    I just picked up my 2016 Hellcat last week, less than 400 miles on it. Got out after a 30 minute drive home to find this in the front.

    Not lights in the dash and I can't tell exactly where it's coming from. I am assuming radiator but I thought that was supposed to be fixed and I didn't see any with it happening so soon.

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks,
    Jason

    Have it towed to your dealer and have it fixed under warranty?

    don't drive it unless your close to the dealer or you are absolutely certain there is coolant in the car and you can get there. I have seen and heard of this issue, sucks to have it happen.

    good call michael too!!!!

    anything can break.. NASA has unlimited budgets and the greatest minds in the world and they have trouble with quality control..

    you have a warranty and a dealer.

    doubt if there is any damage with a leak that small.

    my 2 cents..

    Dealership just called, said the coolant reservoir was cracked and they won't have a new one until Friday :(

    Just glad it wasn't something worse.
