    I have a green sublime Hell Cat that I took delivery on back in Feb of this year. I received the first Hell Cat that was delivered to this dealer. Last week I was at the dealer for my free Hell Cat oil change and noticed another Hell Cat parked on the lot exactly like mine. I asked the sales manager who's cat? He looked at me kind of funny and said that was the second cat delivered to our dealership. The manager then proceeded to tell me that Dodge was initiating a buyback on the car from the owner!? He then told me that the car under the hood had caught on fire from the faulty fuel rail. Anyway as I was looking at the inside of the car, I noticed that all the stitching on the seats and steering wheel were sublime green thread. In my cat the stitching is all white?

    sublime was a 2015 color not offered in the 2016s.
    chances are he may have died the stitching to match

    Stitching was probably dyed.

    There's some type of pen that people use for stitching, I've seen it on another forum. Very time consuming though lol

    I had no idea about a "pen" being available so thanks Desj06 for your post. I keep my car very clean inside and out but if the stitching ever starts to
    discolor, I'll be looking for one of those pens to "dye" or re-color the stitching to black or green to make it look better. (although I hope I never need
    to worry about that)
