    Let me start, I love my Kitty, it is all I thought it was going to be and more. I have racked up 4500 since I took delivery of my M6 in July, and I use it as my everyday driver.

    Now here are the things that are bugging me.....

    1. The seat belt guide on the upper seat is too big and the buckle many times gets caught behind it, making for a few awkward moments of getting it through the guide. This has been happening more and more frequently.

    2. I have a few annoying interior rattles on the passenger side. They mainly occur when driving on not perfect payment, but once again, it bugs me.

    3. Now that it is cold here in Nebraska, the seat heat is rather weak. Since I drive the car to work and it stays outside in the cold and since it is an M6 with no remote start, I hoped the seat heat would warm up quick. Now the heated steering wheel is fantastic, very toasty very quick. I also wish they would have put real buttons somewhere to control both the seat heat and wheel heat instead in the infotainment system.

    4. The stereo is much much improved since the recent AMP flash, but the volume still goes down as the car comes to a stop even though the speed sensitive volume is in the OFF position. Maybe it is just me, but once I have the volume set, I like it to stay the same. I have heard if you turn on the speed sensitive control and turn it off it helps, but again what a pain, especially when I am fighting to get the seat belt out from behind the guide...

    I know these are minor things, but they do take a bit away from my overall enjoyment of driving my Kitty. What are yours?

    Stereo is bad, clutch is already making a squeeling groaning noise when releasing the pedal in first, and most likely I'll have to fight and plead to get Dodge to take care of it, and it will take week days off and trips to the dealer to get it done. srt pages take so long they almost aren't worth getting to,
    But mostly theres not enough space to stretch its legs around here, especially in the winter.

    Other owners finding things to complain about the most omnipotent muscle car since 1968, or 1966, or 1970... depends on which year Street Hemi you pick. I hate nothing about my Hellcat.

    Only problem we have with our Challenger or Charger Hellcats is we live in Wisconsin and weather is beginning to feel like winter with sand on our hill. Crap!

    Love my HC Charger but I have one little gripe. When coming to a stop from about 45 or higher, it's almost impossible to make a smooth even stop. The A8 downshifts as speed decreases and gives me a little jerk with each downshift.

    Both of ours are A8 and have not felt the shifts like that. Oops, sorry the wife says she notices it a bit in her Challenger.

    A couple of things that bugs me a little. The first one a bit more than the other.

    1. The stereo bass is TOO damn over powering and isn't well balanced. I wish there was a separate control for the sub volume.
    2. The windows are not auto up. I wish they were like my other vehicles.
    3. Roads are not designed to go 200 MPH and stupid people think that they can beat me.

    Maybe I need to ask the dealer when I go for the next oil change.

    The other thing that I am finding a major problem with mine, is that it seems like every time I go .5 miles or .75 miles the ODO shows an additional 1 mile. I don't think its accurate, because the miles are piling up faster than normal...
