    2016 Hellcat Arrival.jpg My 15 had so many problems that Dodge agreed to replace it with a new 16. The 16 arrived at the dealer this past Thursday and I hope that ISG has all of the paperwork done and the car comes home around mid week.

    So now I'm curious what, if any problems owners are having with the 2016 cars? There may be a thread for this already, if so please forgive me and point me in that direction.

    70cuda...Thanks for the post. Am I understanding correctly that you have a buddy with a 2016 Hellcat that has already required a motor to be replaced?

    Thanks to everyone that has posted. Now I need to PM one of you guys.

    That's scary. Do you know what problems these two cars had that caused the engines to be replaced?

    I only have about 120 miles on my 2016, but it has a strong smell of oil when I park it in the garage.
    I pulled the dipstick and checked the oil and it looks good. I do not see any oil under the hood or on the floor, so I do not know where it is coming from.

    Also, I noticed on my Challenger, right behind the side 1/4 windows on both sides, a bulge or bump under the factory paint. I do not know if it is a weld area or body filler, but it definitely stands out.

    Do all Challengers have this or is this an issue?
