Re: MSRP released!

I'm with you guys that is a very healthy dream to have lol.

But I also agree that it will be hard to find an SRT8 that is lightly used. When I first purchased an SRT8 Jeep that was the 07 model I believe, the previous owner had driven it so hard that I needed a transfer case within the first week of ownership (thank goodness for it still being in warranty). This almost made me swear off of this car, but man when it did drive it was like a dream so here I am back again waiting for the WK2 version!!!

And I know we complained about service you get with Dodge, Jeep, Chrysler and I will agree with those that said they had great service! The big problem I had was when you turn in this cream of the crop vehicle to get fixed and they look at you like your crazy when you ask about a rental car.

But for me the good FAR outweighs the bad, so I can only hope that it stays that way!

Re: MSRP released!

I traded my 06 in after owning for just under two years and it had about 22K on it. I never took it to a track and always used Mobil 1 and always put in premium.

I think those saying I won't be able to find a nice slightly used one don't seem to understand that the majority of the 3,000 or so units produced each year will not be tracked, and I would argue that most will be purchased by older men that only rarely "beat" on it due to the large price tag.

I agree! Most of the people who can afford a $60K luxury SUV aren't going to treat it like it was a track beater. Clean, used examples will be plentiful in a couple years just like you can find hundreds of Cayenne turbos that haven't been abused for a fraction of their list price.

You mean people buy a sport "SUV" such as a SRT8 that is fully trackable and just use it to go to the grocery store and on church on sunday?

Why not just buy a Prius?

P.S. I know what you mean about people babying it, but what a waste of potential........

It's like marrying a Victoria Secret model and just hold hands.......

Re: MSRP released!

So I saw on Facebook on the 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 page someone says that they are a dealer in the NYC area. They claim to have 8 SRT8 Jeeps coming in. They also said that they just checked and they have just come off the line and they should be at the dealership in two weeks. Is this a big lie or is it possible for a dealer to really be getting these in?

Re: MSRP released!

I knew better, but I couldn't help but hope. I just don't understand what causes an indefinite delay.

I guess that's the downside of joining this forum always being a little ahead of the curve on having information. So now we are upset with pricing, delays, etc when the rest of the world just knows a fast jeep is coming out sometime soon...
