    So myself and a couple other forum members have confirmed from our dealers that the 2 month layoff (Feb and March) of any new allocations was to clean things up with the allocation process. They are apparently making all dealers fax in and prove that the orders are legit and not just for stock so they can jack up the prices and get more allocations. Also it sounds like they are flying around the country and visiting certain dealers that have been doing these things and imposing some sort of penalty. Just curious if anyone has heard what that penalty is aside from no more HC allocations and if they are working with a dealer who has done these things.

    To the shady dealers: "No HELLCAT for you!!!!!"

    And then give all the ones waiting on Hellcat.org their orders. I think that sounds fair.

    It actually sounds like that is what they are doing. My dealer said that the ones who have been following the rules are getting double the allocations in April. My dealer said that they are getting 4 next month instead of 2 and that I'm still the only Charger that is ordered. I still can't believe that!

    They might cut some allocation but the shady's will still mark them up and more now knowing no one can order any.

    True but after they get things sorted out they will be left with no more. They are going to open up for orders again just not right now. It's not like they are not going to make anymore ever again.

    I don't believe your dealers information one bit. It's common knowledge allocations were given out in Feb and March, people here got some.

    Flying around the country going to dealers? Really? There are more marked up cars now, than ever.

    Well like I said it's either a talking point or it's true because more than one dealer is saying the same thing. It's not like getting all pissed off over this makes things change any. It is what it is.

    My dealer actually received one VIN after nothing from the day orders opened. So I hope there is some truth to the allocations being revised based on dealer behavior. Next month will probably be more telling whether it is a policy change or a fluke.
