Chrysler Offers $4,500 Rebate to Promote Cash for Clunkers

The rebate is good for all Chrysler vehicles except the Jeep Wrangler, Dodge Challenger and Dodge Sprinter.
Without a doubt, this makes it the best time EVER to buy a Chrysler vehicle. The chance to get $9,000 chopped off the price of a new car before any negotiation takes place is simply amazing.
3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:
