It's possible, I racked up the miles on mine pretty quickly.

Saw that earlier, here is a video of the dealership beating up the truck...lol I definitely would not be buying that rig. Not that it's really beating it up but should they even be goofing around with it? No.

At 30k miles already some dealer joyriding isn't a big deal to me. It's already used and a few more launches aren't gonna hurt it. When I bought my 07 used the salesman encouraged me to push it hard on the test drive. I don't find this much different than someone test driving it and fooling around.

I've put mine through hell already and it's holding up like a champ. Got 21k on mine, I'd say at least 10k is solid long highway trips across country. I've already burned all 4 of my tires down to the wear bars even with tire rotations. I drive my SRT8 like its meant to be driven

I agree. It would be different if someone took it in for service. In this video at least all they did was take off from a stop. I drive mine much harder....especially when i have a passenger that doesnt know what SRT means.

I'd say $45k would be good price for this.

Not a fan of groupthink and limitless congratulatory high-fives.
