I hate to hear this kind of situation. Get yor money back and then PM me and I'll hook you up with a dealer here. I know a family owned dealer here in Houston who can get whatever you are looking for (tons of RAM's here in Texas), and they'll usually price it $100 above invoice if the transfer isn't too challenging. You can fly direct from Newark to Houston and then drive it home with pride and a smile. Don't listen to the silly commercials, Texas gets along great with New York City! (I was there a few years myself before anchoring here for the last 16 years). Let me know if I can help.

Hey Razor... Thanks for the offer. If I have any issues... I will check out Dodge's site to see what they have available by you. Thanks for the offer to assist me if need be.

It would be goo dto get back to texas anyways.... last time I was there was in DFW for a single over-night stay for a business meeting. Did not get to see much of anything.

Thanks again and I will keep everyone posted!!

Tim

Default Update!!

So I waited until Monday as I said I would and my salesman called me and told me that they secured one of the trucks I found in PA. But he wanted to wait until the end of the day to see if the Distribution Manager was able to locate the truck in Detroit Inventory built the way I want it.

Today, Tues... I just got a call from my salesman telling me they do not have the truck with my build-out in inventory in Detroit and I am unable to order it. However, the are getting the truck they secured for me in PA on Thurs! I can take delivery on Friday or Saturday.

So what's the difference? I ordered a truck with a drop in bed-liner... but turns out I rather not have it. The Truck from PA does not have a bed-liner. so that worked out to my advantage. I will just have to find a local Spray liner installer.

As for the Bed Cover... Mopar does not make it in Bright White, so I either have to get stone white and have it re-painted... which Im not so crazy about, or the dealer offers Century Covers, which Im not so crazy about as I have not ready anything about them really on this forum. So I have to try to go and see what I can get off my truck price wise to help cover the cost of a Liner from Leer.

So I may have my truck by the weekend. So this is one of those deals where the dealer B.S. turned out to be the better for the customer.

I would have regretted the drop in liner based on all the info I red on the forumz and would have had that huge bulky thing sitting somewhere in my warehouse.

I will keep you all advised as to how this proceeds and better yet if I pick up on Friday or Saturday!!

Thank you all for your support.

- Tim

I just spoke to our sales manager and he tells me that Dodge not taking orders right now "Is pure horse shit. You can order anything you want." He stated that delivery time is 6-8 weeks.

I checked with 2 other dealers both said they could not order now either? So maybe it depends on regional allocation? Whats in inventory waiting for shipping to the North East Dealers etc? I dont know. To be honest I dont care how I get my truck, just as long as I can get it... with the options I want and if I can get it this week rather then the 8-10 weeks or even 6-8 weeks... Im even happier.

It does amaze me that this day in age, that dealers are still or attempting to blow smoke up people's butts to sell a car. I have leased a great many vehicles in the past 15-18 years or so. And well awayr of the "Talk to my sales manager" or the "giving it to you at $500 above cost" games.

What does the internet have to do with the B.S. they pull? Knowing the internet has an effect, I think for most dealers it has a positive effect, and for those who do not employ the use of the internet close down. My favorite dodge dealer was Old Country Dodge in long Island. A 5-Star Dealer. Got 3 Durangos from them... and loved them so much I drve the 70 miles just to get my services from them.

Bit they closed down???? I dont get it. In 1998, when durangos first came out, they had the highest number of durangos sold in the tri-state area. How do you go from number 1 to number 0 and closing down? Internet? They never went online... and never wanted to deal with the internet customer.

I think a lot of the bigger city dealers feel internet is annoying and a hassle where most people just call or email for a price etc.

These dealers know what they all pay, and they know what their competition is doing. So why play the games and waste time and lose sales. Just keep the customer happy and make the sale. As long as their is profit... then you did good. Does it have to be a gross amount of profit? In my book selling something for a profit is PROFIT... and better then not selling anything at all. Or as I heard someone say once...

When you are hungry, a small bite of a sandwich is better then watching someone else eat and you have nothing at all.

Tim

I'm wondering about that regional thing myself. I'm not in sales or management, so I'm not privy to that sort of info.

a friend of mine doesn't want to deal with sales persons, with the old line of 'I'll check with the sales manager to see if we can do that' BS
he buys his vehicles right over the internet, through the internet sales person, gets what he wants & at a lower price
