The carpet is not in very good condition. We had the AC worked on a couple years ago and it may just need charging but I can't say for sure. The tires have 5/32 in tread on them and the spare is like new. The seat belts for the rear seats have been removed. The upholstery is all good. There is a small bed build in the rear that can be removed and the rear seat & bucket seats reinstalled. Also, built in storage under the bed area."
This is a 1997 Dodge 2500 Maxi Van with a V8 5.2 Liter Engine. It has a 128" wheelbase. The tires have about 5/32" of tread on them and the spare is new or like new. The interior is in decent shape with the exception of the carpeting and the fact that the rear seat belts have been removed. It had a radio and cassette player but no CD player. It is in good shape and we are only the second owner of this vehicle. It was originally in Florida so does not have a history of rust which you often find with vehicles from up North. We used it for taking trips and camping out. There is currently a bed built in the back (for shorter people) that does not include a mattress. There is built in storage under the bed area. We have the rear buckets and bench seats and they can be reinstalled, depending on what the vehicle will be used for. The body is in good shape and there is a built in power converter that comes in handy when traveling. We have not have any mechanical problems with it and have thoroughly enjoyed driving it. We still plan to travel but probably will not be doing any more camping out.

Striving for improved fuel economy, we already knew that Chrysler will begin using a nine-speed automatic transmission in some of its new products this year, but what we haven't known is that volume at which this gearbox will be used. According to Bloomberg, Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has been quoted as saying that the automaker expects to sell close to 200,000 units equipped with this new transmission in 2013. Those gear-rich trannies will be spread out across three models, consisting of the redesigned Chrysler 200, the still-unnamed Jeep Liberty replacement and the Dodge Dart.

This transmission should play a pivotal role in making Chrysler vehicles more competitive in their respective segments. Just for comparison, one of the Dart's key competitors, the Toyota Corolla, still uses a four-speed automatic, and a previous report indicates that the next-generation 200 could get up to 38 miles per gallon on the highway, which is better than most non-hybrid midsize sedans on the market. Marchionne says that the new Jeep model is expected during the second quarter of this year, but there is no word as to when the new 200 or nine-speed Dart will debut, but clearly Dodge would like to have the transmission in its compact yesterday. As for that volume figure, it definitely doesn't seem out of reach since the Dart, Liberty and 200 combined for a total of more than 225,000 units in 2012.
How many more gears can we expect in future cars? Probably not many more, since the CEO of transmission-builder ZF, Stefan Sommer, previously stated that nine speeds was the "natural limit" for transmissions.

"This is a car that most brands would never bring to market." - Tim Kuniskis
Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis had reason to be confident, perhaps even a bit cocky at the reveal of his brand's newest halo car, the 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. As he said simply, it's the "quickest, fastest and most powerful sedan in the world."
Chrysler is issuing a recall for the 2009 and 2010 Ram 1500 and Dodge Dakota pickup trucks due to improper installation of the rear axle pinion nut. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 44,300 trucks are affected by the recall, and there have been 12 confirmed incidents including one crash.
The issue on both trucks is that the pinion nut is loosening on some trucks due to a lack of thread adhesive, and it is causing the rear axle to lock up resulting in loss of vehicle control. NHTSA's recall notice says that eight incidents occurred at speeds over 35 miles per hour and most also exhibited driveshaft failures as well since the loss of the pinion nut would cause the gear to separate from the driveshaft. In one complaint, the driveshaft separated from the rear axle and punctured the gas tank.
Chrysler will begin sending out recall notices to affected owners in November, but scroll down to see the official NHTSA notice.
