    Car - 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat 6.2L Navi Backup Cam Bluetooth Leather in Bolton, ON $77,777

    A buddy of mine is looking at this hellcat for sale and remember everything is canadian. The car was averaging 25 L/ 100km so it equaled out to 9.4 mpg. It has 9257km which equals out to 5700 miles. My friend is worried that it has higher milage and is getting terrible mpg if he maybe drove it really hard and then got rid of it.

    How does factory warranty work in Canada? To me 5700 is not a lot of miles, but consider the car so it was probably driven hard a few times. I've goosed mine a few times it's hard not to in a HC.

    Considering how rare these cars are in Canada, I'd strongly consider buying the car if the factory warranty is transferable.

    I cant remember how it works, but the owner before averaged 9.4mpg so he is worried that it was driven pretty hard

    Canadian warranty is 3 years 60,000kms on drivetrain
    The mileage indicator is just a reflection of the last time it was driven. Mine gets 5.3mpg on a runway LOL but 23.8 mpg on the Hwy...

    Got mine May 16th 2015 drove it until October 10th and stored it for the winter.
    I Managed to put 13,304kms on it at dragstrips, airport runways and cruising around.

    That car still has low mileage IMHO and worth a look

    Crapshoot,but usually cars broken in hard are very fast,
    In my experience,it is a gamble though...

    He found a green one for 81,000 with 1400km so he may go get that one because its only 4 grand more and has 8000km less than the red one

    Might hold its value more because they only made it for 1 year

    seems like a good price and mileage is not bad. remember it has the laguna leather seats. I don't care for the color but they are more expensive than the base seats.
    And they really don't look bad with the red exterior.
