Re: New Car and Driver Article

Great article, I like the sarcasm. Agree with the point about the exhaust.

Re: New Car and Driver Article

$46,000 starting price? I would think it would be more... interesting. Why is this article talking about fuel efficiency? I bitch about my 4.7 mileage but there is no way I will when I get my SRT in fall.

Re: New Car and Driver Article

yup if you own a grand cherokee SRT8 and it's your DD by choice, you give up your right to bitch about gas prices.

like guys who bitch about the military - yet they reenlisted... no bitching for you sucka!

Re: New Car and Driver Article

I don't think I would buy an SRT8 as a daily driver unless I drove less than 10k miles per year. As a distance vehicle it doesn't make any sense.

The darn thing should still get 20mpg on the highway if babied. Almost every full size truck can pull that off.

Re: New Car and Driver Article

I can't believe that a Masserati is going to be built in Detroit! If that's not an example of a global economy, then I'm stumped

EVERYONE talks about fuel in journalism.. it's a required part of the trade. I say talk about it more, it'll just scare all the pu**ies away and then there'll be more SRT8s for the rest of us!

Re: New Car and Driver Article

That's the first one I seen without a cover across the front end. That can't be the new one doesn't look to have a scooped hood or ground effects. Looks good but...........

Re: New Car and Driver Article
