Chrysler Jumps on Year-End Sale Bandwagon

Chryslersale

'Tis the season for year-end sales. We've already covered GM's Red Tag Sales Event and Ford's byzantine Employee Pricing Plus. Now it's Chrysler's turn, and its Year-End Sell-a-Thon is pretty much what you'd expect: A mix of cash-back incentives and financing available on 2008 and 2009 models. Most 2008s seem to have 0.0% financing for 36 months and a range of cash-back offers, while 2009s for the most part just get cash back. Of course, these are never easy to figure out, but below are a few of the notable incentives we came up with on Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep zip-code-based sales website. As always, check your zip code to be absolutely sure any offers apply to you:

Still not good deals, considering the vehicles involved!!!

I am chuckling because there is not as much different between some 2008 and 2009. The problem is Chyrsler management is already selling. It is too bad, my family has had great experiences with their vehicles. I consider very few modern vehicles worth the price tag new. Unfortunately we are all forced to pay.

GR

The $2.99 gasoline guarantee was a bust, the Shop till you Drive was a bust. Sounds like Chrysler needs to concentrate on building some solid, efficient vehicles to be sold at a price that is more than competitive.

Bloke

The 2.99 thing was actually good for Chrysler wasn't it (as long as it helped them sell cars that is)? And don't you mean less than competitive GR? I wonder whatever happened to the Hornet that was supposed to be Chrysler new small car? That thing looked pretty nice. I think more than anything Chrysler is pretty much screwed because they are being run by a private equity firm that originally just wanted to cut it up and sell it for a profit.

GR

I wasn't quite sure how to phrase that statement. A competitive price would be at the same level as the others so that is why I said more (meaning better) than competitive.

*DO NOT BUY FROM CHRYSLER OR GM*

Two of my work colleagues have recently ran into situations where dealers are refusing to perform warranty work. Both colleagues have been told that until they get a firm commitment from "headquarters" that they will be reimbursed they cannot perform the warranty work. One colleague owns a Chevy, the other a Dodge, and both vehicles are less than a year old. Caveat Emptor!

Mel,
Have your friends call the phone numbers in their owners manuals and report the dealers. They'd be breaking their franchise agreements for refusing warranty work. I find it hard to believe that this is accurate. If anyone else has had similar experiences please let us know.

Last year I had to fight with two local Chrysler dealers who refused to perform warranty work. One finally relented when I filed a complaint with my state's division of motor vehicles. From a dealers perspective I can understand why they may think twice about doing work for which they may not get paid for.

"They'd be breaking their franchise agreements for refusing warranty work." Dave I know you are a Subaru driving goober but you can't be this naive.

DodgeFan

As some people have stated you got fight sometimes. Unfortunately, some 'crappy dealers' give domestics a bad name. I hoping those dealers go out of business.
