    Picked up my Hellcat today got 15 km and it over heated and pushed coolant out on the ground. Great for a new car. Guess the fan isn't coming on to cool engine. Great product Chrysler.....

    Well I guess the coolant fan doesn't work and faulty relay. Tech tells me.not something covered in a PDI inspection really. So then they tell me the part is in the USA and 7 to 15 days to get it in NS Canada. What the Hell!!!! Pardon the pun.

    No. Fan works fine. They said they didn't run the car on a test drive as they knew I wouldn't be happy. So really I may have created my own issue. That's what I said.
    Either way, they gave me a Challenger to drive while they worked on it. Then when they had it done, they called me and asked if I wanted to come test drive it or if I was ok with the mechanic doing it. I said no I would come and he could come with me. Lol.

    Okay. If they told you it was the fan like you stated at first coupled with not checking operation on PDI I'd be looking for another tech or dealer

    The test they did was to check the fan operation via a computer. They basically set the computer to turn the fan on at a set % however it didn't come on in their first test.

    As far as the PDI goes. They expected me to do the test drive portion with them when I picked it up. But I took it early today to get windows tinted.

    They were real good about it and helpful. Gave me a new Challenger off the lot so I could leave and have a chance to cool my head. Lol. REALLY gave me a chance to see the difference in base to a hellcat. Lol
