Do you have a Grand Wagoneer @MikeD1? I thought you had a Durango? Did you have mechanical problems with it?

Yes, 'had' a '23 DDSRT till about 2 hours ago, now on it's way back to the mothership !!

A never ending stream of issues beginning with the missing features, a continuous string of stuff breaking + 2 dealerships unwilling to fix anything even after proding from the corporate level (Jenkins CDJR & Plaza CDJR). I'll be posting a thread later today or tomorrow about the whole thing now that I have cashed the check ;).

I loved my '18 R/T, but the '23 build was :poop:

Finally. They seem to never be in a hurry to take it back.

Congratulations, you got it done.

It's nice to see an unbiased review from someone that knows cars. His repair channel is outstanding.

He did a great one on Toyota's V-8. Wait 'till you see this thing:

People sure do put a lot of miles on that Toyota 5.7 V8, can't watch that video until later but I have one in my Lexus so I can't wait to see what he says.

I don't know what that means. Old guy, not computer savvy.

No - like 500k+ miles. It's considered a much better engine than the Dodge 5.7

Have no experience with either one. But the Ram 5.7 I had ran just fine.

So there.

5.7 is cheap and plentiful anything with the Toyota v8 costs twice as much
