    While I'm SUPER happy about my car and enjoying it, the small things that can easily be fixed are annoying me as a IT Admin who loves his technology working properly or has company support.

    1) Charger has auto down side mirrors while in reverse the challenger doesn't.


    Seriously, this is a software feature not hardware unless its using the memory seats to program where the mirrors are which shame on dodge for not putting memory seat functionality hidden away in the car just so we can have the auto down side mirrors in reverse. (Trust me it wouldn't be the first time dodge threw tech into cars hidden away or half assed).

    2) HK System sounds muddy no matter Radio,SiriusXM,Bluetooth,SD,USB,Bandliterallyplayingliveinmycarinthebackseat

    Hey here's a 63k car and here's 18 speakers of pure mud, Seriously my 08 Charger SRT with it's 8 speaker system with the kicker sounds better. I'm really dissatisfied with the speaker system and don't know if it's hardware or a software thing again.

    I know there is a TSB but my car was recently built and doesn't qualify apparently.

    3) Theres no way to submit feed back to Dodge or SRT directly on features we want for our entertainment system.

    Seriously, SRT/Dodge needs to have a way to let us suggest features as a community and have them added to the GPS like patching a game or software. I should be able to hit Voice command and say "Find Yonkers, NY" and it'll automatically take me to the city center. Something i should be able to properly send to the right channels and have it added/patched in the next software update if the community majority suggests it.

    4) i was promised cars to kill, no one wants to be killed


    seriously, second i drove off the dealers lot everyone went into the bushes with their "hellcat killers"

    I would LOVE the auto down mirrors. This is my first vehicle with a backup cam so I'm still getting use to it and good lord I'm having issues with parking straight with that fish eye lens in the back. I need to go back to using my mirrors and only glance at the camera

    Dodges/FCA answer: you bought a 72k, hire someone to roll your windows down for you

    Too many idiots rolled their windows down by "butt dialling" and then bitched their car was full of rain.

    3) Agreed

    4) haha totally!!!!

    Pretty sure the side mirror tilt function is imbedded in the infotainment software ;) I dealer tech with a clue and a cool demeanor can make your FCA car or truck do a few things you didn't know it could.....

    I'm actually surprised this could happen, it literally takes perfect timing on the two presses to make the windows go down.

    With the advanced age of most Hellcat buyers, FCA ran string between the eighteen speakers.
