Not really having a problem with the coppers, it depends if you draw attention or not.
I don't blow the tires off every time I drive the car, I leave that to the squirrels that want to race me.
I know the car is a rocket but i am proud to say that at a steady 70/80 mph, I can get 25 mpg.
The car has it all.

Dont do it. If your engine should be replaced and the regional tech rep states to swap the motor. AND you have a full blown lemon case in just about any place in the lower 48, they'll say its a valve cover that needs to be replaced.



They might even replace the whole rear end of the car and make it go slower for you. Shit, even the Service Manager thought it was running weak as he had driven the car before.








I also have 3 letters, one saying my old scat pack should be safe to drive and that they would replace it. Another from the arbitration company telling me to pick a replacement. And the final one from FCA legal after the NHTSA complaint where the air bag did not deploy and the seat belts did not latch after the rear end hopped me right of the road ina 150FT space, almost killing me.



Yeah, screw FCA man. I would not trade for a hellcat. All you get is a dog turd that looks liek the dog got into the glitter box.



If you want more info just ask. I have plenty.

Any way, I did see one of your post/video's on the Smoking Cat and I am happy to say that I have never had that problem with mine a 2016 model.
I do hope the problem is taking care of soon, for the price of these cars I would hope no major issues sense the engines are supposedly dyno tested before they are shipped out to the factory.
I just hope that you are not looking for any post with the word HELLCAT to tell everyone that they are Just Turds Rolled Up In Glitter.
My HELLCAT has 7200 miles on it and is the BEST MUSCLE car I have ever owned.
Good Luck in your ordeal and keep us all posted.

As soon as I sell my 2010 SRT I will be getting a Hellcat. Many used with low miles out there and I'm willing to drive/fly . I'm also "trying" to wait until new models come out which may bring the $$ down a bit.

If not mentioned before, look into what I did, I bought a left over 2016 in 2017 brand new, was $ 71000 paid $ 64000. and a trade knocked it down more.

Yeah, I've seen some new ones in the upper 50's, many used with under 1000, 2000, 3000 miles in low 50's. Hoping september'ish the price drops a little more.

I just sold my 2016 Scat Pack Shaker and ordered a Red Eye. When the prices were released it was less than I thought it was going to be and since there is no limited availability like the Demon the dealer gave it to me for my employee cost and no other mark up. I have not driven a Hellcat but also have a 2003 Mustang Cobra I bought new with a few mods. I loved my Scat Pack and had no issues with it but really want the supercharged car. It sounds like the majority of you guys were happy with the move so I'm betting I will be too. My wife got a 392 TA in Plum Crazy earlier in the year and loves it. Hoping I can take delivery before winter sets in or it will be exceptionally long until Spring!
