    Hi everyone, I thought I would post a quick recap of my ALMOST Kitty purchase. I put a deposit down on a Challenger Hellcat @ the end of January, the dealer and I agree on MSRP. Order got placed and moved pretty quickly. Last Friday I got a call from the dealer saying it was in, so I went down to sign the deal and pick it up. First off MSRP price didn't match what my Kitty cost ($300) higher and another $1500 for the what I call the dealer BS which was never put on the car (window tint, window etch, and paint protection package). I told the dealer I wasn't paying for it and that's not what we agreed on. They said I still had to pay for it. They said there is nothing they could do. Long story short I walked away and will be starting from "scratch" again. It sucks and I really want the car, but it comes down to principal. I don't write this for anyone to feel sorry for me, more in the case to beware and make sure you get the right deal for anyone looking to buy a Kitty. If anyone has any insight how I could report this with Chrysler, it would be much appreciated.

    Did you have a signed purchase agreement when you ordered it? If so, they entered into a contract and would be legally bound.

    Anytime I ordered a car with deposit I got a statement from the dealer disclosing all fees and final costs. If the dealer violates that, they're in trouble, especially if they collected a deposit and assigned you the allocation.

    When I ordered my Hellcat, the allocation was placed under my son's name and the build sheet with VON and final price was there too.
    My car is just days away and I got wheel insurance and the dealer is giving me a free Permaplate application.

    Find a better dealer and disclose what happened. Window tint is BS and paint protection is an option that includes a warranty (such as permaplate) and costs 399.00 at most dealers.

    Sounds like they tried to gouge you and will now gouge someone else. Did you get your deposit back?

    Thanks for the responses and the insight everyone so far. It was a refundable deposit (had to go back today and get it). As for the purchase order it was wrong from the beginning the dealer "had" allocation on a Hellcat that had been sitting in the computer for almost 2 months and hadn't moved.

    I'd do the same thing. You have the right mindset. Happy hunting.

    Also try to do some "cold calling" by barging into dealerships within your vicinity. Cover a 20 mile radius or more of all nearby dealerships to begin with and then gradually expand your search.

    You never know what these guys might have stashed up at the back....hahaha.

    Dealer is Superstition Springs CJDR in Mesa, AZ. Thanks MuscleGarageLA, I originally did that when I started my search in January, back to the drawing board. Thanks pinetreecat, 209srt8s and bighit2883 for the leads on some Kitty's out there.

    Thanks JollyRoger, appreciate the kind thoughts. Looking for a Bright White A8 Challenger, black leather, moonroof and black wheels. I'll take a look online.

    I was offered two Hellcat's from two different dealers here in sc at 2k under msrp. I gat the red one as you can see. One is still on the lot. Ivory white, a8 , sepia interior and sunroof. If interested I'll tell you where and how you can get it but privately. I don't want dealer to know what I now.
