Chrysler 200 safety: five stars

The 2015 Chrysler 200 has earned a five-star (the highest possible) overall safety rating  from the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).  It scored five stars in frontal collisions, two-vehicle side-impacts, and single-vehicle-with-pole side impacts. It got four stars for rollover resistance.

The 2015 200 had already earned a Top Safety Pick Plus rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).


The car?s many optional active safety systems do not factor into the ratings, though NHTSA provides recognition on their safety-ratings page for them. Collision-warning systems are required for IIHS Top Safety Pick+ status.

Get a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Before it’s too Late

Back in May Chrysler made some announcements about their enthusiast-focused SRT brand. They had spun it off as a separate division but that didn?t work out so well so they decided to reconsolidate it as part of Dodge.

But this move resulted in a lot of questions, chiefly what would happen to other high-performance vehicles in the company?s portfolio including SRT versions of the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Chrysler 300 sedan? Answering part of this query, it appears as though the big, bad Jeep is sticking around, for the time being at least.

Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Review

Classification of vehicles in the auto industry has become a messy business. All sorts of new products blur the lines between SUVs and crossovers, compacts and mid-sizers and so on. But the SRT Grand Cherokee stretches into two categories that rarely cross, SUVs and sports cars.

This is the only domestic vehicle of its kind, and the only real competitors in this tiny niche segment come from Germany. Trying to wear many hats all at once, the SRT-tuned Jeep Grand Cherokee makes very few compromises in its goal of delivering tight-track handling along with the typical duties of an SUV…

Willys Wheeler a highlight at the Texas Truck Rodeo

Having two days to sample 75 different trucks, SUVs and crossovers sounds like being handed the keys to the candy store. But the old admonition about being careful what you wish for is is very appropriate: it?s a lot of candy, you get only a little taste of each kind and you have to eat very fast.

The reality is that you get about 12-13 hours of total driving time to sample as many of those vehicles as possible; you have to share those vehicles with 60 other people that have the same requirement and you have to be…

2015 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 6.4L Manual

There are two things we need to get straight before we embark on this review of the 2015 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack.

1. No, this is not the Hellcat, as half of the people we encountered thought (or hoped) it was. No, it is not the supercharged one. No, it doesn?t have 700 horsepower. 

2. Mopar fans are not like the rest of us. That might just be because Mopars aren?t like other cars. A few bits of evidence: The Mod Top; the ?meep, meep? horn on the Road Runner; and a general obsession with cartoon…

Hellcat Watch

Dodge Challenger Hellcat and Charger Hellcat buyers may want to supplement their powerful new car with a stylish new watch, sold by the Bozeman Watch Company and named after the same American naval fighter plane as the new supercharged Hemi engines. The watch costs around 10% of the car's price ? $6,125 (the price is slated to go up after production begins).


The Hellcat, whose engines were made by Nash, brought down 5,271 enemy fighters during the second half of World War II. Bozeman Watch's web site claims the watch "pays homage to its namesake with its…

Safe Tires Equal a Safe Family How to Test and Maintain Your Tires

You know when you have a flat tire, but do you notice when your tires aren?t in their best condition? Knowing how to check your tires for signs of deterioration can help to prevent accidents as a result of tire failure, and keep you and your family safe on the road.

Under-inflation is the number-one cause of tire failure, which can lead to dangerous driving conditions. Another more surprising side effect of under-inflated tires is reduced fuel economy. But it makes perfect sense when you consider how much harder your vehicle has to work with even one under-inflated tire…

8 Things You Need To Know About Back-Up Cameras

On the evening of October 19, 2002, pediatrician Greg Gulbransen walked out his front door to move the family's sport-utility vehicle into the driveway. Unbeknownst to him, his 2-year-old son Cameron followed. Gulbransen was backing up when he felt a small bump, discovering only after it was too late that he'd accidentally run over and killed the boy.


Back-up accidents involving a small child inadvertently hurt or killed by a family member driving away from home happen all too frequently. Driving safety advocate Janette Fennell even has a name for them: the bye-bye syndrome.

When Should I Change My Oil?

An engine oil change is a relatively simple service. It?s widely touted as the single most important part of your car?s maintenance schedule. There is a good reason for this. Nothing will shorten engine life faster than missed oil changes.
