Hellcat Valet Mode

Hey just found out that there is a new feature on the Hellcat Challenger called Valet Mode.

"If you're trying to protect your 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat from an adventurous valet (or teenager), use the black key fob that limits power to 500 hp. After entering your four-digit PIN code, stick the car in Valet Mode, which limits the car to 4000 rpm, upshifts earlier than normal, disables the steering-wheel paddle shifters on automatic-transmission models, eliminates the Drive Mode selections (Default, Sport, Track, and Custom), keeps the stability control completely on, and disables launch control."

Valet key should be limp mode, 500 horsepower can destroy the car with a bone head parking it. NEVER valet park a car like this.

As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is
impossible- but pissing everyone off, is a piece of cake.

True that. I wouldn't let anyone drive it, let alone go park the car out of my sight.

Agree completely - doesn't go far enough. In valet mode it should be limited to 10 MPH, along with all of the previously mentioned nannies enabled.

Also agree - NEVER allow a valet to park a car like the Hellcat (or even a 392 Challenger). The temptation to do something stupid is simply too great for the pimply faced punk handed the keys.
