'06 vs '07 -SRT

Is there any real difference between an '06 & '07 srt 8? Some say the 1st year of something is the worst to get. I know my '05 ltd has had a few issues, so was wondering about these.

Thx

Re: '06 vs '07 -SRT

Not really. Like you said, it's the first year. I've seen lots and lots of 2007 SRT8's. maybe it's because of production totals?

If I had to choose, i'd go for the newest possible.

im only saying this cause i also own a 2005 5.7 WK as well as my 2010 SRT8 WK. i only use my 05 in crazy weather but i have to say that i severely hate the navigation system in my 05 cause of the knobs and small prints on the screen. it gets annoying. I say this coming from a touch screen navigation unit found in 08 and up.



EDIT------------ when i said navigation system, i meant the whole MYGIG in general. its all the knobs to control anything on the radio. nothing is just pressed once... thats annoying even for radio. Small text size on the screen wasnt just meant for navigation. i just realized you have a 05 as well- so u know exactly what im trying to say here ahahha. face palm in the second degree*

Re: '06 vs '07 -SRT

To be honest ,I've never had or even used a vehicle nav system, ever. I love my current 6 disk for traveling - I listen to a lot of audiobooks. Thanks for the heads up.

Re: '06 vs '07 -SRT

Had my 06 since 07 it has 62k on it and all I have done is oil changes. I beat the crap out of it every time I get in it too LOL.
