no parts available

Discussion in 'New Member Introduction' started by DwightWallace, Jan 9, 2015.

  1. Got my hellcat on December 27. Drove it for a week before it blew a water pump.
    No parts available. Got to start the waiting game all over again.
    Why would they release a vehicle to the public before parts are available?

    Which water pump? Intercooler or engine coolant? Damn, if it was for anything except drivetrain related you should have been good. The glass on my outside mirror fell off, the dealer ordered it and its on the way. Let us know how long this takes. I am very interested to hear the rest of the story.

    Bad water pump and you can't get a replacement, cylinder misfire, cracked vanity mirror, parts falling off...maybe it's a good thing I'm having to wait....

    How many miles did you have on it?

    Don't forget the bad oil cooler line that started leaking...

    No car is defect free...although frustrating, there's going to be some issues - hence the warranty :)

    You can go buy new parts and have problem or they're not working, its the new American way. I've said it before customer service is dead

    I believe nothing gets done right the first time!!, unless you have customer service that really cares

    You mean the oops I spilled oil on the fender and took a pic, pic? There could possibly be a little trolling going on, on this site. Just trying to weed through the real and fake.
