    Today I noticed the car smoking out the hood slightly when I parked and got out. Upon inspection under the hood and underneath the car I found a bright green fluid leaking from somewhere. Initially I thought that I had the known radiator issue, but the fluid did not smell of coolant/antifreeze, oil, or transmission fluid. Took it into the dealer who found a cut AC hose. By the time I got to the dealer it had all leaked out and the AC was no longer blowing cold. Hose is on order and should arrive in a few days so, due to this & combined with 100 degree temps here currently, my HC is parked until it can be repaired :( Anyone else had this issue?

    I have had the car since March 20th. It has ~6,750 miles on it currently. Charger HC #305. The issue arose on my drive home from an oil change at the dealership so it could have been a service tech error while removing or reattaching the undertray. Of course they claim it just coincidentally occurred on my drive home after the oil change :( At least it is warrantied!

    Ummmmm.....someone messed up. I would not take it back there again until the service manager can prove that something like that wont happen again. Sorry man.
