Default 2012 check ride

First post here. Lots of good info on this forum. I currently have a 2009 Laramie Crew cab with 49000 miles. The truck has been awsome and have had zero issues. I got the urge to trade for a 2012 Laramie crew cab while my truck was still worth something.

Anyway, I went to the dealer after negotiating $9325.00 off sticker. The truck had everything I wanted including 3.92 gears and 32 gallon gas tank. I had to drive 200 miles to this out of state dealer. So I get threre and the truck is in the show room all waxed up, looking sweet. Bright silver metalic. I start my inspection process an find a cut in the driver seat cushion and a paint flaw on passenger side door. We bring the truck over to the body shop and the manager states that both are manufactuer defects and will be covered under my warranty if I dceide to take the truck. They want me to buy the truck and have my local dealer fix it under warranty. I am on the fence at this point.

Now we go for a test ride and hear an annoying squeak from the right side of the dash that is a deal breaker. Drive around a parking lot for 1 hour trying to isolate noise to no avail. I told them I would not take the truck like this. They said they would take care of all issues, new seat cushion, repaint door and fix sqeaking dash. (They may have to remove the dash). I said if they do all those things, I would take it.

What do you guys think?

Wait until THEY fix it to sign the papers, do your test drive again to make sure that annoyance is gone, then you can do the deal. They shouldn't have a problem with this. Hopefully you end up with that sweet ride, best of luck.

Yes. That is what I am doing. Waiting for them to call me. I know they are hot to get rid of this truck.

Definitavely DON'T do anything until they fix everything and then they put it in writting. Then a good test drive at highway speed and secondary roads with bumps and check for anything else that could be wrong with it.

If you just fall for it and something goes wrong, you will regret it for sure!
