Im in the market to purchase a 2011 or 2012 Pre-owned JGC for my wife. I'm located in Dallas, TX and curious to get some recent data points or buying experiences on how far dealerships come off their stated retail price. we are open to looking at cars within 250 miles of Dallas so also trying to get a feel of how much "room" is padded into the deletes Pre-owned stated Internet price.
Looking for a model with under 25,000 miles. Appreciate any comments/guidance.

I have been a Jeep Driver for OVER 25 years. Bought a high end Overland GC in May 2011. The first problem was the paint bubbled in literally hundreds of places around the shifter. They replaced that, but then the cubby door in front of the shifter didn't open properly afterwards. About 9 to 10 months down the road, the Jeep started to unlock itself. This got worse, MUCH worse over the next few months sometimes happening 4 to 6 times a day. It happened when in the vehicle sitting at a WAWA numerous times. One time I came out and found the hatch open. By then I would carry the fob like it was a piece of fine glass to be sure it did not rub against anything. It did not matter. Dealer gave some lame story that was completely unacceptable. Trans shifted VERY hard on many occasions, usually at a very low speed, with a resounding clunk that could only lead to problems down range. Gas mileage sux. Like others I found myself putting my foot into it to get it off the line. After just 17 months of ownership, reading of others issues, and the vehicle not able to stay locked hundreds of times, I bailed. What a dam shame. Went to a Lexus and doubt I will return to Jeep anytime soon if ever now.

At trade in, my Jeep GC had just shy of 21000 miles. UGH !Oh yeah, the leather on the seat from just this little mileage was already showing far too much wear !

If you bought a new Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep or Fiat "special edition" model in the past year or so - or if you are a dealer who sold one - a reporter would love to hear about it. Please email PRedmunds.com no later than Wednesday, October 10, 2012 with your daytime phone number and a brief description of the car and your experience with it.

I would shoot for 13% off MSRP - so $40k or less. Mine was a 2012

I just wanted to get some info out to people regarding my 2011 Jeep Overland V6. We purchased in Sept 2010. First, I want to say I have never had a problem with prior Jeeps I've owned, ever. We purchased our Overland for 39k, which was a great price at the time, although I don't remember the details at that time, I know I was quoted one price by the sales guy and of course the finance guy had a different number..All I remember is feeling terrible when I felt, drained..
Everything was fine for the first 25k miles, then we had a check engine light, I did a little investigation, I find out that there are problems with the cylinder heads..Sure enough, that's what it was, the jeep was fine otherwise I would have never known.. As we financed this vehicle, I was worried, after my warranty runs out are all the cylinders going to do this? While we were fighting with service people to find an appointment to replace it, we notice now the rear window is opening on its own..this is a major issue as I had to call aaa to have a jump start after work... it does this several times a day..
Well, that was the last draw, I don't want to be stuck with a lemon after the warranty runs out. Today I went to my dealer and worked a lease.. From what I've read, the 12 and 13's are not having these issues.. I just worked a deal on a new 2013 Overland black on black 44k sticker, I got for 40k, traded the 2011 Overland with 26k miles engine light on, I owed 29500, they gave me 32k, my lease came to 465$ month..
As usual, they gave me some #$& and tried to get me to pay 491$, I didn't budge this time, after an hour of haggling, I walked out with my 465$.. they will try and say anything, it's insane.. Well, thanks for reading, and remember, always go to a couple dealers and work it, I had another dealer quote me 525$,.... Shop Around.

$21.5K for a limited w/ 68K and the 3.0 diesel engine. This should hold me until the '14 diesels come out.
