Cheaply made vehicle
The transmission failed at about 12,000 miles. The dealer had the truck for about a month before it was repaired. It was not the dealers fault that it took so long to be repaired as Chrysler sent a new transmission to the wrong dealer. If I had not made several phones calls to the Chrysler warehouse to tell them where the right dealer was it would have been longer. The problem was the wiring to the transmission that caused it to fail. To clarify, the transmission would not go into reverse was the sign that something was wrong. Under the New Jersey lemon law I had a claim to get a new vehicle, but I opted not to do that as it would have cost me more money in the long run. The bottom line is Chrysler quality control at the factory level is seriously flawed to let such a failure occur. The truck is out of warranty now because of the time period-3 years- but I will tell you the truck is poorly made which reflects the difference in price between the big 3 truck makers- GM-Ford and Dodge.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
