    Such thing as a "Viper Tech"

    Looking for a service department in North Dakota that at least has a service tech familiar with working on a Viper. No luck. Is it a fair question to ask of the dealerships if they have such a guy or is that not something typical? I would imagine the number of Viper's sold here is next to nothing so I don't blame them or maybe Chrysler doesn't have such a thing? Coming from 30 years of Corvette ownership and not that a Vet tech was something prevalent but there was normally someone up to speed on the latest Gen and whatever that entailed for servicing.

    The SRT Dealer located used to have Viper logo's next to dealers that had Viper Techs. My dealer doesn't have one per-say but they have one guy who works on vipers that come in. Anything besides brakes and oil changes it goes up to CJ. (Knock on wood I haven't had any issues since picking my Gen V up)

    I'm just north of ND in Manitoba, and yes, the "Viper Tech" thing is a bit questionable at some dealers up here too. The way I understand it, being a Viper Tech is a matter of taking some computer courses and paying a fee of some sort, from what I have been told. Some dealers don't go for it, but may still have a guy who knows Vipers well enough to do the basic stuff. I've used a couple of different dealers in Winnipeg over the years for oil changes and some recall/warranty stuff, with no problems. Personally, I don't care if they are "certified" to work on Vipers, as long as I trust them.

    First it was a '95 RT/10, then came the '01 GTS. Now it's a '14 GTS. They say the third time's the charm, I have to agree.
