Re: Phazers observation

The one negative I totally disagree with is the lack of power out of the 3.7.
I've never driven any other car with this motor in it, but I drive a Pacifica with the 3.5 all the time, and I traded in a Dakota with the 5.2. The 3.7 gets around great & gives me 16 - 17 mpg on it's worst days. I've seen 20 mpg on the freeway & am hoping power & mileage will improve as the engine is broken in & I get a few mods done.

I've been driving in compact snow & ice all week & this thing gets around awesome at any speed!

Re: Phazers observation

This thing does great in ice/snow. With a set of studless snow tires on it gets even better. My only complaint is the car shakes at 28-30 mph at low rpm's like a flat tire. Going to check and see if the exhaust is rubbing somewhere. Other than that the power seems decent and there are some flat spots in the power curve.
