How can someone order B5 if it's not on the screen yet? (As of 2 weeks ago anyways)
dealers in the USA cannot place an order in for a kitty, cannot....and im pretty damn sure its the same in Canada....they can see the option list, the pricing etc, but cannot be keyed in......
VOTS has never been available for Canadians, it is unreliable anyways so no big loss. What I did is email the sales manager directly whenever I felt like having an update. He answered within a few hours with a tracking update. Their system is reliable to the minute while VOTS could be days before it updates.Just called Chrysler and they informed me that Canadians can't use the online tracking system? I'm getting a little peeved at my first Dodge experience.
How many people with 95k cash wants to buy a challenger...Well went to Jim Pattison Dodge in Surrey BC that has a black hellcat coming In and the manager wants 95,000 for the auto.
I told him he was out to lunch.
This is one Dodge dealership I will never deal with.
Saskatchewan and Manitoba are the 2 provinces that gets the most screwed on this. They are considered western canada and have to fight against BC and Alberta to get cars. The fact that Alberta beats Quebec by about triple also makes me wonder. It seems like they send it where more money can be taken from people (Alberta high markups - oil driven) and the quickest (Ontario only a few days delivery)How' 'bout Parksville BC??? And what about Southey Sask??( less than 1000 pop.!!!) Merv Ritter gets every special Mopar he wants...how??? Regina couldn't get one, don't know about Saskatoon.... My buddy in Moose Jaw orders all of his new stuff through Merv, that no other dealership either wants to or can order. I don't know how it works, but some people are fortunate enough to be at the right place at the right time.(Me??) My Hellcat was on the dealership floor for 2 weeks, so how did I end up with it? I mentioned I saw the Parksville Hellcat on the Hellcat forum, not a single soul commented, which leads me to think no one knew about it either. My personal opinion is that FCA is creating a demand that is impossible to keep up with at the moment. I also believe whoever puts up his money for one will get one....eventually. I do know one thing about some of the larger FCA dealerships on the lower mainland and on the Island....on a Saturday afternoon, I haven't seen more people buying cars than in Duncan BC. So maybe it goes by sales per population or something, But in Vancouver I could not get a deal like I did on the Island on my 3 Challengers in the last 11 months....some of the big dealerships are just too arrogant and don't care if they lose a sale. I don't even know if I have a point, but just speaking from my own experiences .
Just the title says the dealer is a clown by calling it an SRT8 hellcat. It's like the people owning 60s-70s plymouth muscle cars and they claim the colours are PCP or hemi orange... Drives me crazyThen there are guys like Benson in Edmonton who wants you to pay $109,000 for a Charger Hellcat.

When all the dealers around you tell you the same thing and you see a gazillion promasters on the lot all of a sudden, you start to put 2 and 2 together. It could also be a regional requirement, we never know.I guess even though my dealer has come through with my car and is sitting in the showroom until the snow melts, the rest of the stuff he tells me in your opinion is lies. He was not required to take any extra vetch of any type to get his hellcat orders accepted. Those are just the facts, believe what you want from what ever source you want.Orders for what? Chargers or Challengers?
I'll assume with your comment on the "sprinters" (actually Promaster vans), you were referring to Chargers.
Your dealer has agreed to "buy" multiples of a particular vehicle in lieu of these orders. There is no other way to get these orders filled. It may not be the Promasters, but it could be Fiats, a bunch of Darts, or some have mentioned two-wheel drive trucks (4x4's are infinitely more desirable around here).
Around Calgary, the average asking price (if not a lottery or auction, re: Eastside Dodge) is $90,000 for the Challenger (similar numbers are being reported on the Chargers around here) and I was reminded of that when my dealer told me MSRP and not a penny less on mine. The Charger I had ordered (potentially built this week) has been pulled to be offered to another customer in lieu of never getting his Challenger order filled this year.
He has Charger Hellcats coming and 2 Challenger Hellcats on the ground sold with another order coming. Again no pro masters or darts or 200s tied to those orders.
And with the fact he sold his Hellcats pre order with 1 paid for and two others with large deposits, he will actually get more allocation.
You guys can all enjoy the time making assumptions while I sit in my Hellcat smiling.
