Hello I have a question does anyone know if the 2018 Scat Pack Charger comes from the factory with a top speed already logged in the performance page on the instrument panel? I bought a 2018 Charger with 250 miles on it and saw that it had been up to 167mph at one time. Not sure if someone took it to the track during a test drive or is this a number that is set at the factory. if the vehicle was run this fast before the break in period anyone know how I can determine the date like maybe with a scan tool. trying to determine if this vehicle was abused before I bought it. Thanks in advance for any information anyone can provide.

While this is just a guess, I doubt that there would be a speed programmed into the vehicle at the factory. My guess is that someone drove it at that speed, or someone at the dealership entered the value using their starscan tool (assuming this is possible).

Welcome from AZ. I have read of Challenger owners reporting similar readings. I do not know what the outcome was.

I think I may have bought a car that was abused early in life...…...I scan it with a scan tool and see if the date can be determined.

Welcome to the Z from NC! Glad you joined, enjoy the site!

They do pull cars every now & again and do random dyno's so that could be it.
