    Just spoke with my sales rep he says for all cars that come in their service guy (in this case the guy they have who tests the dodge Vipers) have to do a PDI test drive between 5 to 15 miles on your new car to make sure there are no issues then park them on the lot. This has to happen as soon as the hellcat is delivered apparently so to those who want no Miles on your engine, sorry it won't be happening lol

    I meant they have to test drive before putting it on the lot and actually making it sellable to the customer.

    Yeah, I have already had this discussion with my dealer. I already found out who the SRT certified tech is and will be involved in the ride along. I am not very trusting when it comes to my baby. They wouldn't expect me to just hand a child over, why would this be any different? LOL :D

    Interesting. I plan to be there to video it coming off the truck and stuff. Maybe they will let me ride along with the service guy?

    Is there a way to skip the PDI test drive? We have salt on our roads already.

    But when your child is born you do hand the kid over to the doctor for some tests.... You saying this is more important than a child? Lol... Note I'm not saying one way or the other lol

    If they are trusted with a six figure viper I'd trust them with my Hellcat. Besides what do you think happens if you take your car in for warranty work? Some ones going to have to drive it at some point. Lol
