    My cat came in on Friday and the salesman is saying that Chrysler has a hold on it. He said I would have to talk to the owner of the dealership to find out more. I have been unable to get a hold of the owner yet. Anyone heard of such a thing??

    Perhaps SRT tech hasn't been able to do the required drive in it, for quality control? (That's a lot more tolerable than finding out the sales manager had a race lined up with a buddy with a GT-500, and needs your Hellcat as a 'ringer'!)

    I guess so. worried dealer maybe trying to see if he can get more for it. He agreed to sell for $59k to me.

    I've heard of people cancelling the satin black hood, --but at that price, did you cancel the wheels and tires?!?

    So you bought for less than MSRP? You would be the first I've heard of to do that. Congrats if it is true.

    With those options, even MSRP would be around $63K, so it begs the question, HOW did you persuade the dealer to sacrifice this hot vehicle, when above-sticker is the current norm? Perhaps the sales manager wants to marry your daughter, and this was the only way he could get your approval?!?!

    That's what my fear would be. Was the order in your name, or in the dealer's name? Did you put anything down on it?

    So many dealers are starting to show their truly slimy colors right now...

    If my math is correct, MSRP on your car is right around 64K, so to get a five grand discount on the hottest car in years would be unheard-of, and would be inconsistent with the traditional dealer's role of maximizing profits, so I hate to be gloomy, but I would be very worried, if I were you. Do you have a purchase order, showing the total price, which is signed by a staffer at the dealership, or anything else that might help encourage them to honor the incredible deal you are expecting to get?

    yeah i looked at the sticker tonight and it was $63775 I think. I walked in sometime in Oct. told them i was interested in ordering a Hellcat. he said Ive got one coming in on the first allocation that has what you want but not a 6 speed and no sunroof. So I said I would take it. If I could get it for the same payments as on my 2011 SRT8. so with $10k down and trade it worked out at that price. I do know the owner I'm his Vet. so i thought he gave me a good deal.
