    Dropped by the dealership on the way home. Service manager told me the 3rd Hellcat delivered, I was #2, had the SC fail in under 30 miles. :eek: Just thought I would share.

    Did you drive it like you stole it for those 30 miles at least? That sucks by the way. . .

    1 SC fail (that we know of) in +/- 2k units is not so bad... still does suck for the unlucky lotto winner :(

    Meh... that's what warranties are for.

    I'm sure, like with any car, things can go wrong. If we were hearing about 100's of SC's going down I would lose some sleep.

    Makes you wonder, cause I thought they ran all engines on a dyno.

    IHI makes the supercharger. No doubt it is a top quality unit. With that said, a certain percentage of anything mechanical will break. Stuff breaks... FCA will make it right under warranty by replacing the unit (or repairing but my guess is they will outright replace any initial failures so they can get the bad units back and have engineering folks do a post mortem).

    My thought as well, we should make sure it's not the same car/SC.
