    This is pretty common. Mine was on hold for 5 days after being unloaded from the railcar. What they told me is that there were other cars at the rail yard that were older and would be delivered first, and that only so many cars could be delivered in one day. Your dealers inventory manager should be able to call the rail yard and talk to the transport people and maybe get some more information.

    You did want your Hellcat delivered with slick rear tires, right? They're just doing the "break in" for you at the rail yard.

    My dealer told me the same thing. Something about the interior and the leather.

    LOL.. Funny thing is, that was Ralph Gilles doing that burnout. What that video doesn't show, but others do, is Ralph forgot to turn off the traction control his first few attempts. Then he backs up and has it off.. that's where this video starts and he does the full on burnout.

    The other funny thing is, he drove that car to the show... but it was actually Brenna Kaufman's (Chief Challenger Engineer) personal car. Apparently she wasn't too happy about it and said he owed her a set of rear tires. :D

    Same issue here. Stuck up in Mesquite without any explanation. Temple only 3 hours south. Talked to dealership management; nothing. Talked to SRT; nothing. I was told at the dealer no later than the 9th. Three hours away for no good reason. Whoever Chrysler hired for shipping management obviously has an accountability issue.

    For what it's worth, a lot of us that have ours have went through that "last week wait with the car 30 miles away" deal. I believe it just comes with the package... probably should be on the listed in the standard features on the sticker...

    Good news is you pretty much forget about all that once you start it up:) - Have a great time with your ride!

    Does this hold go over the projected delivery date?
