    I just recently purchased a 2015 Challenger Hellcat. I notice when I am going up a slight incline for example from a flat surface to an incline approximately 1-1/2 to to 2 feet long at about 15 to 20 degree incline the automatic transmission seems to initiate going into neutral and then back to drive. There are no warning lights coming on in the vehicle and it seems to be running fine. Is there any information that Dodge installs some kind of safety feature for preventing the scratching of the front / bottom of the vehicle. The beast has 1000 miles and is 3 weeks old. I p/u the vehicle in Austin Texas and drove it back to Houston. I ordered the car on Sep 26, 2014.

    I going to drop the vehicle off today so they can check it. Appreciate any response.

    Thanks

    Chris

    Are you sure its not one of the back wheels slipping? Somebody earlier had a similar problem going up a driveway. It kinda sounds something like that.

    Thank you for the responses. I do not think it is the back tire spinning. Transmission fluid is fine.

    Mine does the same thing when I pull into my driveway. I've not been able to confirm the wheel slipping thing yet, but figure that's what it is.

    Today I dropped my 2010 Ram 1500 Laramie at Allen Samuel's Dodge in Katy for a Transmission change and replace the seat motor on drivers side. I asked the service tech and they told me the car has memory on the 8 speed and is using it's form of AI. I was like WTH, artificial intelligence. I am not sure about this, lol, any way the car is running fine and when I p/u the truck I will drop the little pussy and see what they can find out. I love this car.

    I work downtown Houston and park in a garage full of attorneys w/ their AMG, GTR, Ferrari's, Bentley s, atc...,, and everybody stops and takes picture and looks at the Hellcat. The car just smashes all of em.
