    Last night after dinner I answered the phone to : "Hello, this is -------- from SRT. Do you have a few minutes to answer some questions and a short survey?" Sure, go ahead. "I'm calling about the SRT8 that you just purchased." Do you mean the Hellcat? "NO, the SRT8." I think you mean the Challenger Hellcat, correct? "NO, the SRT8!" I said, are we talking about the same car here? I just bought a Hellcat, what are you talking about? He said, "There must be some mistake here, I'll have to get back to you." I said, before you do, please be sure that you are calling about the right car. I just spent $67,000. with you guys and it was not a particularily a good experience. Could you even get get the car right? Good-Bye. WTF?

    I'm a little confused here. The OP just purchased a $67,000 Challenger Hellcat. Does it seem odd that he has a Camaro avatar?

    I had this exact same conversation with SRT. They said SRT-8 and I finally let it go. They were just doing a survey.

    We got the call before ours was delivered. Chuck told them yes we bought one but that we did not have it as yet. Lol He called the dealer where we purchased ours and told them about the call survey and low and behold it got delivered in 3 days. We had been told a week till delivery.
    But they referred to ours as SRT8

    I'd be willing to bet the call was not from "Dodge" or "FCA" but was actually from a market research firm calling on behalf of Dodge. They are reading from an old script and have no idea what product they are really talking about.

    It's okay GTS, I sold the Camaro a week ago. My Hellcat got to the dealer last Friday, Monday was PDI day, yesterday wife had a Dr's appointment, today it rained again, tomorrow is delivery day. After waiting 296 days for the car, another day or two won't hurt. I'll be changing my avatar as soon as my personalized plate shows up.

    What puzzeled me about the phone call was when I asked him specifically, do you mean the Hellcat? He said, no! He said he would call back so I didn't have to just hang up.
