Whatever you do don't buy the 2.7L.
Ours just blew up after 50,000 miles.
If you don't beleive me do an internet
search for "Dodge 2.7 sludge", you will
see hundreds if not thousands of other
people complaining of the same thing at
even lower milage! The 2.7L has a
design flaw where the top half of the
engine overheats and causes oil to turn
to sludge, it makes it look like it
hasn't had an oil change in years even
if it has and they void your warranty
over it!
If the sludge wasn't bad enough, the
sludge screws with the timing belt
tensioners and loosens the timing belts
in a lot of cases too! Causing damage
to lifters and requiring thousands in
repairs! Class action suits have been

This engine needs a recall! Untill the little people start winning their lawsuits im sure dodge will do nothing about it, and has done nothing about it!
