Summary:

A great SUV if you remember that all SUV's need to be loved

Faults:

Front suspension and shocks were changed at 63000 kilometers.

Rear, passenger side window motor does not work.

Check Engine light will "flicker" occasionally.

Oil pressure gage fell to 0 during hard braking at 64500 kilometers. This problem was due to not enough oil being added during last oil change (done at an authorized Chrysler dealership).

General Comments:

In general this a beautiful SUV with very unique features. A very comfortable vehicle which is fun to drive. Acceleration is good (please remember that it does weight over 2 tons).

Gas mileage is poor, but we are talking about a 5,9L. V8 engine.

I would recommend this car to anyone who loves a great ride and appreciates a good V8 engine. Just remember that as with all cars and trucks, if you take car out it, it will take car of you.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
