I've been wanting an RT Classic for a couple years now and I've been keeping tabs on the pricing. Last week I saw a new 2010 RT Classic with a $39k sticker priced at $30.5k on a dealers website. When I called about it, the salesman said it was already in financing but he could find another RT with the same specs. He also said that since I lived in a different region, the pricing was different due to dealer incentives and quoted me $33k. So I called a local dealer and he gave me the same $33k price on the same car that he would bring in for me.
First question, is there really that much difference in dealer incentives and regions to swing the price $2k-$3k?
Second question, I got a call from a friend last night who said he can get me at least friends and family discount, and possibly employee pricing. How does that pricing work using the sticker price or invoice price? I'm trying to figure out the pricing, rebates, incentives, etc. so I know if I'm getting a good deal or if the dealership is not telling me the full story.
Any info, insights and tips is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
