    Well I didn't end up with a New 2020, but a 2019 warlock...exactly like the one I had, Literally, same color, and everything with a few extras (bigger fuel tank, sunroof, bedliner, running boards, ram floor mats, mud flaps, Deezee tailgate assist) for a extra $15 per payment and 3 months deferred payments.

    It was a good experience, took a while to make the deal but in the end, I get more features for not much more, I got 3 months of breathing room, and I was only 6 months in so starting over isn't a huge deal. If your On the Island I recommend going and Talking to Nate at Nanaimo Chrysler...good guy.

    My dealer is doing similar things. Pretty much anything they can do to drum up business. Some pretty big discounts going on now. Some people are even getting 0% financing.

    My brother in law found a brand new 2018 (yes, 2018) Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. No idea how it sat this long, but it had 5 miles on it when he test drove it and put another 10 miles on it.

    My guess is that it being a 2018 means it WON'T apply for any of the current incentives. I did tell him to beat them down on price anyway, because its almost 3 model years old at this point.

    I got the same deal with deferred payments and 0% in 2014. I believe it's pretty normal when you finance through Chrysler. You typically lose rebates with this offer (they get their interest somehow)...

    yeah, they did offer the 0% but you don't get any rebates and then pay full pop for the vehicle, with mine I went from a 6.99 rate to 3.75 so overall it was worth it and as work is ....well I am not....having breathing room helps.

    Thankfully the Canadian Government is coming thru, it looks like I will qualify for their assistance so with the wife still working and the government coming thru as much as I will be a stay at home dad making no money, we won't be freaking right out.
    My son is 6 and doesn't fully get why he hasn't left the house much in almost 2 weeks...thankfully can get out in the yard and play but I know he just doesn't get why he can't see his friends...but a Dump run in Dad's truck is pretty fun

    IMHO Deferring payments is a financial mistake. It just puts the buyer further underwater as the asset now has 3 - 6 months of depreciated value yet the amount owed has not decreased. With vehicles, the asset depreciates significantly in the first year which makes the issue worse. If the buyer can afford the payment for the term of the loan, they should start making them on day one.

    Not a tough choice for me. I'm not giving up my lifetime warranty. I can mod the he'll out of my truck if it starts to bore me.

    I'm these uncertain times, delaying payments may be a life line for some.
