SRT8 WK2 broken !

Hey Guys,

well.. we are only few SRT8 owners in UAE. 3 to be exact ( including me, im the only silver though )

anyway a guy passes by me at work, and mentions the SRT8

he said his friend got an exported US SRT8 from Southern Cali.

he got a black SRT8 only had 1500 miles on it.

the shocking part is. the gearbox fell at 1500 miles and got fixed by the waranty and then at around 2000 miles the gear box fell again and the agency in Abu Dhabi said the waranty is revoked of misuse. and he is not convinced that a gearbox can break in 500 mere miles.

he is considering selling it since the waranty got revoked for a very cheap price of 80k AED which is around 20k dollars..

i think the price was a bluff! but he broke a gearbox of an SRT8 2012 !!!

2 TIMES in 500 MILES

what do u guys think??

still want someone who owns an SRT8 2012 to tell me how to run DRL LEDS with the normal headlights at night

thank you

Re: SRT8 WK2 broken !

I do have the feeling that they didn't fix the gear-box correctly when it was in the first time.

Re: SRT8 WK2 broken !

Smells fishy. Seems like either the service backing is subpar, or there was indeed abuse by the driver. Hard to tell either way, but this is somewhat of a workhorse of a tranny.

Regardless of above, I would purchase for $20k.

I had a hydraulic pressure switch in the tranny fail at 75 miles.
