Message #2 was probably removed by one of the hosts since it was posted by someone trying to sell cars at discounted rates. I'm sure that's a violation of the "Rules of the Road."
Now, back to Prices Paid & Buying Experience! I'd be interested to hear if anyone's been hit with an additional dealer mark-up on their new 300. I think the 300 Series is a home run for Chrysler, now let's just hope the dealers don't waste the opportunity!

These dealer added markups are pissing me off. Actually, I don't know what's worse....the dealer markups or the moron's that pay it. I can't find any dealers in Nor. Cal. that will budge from their $5k added markups. I asked a salesman if they would be willing to sell for MSRP (still a ripoff!) and his reply was , "just sold one for $5k over, so the answer is Nope!!" Needless to say the guy was a complete pompous putz and I will never do business there. Oh well the search continues. Anyone in Northern California please post your purchasing experience.

Thanks for the info. I will check out Burlingame.
#8 of 506 Fair Deals at Lithia in Burlingame CA
Apr 25, 2004 (6:21 am)
(THIS IS EDITED DUE TO RULES)
I just bought a 300C Magnesium at MSRP from a Lithia Chrysler in Burlingame, CA.
I've been looking all over the Bay Area and most places were charging $2000-$8000 over MSRP. Lithia was at $2K over MSRP but they wanted a sale and I bet you could get the next one at or near the same price. Bought the car this afternoon and it's sitting in my driveway.
The salesperson was ------- and SHE was by far the most knowledgeable salesperson I've yet encountered at a Chrysler dealership--and I've been to about five or six in the area.
For once I found a salesperson who knew more about the car than I and was willing (along with HER manager) to make a sale. I told them I would sing their praises and I am and will continue to anyone who asks (this behavior needs to be rewarded). They are not a five star dealer (according to website) but they offered much more by way of knowledge and willingness to sell me a car at a fair price for all parties.
CALL them today or tomorrow and get --- to set you up with the next cars that roll in--they have one blue Touring on the lot at this time.
Good luck, and keep shopping.

Why don't you ask for some quotes through the internet even if you have to go outside CA? You will be able to get 300, 300C for under MSRP. Even if you bought a one way air fare ticket to the East coast where you CAN get a deal and drove it home, doing some sight seeing in your great new car, it's not going to cost you anywhere near the price you pay in CA. Enjoy the trip. I'm sure you can get a deal without having to come to the East coast.

I called Burlingame but apparently tom you bought the last one they had.... Searched a couple more dealers in the area only to encounter idiotic salesman that wouldn't budge from $7000 dealer added markups. And I quote,"We've sold one a day at this price, we're not budging on the price at all". So, apparently there are plenty of people that don't mind throwing thousands of dollars away. Hard to believe. I am going to search out of state, and have one shipped in as I don't have the time to drive across country...although I would like to do that some day.
