2015 Dodge Viper GT: Speed-Adjusted Volume Doesn't Work

by Travis Langness, Social Media Editor on September 16, 2015

2015 Dodge Viper GT

The "Speed Adjusted Volume" in our long-term 2015 Dodge Viper doesn't work. Well, it works, but just not the way I want it to. This feature turns ups the stereo volume as vehicle speed increases, compensating for road noise.

It does that part just fine. But if you want to turn the feature off, the Viper is disinclined to acquiesce to your request.

When the feature is turned on, it compensates for road noise well. Problem is, it does the same thing in the "Off" setting. So even with the setting disabled, the stereo still lowers the volume when you come to a stop, then increases it when you get going again.

Whether I'm stopped at a light or cruising along Pacific Coast Highway with the windows down, I like my music loud. This feature positions a big, annoying rain cloud directly over that parade.
