Thanks for the info. has anyone seen a full road test of the 500 from any of the U.S. car magazines, such as Road and Track?

Road & Track has a "Driving Impressions" article (with very little about driving it) at:

Lame. R&T can do better than this.

Yeah, that's just a "Driving Impression" article. I don't think R&T have done a full road test, which they are very good it.

Not a bad article in and of itself but I agree, not much driving impressions, despite the title.

A pretty accurate assessment by the Motorweek crew.

Having just read it myself, I have to agree.

To avoid the pitfall of the power dropping off in most situations, let the rpms remain high as much as possible by delaying the upshift whenever possible, as long as you don't get too close to redline or engage the rev limiter would be how I'd try to do it as much as possible.

True, mileage may suffer somewhat but even there, probably still better than some other cars in this class.
