Yup, same here, it went ~160K and needed work on the front end (~$300) and the A/C compressor needed replacing so we donated the car and took the tax write-off.Ditto. I got an '87 Integra new and ran it for 13 years. When I sold it at 137,000 miles, the body was rotting, but drivetrain was in great shape. That was a great car.
As usual, your utter ignorance of the subject is exceeded only by the arrogance of your pontifications upon it.blah, blah, blah.... As usual, I see your lips moving, but can't hear what you're saying!
The speed limiter is for the tires. Stock sedans usually come with H- or V-rated tires, good for 130 MPH and 149 MPH respectively. If you had the nuggets, you would have found that out the fun way by now!
Note the significant oil staining on the driveway. Additional evidence of Dodge being a POS. Sure, they look nice, have improved in quality, but are still an inferior product. Sadly Chevrolet and Ford are not much better, the Japanese build a better product (Tundra and Titan).

And as usual, your arrogance, leads to reply without realizing that the vehicle you are talking about is A TRUCK. Not built for speed! And again YOUR ignorance, and generalization of a what tires Dodge puts onto their vehicles just shows your lack of knowledge...As usual, your utter ignorance of the subject is exceeded only by the arrogance of your pontifications upon it.
Translation: Dodge puts crap tires on its testosterone toys to keep costs down and owners from getting in even deeper over their heads.
Oh I will... And come winter, I'll wave as I pass by all the VW drivers digging out their cars so they can go anywhere...The GLI came with V-rated tires (along w/the Audi 6-speed transaxle) because it has an UNlimited top speed of 148. I upgraded to W-rated tires - for a reason.
Enjoy your limitations - they're there for YOUR protection!
Sport-oriented drivers will surely find pleasure behind the wheel of a GLI, as will those who measure performance satisfaction by miles per gallon. An Environmental Protection Agency fuel economy rating of 32 Highway/25 City and an electronically limited top speed of 130 mph confirm that power and economy can come in one package.
One thing I will say about my 2000 GTI -- with dedicated snow tires and traction control, it was excellent in the snow. Not as good as my 4Runner (which also has dedicated snow tires) but it really was quite good.And come winter, I'll wave as I pass by all the VW drivers digging out their cars so they can go anywhere.
A fellow I know commuted to MIT in his old F350. He was in several accidents where small japanese cars cut him off. After a while, he started painting little Japanese flags on the driver's door of his truck, one for each car that he totaled with his truckThen I think about the nightmare it would be to park one of those in Boston and I'm grateful for my small car.
Curious... 3 year 36,000 mile warrenty and every VW dealer I know provides loaner cars. Where's the expense in the first year?I have two guys I work with and both had Passats, both of them sold them after a year and bought Volvos because they were spending more money on thier VW's in repairs than they spend on thier boats.
