DO NOT BUY. The new Pentastar engines have many troubles. Stay away from T&C.

I was going to say yOu bought a 6 months used van. 6 months for a reason and you got a lemon, however it seems there are some serious problems with these new engines...
Was looking at a new 2012. A lot more features than similar priced Oddy or Sienna. However I am now reconsidering...
#1631 of 1653 Balloon finance info request
Feb 08, 2012 (6:24 pm)
Any more info on the balloon finance pay off? extra fees, charges when pay off. I'm looking at the same $3000 discount on the balloons finance and trying to find out if there any catch with it.

Few weeks ago I was successfully able to refinance and took the advantage of balloon pay off with no issues, so far.

Hi all, First time buying a new car/Van.
I am getting a quote for new 2012 Town and County for $24.5K with Balloon cash. Is this a good quote? what should I be looking at if it is not a good price?
#1634 of 1653 Touring L - New Purchase Completed - HOUSTON
May 01, 2012 (8:44 am)
Trying to help others - bought yesterday (4/30) - worked with internet sales manager:
New 2102 Town and Country Touring L - Driver Convenience Package
Black exterior, black interior. Had been on the lot about 3 weeks.
MSRP - $34,125
Selling Price (includes destination) - $31,561.83
Rebate - $2,000 (1,000 trade in allowance, and 1,000 I have no idea)
Adjusted Price - $29,561.83
That's before TTL which was adjusted because of my trade in. I THINK TrueCar.com showed $30,900 as a "great price" (included $1,000 rebate) and Edmunds showed $32,380 (no rebate included). That suggests to me that both may be a bit too high.
I hope that helps others do better!

Fullerton Chrysler Somerville, NJ quoted me a price of $28,697 on a Town & Country Touring- L Model. MSRP $35020 includes Drivers Convenience Package 29J, Dual Screen DVD and Navigation. I work for a affiliate company. So i was eligible for 1% below invoice, bringing down the price to $33,197. They offered $4500 in rebates. $1000 Customer Cash, $1000 Trade in Allowance, $2500 for financing with Ally - Regular Finance 1.9 APR for 84 months. They said, the rebates would change today. Hoping for a better rebate this month. Let me know if its a good deal.

I am after a TC-L with a dealer in the STL area. I work for an affiliate company and qualified for the 1% below invoice. They offered me $1750 rebate and $1000 trade in for a total of $30736. Am I missing anything else? How hard is it to get the Ally incentive? Are May incentive/rebates good? i worried I am going to get killed on my trade and i need that cash for helping me finance less. Is this a good deal? Appreciate the help!
Customer Preferred Package 29L

Speaking of "killed in the trade," the dealer TOTALLY lowballed my trade. As in, NOT EVEN IN THE BALLPARK lowballed. After I got their offer, took my trade in to get an offer from some other dealers (including Carmax.) Turns out that the original trade in offer was about 30% below what I got from some competitors.
Interesting note - as I was shopping around got a call from the Chrysler dealer who made the original offer. I could tell they FREAKED when they heard I was out price shopping at other dealers. After I hung up the phone, I got a call back 15 minutes later - "My manager authorized me to find a way to meet the best offer you've got."
And, before you mention it, I know I could have probably netted around another $500 if I sold it privately but I wasn't interested in the hassle.

After looking at your deal you got a good one. I ended up getting the Touring-l Convenience package, 29J, media center 730N for $31,313 excluding TTL. I think I left some money on the table but i did get Kelley Blue Book excellent for my trade.
