Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

I want to know what price is on the order form for the SRT8. Jeep au have not released any pricing, so what is everyone being told. My dealer is very slack, even though I have told them twice I am interested in the SRT8, I have had no calls. It is a pity such a good vehicle is being stuffed by local Jeep au BS and hopeless dealers.

Was this being driven by a dealer do you know on dealer plates or personal vehicle?

Did it sounds good?

It had full Vic registration plates on it.
We were sitting at a set of lights and he turned into the road we had just come down. As I wasn't driving I didn't really hear it (it was morning peak too!!). The person driving it was in a business shirt. Having said that, there is a dealer less than 1k away and they did come from that direction.

Who knows???

Whatever the bottom line is one thing is guaranteed, we Aussies will pay 30-50% more than the Yanks and Europeans! So not only do we get belted with higher prices just 'cause we live down here but they rub it in with useless knuckleheads who aren't interested in providing customer service when someone waves a fist full of cash in front of them!

Like most good things, these cars practically sell themselves, ideally you want Chrysler managing the import process into 1 national holding yard and distribute from there cutting out the dealership altogether. Then all they need is to have service divisions sprinkled throughout the land.

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

$91,500 drive away with Tow Pack and Sunroof, you did better than us there was no haggling involved.
Our dealer won't budge because they know they can sell the car instantly so they have stated they will let us out of the deal if unhappy with the price (which is slightly wrong considering we have showed our interest for 6 months).

The price they had been set was $86000.00 driveaway (inc stamp duty and delivery and rego) plus $4000.00 for sunroof and then $1500.00 for towpack. They couldn't provide us with a price for half sunroof and rear DVD player at the time, but I'd say $3000-$4000 and that wasn't a priority for us because we will be sitting in the front!!

So *SigH* we lost out! Which dealer? We ordered ours through DVG Melville


BTW in regards to one being seen, they haven't been complied yet in Australia and do not exist on redbook or on the licencing list, so chances are it was driving from the warf to the holding yard (which is prixcar in Perth unsure who holds the contract in the Eastern States).

I did some haggling and got the tow pack, sunroof, 12 months rego, stamp duty etc for $88k driveaway.

How does that compare?

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

Jeep Osborne Park. I ordered back in February as a Birthday present to myself.

I also got them to throw in the extended warranty and 12 months rego for that price.

Id do some more 'haggling' when you finally get your car.

We will have to meet up and compare notes when we get our cars.

As I said,
this one here in Melb had full Vic registration plates on it, not dealer plates, and was heading into the CBD during peak hour.

Here in Melb they do not drive them off the wharf, they are all trucked off. I'm on the wharf regularly watching them unload the ships and load the trucks.

Hey Matty, you need a new past-time!

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

If anyone is interested, I have the latest SRT8 brochure.
You can download it HERE
I have asked Milous to post it up with all the other brochures.

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

Apparently 2 SRT's were offloaded at Port Kembla on 26th April, so I don't think they are going to a National Holding Yard, unless those cars were to be used for getting Rego approval from NSW RTA.

Re: SRT8 Order Book is Open

Awesome work Enforcer. Loved having that read through the brochure. Wasn't given the option of the 19 speaker srt audio package but hoping Aussie jeeps are standard with this.
