    You can also be charged mark up still on Ody, but can't remember ever, anyone paying over sticker for DCX van. If you go to the Dodge site right now, you can get $5500 off without any negotiation. Then probably negotiate another $2k off with dealer - as seen in previous post here where people are getting below EP pricing. Hmmm just because you accused someone of changing what you say, doesn't make it true. Didn't you once say no one is doing better than EP?? That the price dif is only $1500?

    If they charge you markup don't buy. Right now you can get $1,340.00 off on carsdirect thats on a 2006 EX. As for the not getting better than EP! You've got to be kidding. All I did was show you the Dodge website price and the odyssey Cars direct price for similiar vans was 1500.00 differance, I can see many instances where it can even be 3-5 K early in the year. I have posted many times that type of information. Prices change quickly for all brands due to demand and marketing changes. So it's hard to say I saved 10K you can too it matters what deals are happening. BTW if you can show me where 1500 was the max I believe at one time the differance was 1500-3000max is what I said, of course you took half of it and ran with it. Also show me where I said noone is doing anybetter than EP. I do have many referances to EP. You are the one that said that wasn't bottom line. And when I replied to you I didn't argue the point.

    One thing is for certain....One can get $5500 for sure today on a Dodge. It's in black and white from Dodge, go to their webpage and build one. Are there any incentives for Honda? From that starting point, it's all up to negotiating skills and market conditions in everyone's specific location. Beyond that, it's your rosey scenario vs. mine.

    Oh I went to the Dodge site all I see for the 2006 is a 2500.00 rebate. Where's the 5500.00 dollars? One thing I know for certain, again you are wrong! The 2005 showed no incentives on the Dodge site!

    I just built s 2006 GC SXT......go thru the exercise with no options, $2500 rebate, EP $3569...no negotiating, no running all over the country looking for a Honda dealer who won't rape you, no checking every website for a grand $1340 off (sites that aren't updated regularly - no doubt). So you're correct, I was wrong, should have stated $6069 off, not $5500. I don't see anything on the Honda site for deals?

    The 2005 showed no incentives on the Dodge site! I was referring to 2006s, since I believe Dodge is sold out of 2005 models?

    Tryed again and only saw the rebate also looked at Chrysler nothing!! looked at many car sites Edmunds hasTMV for the SXT after the rebate at only $3450.00 under the MSRP. Did the EP pricing end on the 2006 models??

    Go to Dodge.com, click on carvan, click on build, click GC SXT, enter zip....still there today. I would hope DCX would have their latest incentives on their site. I have no faith in Edmunds, since they can't seem to pay any attention to the best selling minivan on the market, and provide updated road tests etc... They also don't respond to specific email asking when they plan on testing a more current 2006 instead of the 2001 they currently have.

    Anyone has experience with N. Ca dealer or purchase a touring recently? We just get start shopping and hoping to get one before year end. I check inventory through Chrysler, it looks like most dealer only have a few T&C in stock. Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated.
  • Actually at a Nissan dealership, 30k miles, cloth interior, dark red, at least in "clean" condition. Dealer asking $15,800, I'm thinking about offering $12,000. What do you think? Thanks. :)

    $12k would be about all I'd pay for a 2yr old non-stow n go minivan.
  • dennisctcdennisctc Posts: 1,168
    I agree!! That would be MAX!!!!! no more.

    I paid $ 14,000 for a 2002 T&C LX with 20,000 miles 18 months ago. It was (and still is) in mint condition and the original owner purchased the DaimlerChrysler "Added Care" 7 year/ 75,000 extended warranty that covers almost everything and made the original 7 year / 100,000 mile Powertrain Warranty transferrable for $ 150.
    The 2004 GC SXT has the larger 3.8L engine, power sliding doors both sides, and cast wheels that I do not have...BUT, I got mine from original owner who was very meticulous with all maintenance and I have all the receipts for all services.
    The 2004 GC SXT will NOT have a warranty longer than 3 year 36,000 miles if it was either a rental or lease vehicle.
    Try offering $ 11,000 for starters and up to $ 12,000 MAX as dennis suggests. ;)

    I personally prefer the NON Stow'N Go seating as the 2nd and 3rd row seats are more comfortable in my opinion. It is also easier to get groceries from the back of the NON Stow'N Go where the cargo floor is at level of the bumper and not 10 inches below (as we have learned when lifting groceries from the cargo area in our 2006 Sienna LE).

    Bought a new '06 Dodge Caravan SXT, Butane Blue, for $14995.00 after all rebates yesterday at Cerritos Dodge in SoCal...
    ... thinking I got a pretty good deal, but what really amazed me was the buying experience - absolutely the best ever. I have bought many new vehicles in my life, but I'll tell you, this dealership really treated me well.
  • Has anyone recently purchased a T&C Touring with luxury and leather group recently? Or a Limited model? I am curious as to what is a good price for either of these models. I am in the northeast so if there are any good dealers in Massachusetts that I should be aware of, please let me know.

    Congrats on a great price and nice Minivan.
  • dennisctcdennisctc Posts: 1,168
    Chrysler just announced new incentives....0% etc..check with dealer or website.
  • FYI,

    Just signed deal for 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT with no options $21,440 after rebates ($3,500), $75 service fee, $64.50 title and license, and 5.5 tax on price and rebate. Total = $22,955

    Not sure if this was a great deal. Seemed pretty good. Invoice $24,789
    Destination $730
    Total $25,519
    Rebate $3,500
    Invoice - Rebate = $22,019

    My price was $579 under invoice? Seem fair?

    Dealership = Don Miller

    I'd say you did great! Only way you could have done better was trying to find DCX employee with employee price coupon for you.
  • OK I read all your post, but didn't find what I wanted to see so here goes; for those of you that want to be mean please don't, I understand this might hurt you!
    I'm not sure how you all find out the price the dealer paid for the car at? I just hope I can get a good price from the dealer without knowing this? or tell me how!
    OK, I have to finance it and also have the trade. I know I'll be upside down. I just gotta know this going into it. They don't give you something for nothing! So should I wait til I'm NOT upside down? Because of the car which is an 03 GM and I had to finance it for 72 months, I know I'll be several years waiting!
    I am old and don't like base models, sorry. I went down to the closes dealer and found out that they have a T&C Sg Tour with a lot of equipment, and I like their Limited, except the price. Although we like the limited.
    I have to try to compair the equipment with both cars. I know what the differences are or I think I do. By their brocher.
    I started looking at the DGC SXT first. The two T&C or DGC look so much alike it isn't funny. Except colors they offer can be a bit different. Packages about the same.
    I did the build the car on both and I look at all the dealers in my zip code on line. I did find some close to what I want, but not that close.
    Here is another question; What should I pay? Since I see you all talking about this. How do you start with the dealer to get the best price as you all did? Please I could use any help.
    Thanks :blush:
