Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep dealers have taken an interesting approach to moving leftover 2006 inventory off their lot. Visit now, and you just might be able to land a great deal on a “semi-used” vehicle. Here’s how the Detroit News explains it:
“Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep dealers can use new vehicles as loaners for test-drives or for customers who need a car while theirs is in service.
In the past, dealers have had to use a vehicle as a loaner for three months before selling it as used. Slicing that requirement to one day allowed Chrysler to count the vehicles as retail sales while dealers were able to move the outdated cars and trucks out of their new car lots, where they might dampen interest in newer models.”
Good deal maybe, but all ya’ll
know first-hand have heard how well them loaners get treated, right? Buyer beware!
