Who's a good dealer to not get abused on a trade in?

We just bought a Level 1 MSRP was 97460, wish we have gotten the level 2. Was looking at trading in our new 2023 TRX, 1 month old and 1600 miles in on a new 2023 Level 2 at Northgate Ram in Cincinnati, they are only offering me 85k and $500 off for being a 100% disabled veteran. I can't take that kind of hit, anyone know of a good honest dealer that won't try to jack me? They said that is the best they can do after reviewing auction prices and that's what they sell for. I find it hard to believe it depreciated $12,500 in one month and 1600 miles. Thanks in advance!

I did, still ate some cash but I got my Level 2 after a guy backed out of it. It was here in Nashville too, so I didn’t have to go far. I got them down another 3k from where we started. So I am happy. Of course they are listing my old level 1 for 100k, lol. Good for them if they get it. I am just happy I got one of my favorite colors with everything I wanted. I originally wanted red or blue and that is what I now have.

congrats on the new truck. Glad it worked out for you. I can’t believe how expensive these trucks have gotten.

I went to Ourisman CDJR in Woodbridge, VA, and had a great experience. Paid MSRP with no market availability markup. Great people to work with, Basil Moye was my sales guy
