My 2006 Daytona blew up on the freeway. Heard a noise, noticed an odd smell and lost power. Pulled off the freeway and had it towed to the local dealership. End result was it needed a new engine. NO assistance from Chrysler at all after 4 attempts. Final diagnosis was 'assembly failure'. Surely not the owner's fault and I'm someone that gets my car dealer serviced. Extremely disappointed. Over a month later (took that long after delivery of 2 engines to the dealership; first one was bad) and a large rental car bill I drove the car and the engine light came on. Yep, catalytic converter next. I was able to take it to my service dealership (local) and they were able to get assistance. I hope no one else had this kind of experience with Dodge/Chrysler because we drive these cars because we love them. Waiting for the day Dodge/Chrysler acknowledges that this was their problem and provides a refund for all of us that paid out of pocket to get their vehicle running again.
I have a name for the 3 new mods...............Druken Purple Pirates!!!

Sorry to hear....you can get a 5.7 longblock for $2000.
How much do you think the labor would be on something like that?
