No offense to people like Brampton Builder or ResumeSpeed, but we need somebody like DodgeCares with corporate access on this forum (see ChargerForums and DodgeForum). Over a year and 230 pages of speculation (even parsed with interesting facts and ideas) and we're still in the dark, surprised when someone heard about the issue and pondering whether to buy an automatic, or a Challenger period. I brought the timing chain up to my salesman during last month's test drive too and he had no idea what I was talking about; 20 year-old kid, though, and you really can't trust that they'll tell the truth anyway.
I did buy mine in auto, only drive it in AutoStick for now, and plan to disable the MDS... but unbelievably we still don't know for sure whether that's even the solution. Beyond frustrating but we shouldn't be at each other's throats, questioning our individual car choices or MDS use: the ball is in Dodge's court.
