2012 RT 5.7 Hemi 390 HP - Piece of Crap...

Just got back from the dealership. Complained that the trans was slipping. Dealer said NO, it is perfect.???

390 HP and I can't even "chirp" the wheels from a standing start???

I can rev the engine while driving and the RPMS go up but the truck doesn't do anything.???

With the pedal down it shifts through gears like its slogging through Jello.

Is this for real??? Is the dealer right?? What canI do and not mess up my warranty????????

$30,000 for 390 hp???????????

Could be a problem but mine isn't just frying tires either. It will spin but I have to make it. Remember, 390 horse or not, 32 inch tall 285 tires aren't going to let go of asphalt very easy.

No, unless your SS/T was fairly extensively modded or either your R/T is broken, it wouldn't stand a chance. Those trucks are lucky to run 15s stock. Also, put those tiny 17s on your R/T and roast away. Or vice versa, put your 22s on a 5.9 and they will kill it. And I've had two of them so I know what I'm talking about.
