Dodge to Buyers: Beware of Dishonest Hellcat Dealers
There’s no doubt the Dodge Challenger Hellcat and Charger Hellcat are the brand’s most coveted vehicles right now. But a warning has been issued that some dealers are being dishonest and taking deposits for Hellcats they will never sell.Okay, part of the reason for posting this was a transparent need to talk about the Dodge Challenger/Charger Hellcat again. That's the SEVEN HUNDRED horsepower coupe/sedan pair from Mopar:
And the most surprising thing? The warning comes straight from Dodge. That’s right, Dodge is coming down on its own dealerships for taking deposits for cars they may never sell.
I could get myself into a LOT of trouble with either of those...
I don't quite know what to make of this, though. Unless there's some dealership or dealerships out there taking more orders than there are ever cars to be built, why not get the deposit down? For the asking price - under $65K - that's a hell of a lot of car. There's not a lot of cars costing two or three times that price that can keep up with it, especially not full-size sedans.
I do have to admit, the regular Challenger R/T is very appealing...
That is all.
