Chrysler Dealers Get New Incentive Program
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. .
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.

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.
