    I've been driving Dodge/Jeep my whole life. I put $5,000 down for a Hellcat almost 5 months ago. Now my dealer tells me that no Canadian orders will be filled until all US orders are filled. So even though I put money down 5 months ago, someone can walk into a dealer in the US next week and get their car first. Screw you Dodge! They can assure me that I will get one, but can't even tell me which year it will delivered in. This has poisoned my view on the entire Chrysler lineup and will likely keep me from buying Chrysler again. To openly treat customers with such disrespect and unfairness - Dodge should be ashamed. I haven't been treated this poorly since trying to change my cable TV package with Rogers.

    I understand your frustration & agree with you that Chrysler/ Dodge really screwed the pooch on this allocation shate! I am waiting till spring /early summer before I pull the pin. But if I do; that's it... I won't be bitten twice! I always like MOPAR products & have been a repeat customer. I guess I'll wait & see how they treat me in the New Year?

    Well, I hope you're right. My dealer can't get any information out of Dodge. Only that I will get one sometime in 2015 or 2016. They certainly don't want to share any information. I'll wait until spring before pulling the plug, but may start to research an alternative toy for the spring.

    they should build them for Canadians, but only give them the black key

    they are too passive for the red key.......


    cant you just order one from across the border and drive it back?

    Not chance. The red tape to import a new car into Canada is unbelievable.

    Nope! I would have done that in a heartbeat... Manufactures & dealers closed that loop. And try to get a warranty honored on a U.S. purchased vehicle is a nightmare on to itself.

    Ask your dealer if he knows something about the 12 Grand cherokee SRT nightmare. If he says yes immediately then you know why he is over cautious by not making promises. My dealer keeps bringing that one up saying it took some customers 2 years to get their SUVs and so on...

    From what you are saying it sounds like all he wants is to be upfront and not guarantee you will get your car in 2 months or something like that which is a good attitude on their part. The real info is on here. I even told the sales director about the charger hellcat opening up on the 9th and he said "Thanks for the heads up". They are clueless but remember we are the 1% of their customer base.

    We all think we are "big shot" because we order hellcats and pay big bux for them but realistically, we are nothing to them. Most of the time, just annoying customers that keep bugging them for status updates. I'm not mad, I know the game and I don't expect nothing in return. Pay as low as possible, get the car and get out

    Even if we were allowed to (all the reason stated above), the dollar is at 85 cents now so we would end up loosing money anyways

    Yeah you all are jst building them and obviously saving them money...gosh forbid they take care of the guys who build the darn things for us! Lol. It sounds like they are getting there. I would be curious to know why your order banks opened so much earlier, but not built earlier? Odd chain of events...o_O

    I think you should start talking to other dealers, and email Chrysler, and look for answers.. please don't give up, Lord knows a wanted too, this forum will help talk you down from the ledge, I know because I was ready to just ship , but I would like to think I have a few friends here that helped calm me down...

    Could it be that maybe, just maybe, your dealer is trying to get you to back out of the deal - so he can tack on a huge DMA when the car comes in and sell it to an unsuspecting fool with more money than common sense?
    Hang in there. Why not wait it out? What have you got to lose - except your shot at a Hellcat - that you'd regret for a very long time?
