Fastest piece of junk on the road

The radios in these vehicles - all Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep products - are defective from the factory. They fail, making the navigation system, sound system, and backup cameras stop working. The dealerships can't fix them, Dodge does not provide working parts. All they do is keep sending you home with a broken car month after month until you finally sell it in disgust.

5.0

I bought my dream car.

It’s a 10 out of 10 in every aspect. Couldn’t be happier with the car and the deal I was given. I found exactly what I was looking for.

GT AWD

The V6 AWD offers 0-60 in under 7 seconds, the 1/4 mile in approx 14.5 seconds +/-, smooth quiet ride between 40-90 mph on the highway with no problems passing or merging, combined city/highway MPG at approx 23. The drive quality is very good. The car performs best between 30 to 75 mph as it is not especially quick from 0-30 mph If these numbers/features will not satisfy your needs foe either sound or speed then spring for the RT, Skat Pack or Hellcat but once you start spending $$ on the higher trim levels you have many options from many car companies that offer nice performance. Some basic electric cars can now do 0-60 in less than 5 seconds
