I think that is a major blunder on the part of Chrysler. They paid airfare , meals and accommodations for this very important launch and didn't include the administrator of the largest and most important Chrysler website out there?Dave said:Hopefully Chrysler will think twice about giving them access to the most important events in future... or am I just sour because we were not included?
I haven't read TTACs Cherokee article yet, but I feel they tend to be pretty fair. They've had great reviews of the minivans and like the 500 as well. Could also be the particular journalist as well.CarsandGuitars said:TTAC's reviews all read like whining from spoiled rotten kids that grew up with Lambo posters on the wall and dad putting on his driving gloves for a jaunt in his BMW or Porsche. They are pretty much the epitome of nothing is ever good enough cork sniffers mixed with phony wannabe "enthusiasts".
Both TTAC and Jalopnik seem to be defined by a writing style that's a product of a generation weened on South Park and Top Gear, beat over the head with premium marketing and then couched in a a smug self centered sense of entiltement.
Read this writer's recent nit picky Lincoln review. There was also a recent Avenger piece with a different writer that basically caused a revolt in the comment section.link3721 said:I haven't read TTACs Cherokee article yet, but I feel they tend to be pretty fair.

The Fast Lane had a review online yesterday, it was one of the YouTube links. They lauded the 9hp, super smooth etc etc.Erik Latranyi said:These are not the same vehicles driven months ago. This event was just held and this is one of the first reviews from it.
I hope the 9-speed was not cheapened too much from its ZF cousin.
Mr Source and I hardly ever agree on anything here, but I can't argue with him on this. That steering wheel stitch IS unacceptable even for pre production. (it is a steering wheel, hardly a new technology or something) And given the delay of the press launch one would hope the transmission software would be dialed in by now.Mr.Source said:Quality is the name of the game. weall know those were pre production vehicles, BUT we need more quality
