The Consumer Digest 2012 Best Buys have been announced!

Makes one wonder, what criteria is used to determine those vehicles that makes “the list”? After some research, here is what I found — selections are based on behind-the-wheel assessment, safety ratings, ownership costs, warranty, price, comfort,
ergonomics, styling and amenities—reflect CD’s view of which 2012 vehicles offer exceptional value for the money. O’Brien Auto Group vehicles named to the list include:

  • Chrysler 300
  • Dodge Challenger
  • Ram 1500
  • Chrysler Town & Country
  • Dodge Grand Caravan
  • Dodge Durango
  • Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • FIAT 500
  • Toyota Tacoma

“Few purchases are more important, or require more research, than buying a new vehicle,” says Randy Weber, Consumers Digest’s publisher. “Our analyses underscore our commitment to ensure that consumers are as satisfied with their auto purchase years after making it as they were on the day they drove off the lot.”

Given the condition that the Chrysler Group found themselves in a little over a couple of years ago, this serves somewhat as an indication of positive results from the revamping that’s in progress at the Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram brands under the direction of Fiat, Chrysler’s new Italian parent. As a dealer representing their brands, our Tom O’Brien Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram stores and our FIAT Studio have their ‘face toward the sun’ and are looking forward to what the future brings!

The DriveSRT team arrived in Indianapolis this week with the Thunder of 2,350 horses.  What impressed me, or surprised me, the most was these five 470 Horsepower beast were driven, not trucked to this event.  That says everything you need to know about the daily driver nature of these vehicles. SRT stands for Street and Racing Technology, this group has not lost sight of the fact that they aren’t building just track cars.

The DriveSRT team is currently involved in the SRT High Performance Tour.  They are traveling around the country piloting some amazing vehicles.  This past Monday, Tom O’Brien Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, on 96th Street, was lucky enough to be their exclusive stop in central Indiana.  The SRT Club was invited, and through out the night had a good showing.  A short, but exhilarating Acceleration/Braking track was setup, and the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 and Chrysler 300 SRT8 were put through their paces.  Visitors had the opportunity to experience the 470 HP/470 LB-FT of torque first hand.

The Drive SRT team has continued on, leaving us in awe of their dust.  Links to follow their journey are at the end of this post.

Cleaning up one of the Chargers, the only downside to driving between shows. I imagine it's worth it.
