Default Buy one get one free car (Dodge Ram)

A newspaper advertisement for a Miami car dealership reads more like a coupon for bags of potato chips: "Buy one, get two!"

The ad speaks to the desperation of car dealers as Big Three auto manufacturers beg Washington for billions in bailout dollars to combat sales that keep dipping to all-time lows.
"The first thing people think when they come in is, 'It's a fake ad. It's a normal car dealer ad. It's a gimmick.' But it's not," said Ali Ahmed, sales manager at Rob Lambdin's University Dodge in Miami.
To be fair, there is a catch to the buy-one-get-one-free offer: You must first buy a new Dodge truck at full retail price before you're eligible to receive a second truck for about $3,000 in tax, tags and dealer fees.
"We've been fielding phone calls and e-mail inquiries from every state in the country looking to get this buy-one-get-one deal," Ahmed said.

funny thing as I saw something simmilar in the paper while visiting my friends in Iowa over Thanksgiving.
It also was Dodge dealer advertising for "buy Ram at MSRP and get Cobalt at no cost."

That would be awsome if you owned a business that used trucks.

I haven't seen this since they gave away free Kias or the Cadillac dealer that gave away free Yugos. Not a good sign for the big 3.

They had this a few years back. some dealer was offering a free Mercury Cougar if you bought a Lincoln Blackwood at sticker. It's basically using the huge discounts on both cars to get the cheap one free. Alot of dealers are doing 14k off the big SUVs. A free Cobalt is easy to squeeze in there for that $$
