    LOL! Numbers 4 and 5, especially, made me laugh! I do not spend anymore on gas for the HellCat than I did for my 2013 392, and my insurance only went up a whopping $160 ... for the whole year! Number 6 ... well, yeah. Hate away! :D

    1. It's Expensive - BS
    2. It's Terrible in the Snow - it's a muscle, not a jeep.
    3. You Will Spend a Fortune on Tires - it's a muscle car.
    4. You Will Spend a Bigger Fortune on Gas - same as above.

    5. You Will Spend a Fortune on Insurance
    - BS, I pay less then I pay for my SRT8
    6. Other Muscle Car Owners Will Hate You - that is so true and I like it.
    7. It Just Isn't for Everyone
    - same as above.

    1. Not really for what you get
    2. It's a car, not a snowmobile.
    3. This is half true, depending on how much you spin it.
    4. Gas is cheap now. Take advantage of it.
    5. Total BS, you have to know where to shop and how to play that game.
    6. Maybe, but not all.
    7. It isn't for somebody that doesn't know how to drive, for sure.

    1) It's expensive, yes. But for what you get, it is dirt cheap. It has more power than a Lambo that costs more than 5 times the cost. The next most powerful car is a Ferrari F12 @ ~330k.
    2) I drove all winter through snow and ice, no problems. Put the right tires on, as with any car, and you're golden. Ground clearance is the only thing that will stop a properly equipped Hellcat from driving well in the snow.
    3) Pay to play. Or if you get the all seasons, they're actually pretty cheap. $246/each at Tire Rack.
    4) I get well over 20 mpg cruising on the highway. Lots of cars at or below that amount..
    5) Insurance didn't really change for our two Hellcats compared to two 2010 SRT8 Challengers.
    6) Why is this a problem? Don't like the car because you lost? Fine by me.
    7) Yes, it's not for everyone. Not for people that can't afford it. Not for people that can't respect the power and drive sensibly. And most importantly, definitely NOT the right car for this idiotic author of the stupid article. I hate "Torque News".
