Nice Stu actually that is all a good call I didn’t think of any of that. So you were able to get him down a good amount . I was looking at a left over Chevy the other night . Wasn’t sure what I could get them down to.I bought it at Ron Bouchard Chrystler Ram in Fitchburg MA. I searched all over the North East looking for a left over. This was the only one I could find that met my needs. The sticker price was $44,725, but it was listed at $37k, and then they had a "sale price" of $35k. I'm not convinced this dealer has better prices than any other dealer, they just happened to have a left over that fit my needs, I think that's why it worked out in my favor. But I will say the buying process here, though still painful, it was a much better experience than I have had anywhere else. The truck didn't have a receiver hitch on it, I was able to negotiate including one into the deal.
I was going to buy a slightly used truck, but the used car market is through the roof right now; as an effect of COVID the supply and demand for used cars was very high, as the new car manufacturers had shut down production. They are selling used trucks for pennies below the price of new. For that reason i wanted to go new. Now that the car manufacturers are ramping back up, and expected to be back to normal by the end of 4th quarter, it is expected that there will be a used car market crash by the end of December, into early next year. Also contributing, there are hundreds of thousands of lease cars that were not turned in during the pandemic due to dealers being shut down. All these cars will soon hit the used car market. When the unemployment stimulus stops it is predicted that car repos will go through the roof; these cars will enter the used car market. On top of that, because people aren't traveling as much, the big rental car companies are dumping their fleets. Hundreds of thousands of used cars are about to flood the market, which will cause prices to come down. If you want to buy a slightly used car, i suggest waiting until the end of the year or early next year.
