Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Bo and Luke are talking to Boss Hogg on the CB radio, Bo still has the mike keyed up when Boss Hogg starts talking.
When Daisy Duke is talking with Billy Prickett about the different sponsor logos on his car, the audio was clearly re-dubbed and doesn't match what she is really saying.

After Bo and Luke steal the safe out of Boss's trailer, Security shows up and gets in a car to chase them. As the guard drops the transmission from park to drive, you hear the sound of a manual transmission grinding. This car is automatic and should not make that sound.

Character error 

In the safe-cracking scene it appears that they attempt to light plastic explosives with a cannon fuse. Plastic explosives require an electrical charge to detonate. There is talk of wires being backwards, but if there was an electrical detonator, then what was the cannon fuse for?

Continuity 

Near the end of the race, the General Lee's left is being pushed up against the dirt wall and the other side is already badly dented, but as the shot changes and the car turns, the left side is in perfect condition.
In the courtroom scene, Rosco's baton is seen almost falling from the door handle. When the camera returns to this viewpoint, the baton has been set back in the handle.
When they park the General Lee at the Geology Building and get out of the car, the girls in the back seat disappear. They then are shown climbing out just before the boys cover the car up with the car cover.
In the shot where the boys are stuck in traffic in Atlanta, a woman pulls up beside the General clearly driving a black pickup truck, and then in the next shot she is driving a dark green/blue/Grey SUV. in the next shot where the camera is above the traffic, the vehicle reverts back to a pickup truck.
In the beginning of the movie when Luke and Bo are chased by Mr. Pullmann and his son, his son fires with a 2-shot-shotgun. Near the end of the chase the son gets the gun stuck in the steering-wheel and accidentally fires first through the car-floor and then through the car-door, making it two shots. He is then instantly, without reloading, firing a third shot at the Dukes.
During the Road Rally Race at the end, The General Lee's rims change from the aluminum alloy rims to black steel rims and back several times.
Luke Duke slides out of the car window to shoot his bow and arrow and doesn't have a bow with him. Then he has a bow and shoots at the cops. When he slides back into the car, he no longer has his bow.

When the cousins are confronted in Atlanta by a group of men for having the rebel flag on their car, Luke's window is up about four inches. As the gang approaches the car, he begins to roll the window up from a completely down position, and he gets it to that approximate four inches before the aggressor puts his hands on it. When told to get out of the car, he slides out and sits up on the door sill without ever having rolled the window back down.

Near the end of the film, just before the General Lee "shoots the moon" to clear the roadblock, Cooter sets up his flatbed and lowers the ramp so the General can use it to launch. During all of the establishing shots, there is a large metal barrier affixed to the end of the flatbed's ramp that the General Lee would have to crash through, however, as the General approaches, the barrier suddenly disappears.

Errors in geography 

During the chase through "Atlanta" the Dukes turn down a side street and in the distance you see the smokestack of a Carnival Cruise Ship. Atlanta is landlocked.
Palm trees are shown in Atlanta in this movie. In reality, Atlanta is too cold for palm trees - the average January daily temperature is only forty degrees Fahrenheit.
The so-called chase scene in "Atlanta" actually occurs in both Baton Rouge and New Orleans, LA with the location alternating throughout the chase.
During the car chase in "Atlanta", the boys go around a circle with a statue of Robert E. Lee in the middle. That's clearly Lee Circle on St. Charles Ave. in New Orleans, not Atlanta.

When Prickett first sees his car with Boss Hogg's picture, the logo for Les Schwab tires is on the wall. Les Schwab tires is a west coast tire chain which does not operate anywhere near Georgia where the movie is set.

Factual errors 

Moonshine burns with a clear blue flame not the red/orange explosions as Uncle Jesse throws the jars during the chase scene. A red flame from moonshine indicates the presence of lead, hardly the quality expected of Duke Moonshine.

Revealing mistakes 

The movie is supposed to take place in spring/summer. The scene shot at the university parade ground shows a very large Christmas wreath hanging from the building across the grounds.
Flash the Basset Hound appears to have different color markings or is simply a different dog in several shots in the movie.
Bo's beard in the opening sequence looks fake.
While sitting in traffic in the outskirts of Atlanta, it's obvious that the car is sitting higher up on a trailer, as opposed to resting on the pavement. The windows of the General Lee are at the same level as a Ford Expedition, a much taller vehicle.

When the Dukes are stuck in traffic on their way to Atlanta, people comment about the flag on top of the General. If you look closely, the General is just as tall as mini vans, SUVs and trucks making it obviously that the car was actually on a trailer or something of that sort.

During the scene where Bo is dragging Luke and the safe and they hit the security guards car notice the relatively small amount of damage on the front fender of the Taurus. When the camera flashes back to the guard and Taurus it's totaled. Radiator steam is coming out of the hood and it never hit the front of the car.

Spoilers 

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Continuity 

Perhaps because the final scene in the courtroom is a re-shoot there are a few continuity problems. For instance Boss Hogg's goatee is gone all of a sudden and the news reporter's microphone has a different logo on it then it did in the scene before.

Continuity

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

After Bo wins the race and leads the crowds to the courthouse, through the window of the General Lee we see the same parking lot go by several times. In one of the shots of the lot going by you can see 3 General Lees parked next to each other. This was done intentionally as an ode to the shot in The Dukes of Hazzard: One Armed Bandits where the General Lee races past another parked General Lee in the final chase scene.
