Don't Expect Great Deals on These Chrysler Models
The bankrupty delayed production of 2010 models and the "cash for clunkers" program created a lot of demand for the remaining inventory of high-mpg Chrysler vehicles.
Chrysler doesn't plan on ramping up production because they don't want to be stuck with a large inventory of cars in the fall. With supplies low, dealers are not going to be negotiating great deals on these models.
Here is a list of Chrysler models which are very low in inventory. The average number of days supply for most manufacturers is around 50 days just to give you some comparison.
Our recommendation is to stay away from buying these vehicles because you're not likely to get a very good deal right now.
|Jeep Patriot||2,200 Vehicles||7 Days|
|Dodge Avenger||3,300 Vehicles||15 Days|
|Jeep Compass||1,600 Vehicles||15 Days|
|Dodge Caliber||5,200 Vehicles||17 Days|
|Dodge Caravan||6,200 Vehicles||19 Days|
|Dodge Journey||4,100 Vehicles||25 Days|
|Chrysler Sebring||2,800 Vehicles||26 Days|
|Chrysler PT Cruiser||4,400 Vehicles||28 Days|
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:
Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted NetworkSelect the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).
Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirectTrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
