Dodge Challenger Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • frankygfrankyg Posts: 32
    Anyone get a 2009 R/T for invoice? My local dealer, in NY, has an 09 R/T w/leather, auto 28J pkg. Sound Group II, R/T hood to fender stripe and 20" wheel pkg. for 34,015 MSRP. Am I nuts to think that I can get this car for it's 31,854 invoice price? A dealer 70 miles from me had a similiar R/T, blue w/6spd that they sold for $32,996, $1,479 under MSRP
  • Anyone lease a Challenger?
    I was looking at an 09 RT 27J package, electronic convenience group, 6speed manual trans, sun roof and 20's. it stickered for $37,035. The internet manager offered $33,502 and another 2 grand on top of that if I completed the deal before month’s end. Since I am not buying my next car I inquired into lease options. This is what they came back with.

    Purchase price: $31502
    Money Factor: .00257
    36month Residual: 17406
    Miles: 12k yr
    Due at signing: 1000
    Monthly payment: 490-570 (I was fuzzy on this range)

    I didn’t have time to sit around and ask a bunch of questions because lunch was about over. I told him I would do some more research and get back with him.

    So what do you think? To me that payment looks more like a buy then a lease.

    The EP ++ program on R/T's isn't so bad. The EP price would be around $33331 minus $1,000 if you finance through Chrysler. You may also be eligible for 0% for 48 months too.
  • Got Employee Pricing Program, $1000 Chrysler discount, 0% for 48 months. 16K on trade in, $329 per month.

    Black/Black Hemi R/T 6 speed leather Trak Pak 20" wheels, stereo upgrade. MSRP 35K

    It is absolutely awesome. I traded an 03 cobra and the Challenger is ten times the car.

    Post from July, 08: "Yes, wait until next summer when you can get one with $3500 cash back, 0 % financing plus $3.99 Gas card (gas will be $5 this time next year, if not sooner)."
    Oops! Hard to tell the future, isn't it?

    I am envious. :shades: I'm sure you are going to enjoy this one. (I'm crazy about my 300C) What made you go to Dodge rather than a new Mustang?
  • Hey folks, looking to buy an SRT8/6 speed this spring. Would
    Like to know where the largest Dodge dealer is near the Ny/Nj area.
    Also, would like to hear of recent buying experiences from people
    In the same area. Rock on!
  • I decided to buy my challenger last november. the markets were crashing and i lost over $25,000.00 in my 401k plan. i was pissed i had nothing to show for the lost money, so i decided to pull out about 30 grand and go shopping. i went to melloy dodge in albuquerque nm and decided to order one with the options i wanted. i wanted the six speed tranny(only way to drive a muscle car), they had an orange one loaded with all the bells and whistles. well they wanted $41,000.00($5,000.00 market adj). long story short. i bought it for $38,000.00. i love this car, it puts the fun in driving, and the young chicks always tell me they love the car. if i was only 30 yrs. younger. don't wait, do whatever you have to do to buy it. or you never will. when the challenger came out in 1970 was in vietnam and missed it. when it was offered again, i knew i would buy one.
  • i bought my 09 r/t in november with the 5.7 and six speed tranny. the owners manual says to use premium grade.
  • I've seen that in the manual as well. I haven't heard how it does on 89 or 87.
    Does anyone else know about that?

    I've been looking for deals on Challengers and the best I've found was $1500 off of MSRP on a base SE with sunroof.

    Has anyone else done better? What's the average for this super car?
    I can't believe how tough it is to get a Challenger.

    I've read differing opinions, but I think it's 89 octane in the R/T auto and 91 octane in the R/T manual. But many have posted the 87 works fine in either, not on this forum but on another one. If anyone is interested in the link, shoot me an email, the addy is in my public profile.

    And here's the information quoted from the owner's manual.

    The 3.5L and 5.7L engines (with automatic transmission) are designed to meet all emissions regulations and provide satisfactory fuel economy and performance when using high-quality unleaded gasoline having an octane range of 87 to 89. The manufacturer recommends the use of 89 octane for optimum performance. The use of premium gasoline is not recommended, as it will not provide any benefit over regular gasoline in these engines.

    I hope you put some money away for the taxes that you'll have to pay on the early withdrawal from your retirement account. And good luck with the car!
  • Congrats on getting the car you want. Wouldn't it be cool if you had bought a 1970 and kept it all these years?

    Re: The young chicks. I had a '97 Trans Am convertible in red with the WS 6 package and an aftermarket exhaust. It seems the engine sound makes their ovaries vibrate and the poor things are defenseless! :)

    Anyone have an update on production of 2010 Challengers?
  • Guys i have been looking at SE model with that popular package that brings the price to $26,200. I was wondering if anyone in here has bough a Challenger in last 3-4 months and what did you end up paying.

    I have been doing some research and it seems like there's almost 100 days supply of these cars out there, so i am sure you can get it at $1K below MSRP, but that would still make it too expensive for me. Can someone shed a light on the current prices charged.

    P.S. Sat it it yesterday, interior is not bad, back seat is very roomy, 3 people can seat easily. I am short, 5'5' but i felt like there was enough room in there to be pretty comfortable.

    If you bought a new Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep or Fiat "special edition" model in the past year or so - or if you are a dealer who sold one - a reporter would love to hear about it. Please email no later than Wednesday, October 10, 2012 with your daytime phone number and a brief description of the car and your experience with it.
