Best to purchase 2019 Hyb Limited in SoCal?

Hi

I'm looking to purchase a 2019 Hyb Limited in SoCal (North San Diego County). I'm open to anywhere within 75 miles of driving. Any recommendations for dealers? Prices?

Thanks

James

Yeah, steer VERY clear of Orange Coast Chrysler...

I am not a liberty to discuss it as the matter has been resolved.

On a completely different note- a Non Disclosure Agreement is a very interesting document people often sign when a party doesn't want to admit it was wrong, but is settling the matter. LOL

Though I should add-
Chrysler has zero interest in what its dealers are doing. Chryslercares on this site is simply a minimum wage employee reading posts to make it appear Chrysler is involved. After my experience, Chrysler is actively NOT involved. Chrysler has a brand confidence issue and knows it... thus actively trying to fight it with things like Chrysler Cares. If its a REAL problem and not a leaky gasket, trust me Chrysler doesn't care LOL. They just want potential buyers to THINK they care. THATS WHY CHRYSLER CARES RESPONDS TO SO MANY POSTS. So buyers see it looks like Chrysler well cares LOL! Chrysler knows how many potential buyers google 2019 pacifica and find this forum... How do you think we ALL got here?... Chrysler knows.

You are on your own with a manufacturer that offers zero support most of the time (just read this forum LOL) and dealers that will 100% lie and screw with you.

The BEST THING BY FAR you can do is this-

Walk into the dealer tell your sales man you are going to be recording video as you go over the car so you can show friends/kids what ever. (this resolves the requirement in California to notify someone they are being recorded- made of RECORD)

Then hit record on your phone (video, audio whatever)

Then continue to record EVERYTHING including the negotiations, fake promises and lies he will spew LOL. 100% of salesmen I visited lied.

Reason being when you have bought the car and they now sing a different song of "I never said that" you can play it back for them to their manager.

Take them to small claims court and win.

But you won't get that far.... lol but you do need to be willing to take it that far.

Car dealerships break the law with every customer. Ok 99% LOL... Be prepared. I was!

Why do business with a dishonest dealer?

I, too, like many others, have roamed on this forum and read valuable insights... good, bad or ugly, then took a chance and got a Pachy. Iíve just past 10k miles and the only major problem Iíve encountered so far is UConnect theater not coming back on after a brief stop! It has, otherwise, performed flawlessly thus far (knock on wood)!

When I pulled the trigger on getting the Pachy, I was looking into leasing...with a help of a broker, he referred Orange Coast Chrysler to me. The quote was $10 less than an Odyssey Elite so I was happy with it; however, they didnít have the color combo I wanted so I searched all over SoCal for the exact van I wanted and ended up with Jack Powell Chrysler in Escondido. They were more than happy to lease it to me by matching my previous quote and the finance manager didnít even try to up sell me other add-ons ...unlike Autonation which quoted me a 40% higher price and told me I couldnít get a better deal! lol

Iíve read on here a lot of people seem to have gotten good deals from Huntington Beach, so you may want to start there? Use their quote to work with Jack Powell so you donít need to travel as far...? good luck!

Thanks for the pointers. So what's a good percentage off MSRP to shoot for (including the cash rebate of $1000 right now)? 7%, 10%?

Donít know about your local market, but I was at 7% off dealer invoice plus rebates off of that amount.

Glad I found this thread, I'm about to start hunting for the best bargain on a PacHy in Orange County, CA.

The Orange Coast Chrysler dealer mentioned above is actually a couple of blocks away from home, I was going to start there, but after reading the post by user @whitepapagold , I'll probably steer away from them and go directly to the Huntington Beach location.

I'm basically looking for the best bang for the buck on a 2019 Limited with the Advanced SafetyTec Group package.

If anyone has any other recommendations please let me know, I'm willing to drive to LA or San Diego to make a good purchase.

Thanks!

Let me know what you find. We can compare notes, maybe even a buy-two-at-once deal with one of the dealers that want to sell two cars at the same time.

Huntington Beach is your best bet for saving money, but the process will be amazingly slow and finance will try and push everything on you. That said, I bought there and would definitely do it again.
