I had quality issues with both Vipers. Insofar as the new Viper goes I can't speak to the quality as I never drove or owned one but from the time I placed the order last November Dodge made it extremely difficult to stomach spending $130k+ with them. There were constant delays, no information why, misinformation why, dealers getting their cars before those of us who ordered cars got ours (existing Viper owners were promised their orders would be built first), terrible reviews and plummeting prices. When my car was finally about to be built in June I had had enough and it was painfully obvious from looking on line that it was not worth anywhere near the price the dealer wanted, so I canceled it. The whole Dodge deal never felt right from the get go and that was way too much money to spend on something you're not sure about. A couple of weeks later I ordered the F-Type V8 S for $3k over invoice. The whole thing fell in to place and just felt "right". So far, I love the car and I'm hoping the quality equals or surpasses the Vipers.
