We are spending the next several weeks taking a day to drive new Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram vehicles. We'll take a test drive and let you know the results weekdays on 98.5 WNYR, Hot Country K-101.7 and 104.5, and Finger Lakes News Radio 96.1 and 1240 WGVA and 96.1 and 1590 WAUB. Join the Finger Lakes Radio Group and D'Amico Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram on Rts. 5 & 20 in Geneva for a great summer ride.
Here are the first three rides!
Greg Cotterill of Finger Lakes News Radio grabs the key from Stephen R. Riffle to a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
"I drive a Jeep Liberty and love the fact that it goes through all types of weather, this Grand Cherokee does it in style! You forget you're riding in a Jeep until you read "Jeep" on the steering wheel." - Greg
Tiffany Collinsworth from the Hot Country Morning Crew gets the key from Scott Bowes to the 2013 Dodge Dart.
Dee Isaacs from 98.5 WNYR looks sharp in a 2013 Chrysler Town and Country minivan. That's Mike Godkin handing over the key.
"Very comfortable ride! I loved that the gas & brake petal could move towards me,along with many other cool features! Great vehicle for families or anyone that needs lots of room to move stuff! I would highly recommend the Chrysler Town & Country!" - Dee
Here's the Wednesday rides!
Jim Schreck of WNYR 98.5 takes a ride in Chrysler 300 Sedan.
"I loved the toys on the Chrysler 300: the 8.4 inch touchscreen interface includes backup camera, radio/USB audio system,cell phone interface, and climate control. With one touch it can show you the nearest and least expensive gas, and the GPS system can navigate you anywhere. The car has a solid feel and tight handling, not what you'd expect on a full size sedan." ~ Jim Schreck
Greg Cotterill climbs into a RAM 1500.
"Lets go...No problem in this Ram 1500. It has a 5.7L Hemi V8. I threw a couple of bags of bird seed in the back just so I could say I hauled something around. The bags were 8 pounds each, well under the 1500 lb payload." - Greg
Paul Szmal from K101.7 and 104.5 Jeep Patriot.
"I've never owned an SUV, always thought they were big, bulky tanks and handled like one...and this Jeep Patriot COMPLETELY changed my perspective. It accelerates well and handles better than my current car, even in tight spots! Can't beat the full time all wheel drive and the gas mileage is way better than you'd expect. LOVED the bluetooth capability and the easy to use steering wheel controls for almost everything, too." - Paul
Week #2 kicks off with a Chrysler 200, Jeep Rubicon 10th Anniversary Special, and the Ram 1500
"What's not to like about this Chrysler 200. Smooth ride, sun roof, navigation system, and 30 miles to the gallon!" - Greg
2013 Dodge Charger, 2013 Chrysler 300, and 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee
"This is the car for me, lots of leg room and cruise control that automatically slows the car when you come up on other vehicles" - Greg
Week three starts off with a RAM 1500 pick up, Jeep Compass, and a Dodge Avenger.
