    I've posted in other places on this site about a crank shaft pulley failure that I had with my Challenger Hellcat.

    I've also posted about several other issues with that particular car (7 trips to the dealer in two months).

    Also, I've posted about how good Rocky Top Dodge in Sevier County, TN has treated me (for years now) and
    most importantly too me, I've been extremely well treated by Rosa, a representative of Dodge that has been
    very politely and professionally working with me on my request for a replacement car.

    Just a short time ago Rosa called me with some good news. I was offered a replacement car. I'm more than
    a little surprised but this certainly takes some worry off of me and makes Christmas a little happier.

    I was told that someone would be in touch with me in 5to10 business days to work out the details but the offer
    has been made.

    Just wanted to let everyone on this site know that Dodge does stand behind these cars. I know that some of
    the dealers are great, some of them not so great and some of them should be out of business but Dodge as
    a whole, at least in my case, has been very responsive and fair.

    Sounds like a happy ending. How many miles did you have on that car anyhow?

    I'm not sure how the process will work but I assume that the color will be based on my request. Sublime is no longer available so I'll probably ask
    for a Granite Crystal, Black or a Red color.

    Going to leave it up to my Ten year old daughter. She's a car nut and will hopefully end up with the car in a few decades!

    Thanks hellcat1

    Yeah, nice work ! Maybe Dodge will offer you a "dealer locate" car i.e., a stock unit, that's configured to your liking so you won't have to wait for a new build... ;)

    That is great ! And when you get your new one pin that crank.

    That car was the one my dad had ordered down there but the deal changed after it was ordered so he got one somewhere else .

    Congrats & the Granite Crystal Metallic is a great choice by the way!!! You'll be kicking yourself for going with a Black car cause you'd be spending more time detailing it than driving it!!! Trust me cause I've owned Black cars before!!! The GC HC won't show all the dust & dirt and isn't as nearly as bad to keep clean either but good luck on your choice and hopefully you don't have to wait that long for a replacement!!!

    Whaaaaattt? They're taking back you Hellcat and replacing it with a new Yugo? Damn, I didn't know they were making them in PCP or Granite Crystal this year. :cool: Glad it all worked out for you! Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Ramadan!

    Now how would it work with Greencat owning a red Hellcat? He'd have to change his name. Oh, wait...he'll have to change his name anyway. He could be like Prince, "formerly known as".
