Re: Tread Lightly Questions

I would recommend telling the dealer at the time of order that you plan to use the Chrysler Affiliates program. My dealer would NOT honor the Affiliates number when I went to pick up my vehicle. According to him, they (that dealership) never allows Affiliate pricing for any ordered vehicle, even though they do honor it for most cars on the lot. He honored $1500 in other discounts I was eligible for but that was it. He told me they were selling Overlands in stock at $1200 over MSRP and had no problem selling them within a couple of days of hitting the lot. So depending on demand in your area, your dealer may decide to let you out of the deal but that would mean your months of waiting would have been for naught. Getting it established up front at the time of order that they will accept Affiliates pricing will save heartache later on.

(It was the first ACC and ORA II Overland that they had seen and there were no other Overlands on the lot, so I wasn't giving up the car I had ordered and waited for.)

Re: Tread Lightly Questions

When I spoke with the person in the affiliate pricing department, she informed me that

1.) a dealer can choose to either accept or deny to affiliate pricing but if they accept it is on all orders, cars they have on the lot or cars they order, it doesnt matter. (they can't pick and choose).

2.) all incentives that are in effect at the time of PURCHASE are taken into account in the final purchase price. for example, if they are running a 0% 60mo special when you order, however it has expired by the time your order arrives and you sign the paper work, you can no longer take advantage. However if they have rolled out new incentives at the time of your physical purchase, you can take advantage of any of those.

I have said it before, if you are going to use affiliate pricing, you need to be up front with the dealership before you place your order and I would speak directly with the New Car Sales Manager (not a sales rep) to get confirmation.

Agree with Redbolt here, let them know upfront.

But, I would add, anyone paying $1,200 over MSRP for the Overland is going to look really foolish when they are selling far under MSRP and 0% APR for 60 come Spring.

In Chicago it is exactly the opposite case; the fully loaded models move quick while the non-loaded models languish. I got my Limited at a great price because it wasn't fully loaded and was sitting for ~5-6 weeks.

As far as I can tell, they are still willing to deal here in DC. I am not seeing a ton of them on the road yet.

At a certain point, you get yourself hyped up and you just want the damn thing. That's why I wound up basically spending my TL discount by renting a car and burning some road cash to get to my dealer. The feeling I had driving her home was worth every penny.

Re: Tread Lightly Questions

For those with a Control Number from the TL affiliates program that expired 12/31/10, you need to go to the Chrysler Affiliates Web Site and using your company code from your Tread lightly package simply reapply for a new control number. The new control number will expire 12/31/11. Good Luck!

Re: Tread Lightly Questions

Thanks for the tip. I'll try it tonite.

First, I didn't know if Jeep would renew the program for 2011. Second, didn't know if I had to pay for a new CN. Third, also nice to know that the CN is good until 12/31/2011, in case I wait for a 2012.

Re: Tread Lightly Questions

Just left a dealer who said "no problem"!! Thanks so much to everyone here for turning me on to this. Gonna order in the next few weeks after we make up our minds color etc., etc.

Does anyone have a link to someplace where I can find the Dealer Invoice price on the Overland? I found the Summit, but can only find MSRP on the Overland??
