Sunroof not a accessory

I just came back from my dealer going over the paperwork for my new PCP R/T and I asked to get a sunroof and CAI for my mopar bucks, I was told that the sunroof is not really an accessory. I told them that any mopar part# is supposed to be qualified for the mopar bucks and they said no, they said that they might looking into having someone else do the installation and they might cover the cost. Does anyone know the number for the dodge incentive contact so I can have this situation taken care of.

OK this may be the one time the dealership is right. An accessory is pretty much a "bolt on" install. I don't think cutting a hole in your roof is the epitome of bolt on. I have to ask, why didn't you get your PCP with a sunroof from the get-go?

I too do no think so. I also think that ADDING a sunroof to a car is a complete mistake. I am not interested in ANYONES great experiences with aftermarket sunroofs. All I KNOW is that on a previous truck(Avalanche) of mine the factory sunroof had EXTRA bracing INSIDE the roof structure so it would not take away from the integrity of the vehicle. Therefore I would never do this to a car. Even the dealer agreed with me on not taking delivery of a truck I waited 6 weeks for. They had to order another one. It even said it right in their brochure. I would think every car has something to this effect, whether it's the drain tube, seals, or whatever.

Have to agree with the dealer on this one. The manufacturer offered a sunroof as an factory option, not an accessory. If the dealer is willing to work with you by taking the Mopar Bucks to pay for the aftermarket installation of a sunroof, they're going above and beyond for you.
And, I can't say I'm too fond of having an aftermarket sunroof installed after the fact. I just feel the factory does more for the trouble-free installation of a sunroof before final assembly, then most can do after the fact.

Not to pile on, but I agree with the dealer. Would be like expecting to use Mopar bucks to put the 6.1 in a RT.

Hate to say it....but I have to agree with the dealer also. A sunroof is a factory option not an accessory. Also, I would never consider getting an aftermarket sunroof installed. Too much can go wrong, and I have heard way too many horror stories about aftermarket units screwing up and leaking.

I called the Dodge incentive line and you guys are right, but my dealer is gonna see if they can have the sunroof put in and cover it themselves. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't getting a line of crap, so I am pleased that are legit!

I agree I don't want aftermarket I will ask them to install the factory sunroof and it least it will be correct for the car and the work will be covered by them, I will put up the money that they need to get it done! I go for the CAI and do the interior Katzkin's
