I am on the hunt. It seems like the 2008s are as much as the 2009s. Most of the ones around the Chicagoland area with under 10,000 miles are in the 34-36K range for the asking prices. If you have purchased recently, please post the following:

1.) Year, color, options
2.) Mileage
3.) Price advertised
4.) Price paid
5.) Private party or dealer
6.) Financing rates obtained
7.) Location of purchase (city, state)

Thanks!

Put it this way, I just TRADED IN my just under 11k mile '09 6spd SRT8 (with only F1s and stripe delete as options) to a local Dodge dealer for $34,300. That's the price I traded in for. To make any profit, I guess they're going to have to sell the car around $3k more than that.

Wait a second, according to some people on this forum, you get a new '10 SRT8 for around $37k. I'm just saying. :rolleyes:

1-2009 Torred SRT8 with every option and added Mopar CAI and Corsa exhaust.
2-7,800 miles
3-$33,999
4-$31,500
5-small independant dealer
6-2.99%
7-Akron, OH

do your homework and you can find a good deal. But pricing is all over the board. i just saw a 2008 black SRT with 5,000 miles at a dealer and they wanted $42k...advertised as limited production....
good luck!

Read my review in the general forums. I just test drove an SRT-8, R/T and SS. They wanted $35,900 for a 08 SRT-8 with 8,700 miles because it was a limited run car. They had an 09 on the lot with the same miles for $33,900. I will not be buying an 08 based on what I've seen so far...

Found a couple 08-09s on ebay for less than 31K with 6-8k on them.

Why are these cars so cheap when you can trade them in for around $35k? Last week I traded in my no options (except F1s and 6spd) 11k mile '09 SRT8 for $34,300.

[KBB showed $34,650 for my car: 3 "pot-hole" dents kept me from that KBB price.]

No offense but i think it depends on what you are trading it in on and how much "room" they have on that one they are gaining versus the trade.
Because over $34k on your trade is not the norm from what i hear. But good for you!!
And yes some are really playing up the "numbered" 2008's when they come up with the price!

No offense taken. I just thought that "Blue Book" was "Blue Book". If that's what the price says, thats what I want (with a little adjusting of the price for damage or flaws...)

By the way, I got my new 392 for $100 under Invoice (Not MSRP - Invoice). So, there was no wiggle room.

Yeah, I was offered 10,000 for my Mustang on a trade yesterday, but they were barely coming off the sticker on the Mustang (750 off) I looked at. Of course, there was $2,000 in rebates. It is all a numbers game. They will make it look like you are getting a ton for your trade but recover the cost in their selling price of the car you buy. I was offered 8,000 on a trade the day before, which is more in line with what a 15,000 mile 02 Mustang GT is worth on a trade. Therefore, I theorize the other dealer was really giving me about 8,000 for the trade and not coming off the sticker the 2500-3000 they normally would.

Here in AZ you can buy a brand new 2010 SRT8 for $35,300 plus tax.
11k of sticker it always happens in the car bizz when changes occur like they did with 2011's all previous year cars suffer.
So you can pretty much say 08's are around 23-24k 09's 27-28k with lower miles if they are to be sold.

I think your 2008 numbers are a bit low, and hopefully the 2009 numbers are a hair low. sounds like one helluva deal for a brand new 2010 though!!! good luck and have fun!

My goal is to pay no more than 35k out the door for the right car. I am shooting for an 09 since the 08s seem to be just as much. I am not paying extra to have a dash plaque since the car is going to be driven and not stored.

There are some good deals on 2010's around but your numbers are about 5k off. Every challenger I see around me for sale is in the 30k range for 08 or 09. Low 20's... not seeing that for SRT8's.

There surely is "some" wiggle room...
PP price would be another 1% less than what you paid
EP is what; about another 3% under that...
Then you have the holdback... probably $1300 on a 392
Now your in the ball park of what he paid for it...
Not counting any current factory to dealer incentives that no one knows about.

He certainly did not rape you by any means... which means you did good :thumbsup:
But he was probably able to offer you more for your car then he's going to get, to seal the deal.

The dealer down the street from me sold his last two '10 SRT's for under $38k in Dec.
And he just sold a brand new hemi 300s for $10k off on Pres day...
So they always have wiggle room...


For the sake of the "Limited Run" deal... they made about 2000 less Automatic SRT8's in 09

They only made around 2000 more SRT8's total in 09 then 08... they just didn't get a dash plate

TRUST ME after the sellers find out new cars are avail under 35k prices will drop on used cars or they will just continue to sit.

I still have to sell my Mustang, which I have yet to list. If you should still have the car in the next couple of months, we'll talk. That is, if I can convince my wife I need a 6 speed...
