Welcome, congrats !!!

Your issues are normal and will sort out over time, cars are so smart and need time to settle in to work proper.

Heat or cold weather adds to the show for sure.

Just Grin and bear it, IT WILL get better !! LOL

Imagine my 171 mile barn find 2014, something everyday pops up...……………..

Perhaps common, but not normal I have had zero issues with my 2016, 12,000 miles (knock wood).

U live in the perfect state for yours, we do not.


I have nests daily to contend to, insane levels of dirt, tree sap and God knows what hitting paint.

Had 4 chewed wires last week on this car already !!!


Just saying, cars that sit in the wild can have issues that a garage car will never see...……………...

A couple things that help me deter mice since I live alongside woods.

Bounce dryer sheets.

Mint soaked cotton balls. (Keep mine in old medicine containers without the lids.

Bucket of water with a "walk the plank" sort of mouse trap.
I've caught several this way.

Never said it was, BUT every car has issues one way or another.

From the guy who fixes the car the owner said it NEVER made a noise...………….

Mice. Great... One more thing to worry about! We usually get a lot of them in our house in the winter. I really hope they don't decide to make a nest in my Challenger. Last winter they made a huge one in my gym bag when I went on vacation. If I go out of town, I'll be trying out some of those ideas to keep them away. A least it's my daily driver so it won't usually be sitting.

Thanks to everyone for making me feel welcome!


A quick Top Ten Reasons Why I Love My Challenger Vs. The 2018 RAV4 Hybrid I Traded In:


10. Not getting pulled in front of at every intersection


9. Super cold A/C


8. Ability to merge onto the highway


7. Less trips to the gas station with the huge tank (really, I was so annoyed that I got a hybrid to save gas and ended up going to the gas station constantly because I usually only put in 8 gallons)


6. Feeling waaaay more in control of the vehicle


5. No more stacking up the groceries in the trunk


4. Speed tests


3. No possibility of being asked to carpool other people's kids


2. No more screaming kids (they love it too)


1. LOOKING AND FEELING AWESOME!!!!
