I read elsewhere that the 7/70 powertrain warranty is getting cut back to 3/36 on all 2006 model year DC vehicles. Did you hear any different?

anyone know what the pull cup is for truck and what it looks like? it is just a strap? and finally can it be put on the 05's.

Also, saw on a magnum forum that someone said they have hook for the gas cap now.

You might be able to add the system if you haven't been in "D" very long.

Here's one picture, from a Charger:

Yes, that is correct, effective immediately per Warranty Bulletin # D-05-10

It looks as though it has been incorporated into the trunk liner, per Chrysler: "For the 2006 model year, we are adding deck lid pull-down cups to the trunk liner to make it easier to close the trunk, and to avoid getting your hands dirty from the exterior of the trunk lid. The pull-down cups will also minimize smudging of the exterior trunk surface."

The pull-down cup is an excellent minor fix. I have few complaints with my 300C, but the smudges from having to put my hand on the trunk lid to close it is one of them. Inevitably, a ring or wristwatch edge is gonna scratch it.

I'd also like to see a locked gas cap with an inside release.

The Rear Seat Entertainment System will be available from Mopar in mid June. This will be a simple conversing for 2006 model upgrades. 2005 models will require a wire harness tie in to the Can-Bus for operation. This will add a bit more time for installation.

I just got my 2006 300C two days ago and it doesn't have any of the 2006 MODS that you showed. Is there somewhere that these can be verified from DC?

Would really like to know since I ordered it 1/5/05 as a 2005, but it came through with a 2006 VIN and 3/36 warranty instead of the 7/70 advertised when I ordered it.
Thanks,

faster

This will probably be one of my next mods and hopefully my dealer will be able to easily retrofit this system into my '2005'. Thanks for the info Rob. :cool:
