Re: Looking to Buy SRT Track Experience

I guess each location has its pros and cons for where the SRT event is held.

The SRT event is fun, but wish it wasn't so much promotional and more racing! Let us go faster, drive them harder, and turn traction control off.

SRT talks about how few owners use their experience, but they don't really advertise it, nor do the dealers inform you of it (for the most part).

Raising the price from $500 is not worth it IMO. I want more of a racing experience than an SRT promotional drive for that price.

I will still buy VINs for cheaper to use if possible, but I wouldn't pay more than $300 for a ticket to the SRT event.

Just my 2 cents

Bump…GLWS

They have raised the price to the point where their customer is of a higher demographic, but the dealers have not learned how to provide the better service that people spending 50-70k demand. I walked into a local dealer yesterday to talk about a 2014 SRT GC, and if they would possibly have one to test drive. The sales manager then came out and asked me quite rudely what I was trying to accomplish. I explained to him I was interested in test driving the vehicle and to find out what kind of discounts they offer off MSRP...he replied by saying that if I need to ask about discounts then this is not the vehicle for me and perhaps I would be interested in a non SRT Grand Cherokee. Needless to say I walked out of the dealership. The discount is not going to make me be able to afford the vehicle, but I am going to try to get the best deal I can if I decide to buy the vehicle.
When I bought my Audi, I test drove the S4, S5 and S6 and everyone at the dealership was very friendly and welcoming. I understand this is a hot new vehicle, and if they do not wish to discount the vehicle that is fine but there is no need to be condescending to a potential customer.
Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge dealers have some of the lowest dealer satisfaction scores of any make, this is something they desperately need to fix if they want to play in the big leagues. All the SRT Vehicles and even some of the upper trim Grand Cherokees are getting into the luxury car price levels and while the vehicles are competitive the dealer service is not.

Re: Looking to Buy SRT Track Experience

A half dozen dealers have 2014 Jeep SRT's in transit according to Jeep's search site but I don't think any have one on the lot for sale yet so a test drive is out of the question right now but it looks like you need to find another dealer anyway.
