Not sure if this is a good question to ask but I just bought my R/T 2 weeks ago and I was told by 3 different dealers they were not "able/allowed" to negotiate price. I understand these cars sell themselves and they mostly work on commision but...? I did get all rear windows tinted and 1 detail pkg for buying the car so thats not too bad. They are also throwing in 3 tanks of gas. Total list price on my car with all the bells and whistles besides heated seats and u conect was 27,740 CDN. Does this sound right as far as other prices from across the country?

not sure what the local R/Ts have been going for but i got my SXT for $15,885 before extended warrantee and the tax, title and license. i think it came to just about $18,800...

Maybe you should have ordered before the boom. I ordered mine in May, but had to wait four months for delivery due to the colour choice. I know that two weeks after I ordered mine the sales guy called me (to chat) and said he had just gotten off the phone telling people that ordered their Caliber that they cant get one after all. I guess Dodge is allowing only a certain amount of Calibers per dealership.
Anyways, I have an SXT, Fully loaded, Heated leather, 9 speaker system, all the gagets and gauges, U connect, Chill Zone, 9 Volt plug in, (absolutely needed the luminated cup holders) every option, every package you could put onto this puppy. The only thing I do not have is AWD, because I have never driven an AWD and did not want to start now.

I did go back and forth between two dealerships, as my husband stated to one of the sales men "She is going to buy this car, that is 100% certain, however she will buy it from who ever kisses her ass more" My husband knows me well.

I paid just under $23,000. I am in Manitoba, thats CAD.

Tammie-Lee (and others)...

DCX is building 3 vehicles in Belvidere. the Patriot, the Compass and our beloved Caliber. they can build ALL three but only ONE at a time. they are running one model for a couple of weeks then another model then the third before starting the cycle over again...

ALSO, because DCX isnt selling too many trucks, they have told the dealers that if you want your Calibers, you WILL take a truck or two for every Caliber you request...

they also have had a of couple issues with the launch of the new assembly lines there...

I bought mine off the lot rather than try to order one. Got a fully loaded SXT with the only items not on it being the heated and leather seats. Sticker was $21,000USD, paid $19500 which included the $500 rebate. I love it!!

I have heard trucks are outselling all other vehicles. SUV's such as the Durango are not selling so well. Caliber allotment is tied to how many comparable cars such as the Neon they have sold in prior years. I did read the article regarding dealers having to accept more Durango and Dakotas.

Hi Santos, my R/T with all of the options including the heated leather front seats was 27,900 plus 14% HST This was on the road and included mud guards, rubber Caliber floor mats, 2 Dodge hats and the police etching for vehicle theft ID. Original price was 28,800 but did get them to drop slightly. Was also told that the price is generally not negotiable due to the high probability of selling them. Hope this helps!!!

Yes that does help thx. Its not that I was worried about how much I spent, I still say I got alot of car for the dollar. Just wanted to know what prices are like across the country and what not. Glad to hear you got a bit of a discount but could ya blame them for not trying to get every penny? :)

Stopped short & bought

Couldn't find a CVT in new Toyota Yaris or Honda Fit & Nissan Versa was too much money & too many do dads. But found a Dodge SE Caliber with 2 liter, A/C & CVT for $14,000. I love looking & comparing cars, but quit comparing & bought from my Dodge dealer 2 miles away.

Am going to sign papers for my Caliber tomorrow.
MSRP was $21675. Talked them down to $21000. (this was a suprize, figured because of popularity, there would be no haggling)

My original sticker price was just under $19,000.00. My grandfather is a retired Chrysler employee so I got Employee pricing on my Caliber. I payed $16,272.00 for a Black SXT, Heated seats, 6 disk CD changer, Alloy wheels & Luxury Floor Mats. Thanks Grandpa!
