Re: Test Drove 2008 Srt8

one thing i always mention is-

be prepared to spend up to at least 10 grand a yr just on gas alone. not including payments on the loan. and if youre under 25- good luck with insurance quote on a SRT8 in a highly populated city- bumble phuck areas are always lower insurance rates though.

if you got that, then go for it.

I live in Suffolk county and it's a very populated area no where like Kansas my insurance would be atleast 5grand a year just for my truck if I got an srt8, and I also have 4 cars under the insurance and a Camaro soon

Re: Test Drove 2008 Srt8

I almost bought an SRT today. A friend of mine is a dealer. I almost traded in my Laredo for a 2010 SRT. Dammit. So close.

Payments as low as 400-450. I want to scream. I'm just not ready yet. I will have one soon though.

10k a year!!! I mean I know they guzzle but mann, you must do 90% city driving and romp her all the time haha, what do you get maybe 3/4 days on a full tank4

Ive driven a lot of guzzlers and have never even been close to anything to put me on pace for $10k a year??? I guess its good to be "prepared" to pay that but I'd expect to pay only HALF that in a year

quite the opposite my travelings are 90% highway and 10% city. i dont drive to work or need to so i dont daily drive mine though. 3-4 times a week i go for leisure cruises. i didnt need this jeep. i WANTED this jeep. is why i still have it. but not for nothing my 04 overland v8 ate soo much gas that when i switched to the SRT8- i didnt even really notice the 1-3 miles lost per gallon.

but not for nothing, every yr i test drove the SRT8 and every yr the dealership even stated to me "you know if you daily drive this car, your going to be spending at least 10-15 grand a year"......

i said yes i know! get me a black one now!!!! anyone who knows me i LOVE the beast too much

Re: Test Drove 2008 Srt8

You are spending at least 7k on gas in a year on a SRT.

IMO.

Re: Test Drove 2008 Srt8

Hmmm..... I don't think I would spend that much. Why? I don't drive that much. I'm a home body for the most part.

Yeah the only problem about owning an srt is that you will find out that you make quick friends with the gas pumps lol
