Re: CarPlay?

I'm an Iphone user as are most of my family. One of the obvious issues that I see here is QNX. It's a Blackberry product and that could be an obstacle. I'm no raving fan boy of either product,...

Re: Canadian SRT Warranty Is done at 36 Months?

Chrysler does it because Canadians are too effen polite and take it.

If you want the 5 year comprehensive plan it lists at $5K and the best price I've gotten is $4K. It's all about money. There...

Re: 2014 SRT bugs and problems now all sorted?

My Experience:

Re: Is anyone else a little let down by the "anemic" feel of the key fob?

The new fob is fine. I don't even notice it. It sits in my jacket pocket. I've got bigger beefs about my SRT like poor fitting Body Moldings and Valences that are spotted with rust color.
