Re: My 2012 Jeep SRT8 - So far its kinda been a nightmare

I call bullshit on the reasoning for the amount of miles they put on it but hey, what can you do about it.

When I purchase an SRT, hopefully soon, I'm going to lie and tell the service department that have the PCM being monitored. The throttle, RPM's, etc, etc. It would make me feel better about leaving it with them if I ever have to.

ummmmm joe. my pioneer f90BT will record everything from when i say START to when i say STOP. top speed, distance travelled, etc.


my mopar EVTS which is plugged INLINE to my OBDII port so you cannot tell from the outside, will do the same. it will also save me the route traveled, avg speed, top speed, etc. and notify me via email if any parameters i preset are busted.


i like what wink did when he had his body work done...had toooona create a limp home tune with 45mph top speed.

Re: My 2012 Jeep SRT8 - So far its kinda been a nightmare

I need to bring it back to the dealership for the dashboard, fender flare and wheel refinish....can I install the EVTS myself or does the dealership need to do it. I would like to do it without the dealership knowing.

Sorry to hear as well! That is the problem with first model year cars. You always have to wait a year or two for the manufacturer to fix the problems then buy.

Re: My 2012 Jeep SRT8 - So far its kinda been a nightmare

I've ordered mine in may still haven't received . Emailed Ralph Gilles and he wrote back that he checked on my vehicle and was in quality and reassured me my vehicle was fine and not effected . He was a complete gentleman and was shocked he took the time to look into my matter . Im waiting to see when it arrives if it's all what he promised is fine.
His email is ralph.gilles@chrysler.com and I'm sure he would be interested in your complaint Gregg

Thanks for the email address. The guy that runs DriveSRT Facebook page says he is going to run my complaint/experience up the ladder. Not sure if it will get as high as Ralph but if I don't get a response I will send him an e-mail and see what happens.

Update: Jeep is running great - the fender flare has been painted and I am just awaiting the new dash and will put it in the shop when it gets in.
