    Was buying a 2015 with 600 miles and after starting up and driving the check engine light came on and appears to be in limp mode as RPM are not going over 2500 SOOOOO.... stealership stated they would fix tomorrow and deliver but so extremely Dissapointed about it, now iam wondering if it is even worth it at all or if I should move on to another cat but damn I was ready for the cat today #%#@%#@%#@%@

    Run away, run far run fast. There are too many other better cars out there. Why would a 2015 have only 600 miles, be up for sale, and have a check engine light? And don't tell me you were getting a good deal on it. The only reason for a good deal from a dealer is because the car has a problem. Run...

    Hello, and welcome to the forum! I am sorry that you have had that disappointment. I think you should move on to a different Hellcat. Where are you located?

    I agree, definitely do not buy this car. There are many good deals out there. Be patient you will find the right one for you.

    Ah, I was going to say that if you were open to a 2015 Redline A8 Challenger HC, I know of one coming available soon, in Georgia. It is my car and it is spotless, runs like a dream (I just traded it for a 2016 Plum Crazy HC that is in transit).

    We don't know what you are paying and we don't know what the problem is so I would be hesitant to say run away not knowing more.
    Seems like several HCs are being traded in with very low mileage. If it has been titled before it is a used car so you expect $ off.

    Welcome to the Forum and listen to these good people. They are many Hellcats around and something is wrong with your deal.

    welcome to the forum. I would keep looking and find the perfect one they are out there now. It would be worth finding out what had happened to it tho the dealer is likely to down play the issue.
