- AC needs more spunk, tranny on 3.3l V6 tends to hunt
Purchased As New
This car is our first Mopar. Bought the 08 model in Dec07 from Manhattan Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge in NYC. They are a good outfit to deal with.
We had some AC issues in the summer of 08 with 2 blown hoses. In my opinion, the AC cycles too much and does not give you the nice arctic blast that I am accustomed to from most American cars. However it does seem to keep up with the heat load, even on the hottest and most humid days.
The 3.3l pushrod V6 has decent power, but my main complaint is with the 4 speed tranny that seems to want to downshift on even moderate grades at speeds over 70 mph.
Another complaint I have is that the package I bought has steering wheel mounted audio controls by no power outside mirrors, WTF?
If you are considering this car, definitely get the Stowngo seating. The seats disapear into the floor as if by magic and you don't have to deal with any heavy lifting and storage of unused seats. Fits a 4 x 8 sheet of plywood or sheetrock flat on the floor with all the seats down.
Gas mileage in the city blows, but I knew that would probably be the case going in. Hwy mileage is in the low to mid 20's at 70-75 mph, not bad. The 20 gallon fuel tank gives you 400 mi plus cruising range, nice. Since these cars are driven by so many soccer moms around town, a hybrid version would be nice, and probably sell like hotcakes.
For do it yourselfers, the engine compartment is roomier than the previous generation and the oil filter is situated vertically in the front of the motor and very easily accessed.
Overall, I would recommend this car. I paid in the mid 20's and though it was a great value.
