  • I'm in Houston and bought the December 28th newspaper ad vehicle - a 2006 Charger R/T with 63 miles on it for $25,690 plus TT&L. Sticker was $29,995 (no factory options). The price included a $1,000 rebate for financing through Chrysler. Rate was 6.64%. I will refinance elsewhere at a lower rate.

    The advertised ad price was $24,995, but after getting there (and spending 30 minutes with the salesman) I found out that they added $1,495 to every Charger for the Mopar Master Shield. I told them I wasn't paying it, the ad said car prices were + TT&L, and the car only had the original factory sticker on it. They came down to $800, then to $695 to be added to the ad price. Overall, it was a still good deal (I think) so I accepted it.

    Of course the finance guy tried to sell me every insurance and warranty item under the sun, but when I told him I wasn't happy about the $695 extra I was already paying, he dropped further discussion on them.

    Bottom line, good price, but I would not recommend the dealer because of the sales tactics. I thought that I may not see a price like this after December 31st. Another dealer two days earlier advertised a Charger R/T for $25,995 with Chrysler financing, but I did not contact them, so don't know if they pull the same tactics.
  • I'm try to get one organised over the next couple of weeks, assuming I can get my hands on one....everyone I talk to is saying they will go for over MSRP becuase they are low volume limited edition cars.

    The only dealer I have had commit to a price has mentioned $53,500 with every option, SRT I,II,III etc ...fully loaded. And even then I can't get the colour I necessarily want...

    I just want to know from anyone who may have one, what they may have paid and if $53,500 is truely over the top or not...(The dealer said that would be $8k over MSRP).
    Thanks Cristian
  • $53,500 ????
    drive that puppy and you'll be lucky to get half that two years from now.
    imagine a Chrysler going for more than list price....wow....what a comeback.
  • 2006 Dodge Charger RT, no additional options. Paid $26,599 vs MSRP $30,195 (incl dest). I love this car. I've never been happier driving around Los Angeles. I use to drive a Pontiac Grand Prix. Test drove the TL, CTS, G35, and of course Mustang GT. The RT simply rocks. This machine is sooo much more of a car than any of those I tested. Well worth the upgrade from the base SE model. The V8 5.7L hemi is just plain tough. This is the best four door muscle car ever. Dad use to own a 60s Charger when I was a kid. He must be so proud.
  • You'd have to be HIGH to pay that much! Do you realize for that price you could get a VERY gently used, loaded BMW M3?!

    Dodge has got PARKING LOTS full of these things.

    I have not bought one yet, but I'm planning on it, and shooting out a few emails to local dealers (no phone calls, no haggling, no hassling) telling them what I want (R/T with R&T etc.) i got a price from TWO of them $1,000 BELOW what Edmunds shows as INVOICE!

    Seriously, I'd assume that if are smart enough to be on a site like Edmunds, you would not fall for a dealer selling ANY car for over sticker except something like a Carerra GT, Enzo, etc. A Dodge? for over $50,000!!!!! :confuse:
  • I picked up my Charger SE today for 21,000 before Trade-In. It has the 250hp V6, so it's what I was looking for on gas mileage. I could've gotten it for less, but I added power seats and alloys to the package. Got it in Midwest City, Oklahoma

    Bought an R/T a few weeks ago with sound group, convenience group, sat radio. Sticker was 32,900 and paid 29,400.

    I just bought an SRT8 charger, fully fully loaded in Red (a premium color) ....sticker was $43730.00 i paid $42000.00. Im sure with gas at over $3.00 a gallon many dealers will be looking to deal on them and not ask for full sticker price or any silly premiums. All i can say is this car is absolutely amazing and turns everyones head, from the 50yr old professional in his new BMW to the kids driving their "supertuners" the SRT8 says "Cant touch this" ...

    We have two new cars now, an '05 GTO with $30K in mods (my car) and the wife's '05 Caddy CTS which GM just agreed to buy back last month (we're still waiting to close out). So, we're looking for a daily driver and like the looks of the Charger R/T and now the SRT8's. In over 40 years of buying vehicles we've never seen the tactics that these Dodge dealers use. Dealer add-on's like tinted windows for $2K (yea, two GRAND!) wheel "locks" for $1300 (can be bought for $35 anywhere) and this is the best one yet...$7500 Dealer Special. Doesn't say what makes it so "special" just the money to make the sticker over $50K! When I questioned this the salesman said, "you know that's not the REAL price, right? Then why the heck is it on the window moron? I dunno, don't think I want to deal with this company at all now. After being screwed over by Cadillac for the past year we're now naturally "gun shy" when it comes to car dealers. Anyone know of an "honest" Dodge dealer anywhere? LMK.........

    Looked at an SRT-8 yesterday
    It had packages I, II, and III
    MSRP was $43,XXX

    They offered the employee pricing plus which was 3% below invoice.
    All in all including taxes fees and a 7/100 chrysler warranty the total was $45,600 OTD

    What do you guys think?

    I think you should go for the 06 Corvette Z06, or maybe the new Mustang GT500.

    There are many many honest Dodge Dealers, however remember like any thing else you have to do a little "homework" on your own to prevent from being taken advantage of. One Dodge Dealer that I HIGHLY recommend is Woodhouse Dodge. Bill Pemberton there is an automotive expert and one of the most cordial dealers ive ever talked with. Although i did not buy my SRT8 from him because of Geography my partner did buy his 01 Viper from him and was absolutely delighted. Woodhouse is a volume Viper dealer and had several SRT8's in stock when i was looking. Tell me where you are and ill help you find a dealer. I sold my 01 Caddi Deville DTS (triple black beauty) and bought the Charger, it has been amazing since. As for the GTO which i also looked at all i can say is ...blah...while yes it is $10K less than the SRT8 it reminds me of a Grand Am and has absolutely no personality that sets it apart from the rest. All i can say is the SRT8 is "one fat whip" (as i was recently told)

    Say what you will about the new GTO.........the fact is it's the hottest (and rarest) supercar to come around in decades.....and it took the Aussies to bring it. Finest car I've owned in over 40 years of buying 'em. No, the Charger is another ho-hum attempt by Daimler to get into the upcoming muscle car wars, Challenger is their next "attempt". Until they reign in their dealer practices I'll never buy from 'em.......regardless of the merchandise. BTW, I'm in Orlando........

    Hahaha. I just wanted to say that your post gave me a good laugh.

    A hopped-up Cavalier is "hot" and the Charger and Challenger are "ho-hum." Well... its good for GM that some folks think that way ... obviously not enough, though, to warrant continued sales of the goat. Oh well.

    Let's not: Label other members as trolls

    Let's do: stick to Charger pricing.

    Thanks!

    sorry about the aside, but just wanted to share my enjoyment of the post.

    ok, kristie, i edited my previous post slightly.

    by the way, interesting bug maybe. It says he is a member since 7/09 and last logged in 7/11, but his posts only took place on 7/15 and 7/19.
