    I agree as well especially since those are the oldest models in the lineup. They are also really big sellers so that helps with the dependability ratings a lot. The Cherokee was not a very smooth launch with the 9sp troubles but the Renegade was smoother but still is having some 9sp teething troubles.

    Like I said above, quality needs to be the main focus not speed of sales. But since marketshare is what car companies are really worried a out, I am not confident quality will be the main focus IMO.

    JD Powers Initial Quality Study 2016:

    "U.S. Domestic Automakers Show Strong Improvement: For just the second time in the 30-year history of the study, U.S. domestic brands collectively have lower problem levels than all their import counterparts combined. All three U.S. domestic automakers post year-over-year quality improvements. The “Detroit Three” achieve a combined average of 103 PP100, improving 10% from 2015, which is double the improvement rate of the import brands at 106 PP100. The last time U.S. domestic brands outpaced imports was in 2010, when they held a 1 PP100 advantage (108 PP100 vs. 109 PP100, respectively)."​

    "Chrysler and Jeep are the most improved brands, each reducing the number of problems by 28 PP100 from 2015."​

    Quality is not the focus? Jeep and Chrysler both beat the average... an average that increased 10% from 2015.

    Man...been watching and reading reviews of the new Sentra SR Turbo and Hyundai Elantra Sport Turbo. If only the Dart could have survived- a little more refinement and a Hurricane engine and it still would have been competitive. Hate to say this but both the Sentra and Elantra turbo's look like a compelling alternative to my Dart. Never gone foreign before but this may be my first time. FCA has about 14 months to get something on the market or perhaps a sporty small SUV to make me consider staying.

    And you still see a ton of them on the road around these parts (NW Ohio).

    What if they surprised us all and gave it a dose of original Neon styling for the US.

    Loved mine--only sold it cause my newlywed wife couldn't drive stick and we needed to have interchangeable cars.

    As a Gen X-er, I found this to be hilariously funny and down right depressing at the sime time.

    Can you imagine Dodge trying to re-release an ad campaign like this today in today's "PC" world. I am remember I was a senior in high school when this debuted and all my friends talked non-stop about it. Probably the best ad marketing to the specific group that car was marketed to ever!

    You would not believe how many first generation neons I have seen at local race tracks still running well and actually winning races.

    One of our local Mopar group members, posted some pictures of a Neon he took from Dubai. I thought I would share...
