Re: Employee Pricing Plan - Canada
The price difference is frustrating and no one I talk to can give me an answer. I believe that it is Chrysler Canada setting the prices and the dealers just follow it.
Not only are vehicle prices way more expensive, the parts are also. I bought mud flaps at a US dealer for $39 (list price.) I called a few dealers in Ottawa and asked the price on the same flaps and the price was $67 - they offered to lower the price a bit, but when I told them the US price, they said that they couldn't even buy them from Chrysler at that price! I suggested that they buy them directly from a US dealer.
Not only is there the huge price difference, if you buy a US vehicle and register it in Canada - there goes your warranty! Considering the cost of parts and labor here, I got the 7 year $0 deductible ($4,330 - list.) I did not pay near that - anyone want to know where I got it send me a PM.
I bought a Laredo X with towing and Nav (list for $44,120) for $40,157 (not including freight, AC tax and HST) It came out to about 8.9% below the vehicle list.
