Any updates that anyone knows of? I've been bugging my Dodge dude on a regular basis and he still has no idea when this beast will be available for order. I've been chomping at the bit far too long...my fingernails are nubs, I have roadmaps for eyes and whenever I hear any mention of SRT-4 my head cocks to the side like a dog exposed to a high frequency sound. If this thing doesn't come out soon I'm gonna need professional help... :?:

My local dealer says that sometimes a new model will just show up at the dealership for no apparent reason. This just happened, I'm told, when a trailer full of Hemi trucks arrived. The dealer didn't order them...they just appeared. The dealer now has my pager number just in case an SRT-4 "appears."

DC "Customer Service" useless still...

I just love the free flow of knowledge coming from DC...NOT...

I am looking for accurate, updated info for the SRT-4. My local dealer
seems to be clueless so I am asking you. Here are my questions...
When will the SRT-4 be available for ordering through my local dealer?
Does 5 star status affect ordering availability? In order to sell the
SRT-4, does my dealer need to send someone to one of the specific SRT-4
classes being conducted in FL or CA? It's been rumoured that rollout
of this vehicle has been pushed back to late spring...is this correct?
Another rumour is that 1st year production numbers have been dropped
from 5000 to 3000. True? One comment about the site in general as
well. Many things I click on pertaining to the SRT-4 say "see your
dealer." That would be fine IF my dealer knew any of the info I seek.
Please either update this site or the dealers. Thanks!

i hate crap like that. i dont know about you guys, but when they say stuff like that, it gets me even more pissed. the car will be coming out in a couple of months and how many "secrets" are still out there? just answer the damn questions. what exactly do they have to gain by not telling us if 5 star only dealers will get them? or how many will be produced?

The dealership that I will buy from is sending more than 1 person, and it is next month sometime. If they are sending more than 1 person, they must be planning on getting more than 1 srt-4. I called DC customer service about 2 weeks ago and they said oh yeah all dealership will get them and they will be here in 1 month, hahaha yeah right.

They don't want to promise or guarantee something and then piss people and/or get sued when they're wrong. I don't blame them. Be patient, it will come. 8)

Pissed?

Pissed doesn't even begin to cover it. I have no understanding whatsoever when it comes to what makes the marketing arm of DC tick. I wish I could email a lump of coal to Ma Mopar over this whole thing...

so did you notice if they are mostly ones without side airbags, or if they have the neon seats? somebody said that they will be building the ones with side airbags first.
