Re: Another review

That review was not well communicated...they have 2 reviews and as most they make negative comments ie...it only gets 18 HWY and they said they got 4.5 regular driving city hwy...it takes 4-5,000 miles before BEFORE these hemi engines break in completely...I've owned 3-SRT8's you should get 19-20 hwy over time @ 70mph cruise on and fuel saver kicked in.

They say it wanders on the hwy never tracks straight wanders...that's because there is TOO MUCH air in the tires!! that causes that when they track test these SRT8's the air is increased to 60PSI for track conditions, I've been to SRT8 driving experience 3 times seen it and driven these cars many times at high sppeds.

He complains about the hard plastic areas and how the center console is plastic for cost cutting measures another MORON comment go look at a BMW or Porsche it has the same and costs 2/3 times more...

I could go on & on the point is Dodge / Jeep will never make these BIASED morons happy no matter how much they improve these vehicles.

My take...this rig is a serious performance vehicle SRT8 has taken this to a new level of performance and refinement NEVER seen in the companies history, which is why I bought one!!!!

Re: Another review

I think it was great unbiased review.

I really liked this part:
"...Hold the skinny pedal down until you think you're going to die, wait longer, then jump on the brake pedal and make those six-piston Brembo calipers strangle the giant 15-inch front rotors..."

Re: Another review

The silver looks great. I like the black as well, but it hides the lines too much. A color choice would be very, very tough going on photos alone. I guess there is not much of a chance for a dealer to have a Silver, Grey and Black units pulled up side by side...
