Since we're close to the model year what do you think the going rate is for the SRT-10? Could someone find one under MSRP? or should I wait to end of year?

Your thoughts!

IMO, there doesn't seem to be a 'going rate'. It sounds as if alot of dealers are putting a mark-up on them, while many here purchased theirs for sticker, or less. Ya just gotta shop around. :confused:

Sounds right! it seems the "gotta have one" people already have it and others might be waiting around for the price to drop lower. ;)

Call up Bill Pemberton at Woodhouse. He seems to be in the know. I got mine at a very fair price and shipped it all the way here to Maui.

By the way, this is the end of the year. Production stopped in June or early July.

MSRP on my black SRT-10 was $46,485.

I paid $44,400 with no trade-in in the middle of July.

Mine was $1,000 off sticker and the truck build date was July 9th. City/suburban areas may still be asking over sticker. Check Ebay...about 10 listed there in various parts of the country...that's where I found mine.

There are 3 silver and 3 black SRT's in the Des Moines area. All are advertised as "let's deal!" If you are interested I'll give you a name to contact. They advertise at $5k over MSRP but they will probably go for $1k over invoice right now. :cool:

Wait till the 05's come out, then you will get a great deal on any leftover 04's!!

Yeah true, but if their are any left overs is most likely form a dealer that had an outrageous mark up.. Prick's, man I hate that!

You're just going to have to shop around...The dealrs are pretty firm on their prices...I did get mine at a fair price but that is only cuz before i bought my 2004 Hemi in Nov of 2003, i had emailed and talked to several dealers about getting an srt but they wanted too much...so i got the hemi...then i waited like 9 months and tried again and the dealr i talked to said to come down and we'll talk. so we talked and I just got my truck last tuesday...waited for almost a month to get it too!

good luck.

Start at Invoice Price, work up from there.

I paid invoice price (dealer cost) for my SRT-10 on 8/28/04. I managed to locate the truck, negotiate for it, and buy it, all in about a 1 hour time period on a Saturday afternoon.

I was searching for a black one, and found 6 black trucks within a 150 mile radius of my home by using the Dealer Locator and Inventory Search on the Dodge website. Within 30 minutes I had called all the dealers and found 2 willing to sell at invoice. (The other 4 ranged from $2000.00 off sticker to full sticker price.) All the trucks were located in the greater Memphis, TN area market.

Of the 2 dealers willing to sell at invoice, one had a "base" model SRT-10, and the other dealer had 2 that were equipped identically with the 3 options (side curtain air bags, Nav. Radio, and factory bedliner). The dealer with the 2 "fully equipped" trucks even offered to load the truck on their hauler and deliver it to me at work the following business day.

I opted for one of the "fully equipped" trucks, and called the dealer back to let him know I accepted his invoice offer. His hauler arrived at my business Monday afternoon and they unloaded the truck in the parking lot. He had also filled the tank with gas, which was another nice gesture.

He also brought all the paperwork for me to sign, which saved me the 150 mile trip to his dealership. I handed him a check, he handed me the keys, and we both agreed it was one of the easiest deals we'd ever done.

I guess the point is that there are deals to be had out there, if you approach the whole thing in a business-like fashion. I never stepped foot in the dealership, never took a little test spin, didn't drive by every other day to oogle, didn't call 10 times, and didn't revisit twice to haggle.

I called each dealer and asked for their rock bottom price, no trade. Told each up front I was looking to pay invoice, and if they couldn't do that, then give me their best price.

Most importantly, I made it clear "I WILL be buying today if I can find one at my terms". Nobody wants to waste their time, so let them know you're drop-dead serious. Just be prepared to back it up with cash (or pre-approved financing) if they "call your bluff" and meet your terms.

If I can find 2 dealers in 30 minutes of phone calling, I'd lay good odds on their being a whole lot of other dealers out there willing to do the same.

Good luck,

--Barry

Basically did the same thing as Barry only I found mine located fairly close to me via Ebay. General manager of Kayser Dodge drove it to my house (he was coming this way for a family reunion) and he walked with a cashier check. These dealers are motivated on moving vehicles NOW not in 3 weeks!
