Dealer: "what's the difference between an R/T & SRT?"
So I had a day off today & when running errands I decided to swing by my local stealership to get my fix of the Challenger while i wait until mine arrives from Bob.
Obviously a dealer comes right over & introduces himself. I immediately tell him I have a B5 R/T Classic on order and that i'm just there to look at the beautiful Challengers on his lot.
We talk about them for a bit, I ask about how many R/T's they've had through recently compared to SRT's and his response is this "What's the difference between an SE, R/T & SRT8 then?". He knew nothing of the Classic either.
I had to explain to him the engine difference, cosmetic differences & about the Classic too.
NOW it does turn out that he has only been there for two months. But seriously, this is their Dodge's best selling car, surely dealers should be reading up and learning on their product? I was the only customer there, and when i left the dealer was just sitting on a bench in the sun. SURELY he could spend this time learning his product to make a sale?
No wonder this dealer has been struggling to sell over 20 cars a month.
Sold: 2011 Challenger R/T w/ Mopar Appearance Package. Brilliant Black, 6M.
Arrived 4/26!!: 2015 SRT Hellcat. Phantom Black PC, 6M, Sepia Laguna Leather.
