Tough call. The dealers up here don't get many in. I understand from a quick scan of the board that more gears and a remote chance of a supercharger are in store for the 2014's? So may be worth the wait indeed.
I phoned on a dealership last night and the salesman alerted me that there was an offer pending on one that just came in yesterday, but it likely would not be accepted as it was only 2k over msrp. So if they are still selling for 72-74k then I will be waiting for quite a while.
Thanks for the intel.
I picked mine up as a new/used over in Ontario. The owner of the dealership was using it for his vehicle. So I figured it was well cared for. I picked it up with almost 10,000 Kms on it. I unfortunately had the lovely 13% Ontario tax on it which brought me up to just over 60k out the door. I've been very pleased with it so far.
Having pit almost 8,000 Kms on it in about a month, I've only run into one problem, and that's the front bumper skin peeling a bit. That is half my fault and half the shitty clips in the bumper. I purposely drove into deeper snow to see how the snow mode worked on the truck and was very pleased. The bumper however was not.
I owned a BMW before this, and am not finding it a hard change, the build quality isn't far off, it definitely is American though, and that's not a bad thing.
I built up a 400 wheel horsepower BMW 135 with all M3 suspension tuning, and with all honesty,the stock srt8 doesn't feel far off from the handling, yes it pushes a bit more on on-ramps, but it's also 1800lbs heavier, so no surprise. The stability control seems a bit more dim witted, but that might be the AWD making those differences.
I am pleased with the truck, I haven't had buyers remorse.
Buying a 2012 scared me a bit as its first year production, but all service bulletins have already been done and such, so I'm not having any early problems others may have experienced.
There is a chance I will be moving to your part of Canada in the next couple months, and if I do, and you still haven't made a move on a different car yet, I'd be happy to let you take mine for a rip. (time will tell what happens, flying to Vancouver Monday to check a few things out before any commitments are made)
Every time I take a passenger they are always pleasantly surprised by the new build quality dodge has put into their vehicles, "I can't believe this is a dodge!" "Wow, so much leather", "great seats!" And etc.
Anyways, hope I was a bit helpful. I feel confident in the truck, but I also have a dealer with a really good reputation near by, so that helps.
Good luck, and keep us up to date!
