    I'm new to the forum and soon to be a hellcat owner.
    I placed my order for a Sublime green cat just a few days ago. Ever since I saw this car I fell in love with it. It will be my first Dodge. As a teenager I've always loved cars and engines and I've owned my share of fast cars so I'm no stranger to horsepower and the sound of 707 is music to my ears.

    They said it will take about 3 months for my car which I'm very anxious of but at least winter will be done with by then. I ordered a Sublime green cat with Navi. No other options. Would've liked a sunroof but not a necessity on a car like this for the price. More things to break anyway. I did try for the black hood but they said it wasn't available then. They'll try to paint it for me somehow they said if I really want it later.

    On that note, since I'm new to the Challenger lineup and I understand a good portion of the vehicle is new technology, has anybody had any issues at all with electronics or anything like that, that I should know ahead of time?

    Thanks

    Welcome, wait until you sit in the cock pit of the hellcat if you haven't already. Fire up the start button and rumble rumble

    Welcome. As for your question my 2014 R/T MAX hasn't had any issues and the Hellcat has about the same equipment less ACC.

    I've done that virtually on youtube listening to the engine rumble and man, it just gives me chills. Such an awesome sound. Imagine in person when I get that baby.

    The only issue if you could called it that, is the UConnect initially was a bit slow changing functions, and about 1 week after I had mine, they put out an update. After that was applied, all was well in paradise.

    Welcome to the forum, Video of the exhaust start up is nothing compared to the real thing, your going to love it,, I few of us are having issues with the drivers door lock not unlocking in the first try, I.E reach for the handle and it doesn't unlock the first time.. Tammie and I are having the same issue, and as others have said, there is a software update for the radio.. Your truly going to love this car..

    Welcome!

    I had a 09 R/T and 12 SRT and now I have the Hellcat. Both the 09 and 12 had the Nav (so does the Hellcat) and I had absolutely no issues with any electronics on any of the previous cars.
