2020 Challenger Scat Pack

New owner of a Scat Pack, 6-speed manual, closing in on one week. Love the car and, similar to what another recent purchaser posted, at least a 10-year wait for me while I was distracted by more mundane transportation.

I've only ever driven one other Challenger, a non-Scat Pack R/T 6-speed a few months back. Knowing that the 392 is a different beast, I'm noting that chassis vibration over 3500 RPM is significantly greater, felt in the floor and clutch pedal. The car is totally smooth and highway speed however. Sound about right or should I be looking at engine/trans mounts etc.?

What year? How many miles? Tires in good shape?

IMO you should be taking a brand new car back to the dealership for any issueS, whether it's a vibration you are unsure of or if trim pieces are damaged.

It's a brand-new car and is covered by a bumper to bumper warranty.

Thanks-- just looking for a point of reference with owners in preparation for the usual "They all do that" statement from the dealer.

Yeah I get it. I have a 2015 SRT but it's an automatic but I don't have any chassis vibrations in mine.

I wonder if any of it may because it's new and things have settled broke in so to speak. Rubber bushings and what not may soften up and absorb some of the vibration.

Just a random thought.

Probably a rear tire out of balance or runout issue. Could also be a driveline imbalance. Let the dealer sort it out. That is what your warranty is for.

Take it straight back to the dealer. Explain,make sure they can reproduce the problem. They will figure it out. Good luck.
