    Just a few minutes ago, I checked the website just for fun. 4 chargers and 18 challengers are listed. Some might be at their sister dealership in Orlando. Some still have ADM tacked on, some could be in transit, I didn't spend much time trying to look at each one.

    I didn't think it was possible for a dealer to accumulate that many without more sales. Several of these they've had for quite a while. Totally ridiculous, I tried to buy one 3 different times, no luck as they wouldn't budge off the ADM.

    I'd like to suggest prospective buyers give them a call, but I'd be wasting everyone's time.

    Is it Central? Tell them to suck an egg. They wanted $94 k when I stopped by in January when I was in Orlando area. I went home to Mass and payed sticker. They will die with the cars rotting on the vine and then take a loss. There are so many out there who would pay such a mark up now?

    Funny you mentioned that dealer. I stopped by there Friday to take a look at a maximum steel challenger HC they had listed online for approx. $3k under MSRP. I've bought cars from them before (terrible dealer IMO but they have always been quite willing to deal in the past)...

    Anyways, test drove a black Challenger HC they had outside, liked it, decided to go inside to talk numbers. This is when their nonsense started. They come out with a price of almost $80k (basically MSRP plus $15k ADM)...I tell them that they had the same car listed for $3k under MSRP online to which they say it was a third party mistake but they will go MSRP for me only :rolleyes:. Of course they're MSRP for me only deal had them giving me easily $4k under what my trade was worth...

    In the end they had actually come down to what was probably a reasonable deal but by that point I was so fed up with them and their pushy, unprofessional sales manager that I left...I had to get to a end of year party for my daughter at school and simply didn't have any more time to waste there...

    They called once later that day but I did not have time to answer. Will see if they call again tomorrow and if any more movement has happened...

    Very shady all around though. The bait and switch nonsense, in particular just left a bad taste in my mouth..

    I didn't even talk to them about their cars I went after hours just to look at colors. I have heard so many horror stories about them. I ended up buying mine from Autonation in Brunswick. Struck the deal on the phone and drove up and was in and out within 2 hours! Great experience. They have another one inbound. (White) if anyone is looking.

    I've noticed cars listed at msrp on websites like cars.com end up having a ADM when you go and talk to them in person. Seems to be a common practice.

    Autonation had an Admin fee attached and I told them I wasn't paying it and they came off immediately.

    Glad it worked for ya! When I said that they told me to have a good day and I was on my way out the door. No calls no "let me talk to my manager". Nadda. Sad part is these cars are selling in my area.

    We all have that power! We want don't need. I agree they are selling them with the admin charge, but not my money. I was completely ready to walk knowing they are out there. I also had a pearl white in bound for MSRP, but was petrified it would turn into another 2015 debacle and I would never see it. So I was still shopping around.
