Fellow Canadian's Who Ordered a Hellcat

I was just wondering if anyone has an update on the status of their HC who got a VON when ordered? I ordered July 23 when my dealer call and said he was able to place an order. I called my dealer on Friday and he said no change in status still in B something status. Dealer has been family owned for over 55 years and has a Five Star Status (highest quality service rating awarded by Chrysler Canada), got an email from area rep and said they were going to build 3 HC per month for western Canada with first ones going to Vancouver and with the amount of orders for HC it might take 3 years to get one.I talked to the dealer in Ontario where I bought my Yellow Jacket and said they would get one HC but it would be about a month before they could option it, and he said they would build 50 HC for Ontario. If anyone would like to add to this, true or false, I would appreciate it.

I too ordered mine on the 23. There is no change in status for mine either. I also have a buddy that actually works at the assembly plant and he said it is going to be awhile. I don't expect to see the car until October or November.

I would check back at the end of August with your deal and have them run the VON. You should see a status change by then.

Good luck,

Todd

You have an agreement but unless you have a VON you could be waiting a bit. I have a signed agreement to at MSRP but they logged on, ordered the car and gave me my VON.

So I would check back and see.

Good luck

Well my order went from pending to confirmed and I was told it looks like Sept 1 when it goes to production so realistically I will not see mine until October or later.

I'm good with that, nice to know I'm getting it. :canada:

LOL, I'm sure I'm not the first for Canada, but it is nice to go from pending to confirmed.

Wow sorry to hear the markup issue in Canada. I guess I'm lucky I paid MRSP.

I'm not upset about having to wait what I'm upset about is the poor communications. They don't even have to provide details but they could at the very least say due to unforeseen minor issues that we are in the process resolving, we will not be releasing any vehicles until it meets our quality control standards or something to that effect.

Instead what you get is gossip speculation and so forth. I'm a cynical guy and I consider the information that I received to be reliable however I don't know if where he got it from is blowing smoke or is accurate.

I would be nice if Dodge even email all the customers who have registered, have a VON or serial number and give a generic update but instead really nothing.

Love the car and give it 5 stars, Dodge communications maybe 1 star!

Well I ordered in July and still in BX status so I decided to go to a few other dealerships and boy are some crazy.

Langley Dodge, Willowbrook Dodge and Carter Dodge all wanted way over MSRP, heck two of them wanted 5,000 over MSRO just for the 392 SRT.

If things don't change I'm going to look for a different ride entirely and give up on Dodge. I find most of the dealerships to be very slimy.

Not a very good experiance so far.

Well went to Jim Pattison Dodge in Surrey BC that has a black hellcat coming In and the manager wants 95,000 for the auto.

I told him he was out to lunch.

This is one Dodge dealership I will never deal with.
