    hi all
    I'm upgrading my 2010 SRT Plum Crazy 6 spd to a PHG hellcat I ordered back in May 2015 and in the orderbank first day Aug.1/2015
    Got a call from my salesman that yesterday saying we have the allocation for your car 100% but I gotta change the color!!! Here we go again!!!
    I told him why would I wait for a year to get a car and now you go do this... FCA in Windsor office couldn't help out at all very poor customer resolution if you ask me.
    Now I gotta change my color just to get the car even thou I've had a VON# since May 2015.
    Does anyone have advice?
    Thx

    Friend of mine had his PCP order kicked back a few days after he ordered it last month. The factory rep said nothing could be done the allocation was gone so he changed the color to the new Mango.

    Welcome to the wonderful FCA world of Hellcat ordering!

    Start your search...

    Cars.com lists 530 Challenger Hellcats
    of those, 101 are PCP
    28 Manual, 24 Auto, 49 unknown (may not specified)

    Got to be one in there like you want it @ MSRP
    Good Luck!!!

    TN I ordered the car first day the banks opened up August 15/2015 this is totally unacceptable
    I went through this when my dealership tried to sell off my 2010 SRT PCP 6 spd order

    Toolman I'm in Canada and with the exchange rate and taxes bring a car over the border I'd get skewered on the price!

    Damn man that sucks. I know FCA has not been very good to the Canadian orders. Unfortunately there's nothing u can do. PCP will be out of production. U could always wrap the car in purple though if u don't like any other colors available

    Car will need to be at least 6 months old and be used, before you can even consider importing it.
    I went thu the same BS last year with mine and had to find one, just find one on the lot and buy it, lick your wounds and move on.
    Contact Mathieu at Blvd Dodge in Montreal, he may be able to help you

    You are not alone in this dept. Happened to Quite a few of us,
    More than I can Count...
    To Get the Golden Handshake you have to be willing to fork out at a
    minimum 15k..
    You Can find a "Stock Order" that was ordered,my guess there will be one,
    You must find it and be willing to pay for the ADM.
    Hopefully it will Have your trans choice/roof choice/interior choice!
    Good Luck Man,
    Know you are not the only one this happened to....

    Shoddy FCA business practices!
    Guys with original 2014/Through 2015 orders have abandoned them,
    Go to another dealer,
    Pay the 2016 msrp and get vins shortly after....
    I call that collusion!
