A good car
Cons: powerSomewhat under powered but a good utilitarian piece of equipment
NIce truck, it handles well and love the HEMI
Cons: The seats are a bit stiff.Overall I really like my truck, a few problems with power windows, the shocks have needed replacing and tune-up somewhat pricey because the HEMI needs 16 plugs as opposed to the normal 8.
best SUV by far
Pros: DrivetrainWhat a great SUV. Limited Edition features 4.7V8 Quadra Drive II drivetrain, ~18MPG and willl go through ANYTHING! Rides so smooth and quiet, LOVE this vehicle
Cons: TransmissionThe transmission is terrible. I have had periods when it shifts so hard that it almost throws you out of the seat. Dealer says this is normal.
Pros: Shotgun power
Cons: tough to find run flat studded snows
Advice: drive it, you must experience the never ending power.....nothing like itThe SRT-8 is truly a remarkable vehicle. I have previously owned the Porsche Cayenne Turbo and must say the Hemi charged SRT-8 is a much more exhilarating. The SRT-8 does not have the same quality of interior workmanship that the Porsche has, but it out handles, accelerates, and out brakes it. If you are a true driving enthusiast like myself, this car is a better car for the money.....hands down. Don't think of this car as an SUV with a big engine.....its more like a jacked station wagon on steroids.
Pros: Motor and GPS
Cons: Back seat. (I never use it)
Advice: Try the car for a dayThis Car is the europeen 3.0 CRD V6 diesel motor with 210 HP and 510nm (The motor is the same as Mercedes ML320). The motor feels very strong att every RPH. It feels stronger than my 2001 Jaguar XH V8 with 290 HP. The road holding is very good. I can not find any negativ to say about this car.
Pros: The outside apperance
Cons: seat material
Advice: if you can not buy the limited with leather seats or if you do not want to purchase seat covers do not buy this vehicleI love how it drives but the quality of the interior is lacking. The seats spot whenever anything drips on them even if it is condensation from a cup or rain drops. I am big on appearence so this was a major let down. The seats are nearly impossible to clean because they spot so badly. I have had them scotch guarded but it has not made a difference. I love the appearance of this vehicle but I am very dissapointed that they would be material of such low quality on the seats.
