    I know most people don't post when everything is great with their car, so when people do posts issues everyone thinks the Hellcats are problematic.

    I have 20,000 miles on my car and have owned it for 1 year and 4 months with no issues.

    Let's see if this poll can show some insight on the percent of people that have had issues.

    Vote for issues if they are really issues that have required prolonged service:

    Engine blown
    Supercharger replaced
    Radiator replaced
    etc...

    I don't know if you have enough categories for this poll. My Hellcat has been flawless mechanically. I did get the radiator replaced as it did not pass the crimp test but it never leaked. I also had fuel rail recall done... but it never leaked. I had the HK Amp replaced & reflashed it always worked but didn't sound good. Mine was an early build #310 ;)

    2015 needed sc replaced because cac plumbling leaks inside the sc were allowing sc coolant into the intake during combistion, that only happened when the engine was cold. Which was the reason I ended up with the 2016, which has a bad sc bearing, so its being replaced; less than 260 miles on it.

    Still love the car sh#t happens they cant all be perfect, but those things (rare to my knowledge) did / are frustrating to me, but I am happy with how addressed.

    Battery died. Don't know actual failure mode. But it could not be "jumped". Probably a shorted cell.

    At the same time inner-cooler pump assembly needed replaced.

    Solved in a day. Parts took another day.
    Worst part was I needed to change battery to get it to the dealer.

    Fuel leak issue, still unresolved 2 weeks after delivery on March 4, 2016. Wrong parts ordered first week, bad diagnosis. Supposed parts to fix are delayed almost a week, go figure. Estimated fix date of March 23, 2016. I suspect part of the issue is that the dealership fixing is not the selling dealership, they just don't seem to care enough. Even SRT is seemingly useless. Too many "sorry about your issue" and not enough working hard to make sure it gets fixed. Lousy customer service all the way around. Worst experience ever for a new car purchase, and I've bought over 30 cars so far in my life. I've owned 11 Mopars, but this is the last one.

    Late April build, took delivery on May 5th/2015.
    Went on a road trip end of May early June (8 days) and put on 4,500 miles.
    Came home and had the ZF flashed, no other issues since, will find out how the KITTY performs when she comes out from winter hibernation.

    Dante was one of the earlier released cars, ordered on 9/13/14, and delivered on 12/17/14. Had him for 15 months, and 5300 miles ... he was great, never had a single issue!

    Lots of trouble reports, and our own small poll at 33% so far. Doesn't look good for a production car... until you compare it to the small list of other 700 hp cars. Lamborghini has a horrendous list of quality problems in their past, that make the Hellcat issues look like Toyota-level reliability, by comparison.
