You don't get an owner's manual?!?!
You get the smaller User's Manual hard copy, but not the big Owner's Manual hard copy. Both are available online as PDFs, which is great for searching using the find feature in Adobe reader. :) I like to have both hard copy and PDFs. PDF is great when I'm looking for something specific (using search) and the hard copy is great when for educational reasons.

I think based on the new rules you would not qualify, but I would confirm with them.
It DOES say HOUSEHOLD, not just your trade... maybe it counts if ANYONE else who lives with you has a different brand car?

I plan on using my father-in-law's F-150... that is, IF my Jeep ever :swear: gets here!!!

I was a little skeptical of the BonusDrive offer. After applying for the rebate the day after my JLUR was delivered in late February, I received and deposited my $500 check last week. I have no idea how they do this but I can attest it is legitimate.

Yes that is how I am reading it. Oh well.

Yes I saw it said household. I live alone so unless they count two Harley's as other vehicles then I am out of luck :swear:

I’d certainly try it! You have to have a license, insurance and motor vehicle registration to operate it, right? :fingerscrossed:

SPECIAL BONUSDRIVE OFFERS:

All qualifying Fiat-Chrysler purchases (Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Jeep and Ram branded vehicles) receive $500 for any purchase made on or before March 31, 2018

All qualifying Fiat-Chrysler purchases made on or after the date of April 1, 2018 receive $250. Purchaser must show 1) proof of ownership of a non Fiat-Chrylser vehicle in the household; OR 2) proof that the vehicle used at trade in was not a vehicle made by Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles.


I am not understanding this part of the bonusdrive offer? So I just took delivery last week. I only own one vehicle, this one and I traded a 2015 JK Wrangler. So this offer does not apply to me from the wording above as I read it from their site.
Correct. Only a rebate for those owners trading in a different brand vehicle, not repeat Jeepers. Talk about being rewarded for loyalty! :facepalm:

BonusDrive is a third party - they don't want you to be loyal, they want you to give up a car that doesn't gives them anything (non FCA/Hyundai) and trade it in for a vehicle that gets them and you a rebate (FCA/Hyundai).

It's FCA's job to keep you as a loyal customer.

Yes, sounds very legit, since everyone is getting a check. But what is their business model? Are they selling your data to someone for $300, giving you $250, and making a $50 profit? Or ? I'm not complaining that they might be selling your data (if that is the case), but it would be good to know how they are just "giving" money away.

First thing I always do when buying a new car, take off all dealer plates, stickers, crap. Scotch guard the carpet and mats. Then I will put on a full detail, paint correction etc. They it is off to my trusted window tint place.
