Dodge sucks.

My 23 month old $45,000 Dodge Challenger is still broken, even after three visits to the dealer for repair. They told me it would be done by Saturday, but no dice.

I am not happy.

Late to the game on this, but isn't there some owner-operator setting (hopefully found in the owner's manual) to disable this?

I mean not EVERYONE wants the windows to crack half an inch upon entry.

I'm the owner of an '08 Silverado, and there's a lot of bells and whistles that I have disabled/modified from default.

And I feel for ya. Other than wearout items, the only thing that's actually broken on this truck in 175K miles is a fuel tank vent valve.

No. It is my understanding that this feature was added due to windshields cracking from overpressure when the door is slammed. I guess they are pretty airtight.

I gave up on American made cars about 15 years ago. I've owned Toyotas ever since and have been very happy.

They do require maintenance, but they don't break a lot. There's a difference between maintenance and repairs. One you can schedule, the other leaves you stranded, cursing the manufacturer, the dealer, and everyone in between.
