    Did the sales person sit with you in the car and go over the touch screen and navigation options for the settings in the car? Were they knowledgeable?

    Let us know your experience. Thanks

    Yes he was their Viper Specialist and very knowledgeable.. I told him he didn't need to go on after a min or two as I was up to date on features and function.

    Yes, mine sat in the car with me, went through everything, and set up my UConnect account. I got 1 free year with UConnect and a free year with Sirius XM Radio. He even had it covered in the showroom waiting for me, so that nobody else could touch it.

    Yes, my salesmen set with me but after a few minutes I had to cut him off. I had read the manuals front to rear and I was more knowledgeable then him.;)

    I even showed him the little Challenger in the front window and the Dodge Brothers logo in the center console. We both got a big laugh out of that. He was like, how do you know all this stuff. :)

    I knew more about the car than anyone at the dealer. My salesman jokingly asked if there is anything I needed help with... We both got a kick out of that one.

    Salesman are generally clueless on these cars. I heard a story on the other forum of a 'helpful' salesman saying he would order a new part ASAP since his front left inner light had a hole in it! :D

    I'm with tsc,, I was the one telling everyone about the car,, even random people coming in for service,, I was there 8 hours waiting for paperwork, trade in,, cleaning, so I got to talk with a lot of people,, the dealer even bought me lunch..come to think about it,, that was a very exciting day,, to hear the car start for the very first time,, there really is no other stock car from the factory that can compare.

    My dealer had the SRT tech give me a crash course on what would void my warranty and proper break in procedures. After that was Hellcat IT 101 with one of their people that had been sent to a Uconnect class. She was the last obstacle between my car and the road so I very politely told her to pound sand.

    Nope, but I read the manual before I took delivery so I pretty much knew about everything, my dealer was always busy with something else. I just had them fill the tank with gas and I was outta there.
