Re: First SRT8 posted on eBay!

in other words, some douchebag agreed to buy it at a $5k mark up.

Idiot.

For $5k over MSRP, someone can have mine when it comes in. I'll go over the next day and buy a CTS-V for $6k less than they paid.

Re: First SRT8 posted on eBay!

The dealer is going to make around $10,000 profit on that sale...

Re: First SRT8 posted on eBay!

Something that I guarantee is going to happen - dealers are going to add markup to vehicles that customers have already put deposits down/confirmed a price. Some customers will also find that their dealer is going to sell to someone else at a higher price.

I agree, this is what I was referring to in the shipment thread about 75% of those ordered not getting the "price protection" pricing. I don't think all of those 75% will get them sold out from underneath them, but I think the dealers will simply not admit to price protection whether they are clueless to it, or just playing ignorant.

hahahaha that is to funny but i fear this may become true. when i called the dealer today to confirm my order and delivery, we also spoke of the other 3 srt8's they ordered which are priced for above MSRP. she relayed that mine is the only one below MSRP.

Re: First SRT8 posted on eBay!

Considering this was a Sold vehicle either the original buyer backed or the dealer is going to sell it out from under them.

Re: First SRT8 posted on eBay!

It is pretty apparent that the new Jeep is overpriced. Look at it this way. Do you buy the new Jeep or pick up a pre-owned X5M for just a little more? At this point your not but 6-12K away from it and there are several CPO's out there with 10K or less miles with 100K warranties. The same can be said about a pre-owned Range Rover Sport. I realize its probably not quite as sporty as the Jeep, but it is certainly no slouch on the track. Lets face it, both the RR sport and the X5M are on a different level when it comes to being worthy of a sticker price at that level.

Dont get me wrong, Im thrilled about the new Jeep, but they dropped the ball in a few areas and the high sticker price only makes these areas stick out more. Im thinking there will be several of these out there in the next 6 months with dealers needing to sell them. In reality though, thinking about one of these loaded and with 6K miles and a 50K price still sounds high to me.

Re: First SRT8 posted on eBay!

what about a 2010 with 15k miles for $42k like I just saw online? Thats not a rip off???....it is to me. Crappy interior, bad materials, build quality, smaller engine, outdated looks, shakes, rattles, 2004 technology.....etc etc.

Comparing a $100K vehicle to a $60K vehicle is just silly.....not to boot you are comparing used.....
