For the 5.7 L V8 (or any engine), how does driving it with a heavy foot (hard acceleration often and 4000+ RPM often) compared to babying the gas pedal and keeping RPM always below 2500, do to the transmission and engine (wear and tear).

Actually, 1 question would be do they have a fix for the leather dash issues?

Thanks again!!!
Ditto on both points, plus will the glue be upgraded for the rear window where it is affixed to the hinges?

Too, Consumer Reports says today that they're only testing the Durango V8 now because, "The Durango V6 will get a new eight-speed automatic transmission sooner than later." Does this mean that the 8-speed may be coming sooner than we had expected for the GC, as well, and if so only for the V6?

(2) For the V8, when to do the first oil change (out of an abundance of caution) then what interval and if synthetics are worth it and if so what interval for synthetics (along with type).
I would ask these two questions above.
(1b) And from downunder we dont have the same octane fuels. here is what we have.
91, 95, 98 RON AU=
87, 91, 94 AKI US
Wich is the best to use since we dont have 89?

(2b) And on the oil I can't find in Australia synthetic 5w-20 oil
can I use fuchs 0w-20 in our warm climate.

Re: ATTENTION: 2011 owners! PLEASE READ! Questions for the engineers?????

Is there any way to disable the loud beep when opening the power lift gate without cutting any wires or any hardware? It is terrible at 5:00am. I know that is has the pressure sensor so there is no need for the extra feature if you want to disable it. Yes it is a safety feature, but so if the seat belt beep and you can turn that off if you wish. If there is a code can he give it to us, again like the seat belt code.

The option to have the Quadra Lift automatically drop into Park Mode as soon as you put into Park?

Was the sloshing sound the only reason to replace fuel tank, or are there other long term issues with tanks without baffling? Could sediment get stirred up and clog pump or filter?

From the owner's manual:
Quote:
Engine Oil Viscosity 5.7L Engine
SAE 5W-20 engine oil is recommended for all operating
temperatures. This engine oil improves low temperature
starting and vehicle fuel economy.
Why is 5W-20 oil specified for the 5.7l engine? Is the thinner oil sufficient to protect my engine when driving in the heat of the desert? If so, why is 5W-30 specified for the 3.6 l?

I'm looking for engine protection and longevity, not potential better fuel economy.
