Both have given my quotes for my hellcat. Koons has 899 dealer fee mark doge is 444. However price difference with the same options is 700 more at mark dodge. Plus, mark dodge will not price protect the current 1k rebate from dodge for hellcat incentives. Koons advised they would honor the 1k rebate at time the order is placed, and if additional rebates they will apply those at time of delivery. Anybody have pos/ negative experiences with either dealer.. at the end of the day koons is 1700 cheaper with the rebate and price difference and only 200 miles further…. I just don’t want any hidden fees/ other surprising items when I pick up car (if it gets built)
As far as the sales price goes koons is offering 6 below invoice and mark dodge is offering 5 below invoice (from what I hear)
So yes koons will be cheaper before you account for doc fee. The difference in doc fee is about $500.
Each percentage point below invoice is equivalent to $700-800, so in theory it should be a net difference of a few hundred dollars when you account for the doc fee.
You can lock in incentives at time of ordering through any dealer, just notify mark dodge that you want to lock in current incentives, it's an option box when an order is placed in their internal system.
I have heard positive and negative about koons, mark dodge from what I have seen is new to the massive discounts for ordering and I have heard nothing but good things about them.
Personal point, I'm not a fan of koons because of their shady back door deal with a broker called lease companion, I lease all my cars and was helping my buddy with ordering a car and leasing it, chapman wasn't offering the deal I got when I ordered so I went to koons and was extremely disappointed, as koons is forcing people to go through a broker who charges a fee and doesn't give the 6 below invoice either, so I ended up sending him to mark dodge, I believe he got it ordered in April.
If I were you I would go with whoever works out to be the best deal for you, but it's not a $1700 difference like you think it is, it's more like a few hundred bucks and the question of protection on the $1000 incentive.
