2018 Dodge Challenger GT Review



Quote:
The Dodge Challenger GT is a car that probably came about due to hesitation from General Motors and Ford.

So far, the two biggest of the American Big Three have yet to stick all-wheel drive into their pony cars. It’s not hard to imagine a few FCA higher-ups sitting around one day in early 2016 saying, “Chevy and Ford haven’t done an all-wheel-drive Camaro or Mustang yet, might as well do something like that,” before setting to work on what was assuredly the most straightforward research and development process the company had undertaken in years.

I bought a 2018 GT 12/2/18. It's been in the shop several times. The Unconnect system has been replaced - after much drama, many phone calls, threats and the involvement of two area managers. The instrument gauge and center EVIC still reboots randomly and they can't find the problem after 3 attempts and 12 days in the shop. My next stop will be the lemon lawyer.

Do yourself a favor and pass on this car.

Thanks. Two separate dealerships have tried to fix it and cannot. Patrica at Dodge Resolution says they won't replace the car or give me a refund. The next step is to turn it over to the lemon law attorneys.

That's it? Can't fix it. WTH! I know there are a lot of problems but they have to be able to tell you something......whole new head or program when they figure it out..........something. You have to do what you have to do. Let us know.
Good luck!!!

I HAVE seen people get their car replaced AND get $2K in upgrades off any lot. He still *****ed but......that is another matter. That is probably how he got in that spot. *****ing. Remember that.
