Show me a high school kid who doesn't dream about owning one...
It's not that, it's that Chrysler has stated that under normal operating conditions, the 3.8L is known to burn 1 quart of oil every 1000 miles.

And you still have to hit it a bit harder than you would a 4.0, IMO, in order to go anywhere at a reasonable speed.

You can see people talk of the oil burning issue here:
