    I will be paying for my car with a deposit, which means I wasn't able to order or put a deposit down. The dealership in my city said that they were going to hold the car for me until my check cleared (this week). Well, when I went to go talk to the Manager today, guess what car wasn't on the property anymore. My soon to be...

    Well, now I'm heartbroken. Had my heart set on this car for 12 months, through surgeries, recovery, and pretty much hell... and now it's gone. Which brings me to my desperate post...

    Does anyone know of any dealerships that have one currently THAT IS NOT ON HOLD OR SOLD. I will fly out, sign papers and drive it back across the country if I need to; i'm in central New Mexico. Any price, even 20K over, don't care right now. I'll deal with that later. I'm going to try and contact dodge and see if they know of any dealerships with unsold units. Thank's all, I'm afraid I may not get the car I've been set on since my rollover and it's pretty upsetting.

    Everything happens for a reason, right?

    There are lots of them on Cars.com.
    Mostly at dealerships and marked up.

    I wish! If I could have been on a plane and over there that quick, maybe! Ha. This is frustrating. And to think buying one of these damn things would be easy.

    I agree with others, I'd just start dialing the phone from the listings on cars.com.

    Unsolicited advice incoming
    -Obviously don't tell them you'll pay anything, just ask for the price and try and talk them down a few grand. They won't budge probably, but they'll expect that.
    -Don't tell them you're 19, they won't take you seriously even though you're very serious.
    -Ask if they'll take a telephone credit card deposit to hold the car until you can physically get there.
    -Discuss how you'll be paying beforehand and make sure there is agreement on it.
    -immediately walk, run, crawl, fly to get the car as fast as you can before another buyer shows up and offers more money, which is probably what happened to your first car.

    And he'll get you one at MSRP....because hey, they're all over the dealer lots and people are picking them up all the time every week. In fact, there are so many of them he just can't quit his job to make a list of all of them for the people here............

    That is terrible news Shroyer. Not the first time I've heard it. Go to the Dodge site and search for available cars. Put in 200 + mile radius and your colour choice. Then start emailing and calling. This is how I found mine at msrp. With the current market I'm sure you will get your cat for no more than $10K over. Good luck.
