Wow, pre-qualified, ready to pull the trigger on $50K plus vehicle and both dealers I'm "working" with don't have the time of day for me. Times sure have changed since I last bought a vehicle...! Seriously though, really astonished at the lack of communication. Are there "key" "magical" words that salespeople respond to...?

"Goodbye", or "No thanks, I'm looking for a dealer that wants my business"...be brutally honest with them and be prepared to walk away. Dealing with the Sales Mgr directly works....sometimes.

Walking out the door with parting words of, "call me when you are ready to do business" sometimes works. Otherwise find another dealer.

Thanks for all the replies.

Hmmm, I'm not sure about this. Maybe I'm phrasing it incorrectly. I have approval from my credit union - I.e. they have already qualified me to purchase the JGC that I want at 100%. All I have to do is give them the paperwork and it is done.

Anyways, kinda sad.

You have the power with the preapproval,use it wisely and make a dealer EARN your business. Find another dealer and don't let them know you're approved already until you find the car you like exactly, next agree upon numbers and then you can start discussing financing. If the dealer finds you another bank that beats your credit unions rate..that's even better.

Challenger has a good point. As far as the dealer is concerned you are a "cash" buyer and you have a budget. The absolute minimum you should be getting is 1% under invoice. If the dealer doesn't want to start the conversation on a realistic basis, use Excursion's line on your way out the door.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Any insight on what is going on with ORA II pricing on diesel Limited models? The invoice info in post 1 and the Jeep web site show the MSRP at $2,495, which is the same as a dealer quote I received in mid-August. However, this month I see the dealer quotes show the MSRP is $1,795 which is the same as the Pentastar price. Did Jeep lower the price (even though the web site isn't changed)?

Ontario Federation of Agriculture and FARM - Price Relief

Just thought to advise all members here that Chrysler Canada has put a HUGE discount program into place for OFA and other Farm organization members. In some cases in excess of 10% MSRP...
