It's a Neeewwwwww Caaaaarrrrrrrrrr
« on: February 15, 2013, 07:35:24 PM »



Wife and I have been kicking this around for a few months.  We decided to pull the trigger on a new Chrysler 200 Limited.  We are trading in a 2008 Charger Hemi RT with 21,000 miles on it.

It's is a sleeper for sure.  But it is an USA answer to the Baby Benz.  No recalls, no apparent problems with the model.  That's a good sign

After I clean the snow up, we'll go up and pick it up


This is the car we are getting.  But I am paying $21,450 for it.  Not the advertised $24,000 as shown.  That V6 is something else too.  Wow.

I hate buying cars with my wife.  It took her 4 hours to decide on a color.  Hey!  It's her car!

Nice car Steve. Since my 69 Monaco wagon got rear ended I've had a Chrysler 200 rental. I've had it since New Years eve since Geico is jerking me aroud but that'e a whole 'nother story. It's a very nice driving car. My rental has the 4 banger in it so it's kind off a pig but I bet yours with the V6 gets up and goes. Congratulations!

They gave us 18,500 for the Charger Bob.  It was higher than normal because it only had 21,000 miles and was serviced by them from the beginning

So effectively you have a brandnew car for a few hundred bucks? Not a bad deal

Those 200s are nice!  My Daughter has a '11 200 S - black on black, V6, 6-speed auto trans.  It kicks ass, I must say!  And, she gets 31 on the highway which is what Frances gets in her '09 Sebring with the 4.  Have fun Stevo!

If this had been one year later I would be in a position to buy your Charger from you.  That's the way it goes sometimes...

The charger was fast and all, but it was a pig.  At the rate gas is going. . .  .

Yeah, that is a heck of a deal, and the color is pretty nice for a queen, too! That is a bummer about the RT and all, less than half the price in five years. It almost always seems to take 30 years before they are worth what they cost, kind of hard to keep them around that long.
