All the hate against the Ghibli is really only found on the internet from people trying to sound knowledgeable, but in reality they are just parroting Doug DeMuro's comedic review here:
The review is scathing and very funny, but really not fair or accurate. The price he keep citing ad nauseam is just the inflated MSRP. No one really pays MSRP for the Ghibli, and deals abound. (My 2017 SQ4 was listed for $85k and I paid $68k) So, the price of the Ghibli is competitive when compared to a 5-series or E-class, and really a bargain when compared to its true competitors the more sexy 6-series Grand Coupe and CLS. The features DeMuro claim are missing are not anymore (plus they are mostly unnecessary nanny features anyway). The only legitimate beef is the sharing of parts with Chrysler, but even that complaint is B.S. when you really look at it. Sure, the Ghibli has the same window controls at the Dodge Dart.
But there are no real complaints about the window controls. They do all the things they need to do (window goes up, window goes down, doors lock, doors unlock, mirrors swivel, etc.) and everything works perfectly fine. They also look nice (IMHO). Maybe the Dart has really nice switch gear as oppose to the Ghibli's being cheap. For comparison, look at the competition:
BMW 6 Series:
I see very little difference. But every hater of the Ghibli will drone on about the cheap feeling Chrysler switch gear. I think it is nonsense. In fact, I dressed mine up with $30.00 of Chinese carbon fiber, and I think mine looks the best of the bunch.
