I've had more than a few folks asking how my negotiations are going with dealers in the greater Seattle Area.
So far... mixed bag.
wouldn't negotiate until the rig could be ordered, but said that 1% under nvoice isn't an issue, but said that the Costco offer maybe a better pricepoint versus the standard AF/TL offer.
Rairdon's of Kirkland (AKA Dodge chrysler Jeem Ram of Kirkland)
was utterly useless. Tried to sell me a 2013, told me that the CRD would be $8k more than the standard V6, told me they would not be available until August, and (until I mentioned AF/TL) told me I'd be lucky to get MSRP prices.
Car Pros Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram
in Renton said they'd meet/beat any offer I have in writing.
I'm meeting with them tomorrow and we'll see if they will meet/beat Pat's 2% offer or the "tentative" 2% offer from...
Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Bellevue
who won't fully commit to a 2% pricing until they can place the order, but said they would match Pat's offer (tentatively). I've been working with Dave Tisdial there now for a good 8 months on the rig, so I'm leanign that way right now unless Car Pro's blows them out of the water, or if they backtrack on the 2%.
This being said, I think getting the 2% from them has been more tooth pulling then is needed on a 1:1 basis.
If a few folks are interested, I can go to them (or any dealer) and see about doing a group order or such.
