Hello everyone,
So I am looking to order a HC Redeye, but I have never ordered a vehicle before. I went to my local big box dealer and was trying to get some basic information. Like what’s the required deposit, is there a dealer mark up, you know the basics. I wasn’t able to get any of that. I was also trying to get a ballpark of delivery dates after ordering. If any of you can shed some light on these questions for me, that would be amazing!! I’ll take anything you guys can give me.

A lot of dealers want a non refundable deposit. Some will do it as refundable. Mine wanted a non refundable $500 deposit which I had no problem with tbh. Mark up? Oh hell no. Nope. No way. Uh uh.
Normally delivery is roughly eight weeks or so but now with the chip shortage that time frame will likely be longer.

^^^^^ if so, call Jake at Dan Cummins in Ky. They are still doing pretty good discounts. I had a $3000 non refundable deposit. Which was fine by me, I got a Hell of a deal.

you definitely shouldn’t pay over msrp. For comparison, I ordered a Charger HC Redeye and got 5k off of msrp + whatever incentive is running at the time of delivery.

Now at least in my area, the two dealerships that said they could get it said that allocation for the car wouldn’t be until June - so I’d be looking at July-September delivery. One wanted a 3k deposit refundable, the other said it would be non-refundable.

this was also my first order. I am surprised at the various experiences reported as they seem all over the map. Butthe biggest surprise was that after talking with eight dealerships, none could do better in deliver other than a vague end of summer. Even the July September date is a guess. But the two dealerships I narrowed down to we’re at least up front about tans told me how they came to that conclusion.

That’s what I had heard that it was taking longer. He told me 12-16 weeks maybe longer. I asked if the build price was the price I was going to be paying and he wouldn’t give me a straight answer.

Located in Jacksonville fl. Willing to travel to a point, but I don’t want to have to ship it home or drive it back and put a bunch of miles on it.

Anyone who wont sit down with you and talk money prob thinks youre not serious or doesnt want to scare you away with how high his price is. I would not be going back there.

Jake from Dan Cummins in Kentucky looks to be your guy now for best deal. Being in the state of FL, notorious for jacking up Hellcat prices because of year long good weather, I'd advise you consider the trip to KY to save thousands.

I saw most of those, they are very nicely priced! I’m pretty set on a particular one I’d like. I really want the same one I had, just in a Redeye. But I appreciate the finds!! I do like a couple of them.

Well then you're gonna have to order one to get EXACTLY what you want, and @Tannehill nailed it for getting the best price....you're gonna have to travel to get it (or have it delivered to you)

....unless you like paying more money for no reason

I called Jake the other day, he wasn’t available so I left him a message to call me back. He hasn’t done that yet. I found a HC in Texas that is exactly what I am looking for.

Find a car you like on a lot and buy it. Or talk with Jake. Or you can order a rush build covid special just waiting for the next unavailable part production delay. Meantime we are putting on miles.

Alright, here’s an update! I spoke with Jake, he is by far the best as you said he would be. He got me a GREAT deal and I ordered my Challenger Redeye today! Super excited to be in the HC family again. 😁
