Dealership and TreadLightly

I have the TL membership and received my code already, took less than a week.

Strategically, I won't tell a dealer I have the discount to see if they will go under the invoice -1% TL price.

My question is if a dealer is told I have the TL, does the TL help them make $ from Chrysler? In other words, might they go -5% under invoice if they know they will get some money back because of the TL. Or, does the TL automatically set the price at -1% under invoice.

Just want to be ready.

On a $30000 purchase I wouldn't try to get too caught up in saving a couple hundred bucks, but that's just me. They have to pay the office staff, keep the lights on, etc. 1% under is a good deal, just be sure to watch for additional fees and add-ons that they'll try to stick on you. Use the term "out the door price" when negotiating so you both understand that's what you're talking about. They don't want to argue for hours any more than you do, and making the deal a win-win may help with future negotiations.

TL is part of the affiliate program, so they get 2% back from Chrysler. I would ask for the 2% under invoice. They still have hold back to make money. I would read thru the 2014 info thread. There is a lot of info from Pat that will save you money.

Thanks. I'm going to try and get a local dealership to match an offer from a more distant one. It's about $1000 difference between the special offer and the TL discount from the local dealership, so I'm going to see if they'll match or split the difference.

I just had one other dealership tell me they couldn't go below the TL program.

Not sure where you're located, but here in Texas, I used TreadLightly AND I got 5% +$100.

So, it can be done if you're located in the right area.

Good luck!
