    After 197 miles, I noticed a dark line in the color coat of my bumper cover on my Charger HC. FCA promptly agreed to authorize the repair at an excellent body shop nearby. I am attaching a picture for those who are interested in seeing the line in the paint.

    Who'd you go through; your dealer or FCA direct?

    I am going thru my dealer now as well. I just dropped off this week and in a loaner car for maybe 2-4 weeks as they work it out with FCA. 1st step they are going to buff and clay bar to see what comes out. 22 defects in all on my Charger HC. I have similar spots that look like drips in my paint. Mine look more pinkish in color on my bright white. I have other issues of rusty looking spots all over the front quarter panels and bumper. I also just noticed this week cracking of the paint like fine strands of hair on the front driver side quarter panel, front, and rear bumper. Just a horrible paint job....we will see.

    It passed the Fucknell inspection probably. Who paints these cars? The enemy?

    I don't have any drips in my Jazz blue finish, but rather some areas look like it didn't get hit with 'enough' paint (i.e. very light). Such as the corners of the trunk next to the rear windshield. My concern is whether or not this area would be prone to rust quicker than normal in our Ohio weather.

    I've got 21 and counting white buffer marks ... And the front facia paint is so thin you see the primer bleeding through, they want to wet sand my car and re-spray clearcoat I don't know if I'm going for that . image.jpg

    They gave me a 20k Chrysler 200 as a loaner here to drive while they work out my defects... and damn if I can't find a single paint issue on this loaner car at 1/3rd the cost of the HC. There is something seriously wrong with this picture. Too many people with the same flaws on their Hellcats. Just not right.
