2008 SRT8 at a local dealer, wondering what i should pay. I am really dreading going, the whole dealer game sucks. Its silver with 39k miles, doesn't have NAV/DVD. They are asking 31k. Thanks.

I bought mine a 08 with 29k and option group 1 only and I paid 38,999.00. 31k sounds like a fair price you could only maybe talk them to 30 if ur a really good negotiator.

Does it have factory HID headlights? If not, offer $26-$27K.

Yikes, I paid $42,000 for my 08 brand new fully loaded with NAV/DVD and HID back in 08.

That price does sound fair for a dealer. But without DVD/Nav, i'd pass it up and move on unless you can get a really good deal. I'm thinking the most one should may would be $28k, maybe $29 if it is in good shape.

I bought my '08 new in Feb. 09, $35k. Dealership was closing down in a few months.

Went and drove it, doesn't have HIDS. Tailgate is a little scratched up and there is a little curb rash on two of the wheels. I offered him 27k and he couldn't do it but he is going to call me in a couple days to see if he can work something out. What do you think about the Zurich comprehensive warranty, is it worth it?

They probably won't budge much in the price. They are still really popular and they know they can get what they are asking. I don't see no HID's dropping the price 4 or 5 grand. You can get all those separate anyway for like a grand.

Yea sounds fair considering what you paid:eek: but 31k is too much considering no HIDS and nav/dvd. Shouldnt be over 30ktops!!! Like Johnny said 28-29 is where it should be.

Look on autotrader for that price or a few K more and you will find 09-10s with around that mileage.

I just got an email from him, and he asked if it was 27k + TTL. I think he thought I meant 27K OTD. I will do the 27k+TTL. They did say fees. I am not too sure what they are going to try to hit me with when they say fees. Anyone know what I should be looking at as for as normal fees? I know the tax should be 6%.

Also, is that warranty good? I am thinking of just getting the warranty on the powertrain and forgetting the full warranty. They showed me the price of 1600 for 2 years and 20k miles.

You guys are a great help.

Don't buy any 3rd party warranty as they are worthless. I had one and got rid of it and bought a Max care warranty from Chrysler. I say 29 to 31k is what that jeep is about worth. I have a 2008 and bought it loaded with everything except the kicker audio and paid 39k out the door with only 6200 miles.

They came back with 28800 and comes out to be 31k OTD. The only thing I don't like is the 299 processing fee. Is that normal?

I say 28800 is fine... It sounds like a documentation fee of some sort.. I just eat the cost since they already lowered the price on the Jeep...

I got them to waive the fee and the price a tad. After all said and done, its 30500 OTD. I think its a decent deal, 1 owner srt 8.

from every bit of research and looking i did before i pulled the trigger, you can find one with nav/dvd/hid's and spend what you are gonna on this rig, esp if the tailgate is scratched with some curb rash, im not sayin its a terrible deal, but you can find better if you take a little time

I can't believe how well these things are still holding value!
In 08 I paid 25k for a fully loaded, one owner nearly perfect, Steel Blue 07 with some really nice mods.

I ended up buying this one. 99% of the scratch buffed out. I did consider buying others but nothing was anywhere close to where I live. I found a few online but then I would have to ship it and buy it without checking it out first. Got it for 28200.
