I was reading a post, and they said to get the PCM software updated to the latest revision under warranty. How often does this need to be done? Or for what reason? HELP

I saw this thread too, and asked myself the same question. First I've heard of this, and I've owned a lot of vehicles in the past. Doing a few quick Google searches, here is one thread I found. It's a bit dated so I don't think this is THE answer you are looking for but it kind of hints around about things that happen (and some of the risks that may be involved -- can't flash back, and if car is running great do you want to do it?).

PCM firmware update 18-031-04 - LX Forums | Dodge Charger Challenger Magnum | SRT8 | Chrysler 300 Forum

ETA: Do we have a spot on this forum where all the Challenger TSB's are stored? If not, why?

Okay, well I found the TSB section on our website here. Not exactly what I had in mind. I was hoping to have all TSB's listed in numerical order and a PDF we could view.

Anyhow, looking on safercar.gov I was able to pull 4 TSB's for the 2010 Challenger. They are duplicates under different categories, so 2 really. Here is the summary, copied directly from the website. To get the full details, you have to pay $.15/page and they will mail them to you.
