If it is like any Dodge before it in the last 20 years it won't last long (Dodge trucks excluded). Every Dodge I have known in this time period has been junk.

True Story: In March I had to go to Tucson on Business. I rented (from Hertz) a brand new Dodge Challenger SRT (or RT, whatever the heck it was with the Hemi in it). It was bright Orange with black stripes. I was only going to be there 3 days so I figured what the heck...

I pulled out of the Hertz rental car lot on the airport. The road that leaves the airport goes in a straight line for many stop lights. I didn't use the car hard or do anything crazy. I just got in and proceeded to go to my business destination. I only got about 3 miles away. Multiple check engine lights came on and the car would not go over 30 miles per hour. I turned around and took it back before it died for good. And here is the punch line. It was a 2014 model with ONLY 2000++ miles on it. Complete garbage as far as I'm concerned.

I took it back to Hertz. They gave me an 2014 Mustang GT with the Coyote motor. The Mustang ran perfect the whole time I had it. No issues at all. The Coyote motor was cute but you really had to get it up in the RPM range to make her go. By the time you got it up there though it was bouncing off the rev limiter. It had an automatic transmission and although I had the traction control turned off it would not do a burnout. The stupid electronic transmission was doing something despite my best efforts to get it to roast the tires. Unfortunately the dang thing was smarter than me and would not let me have even a bit of fun turning the tires. But overall a MUCH better car than that dang Dodge.



I also owned a 1993 Dodge Intrepid. It was Motor Trends car of the year in 1993. It went through 4 A/C compressors before 75,000 miles and 2 transmissions. Total junk. I ended up trying to sell it and could not. In the end I donated it to a local charity and took the tax write off. Total junk.

If you want a Dodge I say... Buyer beware!
