    Anyone elses Front Bumper and Fascia/Grill rubbing together? The paint looks like it's pushed up or rubbed up against each other. The older challengers had this issue with the clips breaking or just bending and wondering if anyone else has this issue. It's not as noticable but I'll post some pictures.

    Cube, mine has the same thing. Maybe about 1/2 the size of yours , but in the exact same spot. I never noticed it, but my wife did. I am not even gonna mess with it. It is so minor and they would probably make it worse if they tried to fix it. Mine was built on 5/25.

    Snappycat, Dustin on DriveSRT Hotline/Chat has been building a case on them. It will get worse as other owners started with what i have and it just keeps rubbing. The dealership is going to take photos today and ill let everyone know what happens.

    Jeff from SRT told the Dealership the fix is replacing the front bumper and fascia, then respraying. The dealership wants me to use their shop as they say it has to be their Chrysler bodyshop for the warranty to work, I told them if the paint doesn't match, if there is any fisheyes or etc it's coming right back to them. Overspray in the engine bay or etc or badges don't line up perfectly i'll be back till they make it right.

    Trying to reach out to Jeff to make sure that he himself said that or the dealer just wants the money for the work.

    SRT wants to have my bumper taken off and painted, and there is a fix so it doesn't do it again,, problem is that I don't like the idea of the bumper coming off and being repainted on my brand new car...

    They already don't match from factory, Your best chance at having it match decently is to have a pro body shop blend it. New car or not, I pay 70k i expect it to be near perfect.

    I contacted Destan at SRT...the case mgr for this issue and he said to have my dealer take a photo and forward it to him along with my case number. I will do that, but really not thinking of getting it fixed because it is soooo minor. Just want to have it documented in case it gets worse.

    I have the same "rubbing" issue on my front facia. I don't like it, but didn't think it was something the dealer would do anything about other than shrug off. The typical answer for pretty much any probelm is, "that's normal".
