"FCA Recalls the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon for Cruise Control Issues":

"The concept of sharing public roads with the 840-horsepower 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is scary enough in itself. It’s even scarier—for anyone involved—to realize that some of those 840-HP Demons could get stuck on their cruise-control setting while out there.

Fiat Chrysler recalled certain Demons earlier this month for issues with cruise control, along with certain Challengers, Chargers and Chrysler 300s with 5.7-liter engines and the $2,200 Mopar Stage 1 Kit Performance Package. There are about 1,930 cars in total included in the recall. If you’re a U.S. owner and want to check up on your car personally, paste its VIN number into the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s recall website. Then, actually go get your recall done if there is one."

I don’t understand why they say “recalled demons” because they didn’t. They sent out a tsb for the pcm. To almost all 2018 FCA vehicles. Click bait.

And who drives their Demon on cruise control? Anybody taking cross country trips in these? I thought these were intended to be driven 1/4 mile at a time.

I have the Scat Pack 1 PCM in my 2015 R/T, I am NOT getting the recall done. It will wipe out the 91 octane tune and believe me, it does make a difference, although I can't get 91 octane so, I use 93.

Right? I just assumed the Demon *didn't* have cruise control. Not really fitting with the name and function of the car! :)

The first recall was regarding the cruise control, looks like that was somewhat universal. Recently received a second one that involves a hood bezel quality issue. Apparently some owners were experiencing quality issues that caused the bezel to warp, sag and potentially chip hood paint. Contacted the SRT folks as requested and was informed that a new bezel was being produced to replace the original piece. Looks like they are going against the norm on this recall. Was informed that they are giving owners the options of selecting their dealer of choice for the install and paint repair if required, or choosing a shop of their preference. Another option was having the part sent to your local dealer, so the owner could pick up the part and do the install. If paint damage is present, they are giving us eighteen momths to complete the operation. Just picked up the part today and with no real paint issues, it looks like I'm good to go. Want to thank Dodge Cares for the professional approach on dealing with this recall....
