    Jeff from FCA no longer replies to my emails asking what's going on with my 9/9 order. So take it as him patting you on the back while he walks back to your place in von hell.

    I would bet that you are right, I just got to stay positive...... But I'm not a fool either, this will be my last month waiting for this car. I did my homework and found a good dealer,wrote the letter, and yet I still do not have a car. One of the guys that ordered after me has his vin. I know that it b/c he has a stick car but it really means jack sh@t to me. If they can put the auto in a charger they can put it in the challenger. I know its a pie in the sky dream. But we well see. good luck to everyone.;)

    Same thing here. email to Tim K. which was eventually responded to by Jeff D.

    Answers only opened more questions and he never answered any direct questions and I had a few that were certainly addressable by FCA. Jeff just kicked the can down the road and put a double lock on the gates to VON HELL.

    I did circle my feedback on the exchanges back to Tim K's email box. Nothing heard.

    I just got a response, from said person, I didn't like the respons , along with each mail and their constant typos of dealer vs dealers.

    I can't show his email, but I can share my response. Enough with the vague mystery allotment crap. If he had been designated as the mouth piece to respond to everyones emails and questions, then I guess I will just stop just asking about my order and start writing back what I want to say to whoever he is speaking for.

    ========••=•••

    This is Denis Jr, the other email was from my father. He is also the one that spoke with you and others on the phone in the beginning of February.

    Few things I want to write about.

    There seems to be a reoccurring typo in each email from you. That would be stating "dealer with too many orders". I believe you mean dealers, plural with an s.

    I believe "Dealer" didn't take more orders than could be sold, the truth is more orders were placed than FCA is willing to give "dealer". "Dealer" has sold orders, unlike the all the cars sitting on showroom floors with 10-30k markups which number more than what was ordered. Search cars.com . So I think the community sees it as "dealer" is able to move sold orders quickly and didn't submit "more than they could sell". FCA is just not fulfilling the orders.

    I can go on Allpar right now and link a document, written in January, that says "..dealers may order as many Hellcats as they wish.." which was released by FCA. This is after they had already said they were overloaded with orders.

    The CEO said in September he would build the cars if we ordered them. Build to demand, if I remember correctly. Yet I see old orders ignored and people placing orders in this calendar year, and already taking delivery.

    If the 9/9 orders and the others on the large list of enthusiasts with VONs, just on Hellcat.org alone, are to be either ignored or accepted by the "Executive Committee", then maybe they should tell the people waiting exactly that. I know I've emailed certain people at FCA and have gotten no response, while other get emails and phone calls.


    This is going into the 8th month for those of us with 9/9/14 orders. How long does the "Executive Committee" expect us to wait with no real answers, except for continually waiting for allocation periods each month to see if they've been "selected" to be able to purchase a car ordered 8-10 months ago.

    Have my unanswered emails been forwarded to said committee? Will this be forwarded as well? Is the committee reading Hellcat.org with it's large list of enthusiasts waiting with sold orders and seeing how they are getting aggravated with how this is all being handled? There seems to be a course correction each month, and the months are running out at this point.

    And I was told second Tuesday of the month of April for allocations. So the 14th I guess.

    Here's what will happen for 9/9 orders. Break out the K-Y

    Jeff is full of it, as is the folks that answer the phone at SRT. (I just got off the phone with them)

    If you have a VON... they just keep saying "talk to your dealer... they know why they have or have not any allocation".

    And the small dealer that sold orders at MSRP are going to say.... "the bigger dealer 30 miles up the road in a more populated city sold 5x the cars so they got the allocation, but they mark theirs up 20k" (And they're selling them)

    It's all Bullshit.
