Deals on Used 2015 Chrysler 200s

December 24, 2015


If you're looking for a great deal on a new or late-model mid-sized sedan, you may want to take a look at the 2015 Chrysler 200.

Chrysler recently ended a hidden dealer stair-step incentive. This type of incentive pays out only when dealers reach a certain sales goal for a given month. If they reach it, they get a retroactive bonus for each Chrysler 200 they sold that month. If they don't hit the sales target, they get nothing.

This set up a situation where some dealers were looking at up to $100,000 in hidden incentives if they could reach their sales goal, and a lot of dealers ended up purchasing a few cars themselves so they could reach the target and claim the incentive.

However, when a dealer purchases a vehicle, they can't turn around and sell it as new anymore. That vehicle is considered used, and the warranty period starts on the day they purchased it. So now, there are hundreds of 2015 Chrysler 200 models for sale with less than 10,000 miles on the odometer. I checked Cars.com and found several listings for under $14,000. (These vehicles are still covered under warranty). One was listed for $8,900 (see screenshot below).

As always, when shopping for a car, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, 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.
