    I did the PDI with the Dodge tech and I test drove it with him riding shotgun, I wanted to be the first to drive the car. We get back do all the paper work and get in the car to learn the electronics. I hear a ding and when I look down I see the temp gauge at 260, I shut it off and turned the ignition on to run, with A/C on still no fan operation. They bring it into shop and find a defective fan module assembly. It did not boil over I caught it in time but it sucked. It was a long ride home leaving the car.The dealer special handled the fan order and I was on the road in two days but it was a long two days. I changed the oil after my 500 mile break in, all is well at 700 miles now.
