So, story time.. . I originally went to a dealership to drive a Diesel Wrangler, to decide if one they had on the way would be the way we wanted to go. While there, found out they had one of the new 4Xe's, so we took it for a spin. Just absolutely loved it!! Found out they had a $7500 credit to boot, decided that was the way to go. So, decided to place the order with a different dealership, one I have had history with, purchased a vehicle from previously, do my services with, even worked for the parent company for a short while. All I knew when I ordered it, was the Tax credit. So, we ordered with the intent to lease, after all the websites showed you could lease a new Sahara 4Xe for like $279 a month with $4k down. I ordered one, price was just showing MSRP because they "couldn't guarantee any rebates or discounts would be available when it arrived", put $3000 down as that was what I was gonna put down to lower the lease payment anyway and left feeling pretty good. Joined this forum to do some more research about what I could expect out of our new wrangler. That is when I learned about the affiliate program. Found out we were eligible and registered under my wife's company, sent them the code, sales person said great, he would send to the GSM and again, felt really good that I would be saving more money on my Jeep figuring these guys would treat me right. Go in to get an update, discuss the numbers, and what my deal was gonna look like on paper, and that is when they told me I would not be getting the affiliate pricing. Told me they could probably sell the unit for over sticker, I signed the order at MSRP and that is what I would have to pay. I asked them, since they would not honor the affiliate price, and told me they could sell it easy, to just refund my deposit and let me buy from someone that would honor the discount. They said no, gave me the excuse that if they dont sell it to the person that ordered it, they get dinged by the manufacturer and could get denied for future orders. I tried asking if they would do any better on the price, and after going rounds for like 20 minutes, finally agreed to come 1%off MSRP, $591.75. They want to give me the higher MF rate on the lease, even though I have been told by other dealers I would qualify for the .00203 rate. Now, I am pretty sure I am forgetting some stuff in there, but I tried pleading with them, bringing up all that I had done through their dealership alone, all the business I had sent them, and the history I thought we had. None of it mattered, it was starting to look like I was just another payday to them. I really feel that they are taking this route because of the money I put down, and they know that if I walk away, they get paid for doing nothing!! I even asked for just a portion of my deposit back, no go. My question is, do you think I am completely in the wrong for being upset that they will not honor the affiliate price just because I did not begin the transaction with this information. I have always worked with dealers that were more than happy to help their customers save any money they could. I even had a dealership refund me money after a deal because we discovered a rebate we didn't know about. This whole ordeal has just felt like a big slap in the face from people I used to think considered me still part of the family (Employee). Go ahead and lay your opinions on me, I am just simply perplexed.. Thank you all!!
