Re: Dealer won't honor Price Protection!!!

Can anyone confirm if price protection applies to the MSRP or only the options? It looks like for me price protection only applies to the audio and luxury group II:

The base MSRP is untouched if ordered before 8/10. The price protection applies to the options that were raised in cost after 8/10. Looks OK to me!

Re: Dealer won't honor Price Protection!!!

So the dealer told me they talked to Chrysler and the price protection only protects the vehicles that were ordered once the first price was released. He said they made a mistake with the pricing and quickly raised it within 2 weeks after release. Also, a deposit was never put down when ordered because dealer didn't want any since there was no price when ordering. I guess its just not meant to be. I did drive the vehicle the other day and it was fast, sounded great, and handled great. Thing is the vehicle is for my wife who would be driving it daily and may be little much for her. This combined with all the pricing issues (no price protection/no Affiliate/no incentives) means I'll be passing on the vehicle at this time. Perhaps after the 2014 refresh I will consider again and Affiliate/incentives will apply. Thanks for the great info on this forum as I could not have gone through the process without the updates and info given here. Good luck with your SRT8's! It is an awesome vehicle.

PS. Please post on this forum if you got price protection, when you ordered, and if you put a deposit down. Thanks!

Re: Dealer won't honor Price Protection!!!

After a couple weeks of emails and phone calls, my order was "officially" place on June 24th with a $1,000 down for a refundable deposit. My dealer actually emailed me before everyone else knew about the price change and told me I was "price protected".

Re: Dealer won't honor Price Protection!!!

I got the same story from my dealer. They claim no prices existed prior to 8/10/11, therefore there were no price increases, therefore no price protection.

Pricing was available to dealers on 8/1/11. I received pricing from my dealer several days later, prior to 8/10/11.

Re: Dealer won't honor Price Protection!!!

if all the dealer has to do is type in a code and get the pricing discount, then I see no other reason why they wouldn't do it except that they want to keep the difference for themselves.... Greedy bastards.

That is what I was thinking, but my dealer said he needed an electronic bill of sale showing when it was ordered and deposit taken. I though the name on the order was enough according to the letter but maybe not.

Sounds like he is bullshitting you or just has his info wrong. Maybe he is being overly cautious in case chrysler challenges it, if you had in writing the agreed on price that would probably serve as a bill of sale.

The name on the order is enough, but the sale has to be reported to Chrysler within 2 days of your taking delivery of the vehicle. The price protection applies to any order placed prior to August 10th.

Won't hurt to repeat it:

---------------------------------------------

To: All Jeep Dealers

Subject: SRT8 Grand Cherokee Pricing Announcement

Reaction to the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 has been overwhelmingly positive. Its unique craftsmanship and superlative powertrain have catapulted it past its closet competition. Our most powerful Jeep ever, the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 runs from 0-60MPH in 4.8 seconds with the all-new 6.4-liter HEMI V8 estimated at 470HP and 465 lb-ft of torque. This powertrain performance is only further complemented with the head-turning racing style and outstanding ride handling attributes. Given this level of performance and style, the value proposition remains extraordinary as compared to European competitors offering products with MSRP’s starting at $85,000.

Dubbed the “Ultimate Performance SUV”, we are committed to exclusivity by restricting our production to exactly 3,800 vehicles for the 2012 model year in the US. We realize demand is likely to exceed this production number but we are serious about protecting the Grand Cherokee SRT8's value in the short and long term. Furthermore, take rates on both the Luxury Group II (AHN) and the benchmark performance of the SRT High Performance Audio system (AJE) from Harman Kardon have remained exceptionally high.

Both options are now automatically included with every order. In addition, the following pricing actions are effective August 10th, the Luxury Group II will have an MSRP of $4,495 and the SRT High Performance Audio system will now have an MSRP of $1,995.

Bona fide sold orders obtained by you prior to August 10th will be price protected provided that:

1. THE CUSTOMER NAME APPEARS ON THE FACTORY ORDER PRIOR TO SHIP DATE (KZ)

2. The vehicle is delivered to the ordering customer within (10) calendar Days after being received by the dealer (X date).

3. The sale is reported to Chrysler Group LLC under the DealerCONNECT system within 2 calendar days of the sale.

You must claim price protection by inserting the price protection program number on the Exception Claim Entry Screen when reporting the sale. Use program number 27EC1.

Good Selling,

Ralph Gilles
President & CEO - SRT Brand and Motorsports
