Default High Volume dealer

Here is a basic question that may seem simple to some folks. How do I find a high volume dealer in my area. I live in Southern New Hampshire. Do I just the dealership with the most trucks on the lot? Is it that simple.

Generally.... yes.


If they aren't moving trucks... then Chrysler wont send them more. so, if you have a local dealer with +100 ram 1500's on the lot.., that's the guy to talk to.

Just be aware if you are ordering a truck it could bite you in the ass. My high volume dealer was out of allotments so my truck order got held up almost two weeks until another allotment opened up.

KEEBEE. Did you just say your dealer held you up for 2 weeks ? My dealer placed my order on 2-10-14 one week ahead of yours. Yours is built and mine is not. What's with that?

Default New Hampshire Dealers

I'm in So.NH. Got mine in Nashua, They had the best prices without traveling to far. Haggled with them and got a good deal. There is another in Portsmouth. I would not recommend the Manchester dealer.

I ordered through Koons Chrysler Dodge up in D.C. They had the best deal going when we purchased my wife's 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, and again when it came time to order my 2014 Ram.

They also beat Chrysler Warranties price on the lifetime plan by a small margin.

Steve Bristow is our sales guy and I highly recommend him.

No idea. My dealer did not tell me they were out of allotments when I ordered. They had to get their Chrysler rep involved to get my order in but it didn't get scheduled until the 7th of March when allotments reset.

I'm in southern NH as well and just bought a truck two weeks ago. I was looking for something particular (V6 CC) and no one had any. I still went to Nashua, Hooksett, and Milford to look and drive. I figured if I met a salesperson I could tolerate I'd have them swap one in. I spent 35 min in hooksett without anyone helping me. In Nashua I got a guy that just wanted to get rid of me and call me tomorrow. He never asked for my number. And Milford I finally got to drive V6 and V8. They only had one v6 and it was nothing close to what I wanted. They did have a V8 that met my desire. The sales person didn't want to find me a V6, he just kept telling me everyone buys the v8 thabks to MDS. OK. So instead I went on Ramtrucks.com and searched out my truck and found it in Haverhill. I ended up speaking with GSM directly and he handled everything himself. Easiest transaction ever. I will say I am a sales manager at a BMW dealership which may explain his direct involvement, but either way I got what I want for what I wanted to pay.
