    While taking my 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee to Allen Samuels Dodge in Houston for routine maintenance (until my Charger Hellcat is built), I noticed both a Charger Hellcat and Challenger Hellcat in the showroom. Since I originally went to this dealership in an attemt to order my Hellcat and being told that the dealer markup is $6000, I was curious as to what the going rate is. Keeping in mind that I refused to pay the $6000 markup and ordered from a different dealership, I was shocked to see that the markup is now $30,000 for the Charger and $33,140 for the Challenger!!! Absolutely ridiculous!! I guess the fact that the Mecum Auction was held across the street from the dealership has something to do with this. image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

    NOT to be confused with Allen Samuels Katy, TX, this one posted by the OP is at 610 Loop in Houston, TX. I clarified with my sales rep at Katy location.

    I like how even with the $30,000 markup they still have the balls to add "solar cooling" and "security package" bullshit as well. I'm sure there's a $1000 doc fee they'll add as well. Disgusting!

    I can't wait for Tesla to burn these kind of dealers to the ground!

    Do you have jeans with rivets. I'd go very close and get a good look at the window sticker. Hard to read the ADM with numbers so small LOL!

    I feel bad for the folks waiting in line with a VON thinking they have a chance of getting 'picked-up'

    WOW. I guess they must think some desperate person with a ton of money will buy it and not care about the markup. I guess the potential to get that kind of markup is worth putting your reputation in the dumpster. I will never go there for any reason... Even parts. They probably add huge markup to that, too.
