rebate slashed!!!

Just left the dealer lot and he informed me that the rebate has been cut from $1500 to $500 effective Nov 1. I should have purchased last week.

Wow. That's a surprise. I thought car sales slow during the holidays, but I could be wrong. I was happy to get a rebate on a new vehicle when I bought mine ($1500), and a little additional off.

I checked carsdirect.com, on 11/2/05, and they are presently showing a $500 cash rebate...

Okay..I'm an idiot. I just recieved a call from the dealer and the rebate is back at $1500. There was a dealer internet conference and the feedback was such that Chrysler put the rebate back where is was. The dealer said the rebate on the '05 Grand Cherokee is now at $5500. Sorry for the mis-information.

I just traded with the local dealer on a Limited Commander 4x4 at $700 over invoice. He will pick up the unit from another dealer and deliver it on Thurs or Friday. Can't wait.

Color is light Khaki and interior is slate greystone. Only options are tow package, tire upgrade, and hands free cell phone. We will take a short trip when we get delivery and break it in. I will need to adjust the headrests for the wife. The nicest part of this is the moonroof. The Commander will join his older brother ['84 Cj-7] and will not doubt will be fun to drive.

How much under MSRP is $700 over invoice on the vehicle you selected?

I paid about $2250 under MSRP on my Limited, but I bought it first day on the lot. I want to see how badly I got raked.

But I do love the vehicle and knew pricing would drop, just didn't expect it to be that soon....

List price on this Commander is $39620. According to the dealer the invoice is $36739 +$700 = 37439 -1500 rebate = $35,939 final price. That is $3681 below list including rebate and $2181 below list NOT including rebate. This is from a small Mom and Pop dealer. I might add that his invoice figures are slightly higher than those posted on internet site such as Edmunds.com, etc. I did bring this to his attention and he assured me that his invoice figures are correct. My preference is buy from the small dealers and avoid the high pressure of the big boys. This was a no hassle, no pressure trade.
