Any con's of SRT8 ownership?

Hey all,
I am buying a 2010 SRT8 Hurst Edition, upgrading from a 2015 SXT plus. Just curious if there have been any issues with the 2010 that I should be aware of.
Thanks!!

Check for signs of rust around those rocker areas. Paint bubbles will be the first indication.

I have a 2009 SRT and have had no problems with it. In my first two years of ownership, Dodge asked me to bring it back for a driveability reflash, Key fob reflash and positive battery cable.

The biggest con is the increased chance that you will get a speeding ticket.

Here is a listing of all the Technical Service Bulletins and recalls for the 2008-2014 model years.

I have a 2010 SRT8...modified it with an Edelbrock Victor II EFI manifold, BBK 90mm TB, K&N cold air intake, Accel Supercoils, JBA headers, Corsa exhaust and a Diablosport tune. Installed a Hurst short-shift kit and had Hotchkis install their sport suspension package. Didn't have a single problem before the mods and haven't had any since. Solid car. Have fun.

The only problem I can see is that next you are going to NEED a super charger.
