I think I'd DRIVE it to the plant and drop off the KEYs and tell them call me when the fu_ker is done right. drop the mic!
Maybe call or write the Managers of the plant and tell them (I'm coming to ram it up someones butt. **opps thinking this only) no one can fix this manufacture defective F-ing car. So where do you drop off the car, what plant takes in defective models.
lol So frustrating I'm sure, but call the plant, but be civil and to the point, no one can fix it and where do you take it to or what plant does intakes. Use that phone and cool head and ask them "What NOW?" see what they say and keep calling them for a fix two or three times a day. Why do you think collectors do it for. Cause it gets results one day or the next. Don't get mad, make them pay for it,
Drive them nuts go on line reviews at major sellers and put in your reviews of it being a "LEMON" on the new GT OMG, Dude I wish I was in your shoes sorta.
I was thinking of getting the GT model too, but now not so sure I'd even want to drive one seeing the problem not getting resolved on yours. That's what the manufacturers don't want to hear from potential buyers like me ether! So good luck I'm sure they will fix it just start calling.

The instrument gauge and center EVIC still reboots randomly and they can't find the problem after 3 attempts and 12 days in the shop. My next stop will be the lemon lawyer.

Do yourself a favor and pass on this car.
I have a 2017 GT and I have no problems so far. So I think maybe you just got a bad one and hopefully they get that sorted out for you. But I wouldn't tell people to not buy the GT because of one bad egg. Again I hope it gets sorted out for ya!

They can't/won't fix it (they say they can't duplicate the problem) and won't buy it back. Their arbitration company denied it. I haven't had time to fill out the lemon law paperwork, yet. Until that time, I will be extracting a pound of flesh by telling the world how crappy the car is. I might save someone else from making the same mistake.

Just a thought here...if they aren't going to fix it, I'm assuming that it is running, take it to another dealer and trade it in for something new. Hold out for the best offer and let Dodge worry about it once they can't get it to run properly during their inspection before reselling. My dealer didn't even check the Camaro I traded in when I drove off with a new Challenger. If denied for any reason at least you can use it in Lemon Law court.

2017 Challenger T/A 392 White Knuckle - M6
2011 Camaro LT RS (Black w/Red Stripes)
2009 Challenger SRT (Hemi Orange)
2008 Charger Daytona (Hemi Orange)
1969 Camaro RS (Yellow with Black Stripes)
All cars before are too pathetic to mention...

With 41K miles on my 2017 GT my bumper to bumper warranty is history however today the dealer did cover under warranty the work on my Uconnect that has been rebooting & freezing up. TSB#08-007-17 Rev H is a software update that they claim fixes the Uconnect issues. (updated 04/09) I have 1,500 miles post software update without any issues.

I would take a multi-thousand dollar hit if I traded it in now.

It runs, yes. The center gauges (speedometer, tach, 2nd display, etc) goes out randomly.

That sucks. Sounds like a bad ground in the dash somewhere. Maybe if you take it to a real mechanic (not a dealer) lol.
