It got you better breaks too? I didn't even know Limited models had the option of a V6 until I read this post. Do the bigger breaks only apply to the 200S and 200C models?If it had a V6, I'd say it's a good deal. I4 Limiteds, used, have been sold for around $10k at this point.
FCA never really touted that $2,000 V6 upgrade got you way more than $2k in upgrades. Stronger transmission and 300-sized brakes.
We just purchased ours 3 weeks ago. LOVE IT.
I got a great deal too.

Congratulations on your new ride. You've apparently concluded, as most of us would agree, that this is car represents a lot of value for the price. I concur on the adaptive cruise control, definitely reduces fatigue on a long drive - I totally miss it when driving another vehicle - and Safety Tec package in general, several well engineered features for the price.I handed down my '15 Dart to my son as a College graduation gift and got my new 2016 200C Platinum on June 16th of this year. The car sat on the dealer's lot for about 13 months. Optioned with V6, Platinum Package 26P, Safety/Tec, Premium Group, Panoramic Sunroof and Uconnect 8.4 Nav. MSRP of $36,460. Negotiated price of car to over $10,000 off at $26,280. After taxes and fees, out-the-door total came to $29,501. Love the car and love the features. The Adaptive Cruise Control is amazing - drove over 400 miles on the freeway from Los Angeles to San Francisco and only applied the brakes once. The car handled deceleration and acceleration perfectly - what an easy drive.
Good Man. At least you raised your concern and they charged it for you. The "smart" chargers in use today can reverse sulfation to at least some extent. So hopefully they used a modern charger for a sufficient length of time. After my battery failed, before they would replace it under warranty, they had to do a complete charge and test process on their machine, which took several hours. So it wasn't just a matter of jump-starting the car, taking it in and having them replace the battery. I had to leave it with them overnight. So add to the inconvenience of not starting, two trips to the dealer and over a day without the vehicle.Thanx for the heads-up regarding the battery. I had a similar concern and asked the dealer to replace it prior to delivery. They preferred to charge it for an hour. I had the battery tested this afternoon and it "passed" putting out 730 CCA but I will keep an eye on it. I will make a note to have it tested prior to the expiration of the 36-mos. warranty. As far as software updates, last week I got the Uconnect over-the-air update notice on the nav screen and performed that at the time. I will search for any TSB's involving the car itself but everything is fine at this end. Still amazed with the adaptive cruise control - what a great feature!
And this was via Carvana? They were pretty easy to deal with? I think we all bought the normal way, but if they are pretty hassle-free, your experience might help a lot of us buy a car in the future... maybe even a 2nd 200 or something else in the family.I got my 2015 200S AWD with 19" wheels last week for $16k, $17.2 after tax & lic. 32k miles. I'm really happy with it so far.
Was the 12k with warranties?I got my 2015 200C last August, 2017, with heated leather, 51,000 miles for $12k. I am very happy with it. It does have crappy tires (17" but terrible in snow) so I drive my 2011 Ram sport mostly these days (note where I live) ??
I am amazed how unpopular these cars are for some reason. A dealer in Syracuse still has about 5 2016's on their lot, new! And a dealer not far from here has a new 2015 for sale!
i put Lloyd all weather mats in (very nice, custom fit, $65 from autoanything), I'd love to upgrade to the 8.4 uconnect but I'm hesitant to commit, not being the brightest when it comes to such things!
