    Has anyone taken delivery of a Hellcat with absolutely no damage? My Hellcat had a small dent on the roof that the Dent Guy will have to massage out. Otherwise, my car was in good shape.

    My shipping company, Dependable Auto Shippers, damaged the front air dam when the hold down chains rubbed against it during transport. I filed a claim for the $126 part bought the new air dam from a local dealer. The company called me up, admitted they did the damage but the told me they wont reimburse me because my shipping contract had s $250 deductible clause. This was after a 10 day delay and then making me go with an open carrier after paying for enclosed transport by telling me an enclosed transport might be another 3-4 weeks. Is hate too strong of a word? At least I have my Cat, well worth the brain damage.

    RobM,

    Sorry for the ordeal you had to go through! I have heard other people had damage to their air dams during shipping. I hope your Hellcat is fixed and up to your standards!

    StellasHC,

    Sorry for your damage. That was the first thing I checked on mine, but it was alright! I heard people had their black rims scrapped.

    Litsout,

    Sorry for your air dam damage. So far it looks like the majority of the damage has been the air dams.

    I've had Dependable Auto Shippers ship two motorcycles for me, each time there was at least one dent caused by improper tiedowns. Sorry for your trouble.

    No damage on mine that I have been able to identify. I didn't see it come off the carrier, but I was at the dealer within 30 minutes of its arrival. If any damage was present, I doubt that there was enough time lapsed to allow the dealer to correct it without my knowledge. Mine was the second Hellcat received by the dealer. Maybe they (dealers and transporters) have learned some things "not to do" after a few early mishaps? Vipers are shipped with the front splitters off and need to have them dealer installed. If the problem persists, I wouldn't be surprised if they follow the same protocol with Hellcats in the future.

    The dealer i bought mine from received 4 hellcats and had to replace the splitter on all 4 due to damage during shipping.

    Well, if someone is watching this site from Dodge then they should notice that the majority of the problems have been the front air dam/splitter. Like gts_2001 said, like the Vipers, maybe Dodge should have the air dam/splitter installed on the Hellcats at the dealer after the dealer accepts delivery. Just a thought or my 2 cents!

    Maybe they should leave off the front air dam for shipping and install it as part of the PDI process?

    Mine had a scratched spoiler (which is common) and I found out after I got the car that the dealer replaced 1 of the rims that was damaged.
