majestic: Speed senstive volume control is new for Chrysler? My 2006, just above base model F150 has that.
majestic: Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: I work for a Chrysler dealership, and I own the 2013 Dodge Dart (SXT with the tech package). The sound system has some pretty cool stuff (like a volume adjuster that automatically increases the volume based on RPM to keep engine noise down) if you play around with it, but the user interface is bulky as crap.It's very clearly designed by marketers to show off all the options rather than for maximum efficiency. Once I set things the way I liked and focused on one screen, the issue largely solved itself because I can do steering wheel controls and voice recognition to jump to new songs. That being said, the car itself is fun to drive and shows off that the Italians actually give a damn about building stuff (even if the primary motivation is to buy out the unions and pour 100% of the American profit to subsidize Fiat brands).Chrysler did suck for a long time (Daimler didn't give a crap about anything other than luxury sedans and Cerberus focused on short term gutting and fancy warranty options, so I've heard). They've improved a lot in a very short period of time (especially on the back-end, for finance and organizational efficiency - where I work). Consumer Reports, for me, has never been a good voice of tech because if the judge is too dumb to use something properly, it loses points.Speed senstive volume control is new for Chrysler?
