Hey guys,

I'm currently in the market for a SRT8. PRICE is an issue. I'm looking to spend around 22k. Something with decent mileage is wanted. If anyone is feeling generous let me know. I'm located in St. Louis, Missouri.

Thanks
Derek

Hahaha, I called that same dealership and they told me the same thing. They were like "The $20k price is correct, but the milage isn't 38k its 138k. We were missing a 1".

I was like "Oh, now I see why you put that disclaimer at the bottom saying you're not responsible for misinformation about price or milage."

They assured me they weren't playing games. Riiiiiight.

I would have beat you to that Jeep ;-)

Ya I called about that same one 4 weeks ago @ Frankfort Autohaus in IL . Their listing on AT and even on their Website claim 38k but after calling twice they confirmed that it was ohh 100k off of what they claimed.

-Good luck :bigthumb:

I purchased a one owner out of Dallas with 60,000 miles for $21500 sight unseen. Ended up having a hole in the drivers side carpet, repainted fender, hood and roof. Lots of dents and a big crease in the door. Thought I had a deal as the woman owner described the car as prestine. Dumped it to a dealer and purchased Jebs bull run SRT8. Jebs was more money but well woth it.

hi, my opinion... LOL

honestly with these Jeeps....it takes "usually" special people to get them.
ie car nuts..... people that care about style appearance etc. ...and because they
are so damn expensive and partially impractical... the lucky ones of us that have these
SPECIAL Jeeps USUALLY... take real good care of them. I personally have 87k miles
and the crap has been run out of it daily... BUT.... I have always done the service on
everything over and above and all synthetic fluids, changed more than needed etc....
the Jeep doesn't drip a bit of anything, burn anything, smoke at all...nothing....perfect.
So, if you can verify the history of a vehicle as far as no bad crash damage, look over the
whole thing, check for cleanliness everywhere.... see service records, and do your homework.

I wouldn't be too scared to by one with 65k-100k miles on it, and you will probably
have a hard time getting a LOW mileage, super nice one for less than $23k.
...partly because in my opinion, the new 12s are so rediculously priced $60k+...it
causes the 1st gens to retain, and actually enhances their value slightly.

so goodluck, and don't let 50-110k or so miles deter you from a good clean cheaper Jeep find.

YOU WILL LOVE BEING PART OF THE BORTHERHOOD OF THE SRT8 JEEP! :)

thanks guys for the help. Seeing a Jeep with higher mileage tends to steer me away but now knowing they are really good cars, a higher mileage one seems quite reasonable. And since I have a certain price ceiling its good to know I can still find one if i look around. Thanks again guys any help is appreciated!
