    Hey Guys, today me and my family are heading to Greenwood, SC (3 Hour Drive). We are gonna drive the hellcat, but one problem....it's probably gonna rain off and on, on the way there! Should I be worried about water infiltrating the vents? Also, what's up with the locks? When someone is in the back, and I park the car, the door locks should unlock automatically right? Anyone else have this issue?

    Car doors never unlock automatically. Don't worry about the rain, we had weeks of heavy rain down here and what I do is wipe down the engine bay when I park in between my car washes. Sometimes I am in a hurry and don't get to each time but it's perfectly safe

    they designed the car to handle the rain....the hood vents dont let water get anywhere they arent supposed to

    i believe my doors unlock when i put it in park...must be a charger thing.....

    Oh, i thoight it was something all cars did. My BMW 535 did it but it had a weird feature called double pull door handles. Pull Once-unlocks door. Pull again- opens the door. I guess im just not used to having to unlock the doors with the door buttons, just something i have to keep in mind. Anyhow, Thanks for the help guys, much appreciated! Looks like I'm gonna enjoy the weekend in the coolest car around. :cool:

    Personal experience with snow, ice and heavy rain on Hellcats... parked or moving and not a single issue. No worries.. they wouldn't put something out there you can't drive in all conditions.
