Best Buying Experience EVER!

I'm in!
Bought a 2012 2 door S with Auto,Pwr Windows,Tinted glass,Hard Top, Black Forest Green, My 1st Jeep.
Drove about 40 miles out from Mass. to Ct. as I spoke with a nice young guy and thought the trip might be worth it, after being dissed by the local dealer.

I went to Papa's Dodge in New Britain Ct.....Holy Cows...Hugh place, with restaurant , Barber Shop, Kiddie Play Room, Race car Museum, Accessory Shop, ect. ect. Kind of like going into a Bass Pro Shop or Cabella's type store.
The young man I spoke with worked with me and found every discount he could, and beat the local dealer here in Mass. by $140.00 and added the soft top, Serious Radio and 2 Extra Keys. I'm not sure what the extras add up to but over a grand I think!
So any Mass, Ct, NJ, NY guys looking for a Great Dealership Experience I Highly reccomend them.
Oh & lunch was provided in the restaurant while the paperwork was done.

Barber shop?

Sounds like the Mall of America for Jeeps.

Congrats on the new rig.

Make sure they give you a full tank of gas! I bought my wife's 2011 Grand Cherokee Overland from there and left the lot with barely 1/4 of a tank. They said they don't fill them. However when I bought my 2011Wrangler from Pat at Fields in Chicago... I got a full tank.

You may be wondering how I bought a Jeep in Chicago and 1 in CT? I live in the mid-west for work, while my wife lives back in CT

I bought my Rubicon 3 months ago great for the sale. Not so good after. I found a couple of problems and the salesperson just kept blowing me off. Check every thing before you sign the papers.

No cast on his arm...he was very nice and left nothing out when going thru the features. I guess you only get 1/2 tank of gas but after all the extras they gave me I can live with that, I think the 2 extra keys alone are about $300.00!

Hey I am considering buying from them. Did you negotiate price or pay msrp and they threw in those extras? I am trying to figure out what's realistic to ask for when negotiating.

37 Olive... I worked with Jeromy, I highly recommend him, he may be able to find you discounts from your company if they have the Chrysler assocate program and other discounts like Tread Lightly.
Tell him the guy from Southwick Mass. recommended him!

Thanks for the recommendation. Care to share your build? Mine will be pretty standard. Working with Carl at the moment who has been very responsive to my emails.
