    I've been thinking about this whole experience and came to the realization that Canadians must be the most diehard Mopar fans or we are all seriously nuts .

    Way back in July I was seriously considering ordering a Hellcat. And fate intervened, I was on hwy 407 in my Charger when a Billet Silver Hellcat pulled up beside me with Micheghan plates the driver gave me thumbs up and took off. The entire hwy was swallowed with the sound of its exhaust and I couldn't hear my 440 with headers and 3" pipes anymore LOL
    Well few days later I ordered my car.
    Excactly one day after the order banks opened.
    July 24th

    Aug 6th I was told my order had been approved to bring in my trade, Done!!

    Went too Moparfest at the end of Aug in New Hamburg Ontario, CANADA'S largest All Mopar car show with 2,000 cars and 20,000+ spectators hoping too see a Hellcat in person.
    No such luck !
    The dealer I have my order with is one of the sponsors of the show and they brought all current 2014 Models to display but were unable to get Chrysler Canada too bring one from the plant for everyone too see.
    Instead they had a PR person from Chrysler on the stage thru out the wknd trying too raise interest in the Hellcat.
    They told Everyone at the show Chrysler Canada had only planned 100 cars for CANADA but due to increased demand they will build more. NO MENTION OF HOW MANY

    So here we sit, all of us Canadians who placed or orders without seeing, hearing, or test driving the cars we've ordered.
    While the folks on the other side of an imaginary line were treated to event after event where they could see and touch , go for joy rides and basically check out the cars.

    Four months later still nothing more than a VON in BX for 99% of us.
    Like the title says either we are the most diehard of the bunch or this country is doomed cause we are all INSANE

    i would opt for the insane part, i was at Carlisle in july and got to see Ralph tear up a green hellcat, with the traction control still on, after the burnout you could not even see the car, we will just have to wait until the spring for ours and watch with that green with envy as our friends to the south hug and love their rides up, don't worry we will get ours too.

    Words, well placed! I promised to harass my dealer weekly for updates until the keys are in my hand. I may even follow the salesman home... But that car better materialize!

    Wow! They took your trade and you don't have your Hellcat? Unbelievable! I am a true MOPAR fan, but I only have 1 car. I would be seriously toast if they took my car! So sorry to hear about the issues you have had. Sad to hear that Chrysler is not taking care of Canadian orders after opening the banks so long ago!:(

    Most of us understand and were willing to wait for spring delivery , the hard part for ALL CANADIANS is the complete lack of info thru out this whole process.
    Most haven't even seen a car in person, we placed deposits months ago and still wonder daily what will happen in the spring??!!
    How are CANADIANS supposed to know if their dealer is on the level? So many questions and we are just left in the dark.
    A simple phone call from FCA to say congratulations on your purchase and getting in line for a Hellcat. How bout an email? Anything.....
    We have no way of confirming our order and that we will ACCUALLY receive a car four months after order banks opened.
    I guess we are expected to sit back and wait 10 months and hope the dealer we are dealing with ISNT full of BS
    The longest winter ever for some of us and the really sad part is it really didn't have too be.
    Communication that's all we ask
