Re: What kind of "Freebies" did you get from your dealer?

Well lets see............ I received a 1/4 tank of gas even though Chrysler reinbursts all dealers for a full tank!

Free dealer logoed plate brackets that I told the prep guy to remove on the spot, right in front of the dealers front door.

A hard time, at no extra charge, when I told them to replace the steering wheel in my Overand Summit because it had cosmetic damage in two identical spots on either side of the the black burlwood!

Salesman; We'll try to warantee it but it may not be approved.

Me; WTF!! Warantee it? I didn't even buy it yet and if you don't replace the wheel I won't be buying it... so I suggest you get it approved quickly!!!!!!

Salesman; Well, we only made $150.00 on this Jeep so I'd rather sell it to someone else!

Me; Fine, get me an Overland Summit with no cosmetic damage, just like the one I ordered on this legally binding sales contract and only make $150.00 on that! A**hole

And the best freebie of all, after they replace the steering wheel, and I sign all the papers and hand over a bank check for the entire balance due I'm informed of an undisclosed balance due for "extras" I didn't agree too, nor were on my signed sales contract!! Which I refused to pay of course.

Aftersales Vulture; Well then we'll have to put the Jeep back in inventory.

Me; Ok great you do that, as I put the last of the paperwork in my folder, made sure I had all of the keyfobs in my pockets and got into my brand new Overland and drove away!

All of this fun, excitement, and drama, FREE no extra charge!

Does Chrysler require a gc be delivered with a full tank?

I think my invoice said 6 gallons from Chrysler. My dealer told me to get screwed on a tank of gas. Claims they lost money on my deal.. if there were not kids around I woulda said bull shit! No matter how much they whine... They still make $$$ off of all of us

My sister would ask the financing guy how much they are going to pay her to put the sticker on....amazingly her cars never had a sticker on them when she drove off.

I just peel mine off and leave it in the parking lot at the dealer.

Normally I either make sure the free advertising decal and plate frames are not installed or immediately removed but I'm gonna leave these freebies on for a while until I make a number of trips for parts/accessories to the more local dealership that gave us the run around for two weeks saying they would do a dealer-trade for the one we really wanted but some-how kept coming up with JGCs that were the wrong color combination and had more options (read-cost more$) than the one we were looking to buy.

Also got a free dealer/jeep hat, beach bag, two insulated can cosies, full tank of gas, one oil change coupon, two ugly red dealer key chains, small stuffed teddy bear and I think my two year old five fingered a Hot Wheels car from their play area.

You're a better man than me...I'd have told them to kiss my a$$ long before taking that Jeep home - I didn't need mine that bad when I bought it, and I told the dealer as much. I told them the same thing when they screwed up and the one they tried trading for was sold out from under them - told them either they came up with the exact same car, or I walked away. I wound up getting same options, but in true blue, which is what I "really" wanted but no one had, till then.

Re: What kind of "Freebies" did you get from your dealer?

I was told the government overseer won't let Chrysler fill the tank. I never bought a new car without it being fueled. The dealer gave me a $40 gas voucher. I also got 5 free oil changes.
