    Looking for: Ivory A 8 Challenger

    Preferably equipped just like the one that RIPOFF Lakeland FL Dodge has. And hopefully the one that ends being the office of the sales manager as it should end up being a permanent fixture @ $90,000.

    Yes willing to pay reasonable ADM.

    Thanks, any help will really be appreciated !

    Does it have to be ivory? Local guy just emailed me about a white A8 with black hood and red interior. They're asking $77,580. Monroe Dodge in Monroe, MI. 734-242-6370.

    Hey Terry,
    Thanks for the heads up !! They are asking somewhere around $11k to 12K over and I really had
    trouble talking myself into going up to 5K if I had to for the right car. But this is great response maybe
    they just might come down out of the clouds.
    So once again I say thanks for the help.

    No problem! Ya I know it's over priced but maybe open dialog with them so they know you're interested. If it's still there in like 2-3 weeks I'm sure they'd come down on ADM if not right away. That's just the price they're starting at.

    I thought I had a deal with Lakeland Dodge back in January. At the last minute they hit me with the ADM plus $899 for "new car prep". I wouldn't even think of buying anything from them.

    Lakeland & their sister stealership Airport in Orlando are 1st class turds, blows me away that anyone would buy anything from them ! And yes, they have an insane "dealer fee" to boot - higher than the damn Aston Martin & Mercedes dealer :eek:

    Ferman is just as bad - $699 fee + $199 tag processing fee - net another $898 stealer fee @ a friggin Dodge dealer.

    Yep, these two are bad enough but even worse is Greenway CDJ. Doing business elsewhere put $23,000 in my pocket.

    It's tough in Florida.

    Paid a 5k ADM on my ordered car plus a six month nerve biting wait. Annoying yes but I don't feel too bad about the 5k ADM since I got exactly what I wanted. I just wish the dealership would have thrown something in to take the sting out...couple of oil changes, credit for the purchase of another vehicle, etc.

    First open a dialogue with sales manager, then offer $2k over, they will decline, offer $4k, then final offer them at $5k over. They will see you working with them and it should work.

    That's why I bought outside FL but I've heard that Fields CDJ in Sanford sells at MSRP. Check with your dealer. Your first 4 oil changes should be paid for by
    Dodge.

    You are correct about the oil changes. FCA pays for the first 4 oil changes. I checked Fields on Friday along with a bunch of others. I did find two more IVORY Hellcats besides the one in Lakeland.
    One at Jim Brown's Citrus in Dade City.
    One at Tampa Dodge. I called Tampa and they said it was IN TRANSIT and he thought they were taking bids but was not sure, so he would check and call back. He never did.
    I thought something was funny about that many Ivory's all at once and all equipped the same.
    Yep, you guessed it, they all had the same VIN !

    I have now called on the same car 3 times. I wanna fight back !!! I don't want to hurt anyone's
    chances of getting a Hellcat, so give me your thoughts about this idea: Many people keep calling
    these 4 dealers (this includes Greenway) asking about "their" Hellcat thus inflating what the dealer
    thinks is demand and never sells it. He will always be able to sell it for MSRP eventually but at
    least he will have to pay some extra Floor Planning. I wish there was a way that the dealers would
    have to eat the car but that's not going to happen.

    Suncoast CJD in Clearwater has been great with me. MSRP all the way.
