You'd think local dealers would have TRIED to get close on price, but I had the same problem you did. Most wouldn't even give me a price when they heard about the deal at Koons.
I have never had a worse experience at a car dealer than Par-K in Fulton NY. It was the first CRD I looked and drove (overland, adv tech... A twin to mine except black) I asked the dealer to give me their best price while saying I would buy the truck right then if they came close to the Koons deal. I also wanted to trade my 2010 Laredo X WK with the HEMI with no liens on it.
Honestly I've never been in a more rundown car dealer than Par-K and it showed. The "manager" who was wearing a zip up hoodie and stained khakis came over to work the deal with me. Mind you. I'm 25, and he wasn't much older than I. As the deal went on I pulled out that I though he should be around 5-7% under invoice, and I didn't mind to pay a bit more (like 5% under invoice) if I could do business locally.
The "manager" said. 'Ill give you my best deal' after 15 mins of him away from the desk (which I later found out he was looking up the inventory/prices at Koons) he came back with a price of 7500 for my trade and 1000 off msrp for the CRD.
I stood up, and said no way, and I proceeded to leave. He all of a sudden started to call Koons' deal a scam and I would get down there and it would be bait and switch. So as I left he yelled across the showroom "enjoy your trip to VA for a scam"
After I went down and picked the GC up from Koons. I emailed a picture of me with jeep and a copy of the sales order for the truck to the manager at Par-K with the subject line "I got the last laugh" Koons even gave me 500 more for my trade sight unseen compared to the upstate dealer.
One of my neighbors in CNY heard about the deal I got on the GC and went down to Koons a week later and bought a wrangler unlimited with the exact specs he wanted for 6 grand under MSRP. When all the dealers up in CNY wouldn't budge off of sticker on the JK.
