This seems to be a pretty decent deal, actually.
For example, a new '09 R/T with protection group stickers for $34,100.00 Taking into consideration the current incentives, it would be possible to get the '09 for $28,600. That equates to a roughly 16% discount.
The '08 you are looking at is brand new. The dealer is taking $9,237 off, which equates to a 22% discount. You are receiving a higher discount than you would get for a comparably equipped '09. Chrysler does not provide the dealer with any additional incentives to sell the '08. Additionally, it doesn't matter what the price is on used '08s. The car is new and never titled. As with any car, it doesn't become used until the car is registered and titled to the first owner.
There reaches a point where sometimes it does not make financial sense to buy a leftover. The manufacturers stop incentives on the outgoing model year and start discounting the current models. When that happens, the dealers are stuck with the car and will try to get as much as they can for it. If you don't care that it is an '08 and that it will depreciate substantially as soon as you sign the papers, you will be getting a highly optioned new car at a great price. If you are paying cash, and plan to keep the car for several years, it is an even better deal.
If you are financing the car, and don't intend to keep it more than 3-4 years, you will never be able to beat the depreciation unless you put at least 30% down.
Is this R/T an AWD or Daytona?

Has anyone bought a 2011 Charger? What sorts of deals are out there? With gas so expensive, I would think that they may be having a tough time selling them. We have a 06 Magnum RT we'll be replacing & thinking about the Charger. Any suggestions?

I bought a 2011 R/T w/cloth interior, Nav Pkg w/back up camera, Sunroof and the Wheels and Tunes pkg (20" chrome clad and 506 watt Alpine 10 speakers). I paid $32K for it. This was two months ago. I have no regrets. The Hemi get 25 to 26 mpg Highway and with me just running back a forth to work during the week I'm averaging 19 to 21 mixed.

Just purchased a black 2011 Dodge Charger R/T Max last week. The vehicle is loaded, sunroof, navi, satellite radio, back up camera, leather seats, 20 inch wheels, and etc. I have about 300 miles on it now. I live in the Houston, TX area. Last week two Dodge dealer in the area were giving $6,000 off on all 2011's Dodge Charger Model in the Sunday paper. One dealer did not honor their ad price. Took my business to another dealer and was in & out in 1.5 hr with a new car. This is my first vehicle that I spent $30k plus on. I am very happy with the purchase.
Savings- $6,000 off
Total- $31,170 plus ttl
You tell me if this is a good deal?

If you bought a new Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep or Fiat "special edition" model in the past year or so - or if you are a dealer who sold one - a reporter would love to hear about it. Please email PRedmunds.com no later than Wednesday, October 10, 2012 with your daytime phone number and a brief description of the car and your experience with it.
