Well it's new to us....traded the awesome VW Jetta TDI yesterday for a 6 month old 2013 Black Challenger R/T Classic!

It will be her daily driver. It's an auto with Red side stripes, pretty well loaded without Nav or Super Track Pack, but she is fine with that.
Here on Vancouver Island, it's very hard to find Challengers of any kind at the Dodge dealerships. "They just don't sell" I'm told. I say, how can they, if people can;t even see one??? Any way, we tried to order a new 2013 PCP Classic last Feb 2013, but they couldn't(or wouldn't) be fair on a trade. Then in July, we were $500.00 away from a straight out purchase on another PCP Classic from another dealer.....they let us walk out the door over a $500.00... difference( after negotiating...., we were a thousand dollars apart, when I asked them to meet me 1/2 way...I'll come up $500.00 if you come down $500.00.... but they wouldn't budge much off the $2500.00 incentive, and told us too bad.....that car remained on the lot 4 more months!!!
Fast forward to Friday Feb 7 2014. I found this car at a dealership 30 min away...it just came in and only had 12000 km ( 7500) miles). They came in at $3000.00 higher for a trade-in on the Jetta a year after the 1st dealership we saw. They also came down a couple of thousand off the asking price, and a deal was struck.

Couldn't be happier...it's a sweet car.

Nice color combo. I just LOVE black Challengers but man.....I just don't want to deal with the cleaning maintenance. After owning several black cars, I wont do it anymore.

what was the final price in Canada? Thats where mine was made.
We bought it used and made a trade with money owing on the trade. But outright purchase would have been around 34 grand I suppose? Hard to say. It was the best deal I could find in my area for the last year on new or nearly new.
