    It’s about 5% ?

    sucks , but thanks to Brandon everything is up substantially.
    If you want and need the truck , you gonna have to pay it , if you don’t someone else will happily do so to get the only new truck they can find .

    15k is peanuts. Loads from Wa to NY are 13K and more. Just run two of the loads and call it, y’all nickel and diming a few K? Shoot get a quote on one of your kids braces lately? 15 k is nothing special anymore.

    If the OP is really upset about it then they should just buy the truck and list it on Truckpaper right away and make a nice profit on it.
     
    Oxbow, larry2903, Bean Jr. and 3 others Thank this.

    Sucks but just gotta eat the bullet and take the write off.

    Might ask em for a free snow broom? Hell I dunno? Some free service extras for the inconvenience maybe.

    A good new snow broom is great though.
     
    c.w Thanks this.

    Customer Loyalty taken to a new level. Manufacturer Loyalty to a new Low. I’d seriously rethink my next purchase. Fool Me once....
