I recently signed a 2022 Ram Laramie in Illinois: Cook County

MSRP: $67,170
Out the door after dealer incentive: $62,670
Trade in: $14,000
DAS: 1st month, & Doc fees: $1,100
Monthly payment: $529
Term: 36/10

How did I do?

~$950/mo sounds very high for this. Are you in Chicago proper?

Northwest Burbs, just outside of Chicago

Not a good deal? What would have been more reasonable?

I struggled, but basically gave away a 2013 explorer over KBB that was just sitting in my driveway we never drove.

I recall seeing some of the brokers having $65kish rams for $700/mo ish because they were 11-14% off msrp and no mf mark up.

Was the trade in applied as Downpaymet/cap reduction?

I am in KY (so different tax situation) but my $66xxx Ram Laramie is $486/month with $1000 due at signing through @Clutch

$529 a month with a $14K trade in sounds, how shall I put this…atrocious.

My very first lease was a 2000 Accord, MSRP $21K for the low low price of $350 a month with $3000ish upfront.

We all do stupid things and then learn from them.

Every time I grind a dealer down I am paying them all back for having been raped as hard as I was back then.

Very helpful to take the long view of things…some lessons more painful than others, but you can balance them out over time.

Beyond awful. Is there a cooling off period for you. My 64k 22 ram 36/12 is 499 with $1600 at signing.

For a bit higher of a monthly payment, I was driving my $84,xxx TRX.

That payment is very high for that truck. Please come to LH before signing your next deal.

If they cut you a check for 14k it’s a good deal :man_shrugging:t2::man_shrugging:t2:

Damn you waited 3 years to post and decided to do it after, not before, you leased a new car?
