    Just got my hellcat a few days ago and part of it was due to reading this forum!

    I live in the hot desert area already reached 100 degrees and can reach 120 degrees in August. This car is my Sunday car and not my daily driver so it will be stored in my unconditioned garage most of the time. Will the cat be ok stored in a hot garage for 5 days at a time? Even hotter in the garage so 120 plus.

    Currently I am thinking just opening up the garage daily to ventilate and maybe even a door/ crack a window.

    Anyone on this boat? I apologize if this is a silly question or if it seems OCD-ish, I am new to the world of nice cars.

    Just think how good you have it that it's not out in the sun at those temps. I'd crack the windows a little if it were mine.

    do they make air conditioners for your garage?

    here in WI it didnt even hit 90 degrees in 2014
    i think we didnt even have many 80 degree days now that i think about it.......maybe 20-30 the whole summer

    if the humidity is low i dont think 100 degrees does anything

    No worries man, most of Phoenix is in the same boat and while there are a ton of really nice cars here there are hardly any air conditioned garages. I take that as an indication there's nothing to be concerned about. If anything turn on a fan just to keep there air moving in there but even that is likely unnecessary.

    B5 thanks for reminding me how fortunate I am to just have a garage!
    I did consider installing a garage wall unit AC, but will probably just crack the windows during the week days not driven and ventalilate the garage from time to time.
    Finance guy was taking about how some operating systems have failed on late model dodges due to heat, wanted me to bite on the 7 year extended warranty..
