    So you all know I got the car. I dropped it off at the shop for some personalization and picked it up yesterday. I drove it the 34 miles home and once once gave the car a good over. Below are my findings.

    Defective tail light housing - Resolved
    Drivers seat rotary button does not work. Opps, that's the lumbar button and it does work.
    Entertainment Center/Nav unit takes 45 seconds to start up. U-Connect update and much improved.
    Sometime I have to push the start button twice. - Can not duplicate.
    SRT pages only load sometime. - System boot and normal now.
    No trunk mat - Not issued
    Engine has a miss at idle - Determined to be normal operation.
    Numerous paint flaws.
    Doors do not close properly

    trunk mat??? like floor mats but in the trunk? never heard of this....but I've never bought a new car.

    Paladin, can you go into more detail about these things so others can know what to look for when at the dealer? What is it about the door not closing right and what is bad about the taillight (ie does it not come on or it is loose to the touch...things like that)

    I think the Nav will get better after you do the update

    Never a good thing. It seems the dealer inspection should have found that.I guess its got to be a sunny day if/when I pick mine up. No rain or dark for me I gots to see!

    Jeez. That's flippin crazy. Most likely the NAV thing might be fixed with the update. The rest, well. I don't recall getting a trunk mat, unless you are referring to the thing that covers the speaker and battery?

    You have to slam the doors to close them.

    Yours took some damage at the plant if I remember right? Sounds like the SRT tech needs to get his eyes checked if he did the acceptance check at the dealer...,

    My 2008 SRT8 came with a trunk mat and it $30K. Are you telling me your Hellcat does not a removable trunk mat?

    They did an update as part of the PDI. Perhaps the load was corrupt. Hell it was 498 meg in size.

    My 2008 SRT8 Challenger which cost $30K less came with a removable trunk mat. I have NEVER owned a car that did not come with a trunk mat.
    As for the tail light, the lens has a plastic drip on it. That's we call it at Boeing. I though it was a water spot until I touched it. There is hard plastic tit sticking out.
    As for the doors you have to slam them for them to close.
