    Placed first order on 9/9/15. Four and a half months later still in VON status. SRT tells me the dealership has 100 on order and dealer won't tell me where my order ranks out of the 100 in date and time of order entry. I give up and cancel.

    See a car on ebay on a Dodge dealer lot for MSRP "buy it now". First I had seen "buy it now" at MSRP. Black with red interior, so not my style. I call the dealer and they have 9 in VON status and will take an order at MSRP. They are actively trying to better their allocation by moving cars, not trying to get 15K over MSRP multiple bidding cycles on ebay. Works for me. 1K deposit, but non-refundable this time.

    I call two largest local dealers and give them a shot at ordering me a car before ordering one 1,000 miles away. Both are standing firm at 15K over MSRP (one said 10K over if you had bought a car from them previously.)

    So 4 and 1/2 months after the order banks opened and I am back at ground zero, but hopefully ahead of where I was. Congrats to the person who moved up one position of the 100 at my original dealership due to my cancellation. Great sales experience Dodge!

    Dealers still posting cars on ebay over and over at 80-89K without being sold. Ebay auctions now getting up to only 72K or so, but not hitting reserve. The ballers willing to pay 15-20 K have already got their cars and the resales with 400 to 2000 miles are starting to show up on ebay. One resale on ebay says after three weeks of ownership and 400 miles the buyer does not like the gas mileage. Duh! Gas mileage was published before you bought the thing, and gas prices are dropping dramatically. Good luck getting MSRP for a used car!

    Everybody who wants a new one of these will have one by the end of the model year. I am predicting these being sold from dealer inventory below MSRP before the 2016's start production.

    No, I am not mentioning dealer names.

    All about the dealer.
    Got mine today...ordered 11/3...they have delivered eight and have ten or twelve "good" orders in awaiting VINs. They sell 500-600 vehicles per month this location so are smiled on by Dodge.

    There is a member here lives pretty close to my location that got his at MSRP and still has dealers calling him. They are out there but you have some phone calls to make and maybe a road trip.
