Update and Pictures of my SRT-4 Purchase

Well, I left work early on Friday to sign the final paperwork and take my 04 blue SRT-4 home. I got there and it was sitting there waiting for me. Dealer started to transfer tags and I did a final walk around of the car. I got up close to the drivers door and got that sinking feeling in the pit of my gut. I noticed some very deep scratch marks and saw that they were all down the side of the door in several areas. Well, the marks turned out to be a very poor sanding and paint refinishing job probably done by a MAACO shop. The job was absolutely horrible and I could see the overspray on the inside of the door. Carfax didn't report any vehicle damage and restoration. I'm guessing that the car was in a minor fender-bender. Well, I turned to my wife and she agreed that there was no way we were doing a higher car note for something that was damaged and maybe more. So, disappointed, I walked away.

Well, I knew the dealer up the road that I had purchased a new Pathfinder from a few years ago had an 05 Red SRT-4 with 20+K miles less. They also wanted almost brand new SRT-4 prices. Being bummed, I stopped in with my wife and decided to see what she thought. She loved the red 05 even more. It was much cleaner, had the factory Kicker stereo option/6 disc player, no curb rashed rims, and it also had the Viper inspired seats like the blue 04 did. Mileage was 8,010 and carried the balance of the factory warranty. The blue 04 did too but would have been up in under 9k miles. So, I talked to the dealer and got the price down a little. Yeah, I know that the dealer still came out on top but I couldn't see this car going to some young ricer that would just rag it out and abuse it. Plus, it had 4 doors for my family.

Anyway, 4 hours later, I walked away with a basically brand new 05 SRT-4 with the works! Sure, I paid 2 grand more but got a much nicer and newer car. Had it not worked out, I would have been looking to buy a new Civic Si, lol.

Well, I've only put 12 miles on it as its been raining the last two days but I'm hoping that the weather clears up soon. It is my DD and will continue to be just as my SVTF was. Actually, the mustang is now up for sale and I'll be posting pictures and details soon.

Here's some pics for everyone of the 05 SRT-4. Let me know what you think and BTW, the cleaning job of the car is not as good as what I will get it to look like, lol.

Well, I guess my digital pics are too large because I get them to upload but they don't show up. Argh! I'm working on it.
