#447 of 892 2008 Grand Cherokee Overland
Apr 12, 2008 (7:32 am)
2008 Grand Cherokee Overland. Signed the deal yesterday going to pick up in a few minutes. MSRP = 43,495. My deal was 33,143 (before taxes, etc). I used a Friends and Family coupon from a relative who is a Chrysler retiree (which gets you to around 1% below invoice). They had the 3,500 rebate, plus 500 military rebate, plus some sort of extra 2,000 Bonus rebate, plus they threw in an extra $700 on their own. Lithia Jeep in Colorado Springs, CO. I am trying to contain my excitement, but this seems like an incredible deal. Includes Lifetime Powertrain Warranty, of course. I can get extend to bumber-to-bumber (Maximum Care) lifetime warranty online for about $1700, so I am considering that.

wow. That is a good deal. You paid less than I did for my Limited 4.7L w/o Quadra drive II.
Was there a trade in involved?

No trade. And when I went to pick it up, the dealer offered to match an online deal I showed him for a LIFETIME Chrysler "Maximum Care" warranty for $1,615, so I bought it effectively giving me a lifetime bumber to bumber warranty. I never bought an extended warranty before, but I figured it would be neat to match the lifetime powertrain warranty with similar coverage for the rest of the car...and the price was right. My wife better like this thing, haha.

Awesome deal. Hope you enjoy your Jeep as much as I'm enjoying mine.

Just passing through here... I posted this inquiry in some of the other Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep forums, so I thought I'd try here too.
Wife & I have twins on the way (in addition to our 3-yr old) so we need to bite the bullet and get a minivan. We're going to get a Dodge GC or a Chrysler T&C sometime in June. Money will be real tight since wife will be quitting work to stay home, hence us going down to one income, so if anyone has a friends code for 2008, then I would reeeeeeally appreciate it. .... I'll even put you on my Christmas card list!!
e-mail me here at carspace and let me know....

sorry, but I don't have a friend's code. What is the price? Something like 1 to 3% under invoice?
This late in the model year, I think you should be able to do get nearly that price w. just a bit of research. Good luck, and congrats on the twins.

I just purchased a ONE-OWNER '99 Cherokee Sport with what appears to be the "Limited" package - It's 2WD, 4DR, 4.0 6 cyl, Automatic, A/C, fog lights, pwr windows, locks, ABS, Roof rack, 6way pwr drivers seat, Chrysler/Infinity AM/FM/Tape/CD (the "premium" head unit with the stupid joystick bal/fade control and EQ), overhead console w/trip computer, and (probably a prior-owner modification) what looks late-model like Grand Cherokee Limited alloy wheels. The Jeep has absolutely no weird engine noises, shifts like new, suspension is perfect. Issues: A/C is a little weak but cold, fog light switch is bad, volume control on stereo doesnt work (!!!) - (it's "stuck" on a fairly LOUD setting), and only the fwd-bck function on the drivers seat works (height and tilt don't). Beyond those few issues, the vehicle acts and looks almost new. Bought for $2,300 in South FLA">

Chrysler has announced they are putting this awful SUV out of its misery after the 2009 model year. My 1999 was the worst vehicle ever owned. No quality control. Over 30 significant problems over a seven year period. Garbage!

I think you mean the Jeep Commander derivative is going away. The 2010 Gr Cherokee is being featured in Chrylser future vehicle releases with a new hi tech variable valve system V6.
Sorry to hear you had a bad JGC, there seem to be many problems during that 99 model change year: I have had both a 01 I sold to my son and now a 07 JGC Laredo with minimal issues, none major.
