Chrysler Dealers Get New Incentive Program
Normally when you leave a card in the comments and suggestions box, you have no idea whether or not the company will even read your thoughts. At Chrysler dealerships, you can guarantee that not only will they read those suggestions, but it may be a way to get a better deal on a new car.
An outside auditing firm will be measuring each dealership's ability to provide proper customer service and improve sales while limiting costs. Employees are likely to take this more seriously than previous programs because the best of the bunch can earn up to $800,000 annually based on improved performance.
Buyers can also take advantage of this based on two important factors: the program has a minimum sales cutoff that dealers need to hit before they are eligible for the larger incentives, and their customer service records play heavily in the weighting.
If you're considering a car in the Chrysler family, you may be able to get a better deal by stating that you will provide an excellent response in the follow-up surveys. Follow our car buying guide and be sure to mention that to each dealer. .
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
California Residents - Important:There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
