    There have been quite a few complaints about problems with the Hellcat. I am starting this thread to document problems our forum brothers are having with their Hellcat. I have read many posts where people are sharing and complaining about their experiences with their Hellcat. I would request members of the forum to share these experiences and/or comment about them. But, without an organized documented explanation we are wandering in the wilderness. Pardon my expedience but see my post on the most serious incident: "Entire Engine Replaced"

    We have been beating the shit out of ours, and no problems yet, out of 2300 miles. It does have the rear end whine that a lot of folks speak of, though, but nothing catastrophic .

    No issues here except tire wear and fuel consumption. Both are to be expected though :cool:
