Negotiating for Brand New vehicle, after being sold an unsafe vehicle

Asked by Feb 26, 2016 at 02:17 PM about the 2015 Chrysler 200 S

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Hello, Everyone. Less than a week a go I purchased my first vehicle. It is a
used 2015 Chrysler 200s with less than 25,000 mi on it. It's been less than
a week, and I have lots of problems with this vehicle, after being assured
that there was nothing wrong with it. it has been back to the dealership
twice. it has died on me in the middle of the highway,almost causing me to
crash, and there's a faint burning smell, etc. My dealership says there's
nothing wrong with it, they have been extremely rude to me and have acted
like my problems are an inconvenience and trying to convince me to drive
an unsafe vehicle, while they find the time to meet with me. i want to know
if I am able to negotiate a brand new vehicle (2016 Chevy Malibu 2nd
generation $23,000 w/o tax). The Chrysler is $18,000 w/o tax.

From the same dealer? Maybe. But they more than likely made a bunch of money at 18000 on the Chrysler and won't be able to give you what you paid for it on trade in towards a Malibu.

your problem with the 200 dying while driving is probably do to a faulty wiring harness, there has been a recall issued. the dealership should be aware of this and should replace it for free, that is if you are dealing with a Chrysler dealership and not some cut rate used car dealer.
