Default Just took delivery: final deal for those comparing and learning

Got what I think is a good deal here in Cincinnati. Had a lot of trouble finding exactly what I wanted color/options on the 4 Dodge dealers here in Cincy. None of the trucks had everything I wanted but they were dealing to gets existing inventory off the lots. Took a week of haggling, several "What can we do make you sign today?" attempts, and lots of pitting the dealers against each other. I like the haggle. The deal number went like this (trading in a 2007 Toyota Tundra extra cab 5.7 4x4) for RAMS in th 39-40K range:

Visit 1: 34K RAM, 16 Trade in
Visit 2: 31K RAM, 17.5 Trade in

(a bunch of phone calls back and forth, a couple white lies about what other dealers were offering)

Visit 3: 29 RAM, 18.5 trade
Today final: 27K RAM, 19,200 trade

So just took delivery of a 2010 Quad Cab, Big Horn, 5.7L, 4x4 with:

Bed Liner
Step up bars
Special pin striping
Some clear coat paint package (whatever)
At cost 5yr/100K extended warranty ($750)

for $27,000 (12K off MSRP). Plus better than excellent trade in value per KBB and to sign today finally they they are paying my first payment.

Probably still go me somewhere but came in way lower than the other Dodge dealers would do here in Cincinnati. And that price point they finally quit calling and had nothing left to offer. After 3 days no more calls I believed they reached their bottom line. Plus got a monthy payment at same 60 months $40 less than Totyota Tundra payment - so wife is happy

Hope that deal info helps someone. If you got a WAY better deal, dont tell me about it

Wow man, congrats, that is one heck of a deal! Just goes to show it pays to get them to work with you, not the other way around!

Thanks everyone. I thought about waiting until end of month but I had a small window of opportunity: ie wife on board and in good mood

My wife said I should represent people's car buys for a percentage. But I could only go thru that for something I want - not sur eI could endur ethat if it wasnt for a new ride for me.

And some dealers are just more willing to go low on any given mo nth. I think after a truck has been sitting there for a few months they view it as everyone has seen it that might want it we need to get more fresh trucks in so they just want it gone. I think they get 2 in for everyone they sell 2 and other incentives from Dodge to get old ones gone.

What dealer did you buy from? I am still shopping and trying to decide if I am going to buy now or in the fall. I am closer to the Dayton area but Cincinnati may be worth the drive.
