I'll tell you what, if you see one on the lot buy it regardless of color. It seems like these cars will be hard to come by. Or, if you can mentally do it, wait until next year when they increase production. I assume they will since most cars are already reserved. This reminds me of the PT Cruiser situation three years ago. People were putting money down and paying high mark-ups for these cars without even driving them. I would see some in the paper for about $28K and with only 5000 miles on it. I know that the dealers aren't supposed to be charging more than $19,999 but that doesn't mean you won't get into a bidding war with another customer!!! I would wait just one year until the car has had some consumer time logged onto it. There will always be little bugs and quirks with a new model and a new motor / trans combo.

If you put money down and get a signed contract with the price, you are set. I'm paying MSRP for one. You don't need to worry about getting into a bidding war. I can drive it once it comes in and if I don't like it, I get my money back. It is not really a big deal - although I put money down on one in June and I'm #2 on the list.

"You mean the Neon????Um.... Those won't be available until July or August 2003!"

One of the sales guys came to me and said, "Why get a Neon if you could have this: a Stratus Coupe!?!?" I said... "A Neon???? Hahahaha! You're kidding, right?"

Okay, I'm not sure if they are even 5-stars. I think not.

:lol:

I heard July or August from one dealer. It turns out that even though it was a 5 star dealer, they are out of the loop. I was told that the dealerships are broken down into A-E Classes with E being the worst. I'm not sure if there is any truth to this, but I'd talk to more than one dealer about the SRT 4 before settling for misinformation.

Down payment

I put $500 down this morning at a 5 star dealership. My high school buddy who is my salesman told me that I'll get my car along with 3 other people who are getting theirs, in May. The dealership said they're only getting one SRT of each color (4 total that's it). I'm sure of this because the salesman that sits in the office next to my buddy was working at the Auto Show here in Detroit this Sat when I sat in it (oooh the seats). So that's it for Michigan, I got the last SRT at my dealership. Whew!

Availability

Noone at the dealer I am ordering my SRT from said anything about availibility issues. If the salesman has screwed me by not reserving me one I'll be exceptionally pissed. My question is how can they "guarentee" one when there not even showing anything on their computers yet?
