He didn't say 2K below invoice, the deal is 2K off MSRP! The deal offered is an insult, plain and simple.

But, regardless what you see on the internet, getting under invoice (truly getting under invoice, not playing fast and loose with trade in numbers) on an SRT is not easy to come by in most parts of the country. You can usually get an SRT down close to Invoice if you are willing to shop, play some dealers off each other or live in a metro area like Chicago with some mega dealers. With that being said, a demo vehicle is NEVER worth more then invoice as a starting point.

Invoice on a $68K MSRP is about $64,500. The true dealer cost on the truck is about $61K, anything below that is a loss but since it's a demo it's not unheard of for them to have other avenues to recoup the loss.

I'd say $61K +TTL is a good deal and it sounds like more then $5K less than they would sell you a new one for. I don't know where you live but hit a few other dealers, you may be surprised. I also wouldn't get too hung up on it being a demo and worrying about how it was driven. I've bought about 10 demo vehicles over the years and have never had an issue, EVER.

Sorry my mistake. Thanks for correction. 2k discount! I still agree with what you said though! Good points made

Agree with mjw930.....$61 or $62k would be fair.

Well some demos might not be bad but considering this is a 6.1 hemi and the owner probably drove it like the guys in the garage did in ferris buellers day off I might shy away from getting that one. do you due diligence and get a new one an shop the dealers..peace of mind is priceless in addition to getting below invoice on that vehicle.

Re: Need your opinion on 2014 SRT purchase

Hey guys, thanks for all the input. After thinking about it, reading all the post and speaking with another dealership, I am not moving forward with the demo SRT.

I spoke to another dealership that i have purchased several Jeeps from. They are hooking me up with a new SRT with the wheels I want, color I want, upgraded stereo, pono roof and spare tire for right around 64,500 (the exact numbers are at my office).

However, I am going to stop by the dealership that offered me the demo SRT and take it for a test drive...ha

That's not quite right on the break on topic - The engine can't be damaged, you're right there but the differential is what is setting in the first 500 miles. How the vehicle is driven sets up the way it will react down the road. Ask anyone with race experience or exp with higher end engines. Opinion are varied with consumers but the guys that build these, and race these, all say - for the first 500 miles, treat it with respect and don't stomp on it.

Not sure why you think these have been broken in on the track before we get them, that also is not correct. These aren't Ferrari's - they're Jeep's.

you misunderstood what he was saying, he meant they get hammered on at the srt experience and dont have any problems,(although unless he tours with the srt team i have no idea how he would know that)
