Default Waiting on ordered truck

For those of you who have waited for a while for your ordered truck to be delivered, or are still waiting, I may have some good news. I waited 11 weeks from the day I ordered mine, til I took posession. I asked the owner at the dealership if Dodge would throw in a little something for the extra wait. He said he would check on it for me. I was contacted by the midwest regional sales manager and he offered me a 2 yr service contract ( I tried to get a lifetime powertrain warranty, but he wouldn't budge). Anyway, this will cover oil changes and I believe tire rotations for 2 years. (Not sure how many this includes because the new manual shows oil changes at 6 months as opposed to 3 months) Anyway, it was a little gratitude shown by Dodge toward the customer. If this applies, check with your dealership. Good luck!

Anything thrown into the deal is better than nothing

Thanks GT! Yeah, it wasn't much (2 yr service contract) but it sure beats nothing at all! Even better than a stick in the eye!!

I didn't even think of asking for any compensation. I was told the truck could take between 6-10 weeks to come in. The truck came in at 10 1/2 weeks so it was still within the quoted time frame.
I negotiated an extended warranty today and paint protection. I'm not usually one who gets "suckered" in by these add-ons BUT...with it being my first Dodge (and with a HEMI), I figured I would get the extended warranty, just to be safe. And with my truck being black, I wanted to have something to protect the finish. I owned an '89 Mustang 5.0L back when I was a young buck...the paint color was black. The paint job went for S*** after a few years, and I always waxed it, etc.
The warranty for 7 years - 100,000KM cost me $1150 and the paint protection cost me $250 (probably the same as what MING Auto would cost.)

All in all I'm pretty happy with my purchase.
I'll post more pics once I'm finished adding the graphics to it.

Cheers!
