#489 of 506 My Crazy 2008 300c AWD 5.7 deal
Jan 20, 2009 (12:02 pm)
I just got the deal of a lifetime. My 2008 300c has a sticker price of 46k. I was looking for a dealer demo online and found one up in San Francisco. I couldn't believe the price when I saw it. This car only had 9k miles and was fully loaded. I mean to the hilt. Even the back seats are heated.
My final price 24,999.
Here is why these prices have gotten so low in California. I spoke with the dealer who told me that a bunch of Chrysler Dealers in Southern California have gone out of business. Here is the good part. They can only sell their inventories to other Chrysler dealers at auction.
Since most dealers are cash poor there are only a few dealers who can afford to buy up the inventory thus creating rock bottom prices. They were not only buying demo's but new cars as well. They showed me a few other cars that were new that they bought for .50 on the dollar.
I live in the Los Angeles area as was afraid of buying the car online but it was a snap. I made the deal on the phone, hopped a flight to San Fran. The dealer picked me up at the airport, took me to the dealership, filled out the paperwork and six hours later I was back in LA with my new car.
I would suggest to anyone who is doing this to make sure all your financing is done before you go. Also put a small down payment with your credit card. By doing this they can't sell the car out from under you. Also make sure they send you via email the official quote down to the last penny so you can have it in your hand when you get there. This will avoid any funny business by the finance dept.
I wish you the best of luck.
I will be sitting in my car watching cartoon network on my Sirus satellite TV if you need me.
#490 of 506 2009 300c AWD

i was recently given a quote of $36,499 for a 2009 300c AWD with luxury group II and protection group II packages included. according to the dealer the car is "fully loaded". i can also get 48 month zero percent financing. i was told that this was a "bottom line" price. this sounds pretty attractive to me. can i do better price-wise and if so by how much? are there any other things that i can negotiate that would be to my benefit.
thank you in advance for reading this and any information or advice given is appreciated.

Edmunds itself says $35,665 if the only options are luxry group and protection II. if there are other options then they are in the ballpark. the zero % financing makes that deal attractive. If you like the car, I'd take it.
#492 of 506 Purchase Attempt 2009 Chrysler 300C
May 02, 2009 (2:16 pm)
Because of the advertised Chrysler incentives and the federal tax program I decided to send out a few internet quote requests for a 300C. The online inventory showed one at the dealership in my city with everything I wanted (inferno red, genuine wood interior, fully loaded). Their internet quote came back with an excellent price ($8k under MSRP), so I set up an appointment to test drive the vehicle today.
I was surprised when I was told that Chrysler Financial is no longer writing any loans at all, so the zero percent financing advertised through May 4 is unavailable. I hadn't seen that announced anywhere. In fact, I came home and looked on the Chrysler Financial website to find they are still accepting applications in the space right below the "We are not in bankruptcy like Chrysler Corporation is......." announcement.
With excellent credit (no joke.....my rating is in the top 2% of nationwide scores) the dealership quoted me 7.99% for 60 months. My local bank is offering 5.49%.
I was offered $18,500 for my 2007 loaded Lincoln MKX. Edmunds and Kelly Blue Book both state a trade of approximately $24,500.
I am realistic when it comes to car buying and I know it can be somewhat of a game. I am also aware they aren't giving their inventory away. However, I wasn't expecting such an extreme attempt at screwing me over at this point in Chrysler's situation.
It's a beautiful car and I would definitely have considered driving home with it had the offer been reasonable.
#493 of 506 Any recent great deals on the 300C?
Jun 07, 2009 (10:00 pm)
We've been looking at the 300 C for about a month now. None of the dealerships seem too anxious to make a deal go through. We made 2 offers on one we wanted, and kept having to call them. We were trying to play hard ball, but they didn't want to even call us or counter-offer.
I know there are a lot of dealerships closing, I've seen many cars listed as "new" with the years being 07 and 08, much less even all the 09s. I'd think they would make some killer deals on a 2007 that's been sitting on the lot for 3 years!
We're going again tomorrow, so I'll update if we get a good deal. Is anyone else out there buying 300s?

A reporter from a finance magazine is looking to speak to consumers who purchased a vehicle and ended up with some options by the dealer at little or no extra cost. Please send your daytime phone number and the vehicle you own to ctalatiedmunds.com by Tuesday, June 16, 2009.

When I bought my 06 200 I wanted a Moon roof installed and i had already did my research and found the cost to be $900 , but the dealer told me it would be $1400. I asked about this & was told that there was two grades of moon roofs. So I accepted tis as the reason. After picking up my car after the roof is installed I decided to add a deflector so i went to the Company that installed the roof to get one, while there i asked about the moon roofs they install on this make/model car I got quite a surprised that they only install one. As you can guess I was angry and disappointed, but vowed never to reccomended this dealership to anyone.
