There'* a reason for that. Realistically looking, I don't think their rantings aren't completely out of left field...

"Hemi" isn't some sort of special technology that can fail in the blink of an eye. Hemi motors would be just as likely to fail as non-hemi motors, assuming proper workmanship and care. It'* all a marketing gimmick, I said it once and I'll say it again, COUNTLESS mainstream (family cars included, for that matter) cars have had hemispherical-shaped combustion chambers for decades now. It'* just Chrysler just resurrecting the name, cranking out considerable hp out of a 5.7L V8, and creating a helluva a lot of hype over. Great technology, but it'* common stuff. It'd be like Pontiac acting like they pioneered the performance shift mode in the '92 SSEi...
