Hello everyone,,
Found a car I'm interested in and while researching it I ran across this forum and hoped I might ask a question or two of the members.

The car is a 2006 300C, SRT-8. It's got just under 25,000 miles. I can probably pick it up for $21-22,000.

Car is immaculate. From what I can tell that seems like a pretty good deal but most of the info I've run across is in regards to prices paid 6-12 months ago. It's obviously way less than a new one is selling for. Sound like a deal?


Is there anything specific to the SRT-8 and or the 2006 model year in particular that I should be aware of either good or bad???

Welcome to the forum. I don't know too much about the "proper" pricing of extremely low mileage vehicles but, to me, that sounds a little high....even with that low mileage. Just because it has low mileage doesn't mean it won't need some work done on it, if nothing else bushings,coolants, fluids/oils, etc. This would be especially true if it has been sitting for months or years on end without ever being driven. Also, be aware that many more of the 2006 SRT's were built than any other year of the early ones, so there are many more around, helping to dilute the prices. FWIW, I bought my 06 300C SRT8 from my Grandson for $6000 a little over a year ago. At the time, It had 164K on it, had a valvetrain problem and needed the front suspension completely rebuilt. Other than that it had never been touched and had mostly all original parts on it. I've put about $4000 into it and now have a very reliable, good running vehicle that I use as my daily driver. Cosmetically, it's not, by any means, flawless but, overall for its age and mileage, it's pretty clean both inside and out, plus everything still works as advertised and, IMO, is a pretty good looking "10 footer".

I am sure that others with much more knowledge on these things will chime in probably give you more relevant information. Good luck on whatever you do and, again, welcome to the forum.

EDIT: Like you, I did a little research before buying my 06, mostly to see if I could get my money back after fixing it and maybe then selling it. These prices are not quite a year and a half old, but may give you a little insight. I searched online for all 06 SRT8's and all mileages. Here's what some of the pricing, with low and high mileages looked like then:

--One with 2030 miles, asking $16.991
--One with 26138 miles, asking $15,900
--One with 44000 miles, asking $14,550

--One with 172407 miles, asking $8,488
--One with 158171 miles, asking $8,635
--One with 150514 miles, asking $8,300

Hope this helps, even though it's quite dated.

I had a 2006 300c. Great car. Put 224,000 miles on her before upgrading to a 2015. Only thing I've heard about early Hemis is that some like to drop valve seats. Not sure that applies to the 6.1L in SRT-8s. That said, unless the one you're looking at is "museum quality", even KBB only thinks it's worth $12,000 and that's essentially retail.

Low mileage isn't a guarantee of anything, except overpricing. I wouldn't even look twice at that car.
