I went from a 2006 Honda Odyssey (3 steering racks in 20,000 miles was 3 too many) to the RT. The cargo volume is not quite that of the van but it is good. Four guys and golf bags are handled with ease. The gas mileage to date (5500 miles) is one mile to the gallon worse than the Honda. The fun to drive factor is approximately 8.5 out of 10. If you have to drive a wagon this is the one that will make you smile. I can only imagine how much fun the SRT8 must be to drive. I am already planning some tweaks to the engine and suspension because the chassis is just so good that it begs for more power and better spring rates. This really is a great platform, hats off to the engineers at Dodge
The interior passenger space, the Hemi,the brakes, good gas mileage for a vehicle this size with 340 hp. The seats are quite comfortable. The Mercedes sourced rear wheel drive and multi link rear suspension handle very well.
Stiffer spring rates and softer shocks. Throw away the Continental tires which even the dealers call junk. Upgrade the interior plastics. Mute points since this fabulous example of what can be built in North America, has been axed by the bean counters.
