Dealer Inventory - web

Anyone know what the time frame from when a car is purchased and when it is removed from the dealer inventory on the website(s)?

Ask for two reasons, one my car is in transit from another dealer and for some reason I feel better if it came out of inventory. Two i want to see if the dealer who screwed around with me telling me he had 2 other buyers lined up for the car really did have 2 or if he was jacking with me.

thanks

Re: Dealer Inventory - web

Sounds like you are having fun!
#1 I do not think it matters if it is an in transit dealer trade (between dealers) or you are trying to buy an in transit Jeep that's yet to come in from the factory to a dealer. If you have a signed sales agreement with the VIN, equipment etc. and money down its a locked deal.
#2 The dealer could also be trying to get a higher price by telling you others are interested in the Jeep. The only way to stop this game is to put your offer forward for the Jeep and walk away if you can't agree on price. If you have seen the car/test drove it and liked it I would have no issue for myself on locking in an in transit Jeep.

The issue I have had was the Jeep equipped the way I wanted was not out there for the most part. What was out there the other dealers did not want to trade my dealer. I am talking 100+ miles around.
The deals were great if you could find the Jeep.
I landed up factory ordering (6 weeks) because of lack of available supply.
Not as good a price as getting it from inventory but still good.

From my experience the car is removed from the web when they have money down and/or a signed contract. My only advice is call and work a deal on the phone. If its sold the dealer will tell you. Know what you are willing to pay before hand. Two buyers lined up? Who has put the cash down?
From what I have seen there must be huge $$ incentives for the dealers.

No I have the paperwork signed with my local dealer. I live in Atlanta, and he found the exact car I wanted in Troy Michigan. The dealer there was willing to trade the trail hawk for a grand cherokee my dealer had. I just assumed it would drop off the MI dealer's inventory when it was released to my dealer. If all goes as plan it should be in my hand tomorrow.

The second dealer that had one and was being an A$$ is the other one I am watching to see if he really did sell it. It's a bit of Schadenfreude on my part if he did not sell it and was trying to force my hand.

Sounds like your local dealer went above and beyond the call of duty for you.
Good dealer!

Re: Dealer Inventory - web

Two things cause the inventory to drop or change:

1. Vehicle is sold and a NVDR (New Vehicle Delivery Report) is filed by the dealer
2. Vehicle is formally traded and the paperwork is filed noting the transfer.

Both take 24-72 hours after the paperwork is done to filter through the various systems and onto the website.

Guess no need to follow the dealer anymore. She's all mine now.

Sweet. I like that color.

What happened to that inventory oversupply just a month or so ago?
Are these things moving that fast, or was the inventory mainly models
nobody wanted to buy?

I don't see very many of these on the three dealer lots I pass by every now and then, even fewer than the Grands...

From hunting around it seems like all dealers got 1 maybe 2 trail hawks. A lot more limited versions. I know searching nationwide I only found a total of 6 in crystal granite with all the options I wanted (everything)

Re: Dealer Inventory - web

Looks great! I'm jealous. Love those red hooks. The color is growing on me.
Had to compromise with my other half and get the Limited.
Now all I have to do is figure out if I can put the red tow hooks on it.

You are correct in that there were not many Trail Hawks. I also could not find many optioned up Limiteds. Lots of FWD and I4's on the initial shot it seemed.
That's why I had to Factory order it in early November to get what I wanted the way I wanted.
Have fun and good luck with that great looking Trail Hawk!
