People keep linking to this Ontario Street Car blog; until recently I've never heard of it, and it's got some pretty off-the-wall stuff that no one else seems to want to commit / comment on.

Anyone know the background behind it?

Pretty happy with my 5 speed. Did that before buying the first year run of a new car. Monte Carlo SS. V8 2006. Went thru 3 transmissions and finally a value spring broke and it started ticking. Sold it. Heard about the 8 speed coming to SRT but didn't want to be the one testing it. Heard so many good things about the 5 Speed NAG1 it being pullet proof. I rather have something thats reliable than something thats going to break down the road and i have to keep dumping money into it. Lucking for me that trans was under warranty before it broke. Not saying 8 speed is bad. I just wont be the one to get it first this time. )

I came across this site that lists the production updates for Chrysler vehicles. It shows that the 8-speed automatic (DFG) is scheduled to end production on 02/06/13. However, there is a different 8-speed automatic (DFL) that is scheduled to start production on 02/06/13.
