At this point in time the dealership will deduct for what they Anticipate the recall will cost them and any down time that it will stay on their lot. I am presently working with my dealership for a trade up and it sounds like FCA has given them some leeway, will know shortly the details with detailed the numbers.I have an email from the Ram dealer that I bought my 2020 Ram from that says FCA told them they could not sell a truck with an open safety recall and the EGR recall is a safety recall. I have been negotiating with FCA, so far unsuccessfully, for reimbursement for the loss in value onthe trade due to the recall since I ordered the truck before the recall and took delivery adter the recall. In those discussions FCA confirmed that they had told their dealers not to sell any Ecodiesels with the EGR recall open. That said I see the dealer has it listed for sale on his website now but it does say one open recall on the ad. I need to ask the dealer what is going on since he used the excuse of not being able to sell it to reduce the trade allowance.
My point here is.......if they tell a buyer that the truck you just purchased has had all the open recalls performed and there are none outstanding, when in fact we know the EGR recall (Safety Recall) is still outstanding because the parts will only be released months from now...... then they are defrauding the buyer as well as taking a huge risk if that truck catches on fire and someone is hurt or worse. This dealer is a shyster willing to take the risk for a few thousand dollars profit.Ultimately what they are doing is fraud and they could be exposing themselves to huge liability.
I hope their sales suffer! We can’t trade in because of the overpriced crap they sold us. Fire In A Truck (Fiat).I noticed fwiw that Elk Grove dodge is advertising eco diesels again at $18k off. And not long after the recall dropped they had pulled the ads so I’m thinking something has changed
