Re: FYI - One available in NJ at $8,409 discount!

what a great thread...and the wk2 SRT8 is a GREAT car IMO...since mine is $2k away from being paid off, I have decided to wait...but in the next 3 years I will own one of these bad boys. It is all relative, but for the price IMO there is not a better SUV on the road. All around package is the best of both worlds in the wk2 SRT8.

Isn't that what america is all about? Buy something you can't afford, without thinking about it, and falling flat on your face with the hopes someone will bail you out? Or just take a huge hit and say I won't do that again...haha thanks Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac

There are a select few that CAN afford the wk2 SRT8, but are prudent enough in their situation to realize it is not the smartest option and to hold off...hopefully in 2-3 years I can pick up a low-mileage 2014 with the 8.4" touch screen and 8 speed tranny

Thats what i expected.,,Thanks for the info. I have a 3.6L Summit right now and I am getting 16/22... Hopefully in a couple of weeks I will be taking delivery of my SRT!!!! Super excited!

Unless you are a Jeep fanatic, like the very few that are here, you are going to give a few other rides in the same price range a hard look even if they are somewhat higher.
Pricing themselves out of the market? What? The SRT is priced very fairly IMO for what you get. Hell, my wife's Buick Enclave equipped to the hilt (and still it doesn't have much of the Jeep features let alone any performance goodies) was stickered at 51k almost 2 years ago. How about a fully loaded F150 or Silverado or even the Ram, have you seen sticker on those rigs? How is the 63k SRT8 priced out of the market even when compared to the BMW and Porsche.

Sorry.

Re: FYI - One available in NJ at $8,409 discount!

The gas tank is @ 23 gallons. I'm getting 19 mpg 70 mph on the highway. Having said that mileage sucks when you are putting your foot in it, hey it's a 392 HEMI moving 5100 lbs and all wheel drive...it is what it is.

This is a niche' vehicle for a niche' market knowing full well you DON"T BUY THIS MONSTER FOR THE GAS MILEAGE! It's the driving experience...and abit expensive...but worth every gas guzzling penny or...80-100 per tank!!

I forget where that is at. Up north somewhere. I bought the WK2 out of Fort Wayne, IN. That was the first stop of the trip coming to NM. I snapped pics of each fill up for mpg comparisons. Plus trying to get some baselines for mileage ranges on the highway. Anywho, NM gas is right around that price for premium. I think a few cents cheaper. I never really pay attention to gas prices. I swipe the debit card and fill up, then record to the electronic checkbook on the iPhone and go.

You're welcome to move on down though lol

Has anyone contacted this dealer to see if the price is legit? Figured at least a few people that have been waiting for a deal might find it worth the call.

I agree Mongoose, the fuel light went on and I drove another 30 km (18 miles) and I put 91 liters of fuel in.
