    Reading the "Drive mode supplement," included with my 2016 SRT 392. Page 82 states, "All SRT vehicles are track tested for 24 hours of endurance."

    Anyone care to take a stab at what that means?

    they took a production car and drove it hard for 24 hours, not yours specifically

    Then it's not "all." "Endurance." To make sure they don't get tired.

    Read all to mean All SRT vehicle models not each and every vehicle

    Each car gets shipped to RS. He wails on them for 24 hours and then they ship to the dealer.

    If this was really the case, our cars would take much longer to come to us. Can you imagine the logistics of this was part of the process. We can't wait any longer for them right???

    When I had my 06 Magnum SRT8, SRT sent a tech out to me to do some work on my car (ended up being a new program for all cars to eliminate a serious issue), and we talked a bit about this.

    He said that they take one of each and run them for 24 hours straight on a track, switching drivers in and out, and do it on extremely hot days. If the radiator pukes, or anything else, they make changes. The way they see it, if a car can be run hard for 24 hours straight by them... the car can handle anything that a consumer will throw at it.

    This was also back in the first year of the Jeep SRT8, and that model was not approved for off road use. He said they still took one out and ran it HARD offroad like a 4X4 through fields, streams, wilderness... all kinds of crazy terrain just to see how it would perform. He said they didn't have any problems.

    This ^^^

    Otherwise you would have all taken delivery of your cars with a couple thousand miles on them.

    Even at 55 mph, 24 hours would mean 1,320 miles on your "new" car. Doubt many people would like that.

    I've bought 3 SRT cars now and all of them had less than 10 miles on the odometer when purchased.

    I agree with all assumptions above, the person who wrote the drive mode supplement must not understand written English. Heavy Metal understood the distinction.

    They understood it just fine, and wrote it properly.

    "All SRT vehicles are track tested for 24 hours of endurance." means just that. ALL models of SRT made vehicles are track tested for 24 hours. That is proper writing. If they meant what you were assuming, the proper way to write that would have been "Every individual vehicle bearing the SRT badge is track tested for 24 hours of endurance".

    They can't help that your reading comprehension falls short :cool:

    I'm not assuming what is obviously untrue, just pointing out an incorrect statement in the manual. Now, if you harken back to your classic course prep for any graduate entrance exam series (eg. GRE, GMAT, English Proficiency), you will recall that "every single" is a redundant statement, meaning simply "every". Redundancy is slang, influenced by local affectation, and incorrect. Every has always meant every, and "every vehicle" is the correct way of saying "every single vehicle". What they should have written was "every model", or for the impaired, "every single model".
