Unfortunately I do not know much about newer cars but I can tell you that Dodge/Chrysler has had a LONG history of having BAD transmissions... They are all very bad. I also heard that new Dodge and Chrysler cars and vans had horrible front suspension problems (Ball joints/Tie rods wearing out at 25,000 miles)

And the brakes joel don't forget about those. Every 20,000 miles you need new pads and rotors because the rotors have warped and can't be "turned". GARBAGE they were garbage before Mercedes pulled them out of he hole and the entire time Mercedes owned them they were garbage. After Mercedes sold Chrysler and lost trillions guess what... Chrysler is still garbage.
