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.
That clarifies it perfectly and is kind of what I'm hoping for.
My 2013 Laramie had:
$41,250 Price I paid
It had every option I basically wanted except Tonneau Cover.
I am expecting for my troubles that I will order the 2014 Laramie in a new color (solid white) and would like to add the
Chrome Side Striping
an addition of about $750 at no additional cost to me, a straight
trade for trade.
But since, unlike you, I don't feel I can really drive my 2013 (and basically haven't for the 7 weeks I've owned it, other than an occasional 2 mile trip to the store).
Why? Well driving a vehicle with no radio/satellite/Nav or bluetooth absolutely blows, and is not safe when needing to talk on the phone too.
I even took my 3.5 year old in the truck to the store and he asked, "daddy can we listen to music?"
When I told him we can't because it's broken, he said, "can we get it fixed."
I said, "i'd love to, I think we are getting a new truck." LOL
So, because of my inability to really use the truck for the past 2 months, I'd like Chrysler to reimburse me for my first two months payments and cost of insurance.
They can do that by reducing what I owe on my truck by that amount.
It's that simple. If they push back, they'll have my lawyers contacting them.
I'm a fair guy, and expect the same, if someone or something tries to screw me over, I won't play West Hollywood on them and just bend over and take it. Especially not from a company that has a lot more money than me, and took our money to bail them out of trouble.
Thanks for clarifying. I'll let you know soon what the outcome is.
