I've never heard of someone buying a new car and NOT getting a full tank of gas, that's BS. Next time you purchase a vehicle tell the salesperson right before you are about to sign you're expecting a full tank of gas, then have them write it on the contract. I guarantee you'll get your full tank.

I got a full tank of gas when I bought mine. Keep in mind gas in Canada is over $5 a gallon so it was probably a $100 value.

After being told I had to rent a car when I went in for warranty work last week I decided to go to another dealer. Customer service was very helpful

Bought mine in December and they wouldn't let me leave without a full tank. Seriously... I tried grabbing the keys from him to head out (was a bit excited I guess) and he wouldn't let me. Told me he had to go fill the tank up first.

What a shitty dealership you went to. No excuse for that.

I ended up with two full tanks of gas... But it wasn't worth the trouble.
When they came out with my new '12 after washing, paperwork, etc, I spotted a large scrape in the passenger door. The porter came out and gave it a shot, but it wasn't happening. They tried to rush me out with the promise of a proper polishing the following Saturday, so I reluctantly agreed, mostly because I didn't trust a stressed-out porter taking a wheel to it at that point.
Well, when I called the following Friday to confirm the service, I found that the salesman had already been fired, and after explaining the situation (for the 3rd time) to the service manager, he had the b***s to ask me if I had a due-bill for the work!
Anyway, to make a long story short, I blew it off and fixed the scratches myself. But I did have to return anyway because I wanted to bring them a spare key fob for the truck I had traded in. After letting them know how chicken-*** i thought this was, they tried to butter me up with movie tickets. I refused, but then they offered a tank of gas...
Just goes to show you that it's always something!

I cannot remember how much gas I got. all I remember is I went and ate BBQ ribs after. Probably looked like Jeffery Dahmer leaving the rib joint with red stuff smeared on my meat laden $hit eaten grin.

Purchased my sport in March. While I was signing the paperwork they took the Jeep to the service department to have it detailed. They never mentioned filling the gas tank and to be honest I didn't expect them to. I was surprised to find they had the filled the tank. Either way it would not be a deal breaker but I thought it showed a certain level of customer service. Yours did not.

Same for me.. we were running late for our Christmas party and they insisted on filling it up...

BTW, isn't there a three day right of rescission on vehicle transactions? walk in and tell them you want your old one back and that you found a better deal.

Only got a half tank in my 13 jkur a couple weeks ago.

I didn't notice until I was driving away and I thought it was a little strange....only new car purchase I have made w/o a full tank.

I wasn't going to complain as I got 3% under invoice and Mopar slush Matt's thrown in with the to discount

This is specific to each state but most people think there is one when in fact there is not a "cooling off" period. Some dealers will offer this but there is usually a ton of red tape and rules you must adhere to within the 3 day period. Most people here in MD believe there is a right to rescind but there is not. Not sure about the OP's state.

My '13 Sahara came with a full tank of gas. It's funny because when I mentioned that to my husband his response was they're supposed to fill the gas tank. I guess it depends on the dealer.

My dealer made me wait to take mine home while they filled it up and washed it.

I used to work part time in a gas station during high school (late 60's). It was next to a large British car dealership. We had a constant steam of salesmen coming for a $1's worth of gas. Most of the time they would have a potential customer with them. The salesman paid for the gas ... not the dealership which seemed strange to me.

The best part for us was that they ran out of gas fairly often and we would get a service call out of it. Many times I would arrive for a service call and drive by an angry customer walking back to the dealership. What a stupid way to lose a deal!

This...

As a matter of fact, as we were doing the final walk-around after the paper work was done, the salesman noticed the tank was only at 3/4, went took it and topped it off.

Back then $1 probably bought 3-4 gallons worth.

We bought our Sahara this past New Year's Eve. I don't remember how much fuel it had when we drove it home but I don't think it was full. I know I would have noticed if the gauge showed close to empty. At 7:00pm on New Year's Eve we all just wanted to finish things up and get out of there.

Dang...I'd be p.o.'d if they didn't fill the tank, or tried to charge me for it. I've walked out on deals for less. But no gas, that's a new low I wouldn't accept.

If you are buying a new vehicle and can't put your own gas in the tank, your shouldn't be buying it.

I have always gotten a full tank, didnt matter if it was a car, truck, jeep, motorcycle, quad. Ive never gotten less than full. I dont get that a dealer wants to lose business over 50 bones, but I guess they do. Maybe its me but I dont care if I hurt their feelings or make a scene Im there to do business and if they want mine they need to pony up. Its really just common courtesy.

I'm not trying so sound like a jerk here.........but: For the people that complain about it not being right for the dealership to provide a full tank of gas because they are being cheap, if you traded in a vehicle did you fill it up for them or did you only put enough gas to get it to the dealership in order for you to save money?

Bought mine used, test drive had 1/4 tank, upon delivery they had topped it off. I was pretty shocked and happy they did it. Good unaffiliated dealer.

Mine had more gas in it than the new one they gave me.

They are going to detail it when they put the soft top on for me.

I haven't gotten any responses yet from Chrysler but I'm guessing it's because it's the weekend.


I guess I can't complain too much. I drove my 2012 for 20,000 miles, traded, got a brand new vehicle and it only really costs me about two grand.

I might be a jerk but I'd never give a dealer a trade-in with much fuel in it.

Dealers always screw you on the trade-in and it's not like they're going to give you money for the gas in it.

I also rented a u-haul with half a tank in it, was told it had to have half a tank when i brought it back, i only needed to drive it like 20 miles (literally moved 3 miles away) and it was still on half a tank so i didnt put fuel in it. Is that wrong?

However, I've rented cars and put too much gas in them before returning them and they paid me back for the extra fuel i put in at a higher price than i paid for the gas. Too bad car dealers dont do that one. "Well, your trade in's worth $200, but we see there's $50 in gas in it, so we'll pay you $250".

WTF? You only paid $2000 to drive a car for a year? That's a hell of a deal. Am I reading this wrong?

I'm starting to wish i could sell my JK and buy a CJ7 and put $300 in mods in it every month instead of paying a payment. Maybe i could...haha.

Maybe it's just me, but that is the biggest slap in the face I've had in a while. I just spent $30,000 and they can't fill up the tank?! I told the guy if the sale wasn't finalized I would have walked.

I'm so mad right now......

Sign of hard times ....
