Im in the market for a used hellcat charger and came across this one. 3 owners, 26k miles and on the lot since 1/20/21. Carfax is there but we know they aren't the best. the only thing thats got me questioning the car is the dealership reviews. Some of them are not stellar, mostly they dont do the "inspection."
To me the car looks good but ive never owned a HC, so im a tad nervous about pulling the trigger.
So im here asking for some opinions on this one. Let me know what ya think, thanks!

What kind of warranty are you getting? If nothing, get the FCA one for peace of mind. They must have some kind of inspection report prior to selling something. Ask to take it somewhere else then for an inspection. What did the Car Fax show? What exactly worries you about the dealer? Selling a lemon or what?

Get a pre-purchase inspection from a CDJR dealership. Make it a contingency for purchasing the vehicle and if it doesn't come out clean walk away

No warranty at this particular dealership, definitely gonna pick up a Mopar extended one.(good idea) Im going to take the car to the dealership linked above by Granite, to get the inspection. Carfax just shows when it was sold, no real service history. Looks like the services that were logged were at dealers. What worries me is the reviews of people buying cars for them and on the way home the CEL pops on and the dealership says tough luck. They sound like a complete nightmare if you have problems with a vehicle. I would be flying in to get the car and then driving to Vegas. I guess thats where i roll the dice lol

So you will be the 4th owner.... And if you try to sell, it would be to the 5th owner... I would not be comfortable with that at this price, sorry. I have gone cheap many times with a lot of things, sometimes it works, but it can really bite you with cars.

Couldn't do it at that price.. Hell, I sold my 2018 ZL1 with less than 20k on it for almost that much....I mean, if it's what you want, I get it..

But to me, I just don't make this deal. You could buy a new 392 Scat Pack Charger for that price...

Wouldn't be a Hellcat, but it would be a bad ass ride that's new...
