Re: Anyone gonna place an order on March 8th?

I agree, I bought a 2005 rocky mountain before my 06 Limited. My 05 suffered from the dreaded "I was just driving and the car died" problem. Other than a few starters, my 06 has been much more reliable. I will wait to buy a litely used 2012 in 2013. Still hoping for the SRT8 though.

Re: Anyone gonna place an order on March 8th?

Too rich for me, my 05' is finally paid off in June so I plan to drive that while its still under the power train warranty which will be another 2 years or so unless I can find a better paying job then i'd go 2010 SRT or wait till 2012-13 when the new SRT comes out although the Challengers and new Mustangs are tempting. Im worried about all the new features they are packing into the WK2 its just more things to go wrong and everyone knows when something can go wrong with a Chrysler it does especially electrical, I just want a big simple engine like the old days. I want fast and loud I could care less about airbag suspensions and heated this and that.

Re: Anyone gonna place an order on March 8th?

Well it seems that I am the only one that attempted to order a WK2 on March 8th....still no Vehicle Order Number as of today. By the way I ordered a charger R/T when they first came out as well as a Charger SRT8 when they came out and never had any first model year problems.

I would definitely go Hemi Laredo I think that would be pretty cool. Same power, less weight, and not all the bells and whistles I dont need but if I go Jeep again I think I will go SRT8. Hopefully I hear back from this job I just applied for because I could possibly buy a 2010 SRT later this year if I get a steadier income.

The ordering date has been pushed back just a bit, they have been making final revisions for the option packages and pricing. Dealer training will start next week, which has to happen before the order banks can be opened. Should happen in the next couple weeks, they may decide to time it with the start of the NY auto show.
