Let me enlighten you, then, since you're ignorant. The "C" in FCA stands for Chrysler - which used to have Plymouth under its umbrella of companies before they destroyed the brand.

Why did you have to drag the adorable (if not prone to rear-end overheating) Ford Pinto into your Plymouth/FCA bashing. It's ok to hate a manufacturer for your own personal reasons, but don't impune a model you never owned, just because other people couldn't figure out how to drive it without it bursting into flames. My Dad had 7 Pintos/Bobcats in the 70's and early 80's and not a one of them ever blew up. They were broke down all the time and we spent nearly every weekend working on them...but they never blew up.

Picked up my Go Mango GT this past Saturday and we were hit with a Northeaster yesterday, the car did not disappoint in the snow. The car feels very solid and I am definitely enjoying the ride. It's nice owning a Challenger that I can drive year round, and not worry about the weather.

Great timing. I've owed my GT for almost a year and have 38K miles on it with over 6K miles under snow/icey conditions without any issues. I've seen many cars & trucks get stuck or slide off the road and my Challenger drove like it was a normal day.

Good for you, man! You chose the right car. And with that color you’ll never have a problem being seen in a blizzard!

Oh, I see.You don't understand how subsidiaries or "umbrellas" as a simpleton would put it work. My mistake for taking you as someone with brains. Just some fruit for thought, with your dense logic since Dodge is crap so is Ferrari because they're under the same "umbrella", right? I will bow out and let you continue to be a irrational loon, enjoy.

Yes it was. I was very impressed in the way it took on the snow. No issues what so ever. It is a great every day driver. Who would have ever thought that owning a Challenger can be considered practical?

Lol! Yes, the color is a big difference from my white Challenger SXT Plus. I am loving the Go Mango.
