    Has anyone heard any horror stories minus the 1st day crash ups. I have one, I was at the dealer picking up my Hellcat and the dealer told me they sold one to a guy in Texas when it came instead of arriving with 2 red keys and one black it showed up only with TWO BLACK KEYS. and get this, for the red key they have to order it and it would take 4 months to arrive. Then another story I heard is a with Hellcats on the bottom row was coming through Boston. During or right after a snowstorm, now all my brothers and sister from the Northeast know that roads get salted during a snowstorm well the fine folk of Boston use some extra curricular crap on there roads which is almost gravel like and all the Hellcats on the bottom row of the truck looked like they had been in a shootout. what stories you guys got.

    Not necessarily a "horror story" but it's similar to yours. Mine showed up with 1 red and 1 black key. It took less than 2 weeks to get the other red key so I'm calling BS on your dealer.

    At you least you had a red key. For mine though they only had the red key at first then after looking around they found my other two keys. maybe they meant 4-6 weeks. but they told me months (maybe for the sake of the story who knows.)

    That is not true. FCA will never allow that to happen. Plus now we have Funknell or Fucknell double inspecting our cars to check that everything is fine and in place and delaying the delivery a few days JUST to be sure that you get your keys and your car in shape.

    my Horror story: I ordered my car on 10/17/2014, and still only have a VON. My dealer has taken 15 orders, now dealers can only get 1 car per month if they get one at all.

    All cars must leave the plant with 2 red and 1 black key we run a electrical test just before the car is released to the shipping yard to confirm no fault codes , the keys and a few other items. So keys getting lost are shipping company or storage yard issues.

    Driving down the freeway at around 80 with nowhere to go while a giant blue tarp floats right in front of you and BAM! right into the splitter and under the car. No damage but enough to make my testicles rise up to my throat in pain and anger. Right before Spring Fling too.. GRR. People need to tie down their shit and the PoPo needs to slam and ticket trucks that drop rocks and over all don't secure their loads.

    They are not that good. After delaying mine for (inspection) missed a major lets say blemish on the passenger door. A real expert will evaluate it Saturday morning but I dont think paintless paint repair will work. That was quickly suggested the other day.
    It is a strange spot but whatever happened was there before it got painted. No problem if the paintless won't work this guy will make that door look just fine.
