Test Drove 2008 Srt8

Today i went to my local dealership on the island and test drove a steel blue 2008 Jeep srt8. I LOVE THIS TRUCK, i have a 3.7 and it is sooo much faster its ridiculous, I had my friend in the passenger seat and the employee in the back seat, on the final turn back to the dealership and turned off the esp, and floored it, the truck took off like no other in the shortest amount of time that truck hit 80 and the speed limit was 30 but i was watching for cops , But when the esp was on the truck wouldn't gain speed as fast as it would because it tried catching traction every second. This is a crappy "review" even though its not new, that was the fastest vehicle i've ever driven and i wish i had the money to purchase it because i would love to have that as my daily driver and it gets better gas mileage than my truck too! Honestly that truck is so worth it. I really wish i could afford this truck bc i love the look and feel and i can only wish. Idk i just felt that i should write up my thoughts on the truck. The only thing i didn't like was that it was used with 30k miles and the tranny wasn't up to par when i would switch gears it wouldn't change, and the rear end from people flooring it all the time seemed messed up. Overall i love the truck, i wouldn't buy it used from a dealership but def new or private sale.

^Indeed it is.


And btw no matter if you buy these used from a dealer or privately, these things are beat on by the previous owner. It's all about if the owner does the preventative maintenance.
