Chrysler Offers $1,000 Incentive to Volkswagen Owners

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 RydeShopper when you're ready to negotiate your deal.

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The 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 Network

Select 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 / CarsDirect

TrueCar, 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.
