Want to get a deal on your favorite brand? Shop where the brand sells well.
"Regions where certain brands are popular will naturally be targeted by the manufacturers of those cars—and by their competition. Case in point: The Chrysler 200 sells for 1.5% less in Detroit, Mich. than Los Angeles, Calif., according to transaction prices tracked by Edmunds.com. “If there’s a lot of inventory and competition in that segment heavy incentives will be pushed for those cars,” says Richard Arca, senior manager of pricing for price-comparison website Edmunds.com. A Mercedes-Benz C-Class—popular in Los Angeles—is 2% cheaper there than in Kentucky, based on the Edmunds.com data."

I'm loyal to Chevrolet and that makes some people crazy, telling me why I shouldn't be. LOL
Low initial price, styling, better warranty than many others, cheap to maintain, employs more USA workers and suppliers than other automakers, my personal car must be built in U.S. as well. Some new Silverados are built in Mexico; I believe those are the only Chevys built there. The Sonic is the only U.S.-built subcompact. My Service Writer came from a Honda store to a Chevy store, and while he said warranty fixes might have been less common there, his experience was that Honda rarely if ever went over and above the standard warranty, while Chevy does. (He stated he was beat up for high warranty costs while at the Honda store.) I also own a used Mopar and while it has had more issues than my cheapo Cobalts (I own two), my Chrysler dealer recent replaced the brake booster and check valve for free, not a recall, and considering I didn't buy the car there and I bought it used, I can't really ask for much more than that. I keep cars a long time too. How much more will people pay upfront for that perception of reliability?
