    After waiting 7 months for my hellcat then receiving a voucher, I still can't get what I want. I went to reorder my car today and the dealer said only allocation is for an automatic transmission. What??? I remember when they ran out of autos! I wanted a stick. Now I can only get an auto. What's with that?

    The dealer I was working with today told me there was a restriction on automatic transmissions and could only order a manual.

    Sounds like the all too familiar 'State of Confusion' that most dodge dealers seem to have nowadays.

    No different than later year. Satin hoods, laguna, sunroofs,all have had a turn on restriction lists. Looks like Brampton is gearing up to punch out A8s early. But the M6 is still available to order. Just at a later date. May have something to do with the remaining M6s sitting on lots in dealer inventory.

    Sounds like dealer ignorance is still running rampant. You'd think these guys would all get a fact sheet BEFORE the ordering banks open...

    When I placed my order they only showed a m6 allocated but he switched to a a8 and the system took the order and gave it a VON.
    Hopefully I don't end up in VON purgatory for such a change.

    So does it depend on what part of the country you're from..... My dealer said I can only get an automatics in New England ? I wanted a 6 speed.

    Not sure but just talked to the sales manager that ordered and they were allocated 5 cars and only 1 manual. Maybe some dealers weren't allocated a type of tranny.

    It's dealer bullshit to get you to buy what they have now.

    In 2015 after my A8 had been on order for 9 months, FCA called the dealer and said it would be built if I would take a manual otherwise it would be 2016. I said no way. It was built about 2 months later. Don't settle for something you don't want.
