We see that Dennis Buterbaugh is doing a review on them. The Husband say that Dodge (Mopar=Nopower) has built nothing but the ugliest pieces of junk for decades and he hopes they have solved the problem

I've owned a couple of Chrysler products over the years and they are no better nor worse than any other car manufacturers products I've owned, including foreign.
Actually the most reliable vehicle I've ever owned was a VW Bug.

Chrysler had some good running machines in the 60s

As for any auto maker, longevity of a vehicle depends on maintanence. I was once told that 'the cheapest vehicle to own is the one you already have'.

I have a 94 Dodge Ram Diesel, bought it new, I've been told many times it still looks like new. People ask if I've had any trouble with it, I say NO, I'm the only one that drives it. 284,000 miles, 20 + miles to the gal.

Yeah, but can it haul the "big stuff" like a 5th wheel camper, or full cord of firewood? :P :P :P

The Rallye is a sharp looking car. Someone I know ordered one & they sent her daily emails of it's progress on the assembly line, including pics.

Just did it today, hauled approximately 6000 pounds of firewood in a trailer, no want for power.

~~Thats C@@L yeah, but makes no sense its more feel good BS look how much your car purchase means to us. I'd much rather have the time and money spent being sure it made right... food for thought , did you ever wonder what the exrta charge for dealer prep is about on new cars??? Ask your dealer or better yet your long time known saleman . Cars come in with parts they missed in assembly ,theyused to just put 'em on the floor in the back seat .not sure where anymore ,but the dealers responsible for installing such parts they missed... really made me feel good when i learned about that .

Cool. Just wanted to make sure you weren't one of those who buys a 1/2 ton PU thinking it is a toy that gets good gas mileage. Many people buy a truck with a "high speed" rear end which will get good gas mileage, but doesn't have the stuff to pull a piece of paper down the road. Sounds like you have a "hauler" with good fuel mileage.
