If the motor ever gets wet from running through a puddle and quits, Stelantis will probably deny repairing it under warranty.

Check out some of the warranty denials on some customers' "Trail-Rated" Jeeps that have had mud and water get into the alternators causing severe electrical problems throughout the entire vehicle. Stelantis denied coverage on the repairs claiming customer abuse.

Total scumbag company, in my opinion, and I would never buy a vehicle from them.

In news that should surprise nobody, the Dodge Challenger and Charger will be killed off by 2024. New eMuscle car will go on sale around that time. There will be several special editions in the next 24.

This aligns with the rumor that the Camaro will be killed off as well in favor of a EV coupe or sedan "muscle car" model.

The next Mustang is rumored to be a standard hybrid and with an optional EV model.

Many reasons

-Because they'd have to include 2 drums and a cymbal with each sale.

-Because then you would need to sell a Charger charger and that just gets confusing, like the Chevy SS.

-Because the NoVa didn't sell well in Mexico.

Thanks folks!
I'm here all week, or at least until my parents hot tub heats up...

I'd be good with that, since it was my first car (and only black car I've ever owned).

They could just program this into the pedestrian warning noise.

OK, you got a point there but they could just call it a Charger Adapter or Charger Plug
