Default My Ordering a Longhorn Adventure

I began talking to dealers about ordering a truck 2 weeks ago ......talked to several, got several prices.

then last week, I got an email from Ram saying my truck was being processed for production. I was floored, who ordered me a truck without my permission? I got a vots vin and everything.... well I called that dealer and was livid, told them my name better get off that order ASAP.

about a week went by and they never took care of it, so I called back Friday and ranted some more, dealer told me that the order has reached stage D and cant get my name off of the order...I said I bet my attorney can. They offered to make it "financially right" ....... we went round and round and came to $2750 under invoice and 41.9K after incentives, before trade and taxes.......so I am going to the dealer today to sign up and get the trade negotiated.... hope to get 38k financed, tax in, OTD.

MSRP 53985
invoice 49237
price 46487
after rebates(before trade) 41987

I think I did good on price lol, and look forward to owning this beast of a truck!!

Sounds like you got a great price! Usually, it's a crap shoot for dealers to know exactly what to have on hand. There are so many options and flavors you can put on a truck. As soon as he knew you were looking for one, he decided to order it. He would have a leg up on the other dealers in the area by having one for you to see and drive. He put your name on the order, but that doesn't commit you to buy it!
Great deal anyway!

Your right it's a sales tactic to beat other dealers to the punch and get your business. Unless you actually sign purchase papers you haven't bought or commited to the purchase. The paper york that is signed for placing an order is to assure the price that was negotiated at the time of order.

That's a sweet deal!! Have you had a chance to look at the build sheet? If so, I'd love to know if the price you're getting is the employee pricing. And if so, I'd love to know how their doing it. If not employee pricing, they're taking a hit of over a grand on this deal because the holdback is probably around $1500!! Even if they're taking a hit, I think it's still cheaper for them then paying an attorney and having a pissed off consumer....

You got a fantastic deal, congratulations!!

I don't think it is employee pricing. But it is a good deal

just back from the dealer (3 hours away)

after my 6k trade, which was fair and want I wanted for it.....tax in out the door 38.6k financed.

he said the order was in D status and it should be here by the end of March.....with the 8speed discussion on this board I guess shall wait and see.

funny thing is, this dealer was the highest quote I got from anyone. They were about 1k over invoice with everyone else 750 under invoice and going lower.....its funny how getting pissed off gets you the better price by a mile(not that I like doing business like that). I knew I didn't have to buy the truck I just found it shady. Plus I believe all a man has is his name and for someone to use that name to do something without permission erks me at best.

Plus I didn't want my name on 2 different orders and receive 2 sets of email on 2 different builds........alls well that ends well I suppose.

cant wait to get it!! This is my first brand new vehicle, and first Ram truck so I am super excited! Will post pics without a doubt!!!! thanks guys!
