I just got back from the dealership. The Altitude they found for trade has since been traded to another dealership another 250 miles away. We talked and he said by the time it got back here it would have probably have around 700-800 miles on it. I told him I didn't want to do that, since it would have too many miles on it and who knows how the "transporters" treated it on the trips. Didn't want to take a chance.
Anyway, we found another but it was also a few hundred miles away. He called and that dealership wanted a equal trade and the one my dealership had to trade did not have the back up camera.
My dealership actually had one at one of their many dealerships, about 50 miles away, but it is equipped with the tow package as well. I told him I wasn't interested in the tow package and the additional $800 on top.
He talked to the sales manager and rather than trade the other dealership for the one they had with the tow package, he offered it to me at the same price quoted for the other one I was going to get, $35,580+$279 docking fee.
Can you guess what I did...?
Yep, wrote him a $500 deposit check and signed the purchase agreement right then. He's going to try and get me 2.3% for 72 months, but even at 2.9% for 72 months, I think I got a good deal.
What's nice about this trailer tow group IV package, that I didn't know about at the time, is that it comes with a 180 amp alternator, rear load leveling suspension (not exactly sure what that is), heavy duty engine cooling and a full-size spare (wondering if it has the black 20" wheel on it).
Needless to say, I'm pretty happy about the purchase - now if the Huskers can win today it would be a perfect Saturday
