Chrysler Offers $1,000 Incentive to Volkswagen Owners

December 13, 2012

Sergio Marchionne, the head of Chrysler Group, has a holiday present for Volkswagen owners – a $1,000 rebate towards the purchase of any Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Ram or Jeep vehicle.

According to an article on AutoBlog.com, the incentive stems from an ongoing battle between Marchionne and Volkswagen. The drama includes a lot of “he said, they said” including name calling and price gauging accusations.

Called the “Volkswagen Conquest Bonus Cash Offer”, the rebate is available now through January 2, 2013, to current owners or lessees of any VW brand vehicle. The $1,000 bonus cash can be used towards the purchase of any 2012 or 2013 Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram or Fiat. And VW owners do not even have to trade in their current vehicle – just show your current lease agreement or registration to qualify. Just make sure to use the CarWoo Deal Finder when you're ready to negotiate your deal.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar 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.
