#125 of 182 06 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT
Jul 04, 2006 (7:57 pm)
My sister purchased a new 2006 Grand Caravan SXT, through her friends contact at the dealer, but now thinks she got messed up on the final price calculation. Felt somewhat pressued to finalize the deal in June due to the rebates.
Here are the details:
"Savings" = (2,930)
Rebates = (4,750)
"Adjusted Sales Price" = 20,975
Net Sale Price (including tax, docs,etc.) = 22,906
Put 14,000 down and financed 8,906 for 4 yrs as they had the price at 25,725 (28,955-2930) + taxes, etc.
Then deducted the 4,740 rebates (4,000 + 750 chrylser owner loyality.)
Did she do ok?

Sounds like she got a good deal. Discount and rebate of $2930+$4750=$7680.
In comparison, I just bought Grand Caravan SE with some options, MSRP was $26640 and discount+rebate was $2434+$4750=$7184. So she got about $500 more off MSRP on a vehicle that had a MSRP at about $2000 more than mine.
It is typical for sales taxes to be figured on the price before rebates, I believe most states require the calculation to be done this way.

Thanks for the reply. I think she was nervous because the discount was off msrp and not relative to dealer price paid. OTD price was just about TMV price, before taxes and TTL. Good luck with yours.

I just purchased a Town&Country touring from T&C in Levittown NY. The sales reps were not pushy, the prices were in the ballpark,and the 0/cashback special made it an easy decision over the honda odessey. I highly recommend purchasing from them.
#129 of 182 Will Stow and Go seats work for my Caravan SE 2003?

I have to replace one of my 2nd row seats and found some left and right Stow and Go seats on the Internet. Will these seats work for a Dodge Caravan SE 2003?

No, you don't have any pocket in the floor for them to stow into.
#131 of 182 2006 Grand Caravan SXT - is this a fair price?
Jul 24, 2006 (10:11 am)
Is this a good deal? or should we try to negotiate further?
2006 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT
MSRP - 29,625
includes side air bags in all 3 rows, tow package and rear parking assist
We were quoted 24,226 (this includes a 2,500 rebate and employee pricing).
Also has anyone heard if the rebate will be changing next month?
Thanks in advance for your input!

I would think you could do better than that. In June before the July employee pricing I purchased a GC SE that MSRP'd for $26,640 for $19555, more than $7K off.
However, rebates were actually better in June than July, so I can't say if you could hit that now. I got employee pricing in June+$4000 rebate+$750 owner loyalty rebate for already owning a 1996 Caravan.
If you are willing to wait even closer to the end of the model year, the prices on remaining 2006's are likely to get better, but with less choices on the lots.

The Madison Wisconsin Dodge dealer ALWAYS has an excellent inventory of Caravan and Grand Caravan and seems to make THE BEST deals of almost any dealer of any make.
If I lived in Madison, I would have dumped my 2006 Sienna LE on a trade for a 2006 GC SXT.
