    Petition to Stellantis on Viper Parts Please sign

    Please sign with your name or Avatar to this thread with a post and include how many Stellantis vehicles you own (Jeep, Dodge, Ram, Ferrari, Alpha). I will print the thread out and send to Stellantis:

    We the undersigned are Viper owners. We are also loyal Stellantis customers and many of us own multiple vehicles from Jeep, Dodge, Ram, Chrysler, Ferrari, and Alpha. The Dodge Viper (or SRT Viper) was Dodge’s halo car and sold for a premium compared to other models. Many of us spent close to $150,000 to purchase our dream car. We treasure these cars and wish to enjoy them for years to come.

    However, parts for our beloved Viper are now increasingly hard to find. This problem is not just for older Vipers (Gen 1-4 cars as they are known) but also for Gen 5 cars. The last Gen 5 Viper was built in 2017 and is only 5 years old. None the less, several parts are either discontinued or have become unavailable. Top on the list are window regulators for 2003-2017 Vipers. There are, as of this writing, 85 of each side on backorder.

    Other items that are hard to find are: windshields (most new ones come through damaged), ball joints (discontinued), control arm bushings (discontinued), hoods (discontinued), ACR side sills (discontinued), door glass (currently unavailable), interior components (largely unavailable), other body panels (largely unavailable, other suspension parts (difficult to source), window switches (difficult to source). The list goes on.

    We as owners of Dodge’s premier sports car are disappointed that Stellantis appears unwilling to continue to support the platform. Failure to treat your best customers well can only result in them not wishing to be customers any longer. Anyone that drives a Viper feels like a celebrity when they stop for gas or go for a drive. Crowds appear and want to know everything about the car. Even when we show up with other high end exotics, the Viper is King of the Hill and always garners the greatest attention.

    We respectively request that Viper parts are once again made available so that we may keep our cars on the road. So you can appreciate how good we are as customers we are including with our digital signatures the number of other Stellantis vehicles we own.

    Respectfully the Dodge Viper Owners.

    ViperGeorge - 7 Stellantis vehicles, 3 Vipers, SRT Grand Cherokee, Grand Cherokee Trail Hawk, Jeep Wrangler, Ram 1500.

    Steve-Indy...presently own 12 "Stellantis vehicles" if you count an old Ferrari. Have also owned 9 other Jeeps and 2 Chrysler 300's, one one other Ferrari the past.
    I don't send or receive "PM's" since I prefer DIRECT communication.

    Gen5snake is on board and thank you for starting the petition. One Stellantis vehicle owned, 2015 Dodge Viper. The discontinuation of parts issue actually steered me away from buying a second and third Stellantis vehicle.

    nuviper: currently own a 2015 viper ta 2.0. Always went to dealership and purchase genuine mopar parts for maintenance and repair. From my experience, adequate supply and support of products with high performance-to-cost ratios was the key to attract me and my friends to this brand.

    TQMonster I currently own 3 Stellantis vehicles, 1998 Viper GTS, 2013 Viper GTS and 2018 Trackhawk. Very important to have parts available to keep us enthusiasts on the road as we have purchased these vehicles to drive them not just to admire in our garage!

    Currently own one Gen IV Viper. Improved parts availability is very important. Given the demand, the financial returns for Stellantis for aftermarket Viper parts should be attractive to Stellantis as well.

    PhantomApollyon - Currently own two Stellantis vehicles: 2015 Viper GTS & 2015 Fiat 500 Abarth (historically had 7 Jeeps as well)

    It's incredible to think that so many simple/routine repairs can't be accomplished on a 2013-2017 model year vehicle, and that it's literally almost safer to just park it in the garage. Regardless of my interest in future purchases, with no change in action/behavior these will certainly be my last Stellantis vehicles.
