Let's Refuel America - see fine print....

Chrysler's PR move called "Let's Refuel America" has a lot of fine print. I went to my dealership today to see if I can end my lease a little early so I can get in on this great deal, but seems that it is not such a great deal. This card/offer is not valid with the only two Jeeps that I would even consider, Compass or Patriot. Furthermore, you are not eligible for the gas card if you want to use your lease loyalty dollars or the cash rebates.

I knew it sounded too good to be true. Vespa anyone?

Thanks for researching this! I've been telling many people about it, and was considering buying a Chrysler, pending my job change. Not anymore!

yes, i'll take one vespa please!

A Vespa would be nice, but I would like a Hover-Round. They turn on a dime!

it does sound good til you read the fine print. my husband is looking at either a compass or patriot too and he gets the employee plan (he works for a steel supplier to the Big 3)...so we'd be screwed too. i'd rather have the rebates and discounts...

it's just a ploy to sell more cars.

Yeah, they're trying to cash in on the frustration that everyone is feeling over the gas crisis.

Boo.

seriously, i appreciate your update on the "fine print."

it appears that Chrysler was merely capitalizing on the fear of common-folk that paying for gas will mean no beer and ciggies.

Chili Dog, you can't really be that pretentious...can you? I really don't think that in a year that gas will be higher than it is right now, and if you fill up twice a week at 32 gallons, that's $32 x 52 weeks x 2 years, is only a savings of $3328, which is around the same amount of money that you would get with rebates and such...this is a sucker scam, and I'm sad that it is working.
