatic headlight dimming. Not to mention, remote start, heated steering wheel, sun/moon vista roof, voice command. We love all the bells and whistles on this car. The ride is smooth and comfortable.

Suggested Improvements

What is the problem with these electronic issues? We've had one go around with electronics. May be in the middle of the second one with transmisson wiring. Of course, it could be the transmission itself! 17000 miles and it's back in the shop. So disappointing.

OK, the automotive guy said it was another chewed wire. Where have these squirrels been hiding the last 30 years? But Chrylser had "recommended" replacing the transmission connector wiring anyway, so they did that also while they had the car. Frustration! Love the car but just not feeling all that confident in the reliability.

Don't allow any rodents to chew YOUR wiring... Place dryer sheets all over the car. Put up traps to trap the rodents.. Wiring issues due to squirrels is NOT the car or the Companies fault..
