    I heard from a sales person at Fair Oaks Motors in VA that they were getting a Hellcat delivered, Sublime, which is unclaimed (purchaser pulled out of sale). Not sure on all the options/specs but might be worth giving them a call to see?

    It is a eight speed automatic. I know someone looking for a sublime green with a 6 speed.

    The one you see inbound is the one I passed on and put up here that SRT_HC_707 bought and just brought home the other day. My guess is the salesperson who passed this on is unaware it even came in yet and is gone.

    I have noticed it lingering on the Dodge search and their website. Not sure why, usually they drop out quickly once the car is delivered. I do know that SRT_HC_707 wasn't expecting it to arrive as soon and he got a call out of nowhere from his POC the other day that it was on site.

    There is definitely poor management on the Dodge website and dealer websites. You go on these sites and it states that there is a car on the lot. So you make an inquiry and you get, "Sorry it was sold last week!" So take the f__king thing off your website. Yes, I know it draws people to their sites and people might settle for something else.

    But all it takes is one or two mouse clicks and the sold Hellcat is deleted off the inventory!!


    Yeah! I will get off my pulpit!!

    It took a week for the one we bought to fall off the dealer's website and dodge.com.
    Dodge still shows a white one with red interior at Fowler Dodge in OKC. That is where we bought our SRT8 last year. All negotiated over the phone. They were great to work with. No idea if they have a market adjustment or what it would be, but I was heavily looking at calling on it if our black one had not come through.

    Thats what gripes me too, when searching you'll find quite a few cars that to the average consumer appear to be available for sale. However I would guess 80% are sold orders and were never available. It just wastes time for both the sales staff and the guy looking for a car.

    Our searches would be easier if the dealers just removed these stale listings. It would also be nice if said dealer would be up front and just tell us on the listings that they are wanting a 10K ADM. A few do but most don't.

    Well that was the only Sublime Challenger Hellcat that came up on Dodge.com for Fair Oaks Motors in VA.

    As already stated, the vehicle was sold to another forum member.

    Snappycat - You're being too logical. Then the dealers couldn't lure you in to do the bait and switch if they posted the ADM's up front. Plus that would more publicly show they're a Douche Bag dealer. Lol :D

    Funny, I called about this Hellcat today for a friend. He said he wasn't sure why it was still posted. Next one they have coming in is black but is a sold order. You can leave our info if you want a call about it since they had a few that were sold orders that the customer decided not to get.
