Observations after 8 days and 1,500 miles

... After 8 days and 1,500 miles...

1. The HEMI doesn't lack for power.

2. That's good, because you need that power to haul an extra gas station with you.

3. There's too much feedback about just how bad your gas mileage is. For the HEMI, they should really disable the MPG monitor, and cut out the tick-marks for every 1/8th of a tank.

5. That said, she is smooth. That's her posing in front of Neuschwanstein (King Ludwig's fairy-tale castle in Germany). Very comfortable to drive, and she just loves the open road.

Yours is female. How do you tell the sex?

Re: Observations after 8 days and 1,500 miles

Why didn't you get the diesel option available in Germany?

Re: Observations after 8 days and 1,500 miles

Cool rig. Rugged brown, but not a Summit? Or is that just a trick of the lighting?

Re: Observations after 8 days and 1,500 miles

It's the dark charcoal, and US specs-- the beauty of being American over here. I would take the diesel option if we had it!
