    So I took the HC in last Friday in hopes for an updated PCM flash and to find the cause of my vibration. No new PCM updates available. It appears the previous owner had all modules flashed a month before I bought it. Sucks bc I hate the auto drive I get at low speeds. 15mph in 1st it'll go for miles and speed up to 18mph some times. Also does it at 55 in 5th.

    I told the writer(who is awesome btw) about the vibrations at highway speeds. On the throttle it's fine, off the throttle it's fine but when you let off and are about 5-8% throttle, you feel a shudder in the driveline. She had the Service Manager ride with me bc I told her I can make it do it whenever I wanted. We went for a rip in the car.

    Of COURSE it wouldn't do it the first trip down the highway. Lol. So turned around and got on it a bit. Bingo.... shudders were a plenty. Hopefully SRT will send a new rear end. Hoping to hear something soon. Fingers crossed.

    Good luck. I'm sure that FCA will stand behind the car.

    Finally got a response on my Star Case. Took it in today so they could put it on a lift and listen to the driveline with a stethoscope. They have determined it's a driveshaft issue and have ordered me a new one. Hope this does cure it.

    Hopefully it shows up next week. Supposed to drop the kids off at camp next weekend in NC. Really want to take the HC up on those beautiful mountain roads.
