Ok I like the car but the problems just keep coming. first the brakes burn out way too quickly and the rotors warp too fast, it clunks a lot over bumps. I washed my car and guess what? I got wet, yes that's right, the way that chrysler made the windows. thank you chrysler I appreciated the extra shower. the sunroof slams up then down when I close my doors. now the main problem I hate that my car started making this very loud whirring noise where the bell housing attaches to the engine. if you guessed flywheel you are correct. now before that I smelled a burning smell which I always thought it was the brakes wearing out prematurely but no its the flywheel scrapping the engine or bell housing or something in there which causes this. I stopped at a stop sign and my engine just keeps revving until the good spot of the flywheel makes me go again. I almost crashed going backwards. I was on a hill, I lifted my front tires off the ground to see what was going on. I noticed that my car revs and then bangs into gear only at certain points but that whistling gives me a headache. Also after awhile the check engine light comes on and my anti lock brakes too, how I don't know (the anti lock light) I didn't even use my brakes for the past couple of days. now the flywheel is cheap to buy but expensive to put in. I looked at other websites besides this one and I saw something that made me even more furious. it seems that on this website a mechanic from a dodge dealer yes tha'ts right DODGE DEALER was being paid to keep his mouth shut. he said it himself. it also said that they were also making excuses that made the consumer pay more. now this was sick. they didn't care about the deaths they caused or injuries either. google it and you'll see this website. now I end this please people don't buy this car not even the new ones
