There may be a few cars excluded, like the STR8, one of the performance Darts, Viper.

Yup they mentioned those exclusions. Just wanted to be sure the CRD wasn't on that list and it wasn't

Re: joining tread lightly to get Chrysler Affiliate discount

If I'm ordering a vehicle so I assume I should get it in writing on the sales contract that the deal is Chrysler Affiliate pricing? I know the invoice clearly shows the CA pricing but on a factory order an I correct that there is no invoice when you first make an order?

I just don't want the dealer to play any games later when GC comes so I want to have something on CA pricing in writing.

Re: joining tread lightly to get Chrysler Affiliate discount

There will be an invoice once the vehicle is produced. You just need your control number to get that pricing...as long as your dealer is participating in the program.

So there's that.
I called the program and spoke to someone yesterday. They said there is the $75 fee but the dealer can still charge doc fees in accordance with the state regulations (no cap for me in NJ). To clarify, she said the fees that are not allowed to charge for are: dealer prep fees, delivery fees, service fees, etc. She specifically said the doc fee can still be charged.

Re: joining tread lightly to get Chrysler Affiliate discount

when ordering, always check 2 dealers. I had what I thought was a great deal at one dealer but checked with another just to make sure and saved $1000 between trade and price of ordered Summit!

Re: joining tread lightly to get Chrysler Affiliate discount

I live in Northern Sonoma County, CA, about 90 minutes north of San Francisco. I did my test drives and read extensively both here and KBB, Edmunds, etc. After reading about it here, I joined Tread Lightly and then went shopping by email. I think I sent 5 or 6 emails, indicating I wanted a 2014 Jeep Overland V8, with options: Adv. Tech Grp (ADG), Mopar Chrome (AEE), and Off-Road ADV II (AWY). I received a quick response from Hoblit Motors (near Sacrament, 2 hrs away - excellent 4% below invoice) and a number of fluffy responses (without prices). My local dealer stepped up a day later and gave me an offer within a few dollars of Hoblit. Best part is that my dealer is 5 minutes from home! They are Mcconnell Chev CJDR in Healdsburg, CA.
I recommend either Hoblit or Mcconnell if you are shopping (even by email).

Re: joining tread lightly to get Chrysler Affiliate discount

I asked my dealer about the affiliate pricing and they said yes they do it, but not on 2014 GC, Wrangler, and a couple other vehicles. Is this the same all over? Why would only my dealer have exclusions on those vehicles, when others don't seem to?

I think I remeber Chrysler saying an Affiliate price was available on everything but some Darts? , but check the Chrysler Affiliate page:

Find another dealer - pronto! I used the Tread Lightly discount when I ordered my '14 Limited; dealer was happy to include that in the deal ('cause they get $$ back from Chrysler).
