    ok, ive had the HC for less than a month. 12 miles on car when i bought. I have 20xx miles now as you can see. I was going to see how fast ive had it up to using the display screen in dash. Well, lo and behold this is what i see. I have never had it that fast, no where near. So, what is going on? Bought from a Dodge dealer in AZ.
    Possibilities...dyno, tire spin, factory test, dealer took to track. It would be pretty hard to go that fast anywhere near the dealership.
    Next issue, so obviously if it did actually get to 191, then proper breakin was not followed. I wonder if dealer computer can see when it went 191.
    Anyone else see anything like this?

    ^^^ What HellCat_child253 said. That top speed is typical. Reset it and then put your own top speed on that bad boy! :D

    This well documented already... It's a computer setup. The kid at the lot who moves cars around only got the car up to 90 mph and did just one big burnout. Factory testing at the end of the production line only gets the car up to 60 mph or less. The engine is run on a dyno before the car is built, so no way to record that speed. Relax, your car is fine.

    The saying goes if you want something done right do it yourself. So get out there and watch out for police officers that own Ford's and Chevy's.
