    Looking for advice on where to take my HC for service. Anyone here use a dealer in NM with an SRT certified tech they can recommend?

    Thanks,
    Jason

    Haven't had mine in for service but the guys at the parts counter at Melloy were very knowledgeable on Hellcats and were able to and willing to help me over the phone when my local dealer had no idea. They have probably sold more than anyone in NM. I'm also very worried about taking mine since my local dealer isn't very knowledgeable. Let me know if you find a good one down there. I might have to go for a drive;)

    Oil changes, maintenance, etc. Just wanted to find someone I can work with so I know who is doing the work and that they are trained.

    I do my own maintenance , I feel no one will treat my car as well as me. I am in Rio Rancho, if you need any help let me know. I can walk you through all the routine maintenance .

    Thanks very much for the offer. I don't think I have the time or the aptitude to do it myself right now, but I could probably use some advice in the future.

    So, here is what I learned so far. I called Melloy Dodge in Albuqueruqe and they said they have 3-4 SRT certified techs on staff who are up to date on their training.
    When I bought my car, the salesperson told me that a good way to get a recommendation is to talk to the local Viper club. I did, and the president of the NM Viper club highly recommended Andy (SRT Tech) at Larry H Miller in Albuquerque.
    It does seem that Melloy has more techs (and probably sells more Hellcats), but LHM is much closer to me and has the recommendation of the Viper club.
    I think I am going to try out LHM when I am due for the first service, but it sounds like either may be a good choice.
    I'll post more if I find out anything else.

    If anyone else has any good or bad info for places to use in NM, I'd love to hear it (service, parts, tinting, detail, anything).

    Congrats on the Charger HC...Great car if I say so myself!

    Can't say who but 3m Crystalline is the what for tinting! Best performance out there in all categories especially heat rejection.
