I just bought #493 a few weeks ago. It's my first brand new car, and first Dodge. About 780 miles on it so far. I made a 300 mile trip in it last week and to my surprise it showed 23mpg as advertised. Absolutely love the car except for one thing- 5th gear synchro is starting to act up. Any moderate to fast shift up or down and it grinds going in. I haven't even slapped thru the gears hard yet! I hope it is just a fluke, and NOT an ongoing problem that needs fixed repeatedly due to poor design :disgust:

you do know that 5th gear is one of the overdrive gears .75 to 1 and 6th is .5 to 1 using 5th will keep you rolling hard into the upper mph :thumbsup:

Welcome to the forum.

You should break that bad boy in and go to Challengerfest2 with us.



I'd love to- but I work 3rd shift with Mon/ Tues off. No vacation time till next year :(

About the most I could do is roll with ya from St Joe to KC... if I'm not workin OT.
