    Dealer gave me a price and I thought it was an awesome price. It was like $500 under MSRP. He later contacted me and said he forgot to add in the Gas Guzzler tax of 1700. So I found out they were charging me 1,200 over MSRP.

    What do you guys think about this?

    $1200 would be worth it to a lot a folk on this site to be done with the heartache. Is it ready to go or are you getting a "promise"?

    Sounds like he is feeding you a line of BS.

    The gas tax should've been already included in the msrp, I would double check the window sticker, but honestly even for that price you would be getting a better deal than I did. lol

    Harley, that's just to drop my order in. No way he can tell me a delivery date!

    He said no strings attached that if I find a better deal then I can get my deposit back. These clowns at all of the local dealerships keep saying "yes MSRP" and then they switch it up on you when you walk in the door!

    Nightmare, I'm starting to think I am going to stick with this guy. I've read people paying more so I may just ride it out.

    Does anybody know if them only having one other one on order may speed up my order? I talked to Dodge and they said each dealer gets a certain number of HC and then on to the next.

    I would stick with them if they're not going to upcharge you later, because that's a great deal. Now how fast your order comes in all depends on the dealership, have you asked them how many they've sold? and how fast they were sold?

    They're charging gas guzzler taxes for both if you look at the window sticker on the cars Chrysler has it already added into the MSRP. the dealership shouldn't be adding it on top of MSRP though because it's supposed to be included if you look over the window sticker.

    Yes I have. He is newer to the dealership and said that he can only tell me they currently have one on order. He doesn't know how many they sold prior to that. He said he will check to see when that order was placed and he will let me know. It is a smaller dealership about 3 hours outside of Chicago. I was told smaller dealerships could possibly get em faster because they don't have many in que.

    The reason I am not sweating it too much is because I have a $1,000 certificate from USAA that try better honor when the car comes in.

    The Gas Guzzler Tax is a line item right on the Window Sticker so it is included in the MSRP. Your dealer is a crook so watch yourself dealing with them.
    Next he may tell you he forgot the $995 Destination Charge (also on the Sticker).

    that makes sense since you ordered the hellcat, they may have forgot to add the gas guzzler tax to the MSRP since the car hasn't been built yet. So he's not over charging you or anything because it is required with all hellcats.

    You could always ask him to ask his General manager how many they've sold. I always spoke directly to a manager when I ordered both of my hellcats.
