Hi all - hoping to get a couple of quick answers to newbie questions here rather than start a new thread. We may have an opportunity to choose between a 2018 Hybrid Limited and a 2019 Hybrid Limited, each w the safety package. Based on some of the discounts I see people getting in this thread, seems like there's more room for negotiation on the 18.

Should we be concerned about battery condition in the 18 if it's been sitting? And can I assume if it's still officially new, it would qualify for the same federal tax credit and state rebates (we're in MA) that the 19 does? Thanks.

Yes- I would not take an 18 without a new battery and it would have to be 3-5k below a similar 19 just to be considered depreciation wise. I bought a 19 with a dead battery that had cobwebs and pine needles in the door jambs it had been sitting so long... : ( Usually a car that has been sitting that long is there for a reason as well imo.

Thanks. And we're really just talking the 12v battery, not the main hybrid one, yes?

The 18 is white/mocha; the 19 pearlcoat/mocha - I wonder if these combos just don't sell as well as others.

Yup, just the 12v in back. And by pearlcoat, you mean the luxury white?

Yes, Luxury White. Bright White seems to have more of that generic commercial look but we could live with it if we knew we got a great deal.

What prices are you looking at? If you're planning to keep the van past the HV battery warranty, its maintenance can be of a concern. The recommended storage charge level is 40%, knowing the dealers it was most likely stored at 100 or 0%. for a year or more.

Thanks. We may keep it past 150k miles (we're a ZEV state) so probably something to consider.

The white/mocha is currently offered at about 47k with a $3.5k discount, and the Luxury/Mocha at 50,700 with just a 1.6k discount (plus the current $2500 rebate, so about the same percentage-wise)

The Luxury dealer implied they really weren't interested in budging on price at all, even by a few hundred to reduce doc fee, etc, since they know Loaded PACHY Limiteds are in short supply. Have yet to visit the Bright White dealer but plan to this morning to see their pricing flexibility. Chrysler at least confirmed for me this morning that the federal tax credit would still apply to 2018 bought this year.

As far as I know, loaded pachy limiteds are not in short supply.

Dealers that lie about things are not in short supply either.

For a 2018, you should be looking at almost $10K below MSRP. As an example the Renton Chrysler in Washington lists 6 new 2018 Hybrids on their website that are all >$9K off of list. They don't have any Limiteds left, so I can say specifically about a Limited model. I paid $33,995 for my Touring Plus. If the car is new, then it qualifies for the full $7,500 credit. I would suggest that you have the 12V battery replaced if you go down the path of a 2018. Sounds like you want to keep your car for a long time, so resale difference on a 2018 vs a 2019 won't matter that many years out.
