Ready to Purchase Now...Help

I'm looking for a dealer in the NY/NJ area to purchase a Ghibli SQ4. Already approved with Chase Tier 1 but current dealer is playing hardball and not giving a discount on MSRP.

Which dealer?

Mainline in Philly area is excellent ... I use them exclusively for all and make the 90 minute trip. I originally used the Experience Group (Maserati of Manhattan) which was OK when I got mine in their former Bergen County location.

Thompson in Doylestown, PA has also provided some good deals.

The World Wide Maserati and Maserati of Central NJ didn't want to deal when I bought mine.

Do you have a contact at Mainline who could help me?

You can check with Eric at eblake@motml.com he is their business manager.
It's Maserati NA who holds the purse strings and every few months in different regions they will move inventory to make numbers but at a minimum you can get some pricing or get noticed of the next deal period.

Paul McClain is also fantastic as their service manager. I use them over the Maserati dealer 20 minutes from my house ... just because of their experienced staff and Paul's proactive approach to caring for my car. In fact, I will be there later this week doing my annual service and using their Maserati loaner.

Why would you get your credit ran for approval if you haven't even negotiated a deal with a dealer...?

The deal was negotiated. However when presented here to find out if the the deal was good or not it was determined that the deal was not good. It was suggested that I should have received a much better discount than what was negotiated by the dealer.

Dealer discounts seem to vary by quarter and region - I only got a 6K discount off of MSRP on my wife's Ghibli in Central OH - seems that the west coast definitely has aggressive discounting in my research but then youre paying for transpo

Check out Bennett Maserati in Allentown PA. Their site is advertising $16k - $18k off MSRP on almost all of their 2017 Ghibli SQ4s.

Maserati of Anaheim,Ca. seems to list best prices and large inventory along with Tampa! Westlake Ca. is also known for big stock and big deals. I gave my local dealer a chance last year to match a car from Anaheim and they said no with a vieled threat as to future loaner cars. They are a little better this year but I'm not in market till I see updates.
