    No more Hellcat and to be honest I'm not that mad about it. I got my hellcat charger in B5 blue in March, had it less than 10 days and it went back to dealer for a massive paint issue. I was told I would get a replacement ASAP, after 40 days without a car I'm paying for, I was then told that I could either get it repainted at the dealer or get a refund, I could not get another Hellcat. I waited 7 months for that car and because Chrysler sent me a bad one I would have to get on the list again! I like the hellcat (even if it drives like a hockey puck) but I will not be bullied or beg to buy a car from Chrysler. I have had many SRT's but after this situation, I will never buy another Chrysler Vehicle again, I currently have 2 Chrysler 300's one is an Srt and one is an S. I am gonna run the Srt through an auction just to get rid of it and the S is a lease so I will ride it out "embarrassed" until it over. Chrysler has wronged me one too many times. They made a good car but they are a bad company in my eyes.

    On a great note, I took my money and added 15k and went and bought a brand new 2015 premium GTR with upgraded leather. Paid 85k and sticker was 108k, right now is the time to buy a GTR, se guys have bought closer to 80k without the upgraded leather. Car ran 10.803 on it first run at the track, bone stock!! Factory tires, plus I can turn, best decision I have ever made. It's a whole different kind of driving experience..

    I hope I run into you guys here and there, I just hope I run you guys on a track or in the street not on the highway as I'm sure I'll have my ass handed to me... But anything below a 50 roll or a dig, don't do it... Btw seen the video of the hellcat beating the less powered 09' GTR, never seen a GTR run 11.2 but I did see a hellcat at the track last week run an 12.3, so please never judge a car by it drivers or pass..

    Not a bad replacement, considered a GTR in the past myself. Sorry for your experience but understand your decision.

    Congrats on the GTR.

    Keep in mind every manufacturer has issues...just think if you bought a Z06 and blew the motor shortly after you bought it. Paint issues aren't good, but I'll take that over a blown motor.

    I'm interested in your opinion of Nissan after it eats its first transmission.

    Im glad that you took your money back and decided not to go the repaint route, or get back in line. I for one would have made your same decision. Also congrats on the GTR..... You sir have the best color one. Thats the color I was looking at. I had no Idea that they would negate that low. GOOD FOR YOU!!!!

    May I ask, what does the comment "even though it drives like a hockey puck", mean?
