Re: Just turned 6k kms! So far almost flawless!!

At 2500 miles and 5 months the only time mine has been to the dealer has been to check for "disappearing needles" and to pick up parts.

Came with Towing Package, Uconnect, & "E".

Have added: oval steps, rear cover & mat, back up camera, OBD-II bluetooth, 7" Android ICS tablet, Mifi hotspot.

Considering a CAI, 180-185F thermostat (any sources for Pentastar ?), and body coloured grille.

Is perfect for my intended use & am averaging just over 20 mpg in mixed driving on 87 PON.

Re: Just turned 6k kms! So far almost flawless!!

Padgett, we must have got ours about the same time. Mine is 5 months old with 5K miles on it and no problems to report. I do have that sound on the highway that alot of other people are complaining about but haven't took to dealer yet because it doesn't make it all the time and I guarantee it won't when I bring it in. Gas mileage for my V6 has also been great, got almost 27 mpg's (hand calculated) two fill ups ago but only got 22.5 mpg's with this last fill up with an almost identical route and driving style.
