There is a SRT8 at my local dealership priced at $16,694 with 45,238 miles on it and I was wondering if this was a good deal. If it is, it seems to good to be true, but CARFAX has it as only having had one owner, having 10 service records with oil changes and dealer inspections, being a personal vehicle and as having no accident reported. I was just wondering if you guys could kindly talk me out of wanting to go trade in the 300C. Seriously though, I would like to have some opinions as to whether or not this is a fair price or if there must be something wrong as it is somewhat low mileage and seems to be a pretty low price.
If it is well-maintained and in good shape, I personally think it is an easy choice to do the upgrade regardless of mileage, as vehicles get older they all will have higher miles, yours will too some day. Obviously, the choice is completely yours, but I think you are getting a lot more car for your dollar by doing, that is just my opinion
Don't make any decisions until you invest in an independent inspection. That is a MUST! Then, if all looks good ... do it! But, if and only then.
(Although you may feel as if it was a waste of money if nothing shows up ... it will be the best $100-$150 you ever spent if something catastrophic shows up ... or even something to help you negotiate the price down even further.)

It's a good price but what's the reason(s) to upgrade from your existing ride? I switched from a C to an SRT and love it but it's not for everyone. The other questions would be where you are at in terms of financially on your existing car / what would they give for a trade if you are trading the C in (vs private sale). Good luck on your decision either way.
