    Got rained on for the very first time heading home, is there some emergency precaution I'm suppose to take? The car is at 620 miles now.

    Resist the urge to wipe it down, it's dirty & even microfiber cloth will scratch & swirl.

    It rains in AZ? Go out again and nail it and report back as I haven't been in the rain.

    you just lost thousands in resale value.....its now documented here that you can no longer list your car as NO RAIN

    i would look for signs of rust under your car by tomorrow morning.......i recommend selling for msrp to someone here on the forum before it becomes a rust bucket

    It just breaks loose and the rear comes around. The traction control works amazingly well in default mode. I was a little upset though how easily it slides out, certainly was less than half throttle. I have the A8

    Shame on you for getting caught in our twice a year rain. I have a 500 mile rule. If rain is within 500 miles, the Mopars don't come out.;)

    Shit, I thought I would never drive in the rain, but it was raining when I got it and I've been rained on every day so far. Damn summer Florida weather!
