You said you agreed to trade the 13 for the 14, but you said Chrysler gave you back "sticker" price but you paid $8,800 under sticker for the 13?

Does that mean you pocketed $8,800 out of the deal?
Then you said you got a 14 which was $1000 higher and got an additional $1000 worth of options on the 14 over the 13?

I think the rep is going to call me tomorrow as he said he wanted to take care of this early this week, when he spoke to me on Friday.
My thought process was that I'd also order a 14 with at least the Tonneau Cover on it that my 13 didn't have for my troubles.

Further, since I haven't been able (or willing) to drive my truck for the past 7 weeks without a radio/nav/bluetooth, I'd like Chrysler to credit me for my first two months of payments as well as insurance.
On top of that, clearly if I have to order my 14, it's going to take 6-8 weeks to come in.
I don't want a truck that does not have a working radio/nav.
So either they have to give me a loaner vehicle for the 6-8 weeks or compensate me some other way for my loss of vehicle use.
On top of that, I've taken the truck to two dealers to get it "fixed" and both times have had issues so a new radio has never been ordered.
It was two days of wasted time and trips for me.

I'll see what the rep says tomorrow, but if you can, clarify what you meant in my questions above, I would appreciate it.


Hope this helps explain it for me...I bought my 2013 with 6800.00 off the sticker price with rebates and dealer cuts. So the 13 sticker price was like this:

2013 Ram Laramie
49635.00 Sticker Price
(-6800.00) in cash ,rebates etc.
42835.00 Is what I paid.

2013 did not have Limited Slip Dif. (325.00 Option)
Did not had Skid plate Package (150.00 option)
Did not have Tow Mirrors. (330.00 Option)
Did Not have 3.92 gear. (50.00 option)
Spray in Bed Liner (475.00 option)

2014 Ram Laramie
50720.00 Sticker Price
(-49635.00) credit for 2013 Laramie Buy back.
1085.00 I should have owed Chrysler the Difference.
Chrysler paid the Difference for me.
The above options That were NOT on the 13 are now on the 14 at NO CHARGE to me for a total of 1330.00
Plus the 6800. I got in cash rebates.
Plus the 1085 Chrysler Paid for me.
1085.00 +1330.00 +6800.00 = 9185.00 I never paid.

Chrysler sold me the 14 with all options I wanted for same price (by paying my increased difference of 1085.)from the 13. They allowed me to drive my 2013 until the 14 arrived I just could not pull my camper with 3.21 gear.

In my case the mistake cost me a summer of camping but Chrysler never charged me for all I wanted on a 14. The trade was -o- out of my bank account sticker for sticker and replaced the mistake Chrysler made. Its okay on my part Chrysler done a fine job with me.

I will buy a Ram any time again or a Chrysler Product with no questions asked.
