The sales manager from my dealer called yesterday. He said the factory is no longer offering the Protection Pack on the Charger. He will be putting in a change of order today on the cars he is waiting on for the Protection Pack. Provided the factory does not strike, he hopes Dodge will build the Pro Pack order changes ahead of other pending orders due to the delays. I think he's being very optimistic, he said we might get a VIN within a week and production could be by the end of September.....


BIG QUESTION... Can my racing heart take the pressure.. I'm excited...

Car ordered:
Black R/T with R/T, sunroof, info center, Boston Acustics system w/sub and CYRIS, dealer installed rear spoiler and front air dam

If you think its bad now, wait until they call you and say its in. Then when you get there and you have to wait for the sales associate to get off the phone to get things moving. Its even worse while trying to sign the papers if you can see the car out the window, all shiny, waiting to be driven. The excitement wont go away after that even, I've had mine for about 15 hours and I am still shaking.....
But its well worth the wait!!! :wink:

Protection Group and it not being available

I'm going to be going from a truck to the charger so I was really wanting the protection package. My dealer has not mentioned anything about it not being available. I did call Chrysler cust service and the protection package is TBD (not in production at this time).
Now I'm thinking I might ask for my downpayment and pull out of the charger race.

P.S. The dealer did mentioned he got a road & track in so I came in to check it out. Wow the seats are awsome and I like the rims with the black out.

I did a test drive the dealer let me test drive by myself. I took it for a nice ride it was really sweet and confortable. Only thing like I said coming from a truck I did miss the height and being able to see around outher autos. The charger is sweet though.

Dude, I'm in the same boat as you. I can't believe how badly DC messed up on this one. For starters, why aren't side airbags standard on ALL Chargers? Come on, even Hyundais have them as standard equipment!

This whole fiasco has really soured me on DC. I still love the Charger, but I don't think I can buy one anymore simply on principle. And the thing that really pisses me off is that now I'm going to be forced to spend a lot more money because there isn't another car on the road that offers a similar combination of size, comfort, and performance for close to the Charger's price. :mad: :mad: :mad:

You're still able to build the car with the protection group option at the Dodge web site. Maybe it's just that it's still not available for the dealer to order. Noticed arifleet.com has an update from 2 weeks ago...# (CJ2) Side air bag is on hold (Charger) :(

Last I read they were still waiting on parts from suppliers.

I Agree, I love the Mopar product, I own 3 now and have had many in the past, but I will be the first to agree that Mopar makes the dumbest mistakes, probably has the worst customer service, and in many cases they are way behind the times. But Damn, they make some cool looking automobiles!

I'm really considering getting the charger with out the protection group.

I love the car. I would hate to cancell the protection group from my order then it be available the following month.

The new Jeep Comander wow the base modle looks bad lets hope the limited looks better as the base modle sucked.

I'm a dye hard Damiler product guy so I won't cry too hard. :sad:

That's what I thought in May when I ordered my RT and was told that Protection Group would be ready for June. In June they said July. In July they said August. In August they said things were figured out and would be built about the first week of September. Now it's September and it's TBD. I'm glad I took the Protection Group off my order in August. Now it's built and on a train (should have it in a little over a week). If I hadn't pulled the option off, it would still be on indefinite hold.

My guess is Hemidon's dealer is right and they're not actually offering it (at least in 2005 for the 2006 models). I read somewhere that they're going to make it standard equipment.

I just checked the Daily News on dealer connect, side air bags are on LONG TERM RESTRICTION WITH NO IMEDIATE DATE AVAILABILITY it says it will be available later this year. From what I see you wont see it for another 3 to 4 months.
