They actually say at the end of the video that Dodge said this was a known problem and there was indeed a software patch to fix it. If they kept sending out press cars knowing this, which appears to be the case, someone does need a boot to the pants.Enough excuses!
Why is the first reaction by some to always give this company a pass?
Do you all know that these vehicles have been on the ground it the US since January?
What was the Dodge team doing ? Taking selfies?
How many times do we see delay after delay of product only to hear the same chorus (they are taking time to get it right)? That chorus has so much egg on their face that they are drowning in it! ...and eggs are damn expensive!
Thank God this is the last FCA derived product (other then the Maserati Folgores). I had hoped they could pull off one vehicle launch without problems, but they could not even do that.
If they actually knew of this problem and did not fix it, then they deserve to shut down.
If they are lying and did not know about this problem and just use the "software patch" bull-poopies again to buy them time, then they deserve to shut down.
After the constant problems with the Pacifica PHEV and other software/hardware problems with the 4xe, you would think they would have these things dialed-in......and it is not even the hybrid!!!!
I am ranting. It is 100% inexcusable to give this vehicle to the press.
