    It’s now more than two months since my Hellcat was ordered and $5000 deposit taken. But there’s still 10 orders ahead of mine at the dealer in Ontario Canada. Guess I’m starting to face the sad reality that by the time I get my $82,000 Chrysler there will be a new HP king. That’s depressing.

    JULY 24th for me, same dealer! Been waiting for 8 months already and they have only received one car... 3 orders ahead of me still.
    I have serious doubts I'll see a car this year. When I ordered I was told spring delivery. They just aren't releasing these cars too Canada . Thursday will start my 9th month with a Von , maybe you'll have better luck than me

    Yeah, my heart goes out to everyone who has had orders in for many months and no VIN in sight. I am really hoping by closing new orders they can get all the builds done. It is awesome that there was such an overwhelming demand for this awesome car. I know Dodge is trying to get things sorted out. I cannot help but blame dealers who did not provide realistic expectations for builds. I heard that a lot of Canadian dealers actually took the trade ins back in July on the Challenger and some of those guys are still waiting for a car! That is horrible. I sure hope you both see some updates soon. Best of luck my Northern family!

    My dealer has been getting 1 HC a month. At this rate I'm looking at a January 2016 delivery.

    Traded my 2013 Ram Sport 4x4 Quad cab a week after placing my order when I was called and told my order had been Approved, bring in my trade........

    Your dealer has received ONE CAR in the 8 months since I placed my order! I wish they were getting one a month.....

    OMG! I am so sorry! Since my Hellcat is my daily driver, if they would have taken my Charger before I got my car, I would have been taking the bus and walking. I cringe. Always someone who invades your space bubble on the bus!:eek:

    If the dealers don't get "allocated" cars because we are in Canada how can they deliver??? They told me spring delivery last July which would have been an 8 month wait. They sure we're up front with me about the wait so I cannot blame the dealer for this mess. After 8 months still no vin!

    That's news too me but not surprising , found out about the first one on FB too . Hopefully things are changing and we will see the cars we ordered. Not very optimistic anymore, it's been a VERY LONG winter and. Nothing but rumours and misinformation for months on end.

    That would be something!!!!!!
    But that is assuming there are no part shortages or delays along the way.... So very hard to be optimistic after 8 months with no info
