There are not enough characters allowed on this to describe my distain for this vehicle.
Engine malfunction light came on in 200 miles. It is a faulting oil pressure sensor, they replaced and the light is still coming on. They are waiting for a software update that they "hope" will fix the problem.
Computer sometimes prohibits the car from accelerating over 4000 rpms. No fix. They don't know what is wrong. Again hope for a software fix. This is a real safety concern to me.
In cold weather the battery light dings and flashes on the dash annoyingly, again they hope a software updated can fix it.. We are now going through the lemon law process. I refuse to pay over $18k for a broken new car.
We love the styling and the uconnect system.
The seats are mounted way too high. I am 6'1" and with the seat all the way down my head is right near the roof, If I wear a baseball cap and look up the bill hits the roof. The lumbar support is not adjustable and its not low enough. I suggest that Dodge tests a vehicle completely before sending them out to the world. They didn't even have parts available for this car when I needed the oil sensor. I have driven many manual transmissions from hotrods to semi trucks and this is by far the worst shifting vehicle I have ever driven.
the mechanical failure is a huge concern. Thanks for sharing your experience.
However, regarding the position of the driver seat, the lack of headroom and how the manual transmissions shifts, wouldn't a test drive be able to provide enough feedback before the purchase?
