Horrible 2.7L, steering design, looks are definitely deceiving!
The 2.7L engine blew up at 35,000 miles due to sludge. I believe it was due to coolant entering the engine creating sludge. I was told by the dealer that it was my fault, although I changed the oil every 3,000 miles with Mobil1. I had to pay $7500 to replace this engine.
I was shocked to find many others also being blamed and having the same problems. There are complaints all over the internet and many NHTSA complaints about this engine. I was even more shocked and amazed when I found websites about the problem.
Steering began clunking at about seven thousand miles where it would also wander, which I found is fairly common due to suspension design. This also makes me angry.
I thought I've driven junk in my life, but never experienced anything like this with a well kept car with any other.
The only thing I can really compliment Chrysler on is the interior roominess, design and looks of the vehicle, which are all top notch.
If this vehicle didn't have such a problematic 2.7L engine and steering/suspension, it would have and could have been absolutely perfect. It's too bad.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
