After 22,000 miles I have had zero maintenance or quality issues, only oil changes (which are $60 due to synthetic oil requirement).
Plenty of power with a nice throaty exhaust note and a 33 mpg overall average.
Forty mpg is routine at 65 mph.
The magazine writers who whine about turbo lag with this engine are describing gear/rpm/speed situations no sane driver would use, such as 1500 rpm/4th gear/30 mph.
Use 3rd gear at that speed (2000 rpm) and enjoy snappy response.
This car is a nice combination of comfort, economy, power and sporty handling.
Both front seats adjust up and down, a rarity for a low cost car.
Plenty comfortable for 500 mile days.
Big trunk, rear seat folds down, is wide enough for 2 people plus a child's car seat.
Nav unit is fast, easy to use, big screen.
Nice stereo say my kids.
Dodge needs to figure out how to smooth out the power delivery in this engine as it climbs up through the rpm band.
It is full of plateaus and slight pauses.
Waste gate control?
The multi-air valve control?
It doesn't affect the ultimate performance, just makes the engine feel unrefined.
Some exterior trim pieces line up poorly.
Not loose or anything, just not squarely lined up.
My car is one of the first ones built.
