    The dealer we are purchasing from wanted a non refundable deposit. $5000.00.

    Since we purchased several other vehicles including my 96' Viper RT-10 and our 12' SRT-8 Challenger
    we felt ok with it. But I have to admit it eats a hole in my head at times.

    Pretty sure we will get one but still ( I think they will refund us if they can't supply a car, just did not want us to bail on a custom order / allocated car).

    Yes, $1,000.00, back in June, which seemed to guarantee the number one spot.

    My rep and the paper we signed says if they cannot get me a hellcat then I am entitled to a full refund.

    HELLS NO! Why should I make a promise when they can't. If you were guaranteed a first allotment then I could see it. I guess maybe things are just a little easier going here or something. All these stories make me appreciate my dealer more and more.;)

    OK just checked my paperwork. I get a refunded my deposit if they can't supply a car but they have a Feb deadline. If I cancel for any reason they keep my deposit.

    You want to put a deposit down, no matter what. Thats how i got my SRT 8 Jeep, an order with no down, walked in and stole it from the person that ordered it. You wouldn't want that to happen to your Cat!

    We put 6k down for first run. It has to be worth it!

    I put 2000 down,, dealer said mine is the first hellcat coming.. I never asked about a refund,, as I'm sure there are a ton of people waiting if I don't take it.
