Why quote me? Your experience has no bearing on mine. I will toss out not only the entire line, but all FCA products. This was their 2nd chance after the Plymouth I owned back in the 80s.
He quoted you because of your ONE CAR bad experience and you advise people to not buy the car.
My Mom had a New 1980's Nissan and the tranny blew at 20 something thousand miles, why would I say not to buy a Nissan because of my experience with ONE car??
I worked with a guy who bought a New Rock Solid reliable Toyota Tacoma, his clutch went out at 6,000 miles, again I wouldn't say not to try another one. (yes he new how to drive a manual)
Back in 1999 I bought the wife a New Rock Solid Reliable HONDA Civic, the drivers side power window motor went out at just over 36,000 miles, I can't say all Civics did this and trash the whole car line, could I??
I'm on my 3rd Challenger, no major bad experiences with any of them.
My point is ALL car brands have issues with their models, to follow your train of thought means you may as not buy any car at all.
Go the Lemon Law route, I hope it works well for you.
