Thats great that Ralph has plenty of time for slicing options, how about getting his boys to figure out the front fascia issue or the no AC with remote start.

Hold tight on buying Scott, because if we dont get a TSB this year for the front Fascia issue, I will have a '12 priced really right. Right now it has less than 4k miles

Nope. Its all snap together. It also stays popped out a bit under the inside lower corner of the headlight. Its not as noticable there, which I could live with, but the corners are bad as you can see. You can push it in, drive to work and its out again. This is the exact problem so many are having all over the forums.

As we speak, they are unpriced and not in the system to order (with or without a vehicle).

Re: Black Vapor chrome wheels now an option on 2013's!

IMO, all of you front fascia folks should start the process of documenting/taking pictures for a lemon law claim. Keep a solid log of occurrence along with taking pics every time, then keep taking it to the dealer after every failed fix attempt.


Also, I take it these are the "optional" 20" wheels Milous said they are going to have for this model year (yet no one gave him any specifics on). If so, IMO, very lame.

Good luck getting a lemon law claim on a piece of bumper fascia.........

I agree it sucks, mine is out too, but it doesn't rise to the level of replacing the vehicle. I wold hope they have it figured out and have a fix, even it if includes replacing the bumper fascia though a clip installed from the back side seems like it might be the easiest and more permanent fix.

Re: Black Vapor chrome wheels now an option on 2013's!

The Fascia just doesnt fit the front right. People have had the entire fascia replaced for it only to do it again. I have it documented with the SRT hotline, for what that is worth. The plastic clamp or whatever you want to call it, doesnt have long enough tabs to keep the side locked. Two of the tabs grip the two rear holes in the fascia from the top and the front one grips from the bottom. To make matters worse the clamp cant be reached from the backside as it is bolted flat against metal. Not even any jerry rigging unless you break out the trim nail gun


BTW, if they have already tested, approved and produced new brackets for the rear shocks to fix the clunk, why cant they design a new plastic clamp to fix the black eye 70% of their product is displaying to the world. You cant tell me they werent seeing this late last year with so many backed up in QC.
