    You don't want to know. :(

    Wonder if I will be the 1st person to have owned 3 Hellcats?

    Do you have both charger and challenger? Can you post pics of all 3?

    "Too" have owned 3. Have car #2 only now. #3 will be replacing it. 2 replaced #1. In both cases like I said, you DON'T wanna know. (Not a happy story...)

    #1 is my profile (red) this is all I have now,, but FCA will own it within 4 weeks. #3 I don't own yet. Bet dollars to donuts Tim and Ralph will be on phone with me within 10 days. Given I doubt another exists on the globe that will have had 3, the hard way. Unless they want a media event, which is not my goal I'm a mopar loyalist...

    Wow that's a real bummer. What was wrong with cars 1 and 2? Not sure I have read any stories about your issues...

    Your going to drop that nugget and not explain your story did you have issues with 2 cars that were warranty replacements?

    I am guessing (2) crank failures and (1) supercharger failure.

    Definitely curious on this one. I pinned my crank at 21 miles, but if there are other inherit flaws, I'm secretly cringing at questionable warranty

    Here's a guess, and it's everywhere. All 4 quarters, hood, roof, only place not trunk. Got car in winter bad weather. Garaged it. Today was 1st day bright sun. Got her back from sc replacement, runs perfect. Decided to clean to do paint correction and finish work. This became immediately obvios in the bright sunlight.

    Car needs complete re paint, ain't gonna happen with me as owner. Took it to dealer they agreed immediately fca would buy it back. Amd they will they treate me very kind, so does my dealer. Sad.
