Challenger SRT Hellcat
emailed a letter talking about dropping the allocation nonsense.
I totally get that, since your car is built so allocation stuff matters not to you, I'm awaiting a VIN so that's the only thing I care about. One day we will both be driving our beasts and smiling the whole time....just take getting an ulcer before we can playI really don't GAS about allocations. I just wish they would build and deliver the damn cars.
I'm really considering just flipping the thing after all this. It has not set well with me. I tend NOT to forget.I totally get that, since your car is built so allocation stuff matters not to you, I'm awaiting a VIN so that's the only thing I care about.

totally agree with everything you said but got to reiterate, "Silence is the most frustrating thing" Just tell us what is going on and what the plan is, how will the cars be build when they start building the Charger and do they still think all sold orders will still get filled? Things like that would go a long way.You may have heard in the past that SRT monitors these forums so they likely understand the frustration. Agreed that it is the lack of communication that is the issue. Keeping it in perspective though, Order banks opened 3mo ago yesterday. It is not uncommon for a brand new custom order model to take 6mo to be delivered. However, the best way to keep everyone happy is to share updates. If Dodge could let the dealers and SRT customer service no exactly why the hoods are delayed, just like the brass monkey wheels or sunroofs, I think we'd all be more understanding. Silence is the most frustrating thing.
Regarding allocations, there isn't really a better way to handle it right now. They are going to build maybe 1500-2000 till the end of the calendar year? That isn't bad but when you have orders placed for 5,000, it sucks for the other 3,500 buyers who want one NOW. That is why there are the market adjustments we see. If build capacity is as high as RS is saying though, supply will quickly catch up and exceed demand. They could be knocking out 800 cars a month as opposed to the 300 a month back in October. By this time next year, you may be able to pick up at a discount if that output continues.
