Review

Loved this SUV for 4 years except for
having to replace the window motors 3
times. Then it hit 70,000 m. It's
been in the shop 4 times in 2 months.
Now spent over $4,800 in repairs in
the last 2 months. First the wiper
motors and fuel pump. Then a rebuild
of the transmission. Replacement of
parts in the exhaust system that
failed. Numerous other minor repairs.
Looking at another $1,500 to fix the
ABS system. Now hear there's problems
with ball joints. This is
ridiculous. All previous cars I
owned (not Chryslers) stayed in good
condition 10 years each. I am never
getting another Chrysler product.


Best Features

Third seat. Interior size. Cargo space. The smooth ride.


Worst Features

Quality and reliability. Any well made car should last 10 years with regular maintenance. Chrysler needs to be more reponsive to consumers and stand behind it's products.

The machine falls aprt at 70K miles,
new trans, re-sealed transfer case, and
now a speed sensor, I think! I'll never
buy a Dodge again.


Best Features

Look good, but all show, inder that its junk


Worst Features

Quality, Quality. You're need the 100,000 warranty on the new ones.

Review

Buy the extended warranty if you plan
on keeping this vehicle for awhile.
This isn't due to things breaking
frequently as much as it is the actual
cost of some items to replace. Great
styling and ride for an SUV. Lot's of
cargo room and good power with the
smaller V8. Infinity sound system is
awesome!! Ball joints have been
replaced 4 times @ $1000 per visit.
A/C problems started at 55000 miles and
dealership can't figure it out.


Best Features

Room, stereo and space.


Worst Features

Ball joints. Get rid of the overhead blower, it's in the way if your over 6'2" and you lose alot of headroom. No leg room in back seats at all.
