    Are there any know issues that I should make sure the dealership takes care of before we pickup our Hellcat to bring it 1,500 miles home?

    Pressure test the cooling system and the radiator cap!!!!!! Make sure the cooling fan comes on!

    Check to see if your upper radiator hose at the radiator has a worm drive clamp. If not, have them put one there.

    The less they prep the exterior of the car, the better. Mine had tons of swirls from initial prep and overspray from the factory that I had paint correction done to fix. Look at your front splitter as well, and make sure it was not damaged during transport.

    There is a document here that somebody put together with all the checks you should do. If I can find the link, or someone else can...post it here. There is a three page checklist of things you should go over with them before leaving the dealership....whomever put this document together had you in mind. Find it!

    Examine the paint job very carefully. Look for scrapes and scratch marks.

    really look it over, don't get your emotions up, try to focus on the fit and finish. If you find something bring it up. My dealer was great with the process. I don't normally get picky but this time I spent over an hour going over the car, did not find much by the way. There was one issue and they had to replace something. Not really a big deal.

    Do you, HellcatdotClub, or any other forum member know why the Hellcat PDI Checklist Link no longer works? I question whether the dealer in MI performed a solid PDI, so I figured I would do it myself since a local dealer is not going to re-do it since they won't get paid by Chrysler.
