    I think that immediately is the key word here. The system has so much to load that you just have to give it enough time to fully boot up. Faster processor or more RAM might be the answer. In the mean time, I guess we just have to "chill" a few more seconds.

    I have no complaints about my Hellcat!

    all love here..

    you know, it's still a car and with that comes the standard items that ALL cars come with that could be, might be, should be better, but that would apply to every single car built.

    LUV IT

    HATE - Lack of seat memory
    HATE - slow/glitchy radio
    HATE - potential clutch failure looming
    HATE - driveshaft weakness

    LOVE - I own THIS car, it was many months of going out into the garage and seeing it and not believing I actually had one.

    Me and the wife were out to dinner the other night (sitting outside 10ft away from it in full view, an important point) and it drew a constant crowd, people where dumbfounded it was a manual...

    Except for the Millenial crowd, they either didn't know or didn't care...

    I LOVE:

    The evolution of the Hellcat, compared to my 2010 SRT8. Power, Handling, Braking, Technology, and Styling... Incredible improvements.

    I HATE:

    The stuff that is missing, such as: a front view parking camera; a rear seat that folds flat rather than blocking what little rear view there is already (or a rear seat delete with a shoulder harness bar); larger tires inside larger fenders to harness the power and further improve handling/braking/styling; an option for brushed aluminum wheels; and a Valet Mode that really locks down the car (example: someone with the Black Key in their hand and the car in Valet Mode can view and reset important little things like the Top Speed history);

    Whatever change made the satellite radio reception in this 2016 Hellcat much worse than the 2010 SRT8. Perhaps it is the shark fin antenna, could be the amount of buffering, but it constantly cuts out where we never had problems before... really, really annoying... satellite radio is a wonderful thing... when it works.

    The fact that Dodge did not contact existing SRT owners and offer us an exclusive, straight-forward means of ordering a Hellcat. Having to settle for one sitting on a lot, if you can find one, (or wait months if a dealer will take an order) is just unsatisfactory customer service. If they had setup a means of permitting existing SRT owners to order our cars, it would have really added to Brand Loyalty.

    There are some niggles here and there like the Sci-Fi sounds coming from unknown locations...lol and other fit/finish issues. Quite frankly most cars have minor irritants. However at this price point you are almost bordering on super car territory. That alone trumps all other shortcomings.

    Love:
    My car is 1 year and 5 months old and still looks awsome.
    The design of the exterior and interior.

    Hate:
    Codes!!!
    I know it's the car just being over protective.

    Just got 4 different codes and have to wait a week before the dealership can look at my car.
    Good thing my car is not my daily driver.

    Love:
    The overall look, performance and attitude of the HC

    Hate:
    The price (but whatever), the lack of adjustable ride height (should have come standard), no rear seat delete option (would have given the passenger a little more adjustment on their seat; driver too, I suppose), lack of staggered wheels and wider tires at the rear options, two piece drive shaft (really? it's a toothpick...guess it's a leap of faith with the engineers...so be it), button placement forward of the stick that replicate touchscreen functions (I get the duplication, but the placement suffers in my mind), lack of ability to customize the multiple gauge display, what kruzin' said...
