We recently bought a 2011 Touring-L from Ziegler (Chicago area):
At the time, there were 2 $750 incentives available which was a huge help. We got the van (Touring-L) with Keyless Enter-n-Go, the Driver Convenience Group, and the upgraded wheels for $30,200.
Really liked dealing with Zeigler and they gave a great price without haggling. Might be worth checking out if you are anywhere close.
Also - absolutely love the van so far (not surprising)!
#1613 of 1653 New T&C Limited.

Just picked up a spankin' new 2010 T & C Limited for $29,500.
Looked at the new Nissan, way to bizarre, didn't bother to drive it.
Drove the new Toyota, not nice to drive.
Drove the new Ody, couldn't see paying a ton more for a car that was directly comparable to the Limited. I'll be honest, the Ody was ever so slightly above the T&C, but BARELY, not $5,000 to $7,000 better. Maybe the Honda is $300 better, but that's it.
Drove the Kia... LOL! What a pile! PU!

#1615 of 1653 2010 T&C Limited
May 11, 2011 (4:01 pm)
My wife wanted Red, so I was limited in what I could buy. There were a ton of left over 2010 T&C's on auto trader . com. If she would have taken white I'd have gotten it cheaper.. I wanted a 4.0 Limited, she wanted red.
I got mine at Carl Burgers in the San Diego area, but it was the only 2010 they had left. The guy didn't really want to let me buy the car, he was trying to get me to buy an '11 for quite a bit more, he told me it was sold. I hung up and called back asking for the Manager, sure enough he told me the car was still there and I bought it. You have to push to get the loss leader, they don't want to part with those as they make the phone ring. Once I was dealing with the manager the experience was fine, I'm no party to deal with so they did pretty good in my book.
There is one out in Avondale AZ, but the dealer misslead me trying to say it was new... 3,500 miles ain't new. The folks in Avondale had so many BS fees it was crazy, they even have a special city tax in that pathetic little city that is something like 1.7% on top of everything else, plus the dealer added on for snake oil, auto butler... I did have them down to $30,500 but they didn't mention the miles until I got the GM on the phone while I was on the road from So Cal to go pick it up. These clowns in Avondale were a horrible experience, I just made a U turn.
It's not easy, but if you can't find one on auto trader (search by New, 2010, chrysler, town and country), you need to go to each dealership website (one at at time) and look in their inventory to see if they have any 2010 models. If you find one make sure you get the price (out the door price, broken down) in writing before you go to see it. There really shouldn't be much more than about $400 in total dealship fees, anything else is BS.
We've had it for a little over a month, the car had 25 miles on it.
#1616 of 1653 Hiding Limiteds
May 11, 2011 (4:12 pm)
There are 584 new 2010 T & C's on auto trader right now. You have to look through the whole list, the Limiteds are hiding among the others. Don't use any limiting features in your search, just 2010, New, Chrysler T & C. Then look through the whole list, they're in there.

#1618 of 1653 New Purchase -Balloon Loan
Aug 25, 2011 (7:10 am)
Hi! I've been looking at a 2011 Town & Country Touring and we really like it. The MSRP is a bit over $29,000 and there is a deal going right now that brings the price to $22,378 -this is with $2,000 cash back from the manufacturer and then another $4,000 in rebates for financing with a particular bank with a $3,500 balloon payment at the end of the loan -I would refinance the loan, pretty much immediately and the dealership has told me that I can absolutely do this refinance at any time without any penalties or anything. I'm really not sure of it though -the price is great and the 2012's are rolling in, so I would have to act on this pretty quickly I think. Oh -the amount I end up financing would actually be $21446.
Has anyone had experience with refinancing a balloon loan? Is there something that I'm missing? You know what they say about "if it sounds too good to be true"...

Frankly there shouldn't be ANY fees. They are there to sell a car and if they want to sell it for 30,000 so be it... but I'll be d(*&ed if I'm going to agree to 29,000 and then give them 1,000 for some BS fees.
