That's the problem with Dodge dealerships.
I remember when I was new shopping for a pre-owned car. I went to the Porsche dealership to look at a boxster...threw me the keys right away. Afterwards the salesman begged me to drive a 911, told me I would be a customer for life after driving one. Later I went to drive a new Caliber SRT. Wouldn't let me get near the driver's seat, even after a credit check (I was paying in cold hard cash and they knew it). The salesman never too me seriously. It's just a totally different mentality.
