Back to the issue, If the dealer gives a full warranty and you drove it and thought it was okay why not? Hard to beat at that price.
I apologize as well Johnny, did not intend to be a High-Jack of thread.

Thank you for the info stuvcorp.

You sign the papers on the truck then the dealer turns around and does something you could end up owing alot more than you bargained for.
If he is looking at buying a brand new truck for his business, I'm sure he has his stuff together enough to read any "fine print" that might be there. There is not to much a dealer can hide on a deal when it comes to how much your paying them for the truck. Esp if your writing a check for it.

That's my thought exactly. If the dealer puts $23,000 on a piece of paper, then how can he change that at the final stages? Maybe I'm missing something. The only thing that has made a slight difference in the price in the past is when they add taxes, and that's expected.

We paid around $36,000 last summer for one, we worked them for 2 months, they would not go any lower with 0% financing. That is a deal.

As far as them putting something in there, you'd be surprised how they slip little processing fees in there and such, I'm sure the truck is new, but as one poster stated read everything, and if nothing else have an attorney look at the paperwork.
