    i went to Safford Dodge today as I am considering another hellcat..I walked in and talked to a guy at the front. I asked him about the hellcat and told him I would buy at MSRP today and he said not today you are not..that was enough for me so I left. Obviously didn't care for the business..just a heads up for folks looking for one.

    I have found 3 out of state for MSRP so they are out there, I was hoping to buy local but may end up out of state...

    I bought three SRTs, three Ram trucks, and two Durangos in about five years from them....they would not deal on the Hellcat. 10k ADM at first, but understand they've gone to about 5k or a little less if you work the deal. Needless to say I will never buy from them again. I bought two Hellcats 1k and 250 below MSRP...took exactly one day to find each one. Just bought another Durango for the wife and we went to same dealership in NC we got the first Hellcat...way cheaper. Sad, I really liked Safford, but there is no loyalty from them, so none from me. Koons is right up there with them. Oh well, that's the beauty of the internet and a search button.

    Yep, could not agree with you more1FSTCAT. After all that business you gave them they should've given you a deal..They did come down to $5k over but since I know MSRP is out there (one dealer would even cover shipping) no reason to pay more. I have a 15 z06 I bought for well under MSRP in NC in early 15 when dealers here were MSRP only..this area definitely has a markup..

    I use Safford in Springfield for service on my 2012 Challenger 392 (and they do a great job) but had the same experience when I talked to them about pricing on a Hellcat in early 2015. Ended up going with Farrish in Fairfax who had no problem with MSRP.

    Chrysler should put an end to this tuff happening. I remember way back when the PT cruiser came out, dealers were AMD adjusting them $5,00

    Definitely agree, to be fair to Chrysler other car companies like Porsche do the same. It just makes the buying experience terrible..

    Go to Hall Dodge in Virginia Beach and talk to Butch. They have allocations available all at MSRP. Great people to work with . They have delivered new Hellcats in 5-6 weeks to buddies of mine . Another friend from Jersey just ordered from them due to the ridiculous mark-up there. He will be riding by mid-march .

    Hall is a spectacular dealer IMO. Butch is now a friend of mine after getting my HC 12/14. Their SRT tech is fantastic.

    MM77,

    Sorry to hear about your experience.

    We got our IE 392 and Hellcat from Safford Warrenton and have nothing but great experience to share. All MSRP...No Hassels....Good on all parts of deals.

    Be sure to post pics of the one you get from the other dealer.

    See you around VA.

    Thanks intercooler, I will add my name once I get it.

    Thanks BK2. Should have the cat by this weekend. Looks like some nice weather this weekend. Let me know if anyone makes it to cars and coffee in great falls. I go there every couple months...

    Found Farrish selling at MSRP. Open and honest discussion. Contact Stacie, is outstanding!

    I had same experience talking to Stafford...overpriced, big ADM and no discussion. I had bought my 2010 Challenger R/T from them and was good experience but certainly not on the Hellcat.
