Unless you're paying 100% cash (don't suppose most of us folks on the forum do) consider that finance rates are higher from the bank for a used car (even with only 1500 miles on it) than for a new vehicle.Would like some opinions - I'm thinking of getting my first Challenger, a 2008 SRT, 1500-miles, as new condition. Got him down to $36k with a 4-yr additional warranty. Is this still too much? Appreciate the advice.
I just went online and did a search. There are several new 2010 SRT8 available at Antioch Chrysler Dodge/Jeep which is in northern Illinois. They are going for $9,000 under sticker for around $37,500. Hope this helps. These are online listed prices.Thanks all for your advice. I am really getting tired of looking and negotiating! The absolute best deal, and I do mean absolute, I can get from any dealer anywhere near my area (northern WI), for a fully loaded 2010 SRT8 is $42,200. Oh, and I got into quite an argument with the dealer that I bought a new RAM Laramie from last year - he could possible get me into a new SRT for around $40k, but definitely not a SRT8. This is after I repeatedly told him i wanted a fully loaded SRT8! What the heck is the difference?
I'm sure you can feel my frustration coming through. I keep going back to this 2008 SRT8, fully loaded, 1700-miles, with a 4-yr bumper-to-bumper warranty for $36,000, with a 3-yr loan under 4%.
I really wanted a Challenger, I have the money, I just can't get anyone to "deal". :scratchhead: I've actually been looking at the Corvettes! Maybe I'll just close my eyes while I'm in my RAM (at least IT has a HEMI!) and pretend I'm driving the Challenger that I've always wanted - I'd better keep at least one eye open though. Thanks again to all.
I bought my car from them at around 8K off sticker (R/T Classic). They are pretty good. You won't be able to get them any lower though. I tried hard. They only have 2-3 yellow SRTs left though.I just went online and did a search. There are several new 2010 SRT8 available at Antioch Chrysler Dodge/Jeep which is in northern Illinois.

That one is Iowa is a great deal for someone looking for a 6 speed. I should have bought it now that I think about it since it would have been about 6 grand more than mine... Anyway, I paid $29,962 for my 2010 R/T Classic last month. It would have cost me about $7,500 more to buy the SRT-8 from the same place, which was the difference anyway on the stickers initially. The difference between the models is still the same, the price is just 8-9k lower across the board now. I wouldn't buy a 2008-2010 SRT-8 now that the new 392 is out though. I would wait for it to be discounted at the end of the year (40k or less) OR when they come out with some decent colors again. That is my plan eventually. For now, enjoying my R/T!http://www.challengertalk.com/forums/f16/f-s-2010-dodge-challenger-srt8-189-miles-mint-west-des-moines-iowa-55676/
It might be worth driving a little bit to get a great deal. THis looks like a super deal here.
There are dealers here in Indiana that are giving 12k and more off the stickers of 2010 SRT's. I wish I would have waited now, could have got an SRT for what I paid for the R/T
i was getting offers of $42k off 8 months ago (last Fall)Thanks again for all the advice - I'm still looking, but the best I can find is at $42k for a fully loaded, new 2010 SRT8, orange, with an automatic (it has to be an auto due to a leg injury). 42k still seems like quite a bit for a 1-yr-old model, but I'm quite specific in what I want. Thanks again to all!
