As an update not even 2 years later, this car has turned into a huge disappointment. As I type this, my Hemi orange Challenger is at the dealer for the third time in three months. It began with an electrical problem that I thought would be fixed due to a battery & ground cable recall. Before that could be done, I noticed two rust bubbles on one of the wheel openings (this ended up being my second dealer trip). My car sits in the garage and is driven around 4K miles/year. It doesn't see bad weather. Fortunately, the corrosion warranty covered the repair. My reliable old Durango that does get driven in bad weather along with a 1991 Dodge Daytona I own have not rusted like this. Back to the electrical problem, the dealer replaced the battery and apparently installed a new ground cable. All was well for a couple of weeks and I was set to take a trip on a Thursday. Wednesday evening I input the destination into the navigation system so I would not have to do it early on Thursday. Since I had not run the car in a couple of weeks, I cranked it up to be sure it would start. No problem. About 8 hours later when I was set to leave, it was dead- totally. No power whatsoever. I was able to hook up a small charger under hood so I could get the key out (dumb design #1, #2 is that there is no way to open the trunk with the key to get to the battery if the battery is dead), and then jumped it with my Durango, only to find the radio completely inoperative. All fuses were good, and the car restarted on its own. I couldn't make the trip w/o navigation so it was canceled. After pulling the negative cable for 30 minutes, all was operational again. The car went back to the dealer and I learned they cannot duplicate the problem, so I'll pick it up again next week. I bought this car new and now regret doing so. I thought I'd own it for the rest of my life, but I'm now planning to sell it. It's apparent Dodge does not make vehicles like the good old Durango anymore.Report it
