Oh the auto stick helps BIG TIME but only drop it into second unless you REALLY have to. It's not healthy for the tranny. Plus not stoping in a nice straight line makes a big difference as well. Living in Cali your forced to learn the tricks.

The brakes in the 98 were upgraded in the 99 models. So somebody at Chrysler realized something was up. True it's driving style but you have to go by the average for this car's weight, if the average is lets say 140FT. from 60-0 for a 3500lb. vehicle & were in the 160 range, somethings wrong here. Brakes can never be "good enough" the quicker you can stop in a straight line the better. Plus fade, after driving for 2 hours in stop & go traffic does it dramatically affect braking distances? Another thing to consider. If Chrysler is going to produce a product that has longer braking distances which will lead to more accidents & therefore higher insurance rates. Chrysler deserves to get hammered in the auto reviews which therefore costs Chrysler sales. Hummm now was it worth not spending more time on the brakes?

Alot of the times you have to be more concerned with who's behind you not in front of you. Quick brake or brake at the last possible second & you might get kissed.
Don't ever assume the guy behind you has good brakes.
