I can't believe there isn't a class action suit going
After a driving this care 2.5 hours/day for a few days, my back started to ache. I put in an Obusforme, which helped considerably. Then my right hip started aching mildly, and I thought I must be getting old. When I reached the point of limping, I thought I must have developed a serious medical problem. Bone cancer in my hip came to mind. I finally realized the problem was with the driver's seat. It is designed with a ridge of foam on the right side, which drives the femur into the hip joint. I've tried levelling the seat by stuffing towels under the Obusforme, but nothing seems to help. I want rid of this car.
I drive 1000+ hwy km every week, and my fuel costs with this four cylinder car are much higher than with my 6 cylinder Taurus.
I'd been warned about Dodges having problems with heating and cooling, but had to learn for myself. The fan doesn't kick in until I'm on the highway, so I'm scraping my windshield, working the wipers, and using a towel to keep the condensation cleared. I have no choice of which I'm aware, until I can get it in for servicing, and hope that this can be fixed.
My first mistake was in buying a four cylinder car. It's my first four. I've owned 6's and 8's, and appreciate performance when I need it.
My second mistake was in buying a Dodge, in spite of warnings.
I will say that it has been reliable. Will I survive the hydroplaning and ever walk normally again? Not with this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
