    part of me is glad a bunch of you got this car first....i'm totally violating my "don't buy anything the first year it's out rule". seriously, hopefully it's something minor, let us know.

    I took my Hellcat out for a drive today and after a small spirited run, the check engine flashed and then went off. The car then shook whenever you gave it any throttle. Thankfully, I was close to my dealership and I drove it in. This is what I was told. Chrysler cannot tell them anything until Monday. Hope I don't have a bad lifter or valve spring. Just turned over 1500 magnificent miles. I am depressed to say the LEAST.

    Gotta be a fuel issue or compression issue with all the air this thing sucks in. Horrible in every way. Maybe be immature, but I am really low from this. Worked too hard to get my girl and unlike anything else..whatever I put into it...I always get back. Hard for most to understand.

    Don't be upset yet. Could be something minor.

    No matter what it is fixable. Could even be something stupid simple like a bad plug or coil. Who knows. Wait and see what happens.

    Good luck and let us know how you make out!!
