    Just a heads up. I've only got 5000km on my car and the rad cracked and needed to be replaced. I'm not the first 15 SRT to have this problem so keep an eye out for puddles under the front of your car.

    Wow I wonder if they are made in China or something? My interior door handle broke after a month. I didn't have any issues at all on my 09 RT.

    They are all the same aren't they. GM, Ford, Honda. Not very quick to own up to a mistake.

    Wow. Have you scheduled the fix with your dealer yet? Any issues having it covered? I'm still waiting for mine to arrive and I'd be interested if it was just something on earlier batches...

    Presently 5000 miles

    Just had radiator replaced. Hour drive back home. Parked it and found spot on floor where it was for leaking rad. Will drive again tomorrow and hopefully no spots but right now I wonder if the replaced radiator bad too. How many sitting in warehouse are bad?

    Later than that #769910 built in February. Blew it doing road racing, it was just seeping running normal on the street, but saw evidence of impending problems during an oil change one week before racing. So we were looking for it. After racing I was able to drive 120 miles home and to the dealer. SRT stands for Speed Racing Tough.
