Most recent consumer reviews



I always had Japanese vehicles and this was my first American car, I liked the appearance and comfort for the family. The vehicle was pre certified from the dealership with 15k. Ive never had a vehicle that had so many electrical problems/ failures. Dodge has a horrible unreliable can-bus system that plagued it with issues every couple of months { issues began at 22k - 97k } At a milage of 60k { Proper service/ maintenance } The right side cylinder head needed replacement { rocker / cam failure ? } thankfully I had purchased extended warranty. I had the battery's replaced 6 times for all electrical issues { battery light on/autostart }. Service technicians and managers always said it was the battery { They were clueless/ probably just reset all the modules }. Beware of dodge they look nice but do your research/forums and you'll be surprised with all the complaints. It will leave stranded when least expected. We Sold the vehicle and we purchased a 2022 Acura RDX { Luxury , sporty , RELIABLE and electrically simple }.


The Vehicle I needed for my Family & DJing

This vehicle is spacious which is what I needed for my children & for when I sometimes DJ on the side & take them with me, the seats are extremely comfortable & it rides like a new car, my Family & I love this vehichle!


Car is awesome

This car has met all the needs I want. For it being used it was in great condition! We needed a third row and it has heated seats!
