Thumbs up [Limited] MSRP $45,635 - Paid $38,626 - I love you guys!

My wife and I want to send a big, heartfelt Thank You to generaltso and the rest of the members of these forums - you all collectively helped us be so informed that we signed paperwork on a new Pacifica last night and felt great about the process.

I also want to thank everyone on the car-seat thread, that gave us so much clarity about the liveability with the Pacifica that it made the choice easy.

We negotiating 15% off MSRP (I had 4 dealers fully ignore me here, it took some persistence on my part and finding a patient sales manager that really wanted to make the deal happen).

It also took some serious hunting as my requirements turned out to be pretty unique:
  • Limited
  • Bright White Ext.
  • Alloy Int.
  • 8 passenger w/ 20" rims (thanks generaltso for family seating tip!)
  • Adv. SafetyTech
  • No front license plate holder (we don't need them in AZ and I don't want the front mauled)
  • "I want to pay 15% off MSRP because I know plenty of people are getting that deal."

I searched a 200 mile radius for this build in all states that don't require front license plates (I think about 11 or so) and could only find 1 in NV (about 4 hrs from AZ) and a few in the Michigan area - which is a problem because the shipping eats up any savings we are able to negotiate.

Long story short, I ended up talking to a dealer here in AZ (Avondale Chrysler) that was really patient and supportive of making the deal work - 4 others ignored me or told me "no" while this one sales director was more than happy to make it happen by trying to work every rebate angle.

Our original goal price was $37,500 but when he came back with $38,626 we thought "what the heck" and went for it.

This dealer ended up purchasing the car from the dealer in NV, I'm sure there is a few hundred $$ in there for that, but cheaper and faster than me flying out and driving it back.

The dealership thought they would get the car today and I could come pick it up, but I would expect shipping to take longer than that so I'll followup when we actually have it in the driveway.

Thanks again everyone!

Decided to purchased a loaded Pacifica Limited instead of the Hybrid since Hybrid since its first generation hybrid for Chrysler and many Options has been deleted. I shopped for 2-3 days for the best deal around. Finally offered a dealership 90 miles away 20% off from MSRP of $49,500. after much negotiations on the phone the Sales Manager called me back and offered my asking discount. $6k in dealer discount and $4k in rebates. Its an offer I can't refused. Drove 2 hours in rainy weather with my family. After 4 hours in the dealership with Us walking away form a dishonest Sales Manager, another sales rep took us to another building and closed the deal. MSRP $49,500 minus $6k in dealer discount with $4k in Chrysler rebates and $500 in USAA discount, our cost was $39,000 plus sales taxes and fees. total $43,450 out the door. Not a bad price. This dealership has a few bad apples so it will not get an endorsement from me.

The Harman Kardon Speakers, with power seats, and stow in go I think I can't wait for the Hybrid 2-3 years from now when more options are available and I can trade in the Limited without losing much on the trade.

That's a fantastic price! I'm guessing you didn't use the Sam's Club rebate since you used the one from USAA? Not that you needed an extra discount at that price!

The A-hole Sales Manager that we dealt with in beginning insisted that they both value $500 even though my papers says $1,000. I was finish arguing since we were going to walk away when he insisted that the discount only apply why finance through them but when we talked on the phone before coming he knew that I had pre approval from my bank and I didn't plan to finance with Chrysler. He told me that if I finance with Chrysler I was going to get extra $500 rebate if not then just the other rebates applies. He changed his story when we arrived. The entire time we were signing papers he had us fill out a credit form and he insisted that it will only be use for DMV purposes and not pull our credit report. He lied and pulled it anyway and offered us a decent but higher interest rate before signing the contract. My wife and I looked at each other when we saw our credit report and a finance offer sheet. Then the Sales Manager persisted to make us look like idiots for thinking that we were going to get that amount of a discount without agreeing to finance with them. Another sales rep apologized and met us in our car as we were about to leave and brought us to another building. They agreed on the original terms and we finance with our bank. by that time we were done since our 1 1/2 trip back home was going to be 4-5 hrs due to freeway closure because of flooding. 10 hours of a nightmare with my family, guess $1k/hr is not bad.

A couple of really good deals ITT. Congratulations!

Dealing with the dealerships is one reason I haven't been too excited to get a new vehicle.

Congratulations.. Great Price...

Yes this forum helped me with a target price I wanted before I went into the dealers and I got close to it and made the deal, tho they somehow had to throw in Nitrogen Tires and some Window Etching for theft insurance or something..
