    Hello to everyone!

    I’m new to this, so please forgive me for any mistakes. I never own a Dodge product, so I’m a little apprehensive. I sold my ’06 Camry and recently ordered a 2018 RT Plus Shaker from the dealership after putting a thousand dollar down. The vehicle has not arrived, but the price that was quoted to me from the dealership was the full retail price of $43,475. The Dodge online price is $41,725, which includes the Northeast 2018 Retail Bonus Cash NECJA1.

    My 1st question is: are the discounts and incentives at the dealerships discretionary?

    My 2nd question is: will changing the tires from 245/45/20 to 245/50/20 snow tires void the vehicle’s warranty?

    Thank you for any answer or advice! Hello to everyone!

    you better go back to your dealer and discuss these items you list,,, looks like they want to make more money off of you. than what you can deal for. don't let them bullshit you, if they start giving you a hassle then get your deposit back and go to a another dealer and bring that list,, they want to sell you a car they will what ever is possible to get you ion that car.


    and no I don't believe changing tire size will not effect your warranty, plus don't buy the extended warranty right off the bat, you have till the end of the 36/36 basic warranty to get that...

    I just bought a 2017 Ram back in June, I have until 4 years or 48,000 miles to buy the lifetime warranty, that is right out of my salesman's mouth, and I do trust him as this truck was #19 we have bought from them in the last 20 years or so.

    True about previous. And go to Chrysler.com call the agent and ask them they will tell you flat out if that dealer is ripping you off. They will let you all the details up front. And did you by it online or talk to there internet sales rep? Plus after 2 n 1/2 years mopar will contact you about getting there extended warranty so look them up too. I did an employee discount when I got mine and the dealer couldn’t say s#$&t about it and the internet sales rep was the only one who can work with you anyways. You will get billed for taxes and licenses plus deliver costs on top of there price so double check before you sign . Good Luck.

    Thank you again IntimidatorRT and Crazy55rider! My 2018 Max Steel RT Plus Shaker 6sp had finally arrived and I recently picked up the car from the dealership. No problems! Everything went perfectly. She’s parked in front of my Seal Grey 911 Turbo 6sp. I’m so happy to have both of these cars. I appreciate your advises, thank you.
