    Sounds stupid, but if your buying it from the dealer don't you get the standard warrenty?

    I bought my 06 crew cab diesel for 33,500.00 out the door in 06 it is a duramax allison. If the dealler wants to move the truck they can. But, it is a chevy and it will have it's problems.

    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.

    If that price is for real, jump on it. I love mine, and my buddy has 5 of them(all 2008's). Cant go wrong.
