I have made my choice and now own something I never thought I would !! I made up my mind, and decided to go with the Atlantic Blue color, and I must say.. I am one of the type that always has buyers remorse, a little bit, just cause I never seem to get a great deal, and everything I seem to buy costs a butt load BUT I must say, I've had the truck a week now, and I HAVE NONE, this truck is fugglin' awesome! Power, performance, looks, Dodge CAN NOT EVER create a vehicle that is this great again, the limit has been met :flippy: . I've still have that "first day" smile
As for my truck, I selected the SLT not the Laramie I was planning on getting. Cost Vs. Product, SLT was the better deal for me, I can purchase leather at a dodge discount (per our deal) or aftermarket leather shops around town. I am extremely happy, because I did get the black interior, which seemed scarce around here. All in all, I got everything I wanted, except the leather, which I'm ok with.
The Deal - Sticker was 33,278 For any of you out there, that have used or planning on using an "Affiliate Rewards Discount", this is a crock of you know what. I was told that 95% of all Dealers participate in this program, however this is by choice "participating locations" sound familiar ? Any way, dealers tried working there way around me asking for my discount, some even ignoring me asking! So, my last try was Garden Grove Union Dodge, CA.. They too, refused to give me "MY" discount! So after some cool headed conversation I walked out. Being met by the dealer at my car, (Manager was the one to break it to me, that they didn't want to do the deal with the discount), the dealer convinced me "to just try 7,000 down, and lets see the numbers" so I did.. why ? dunno! I get back in, and realized, "wait that still doesn't give me my discount.." and out of the blue the manager agreed to giving me invoice price. I believe he realized I was serious about buying, and with the gas prices, was willing to rid himself of a truck on the lot.
Sticker - 33,278.
Supposed Invoice - 28,747
Rebates - 4,500
New Price - 24,247
Down Payment 7,000
I appreciate all help and opinions you all have given me, and look for more in the future. As soon as I can decide how I want to get pictures up here, I will, and Mods anyone ?
