Re: how does the SRT do in the snow?

Tell them you will take the 2010 if they throw in a new set of Blizzaks also for free plus tire rotations and oil changes for the life of the car. The dealers are hungry for sales.

Back to topic...
I'm a little nervous about the snow trial. Alot of power, tires wider than snowboards and did I mention alot of power? LOL....
Plus.....it's too clean to just go out and play in the deep stuff. It'll be torture enough going to work tomorrow with all the salt and crap on the roads

Im up North in Lowell, near the NH border. I see the same two srt8's daily driving in Boston, one black and one red, other than that there are none around me, never seen one at a dealer. The srt8 is not common around me, ALL I see is regular WK's so I think thats why I get away with the mods I have done and people liking it.

After yestardays snow storm my car looked nicen clean from the melted snow, but after getting back from work driving on the highway it looks two tone, white from all the salt on the bottom and black up top. My rims look white now. Im about to go throw a bucket of hot water on them right now.

Re: how does the SRT do in the snow?

im holding off. i saw the 08 today-but since they have the dealer page we were looking at some 09-s at the same price point. this guy there is pulling out all the stops for me today cause its my birthday** he caught wind on the paper and said lets make it happen for ur birthday present- hahah. anyways we were checking the dealers online depot of 400+ jeeps. we found some 09s for the same price range. im in no rush to settle for the 2010 (the payments come pass my affordability) they are in a rush but im not. my trade in is there and my money is down paid. i have given them until next thursday deadline( i may come in to some more money so im stretching it out timewise to get my monthly(s) down.

the excitement of finally owning an SRT8 is too great as of now.. hahah

i can buy the 2010 today but then id be eating out of canned food for a long time.. 2008-09 is really the only thing i can afford. of course i can go for 06, or 07's but i want the upgrades that arrived in 08.

hahah the HUN is on the prowl hhaa. Atilla the HUN that is*--who im named after.


im looking only for black. i dont want any other color really. if i had to a second choice it would be that silver or gray that everyone complains has no color or whatever. its a solid shade on the SRT8 regardless. i just cant imagine it any other color.

Re: how does the SRT do in the snow?

I say get what you can afford. Like you said, you will be able to be driving it happy without going to the market to pick up canned food for dinner. Lol. Even the 06 srt8 is sick, which is out of my price range for now so im settling for my Laredo SRT Design edition WK.

Atilla,
Do you own your home? You can do a HELOC and you get to write off the interest that you pay every year as a tax deduction.
Also, if you buy before the end of the year, the sales tax you have to pay, you can also deduct, but you have to buy before the end of the year.
So...Doing the math....
You can get a HELOC for 4.9%...
I figured out you pay about 1600 a year over 5 years in interest. at 30% of tax deduction, that's about $500 in your pocket every year.
As well as sales tax on 40,000K (MA = 6.25% = 2500 x 30% = $750 in your pocket.) Part of the Stimulus package.
If you trade in, the sales tax liability goes down with the trade. So the number above is without a trade in.


You should be able to get the dealer down to 41K or lower on a new SRT8 fully loaded.
Subtract out that other stuff, trade in and cash down and you get the price pretty low.
The other nice thing about the HELOC is that it's an interest only loan. So if for one month, you can't pay the amount your supposed to pay, you can pay only the interest. (You should set a period that the loan should be payed off in, ie 60 months.)
PM me and I can send you more accurate numbers for your situation.

Another true and hard realization is you'll spend about 5,000 in gas a year driving 15,000 miles. But those are 15,000 FUN miles.

Sorry for the book and the HiJack of the thread.

Re: how does the SRT do in the snow?

quickone^ thanks for the input and for giving a sh*t about my money whoas. appreciate it.

i dont own a house--yet* but those are all interesting aspects i hadnt had any idea of. thanks for sharing all that.

also the realization of gas monies--- yea ive already factored in that issue of gas guzzlin'. my 96 limited ate soo much gas in that v8 also my 04 overland on paper moderate gas mileage but in actuallity i got roughly 13-14 highway and the city is unheard of in a overland. so roughly 8 city 12 hwy is pretty much the same a lil less but def as u said. " going be very fun miles!!" cant wait.
