Top 10 Cash Back deals

As a consumer who works in the car industry, I’ve always been somewhat suspicious of Cash Back incentives. There is often a negative karma involved somewhere. That said, over the last couple of years the industry seems to be making some incredible offers. Over at they have a list of the Top 10 Cash Back deals, with the ranking being based on theier percentage off the MSRP.

#1. 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cam $3,500 27.79%

    Some of the numbers don’t add up… For example, the Pacifica would need an MSRP of $11,104 for $2,000 to equal 18% of MSRP, and the Grand Caravan would need an MSRP of $12,500.

    What am I missing?

    That being said, it appears that DCX is desperate to move cars. Of the ones listed, most are due for retirement (Lincoln LS and Town Car) or replacement (DCX Minivans, Pacifica). Some, like the Durango and Quad Cab pickups, are gas hogs that don’t sell well at $3/gal and up.

    I rented and actually liked the Pacifica as a family vehicle, but the 17 mpg average was just abysmal.
