Yes...and I have already contacted dodge to see if that can be changed. They said no.

Reason being:

1) there is no way to make a safe lane change in those 3 flashes cuz they come in too fast

2) the thing I wanted them to add, like my chevy had on it, was when you tap the turn signal stalk, you get 3 flashes for lane changing (like above), but if you are in tow/haul, mode, you get 6 flashes......plenty of time to change lanes safely with a boat or trailer in tow.

I agree 100%, 3 flashes is not enough. 5 - 6 would be perfect.

Yes! 100% agree. The only time I use the 3 flash function when I'm exiting a highway onto an off ramp or something. Then you can get away with it. For actually changing lanes you need at least 6 IMO.

They put that feature on the truck for the Texas people LOL. It seems that NOBODY uses signals around here anymore to much effort to push the signal on and then on a lane change lift it back up, so they just put a tap feature.

I wish there was a way to bring back the window feature for the '12's. Dumb people always ruin the fun for everyone else.

FWIW, my 2010 had the roll down window feature which I liked, however, I am not dumb and also had accidentally rolled it down a couple times without knowing. This happens just having the keys in your pocket, etc. I had a pcm flash update a while back and this feature is now gone. I wish I still had it, it really helped cool the cab off when walking across the lot in the florida sun.

Also, 3 flashes is not enough, I agree 100%.

Oh great now people are complaining about the 3 flashes. Maybe they will discontinue that feature as well lol. I use it all the time in my Ram and Challenger. I also use the window down feature to let the heat out before I jump in. They should have done an auto up feature with the fob too because sometimes I shut the truck off then roll the windows up, but before I can get them up all the way someone opens the door to get out which stops the process. It would be nice to just roll them up while walking away or from inside the house. BTW why do we still call it "rolling" the window up/down? Seems strange when we push/pull a button. Maybe it should be "putting" the window up/down? Just a thought lol.

A "hidden" feature is that you can download the SRT apps on the Uconnect. Not all of them work properly but a few do and they are really neat.

Can't change lanes in 3 flashes...try that in Houston triffic

After an oil change get in your truck, turn to "on" pump. Gas pedal 3 times within 10 seconds , then turn off. The oil light on dash will go out
