If you look through the entire Allpar site and look for errors.

Prove the error is an error.
Provide the proper and accurate information with backup to prove it.

Post it here.

Then you'll be entered into a drawing for a prize.

Decal
Patch
Shirt

Or maybe some other things that may become available.

Probably should make clear if typos count or not :)

Obviously the spirit of the contest is to find factual errors but, well, you know......

No there are no 'on purpose' errors.

Typos count.

Anything that you can see as an error, grammer, factual data 'wrong', formatting, anything that doesn't look right in the Allpar site which isn't 'right' is fair game.

Final decisions on grammar rest with the editor.
Forums don't count.
Other than that... oh, and only the first person to find something and report it here wins...

OK. I'll play!

This photo from the current feature on 1971 is mislabeled. The vehicle pictured is a '71 Road Runner. The bird head is even visible in the grille. B)

Isn't that a 'Road Runner GTX'? If so is it mislabeled?

From 1968 to 1971, the Plymouth Road Runner and GTX were separate offerings. Please view the photo immediately above the mislabeled one in the feature which does show a GTX. A '71 GTX is also pictured further down the page. The badging is clearly different. Later, in 1972, things changed with a GTX package available on Road Runner (mainly consisting of the the 440 4bbl) after the GTX model was discontinued.

OK, I've got one. This sentence is in the 2011 Caravan review.

"It seems that “dual control” doors that can be opened either manually or under power ended with 2007."

A more factual statement is: The “dual control” doors that can be opened either manually or under power ended with 2008. Beginning with the 2009 MY, the sliding doors are opened and closed under power when the exterior door handle is pulled. Manual operation is still possible from the interior however.

My backup is simply ownership. We own a 2008 T&C Limited and the doors are not power operated when the handle is pulled. My mother owns a 2009 GC and the doors are power operated when the handle is pulled.

It make sence that the VW would have that feature as well. I am glad they didn't give it stow-n-go.

Yes, the Road Runner was mis-labelled GTX! Oops. Fixed. (Cached version might still show for a while.)

Fixed 2011 review.

Got some nice American-made Allpar T-shirts being printed next week.

Again with the Caravan article:

"By defalt, the transmission is in a “sport” mode" text is directly beneath the Pentastar V6 picture

2011 Minivans Article:

The vans do not have "Autostick". The vans have Electronic Range Select, which allows you to choose lower gears or higher ones (IE starting out in 2nd).

1st allows you 1st
2nd allows you 1st and 2nd
3rd allows you 1st through 3rd
4th allows you 1st through 4th
5th allows you 1st through 5th
6th allows you 1st through 6th
"D" is 1-6

Also as from the owners manual:

To select the proper gear position for maximum
deceleration (engine braking), simply press and hold the
shift lever to the left (-). The transmission will shift to the
range from which the vehicle can best be slowed down.


Also if you look at the tour photos, note the photo of the banner on the front of the building with the Town and Country on it. The engine that's pictured below the Town and Country is really a 4.0L with 3.6L photoshopped on it.

Thanks, I'll update. As you can guess I didn't really use it much, just to keep the engine in a lower gear on the highway to experiment with the responsiveness at various rpms without kickdown. Funny about the banner. I also noticed the simple painting-out of Daimler while they away new signs! (A few plants did that -- since Cerberus was unwilling to. I'm hoping at some point Chrysler buys B*I*G signs like Ford has for their plants.)

I see a few bugs on the Dakota generational articles:

-On the navigation bar at the bottom, the "1997-2006 Dodge Dakota" link should be 1997-2004, and the 2005-2007 article is left out.

Posted Image

A correct set of articles for 1997 through 2011 could be:
1997-2004 Dodge Dakota
2005-2007 Dodge Dakota
2008-2011 Dodge Dakota

-On the 1997-2004 article, the 2nd image (of a post-crash Dakota) is of the 2005-07 model.
