  1. I gave a deposit because they wanted it. I was walking out and they asked for it. While we work through the deal and I think about. I can't expect them to hold it for weeks. I told them it was ok to give me my deposit back. He just couldn't process it until Monday. I feel that was BS. It was just his way of still trying to keep me in the deal. Needless to say it's sold, no big deal. My only gripe was again was going on their word saying as long as I had a deposit on it, it was mine. So "technically" it should be mind until Monday. I'm really arguing semantics here. It's probably a blessing, I'd like to drive the 6.2 and 3.0 diesel before making my decision.
  2. Little bummed. Dealer sold the truck out from under me today. It's not all their fault. I did tell him I was holding off right now given the current issues we have going on. The sales manager said when I'm ready they will be there. They weren't going to bug me anymore. Then I got a call at noon from them again. Saying they wanted to get this done. I called back a few hours later (that's my fault) and he said "oh sorry, it actually sold since I left you the message". Yet they still have my deposit and told me with that deposit no one can buy it. That's where I get mad.
  3. Theyve offered me $45k for my trade. Thats right in the middle higher end of kbb value. Selling privately Id need at least 47,800 to cover the tax benefit of the trade.
  4. Right now, the dealer called me and GM is doing zero for 84 months with a 3 month defferal. I'd lose the 6500 rebate. 84 months and a deferral doesn't interest me. If I could get the rebate and zero. But I won't spend 6500 in interest over the life of the loan. So I'd rather the rebate.
  5. I've been love with the 2019+ Trail Boss and AT4 models. Cooled seats make the AT4 overall winner. Stopped in at a local dealer and they had a beautiful Pacific Blue Metallic AT4 sitting there fresh off the truxk. It hadn't even been PDI'd yet. MSRP on the truck with destination is $59,090. They're at $48,090. That's with a 3,000 dealer discount and 8,000 in rebates. This seems great to me. Curious what other feel? They're offering me a crap trade though and telling me the price includes the 2,000 "trade assistance". I'm think trade assistance is a bogus thing. If I remove their 2,000 bonus, were $5k apart on the trade. I'm basing the trade on similar deal with a Ram dealer that offered me 5k more and there was 12k in rebates. I understand it's an apples to orange comparison. I may just hold out and see how desperate they get over the coming weeks due to beer virus going around. Also, looking at this sheet. What is the amount the red arrow is points at?
  6. New dealer new deal 2015 Crew, 3.42, all star package. 45.5k. 10k off. So 35.5k sale price before trade. Going tomorrow to get my trade appraised.
  7. Ok...so one GM dealer came down $9k off stickers. $44,105 sticker, selling price of $35,135. They're offer my $17k on my trade. If the truck was a 2015 and they gave me $19k on the trade, I'd be all in. To be continued.
  8. I expected 4 or 5k off and a lousy trade. This dealer just bought the dealership and said they want as many trucks driving around in the area as they can. Plus they own a Subaru dealer up in NH I believe.
  9. I don't want turn this into a brand war. Lets focus on the Silverados right now. Finally drove the Silverado. Would like to drive it again. Although, I do wish the steering telescoped. New dealer and their first stab at numbers were "ok" still too low on the trade and only 7k off on the truck.
  10. Of I was seeing 12k-14k on the hood of the 14 Silverado I'd be driving it home today. I'm going to try a different dealer. They sent me pricing on a 14 leftover that had "extra rebates" and they took 6k off the msrp and I'm getting a miserable trade.
  11. No thank you on the Tundra. Tech is much too dated and I have to like the styling. I liked the 07-13 Tundras styling, but I can't accept the 14 & 15's. Far too ugly for my taste.
  12. Well, I've moved beyond seeking out used trucks and I'm now cross shopping '15 Silverado's and F150. '14 F150s are out of the question, I did like the 15. But a '14 Silverado is enticing. I may be taking a gamble on the issues it could have. But that's what a warranty is for and the lemon law here in Mass. I know every truck no matter the brand will have issues. So I'm not worried there. I just want a good deal on a nice truck. So my question is...how much at a minimum should I expect in rebates? Currently I have $9k off a 2015 F150 XLT Crew with a strong trade. The '15 SIlverado has about $7k in rebates, they're not as strong on the trade and the truck is about $3k msrp cheaper ($45,500). End result, OTD cost is within a $1k of each other. Now I'm considering the '14s.
  13. It all started looking into a used 2014 Silverardo Crew LT. This truck had 14k miles but was fairly bare on options. Asking price was $27,999. It sold before I could get to the dealer. Next up was another used, same this as the first truck, but asking price was $30,800. Then I started adding in the things I would want like a locker, back up camera, etc. The list goes on. So I started venturing down the path of new. I've drive the 2015 Silverado and the 2015 Ford F150. I have both dealers pitting against each other at the moment. The Silverado MSRP is $45,455. They're discounting it to $38,815 They're crushing me on my trade. They're they $3k lower than the Ford Dealer. The ford is $48,475 with $9k in discounts So it's $39,475. Both have extremely similar packages. I like how both drive and I've one owned each brand before.
