Well This Changes Things

Because Saturday was the last day of the month, I decided to take a ride to the Chrysler dealer to see if I could wrangle a deal on a Town & Country, just for comparison’s sake with the Routan. Before I sought out a salesman, I took a few minutes to play around in the floor model. The Town & Country is nowhere near as luxurious inside as the Routan, but it is loaded with uber-practical features like a power lift gate and satellite radio — all standard on the Touring model.

I was absolutely astounded when the Chrysler salesman — in the first thirty seconds we talked — gave me a quote almost two hundred dollars a month cheaper than the Routan. He didn’t make me sit in his too-hot cubicle while he talked with his manager; he didn’t present me with a ridiculously high number he would do me a favor by lowering later on. And not only that; he also told me Chrysler was announcing new incentives on Tuesday and to call him then, because he could likely give me an even lower price.

When I asked about adding on remote start, he told me it was part of an inexpensive package that also includes a sliding center console (one of the things I loved about the Routan) and built in window shades — great for keeping the sun out of James’s eyes. He said it would be no problem to locate a black Town & Country with the remote start package. No problem. How refreshing!

So, I’m going to call this guy on Tuesday and see what he has to say. I am looking forward to a much more positive experience than I had at the VW dealership.
