#866 of 881 '13 JGC ALTITUDE LEASE QUESTION
Nov 24, 2012 (12:41 am)
Trading in a lease with $4800 in payments left.
Trade in has appx $21k buyout and dealer says its only worth $17k
'11 Honda Accord EX-L........ok fine...so I guess I gotta come out of pocket somewhat to get out of this current lease?
New Lease on '13 JGC ALTITUDE MSRP $41,080
They want $505 per month 39mos 12k miles per year
And they want $2,495 down plus first month at signing for total of 3k plus Reg costs ...which I gotta pay anyway so that's fine ...only about $130 for NY Reg.
I've been shopping dealers for a month and this is one of the better deals I've negotiated as 3-4 other dealers would not be in this neighborhood price wise.
I don't feel like its a great deal...I'm wondering if getting out of the current lease on the Honda is really hurting my deal or if they are just blowing smoke.
I would feel more comfy with $450 per month and 2k down but no dealer to date has accepted that offer so maybe this is where I'm gonna be to get this truck. It's a beautiful truck..but....
Anyone with some insight would be greatly appreciated . Thanks.....Jeff

Total out of pocket at signing
$525 First Payment
$525/ 36 months/ 12k miles
It feels high but I also traded in my 2011 Honda lease with $4,850 left in payments and a buyout of $21,600 on a car that really might only hold $19,000+ value in the re-sale market.
If I just walked in without the Honda and $0 down I might have got it for $450-475 a month and would have saved the Down payment, tax, and first payment up front......I think. Honestly I don't even care...this truck is on FIRE!!!
In my opinion if you can stay sub $500 a month with nothing out of pocket at signing then u got a decent deal. Keep in mind they have plenty of Laredo X trucks that u can definitely steal for a very fair price.
Good luck..hope this helps......Happy Holidays
#868 of 881 Purchased 2013 JGV Overland 4x4
Dec 04, 2012 (6:23 pm)
I just traded in a 2012 JGC Overland 4x4 with 10k miles and bought a new 2013 JGC Overland 4x4 (don't ask why, long story).
I was given 36,000 for my 2012 overland. This is equal to the KBB trade-in value in "very good" condition.
For the 2013 Overland, the one I am purchasing has an MSRP of 45,265. They gave a discount of 2830 off of that, then took off another $2500 in rebates/incentives (500 in customer cash, 500 for financing without using one of the promo rates, 1000 in lease conquest (my wife leases her car), and 500 from a promotional mailer--jeep can search to see if you qualify for that based on your address.
Final price is 39,935, not including TTL.
If you haven't used it yet, the website truecar.com gives you a bell-curve of prices paid nationally and locally for any configuration of any car. I found that, along with these forums, useful in finding a fair price.

Sounds like you did your homework and went to the dealer prepared to purchase the 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Hope you enjoy driving your 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee!

#870 of 881 Re: Pricing feedback appreciated 2013 Grand Cherokee
Dec 28, 2012 (10:14 pm)
I wanted to post this to see if I could get some feedback from you guys. (Great write up mister mr!) I just walked away from an offer and need a sanity check. I am located in MA and was dealer with jeep dealers in state. Basically a dealer I was trying to work with was only willing to go 9% off of list. This was end of month (last 2 weeks) in december 2012. It was on a loaded up Grand Cherokee laredo. (tow, leather, sun, quadra-2) I did ping other dealers but no one had the exact config. This dealer has 2 or 3 of this config sitting on their lot.
Their offer they would not budge off of: $37,000.00 (plus tax, title etc)
I offered 14% off, was willing to bump up to 13%. They would not budge at all. I walked away from this offer.
Am I being unreasonable?
(I think they start placing orders for 2014s in late Jan or Feb. Those have a slight change to the body style and CRD will offer big jump in mileage.) Any and all feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I don't think so. Check if you are part of the Chrysler Affiliates program through your company. You can get it at 1% below invoice. If not subscribe to Tread Lightly for $25 and you can get their affiliates discount. There is a lot of great info at Jeepgarage.com. Look under the Grand Cherokee WK2 section.

That's a very good deal, and way to use your on-line resources. Also, the site voiceofthedriver.com can be a useful tool.
The best deal they show for a 13 Overland 4x4 is $39,935 from Acadania Dodge in Lafayette, LA. Sounds like you got one of the best deals in the country, you should share your deal and help others in your area.
#873 of 881 2013 JGC Limited 4x4
Jan 31, 2013 (6:37 pm)
MSRP $43680 paid $37900 w 24h package (V8 Hemi) and Luxury Group II.
I will never ever recommend this dealership to anyone. (bayside jeep, queens, ny).
I negotiated price over the phone. They told me that they had vehicle in stock. It was totally a lie. it took me over an hour to get there.. i get there they are trying to tell me that the price was wrong and that they dont have car in stock. good thing i had the salesman that i was talking on the phone email me the price and that they had in stock.
i haggled for 2 hrs w the manager anf finally they relented and told me that they would locate car. I got it 2 days later. If i had to do it all over again I would have paid the extra $1k to go to the dealer that was 10 minutes away from me and i wouldnt have wasted 2 days of back and forth and kept my sanity.
#874 of 881 2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited 4x4 V8
Mar 28, 2013 (8:56 pm)
just purchased this yesterday. With a lot of haggling and two trips to the dealership (I walked away from their final offer first time) they called me back and I got the jeep for 39,100. MSRP was 43,870. Got it at Koons Tysons VA and to say that this was the worst buying experience is an understatement. They listed a "WOW" price of 39,237 online and I called the dealer and we agreed on a price of $38,000. I get there and they try to include a $499 processing fee and roll back in the destination charge of $995. But the WOW price savings listed included the $995. So suddenly my 38k deal went to $39,500. After I leave, the dealer calls me back and we settle on the $39,100. So the wife has to drive me over to Virginia again and we want to do the deal quickly. We were paying cash so we figured maybe 20 minutes and we would be out of there. We have kids at home and we needed to get back. They put us in a customer lounge for almost two hours before the guy comes to get us to have us do the paperwork and get our check. We could see other customers sitting in these offices and they were in there for a couple of hours. Turns out they were getting upsold on extended warranties and who know what else. I actually felt sorry for them. Then this guy starts in on us and we quickly let him know how irritated we are and how we are not interested in the extended warranties. He tells us he is obligated to go over the warranties because the dealership would face liability if it wasnt presented to us. So he just keeps talking and I take out my phone and start checking emails etc. When he realizes he isnt getting anywhere he wrapped it up pretty quickly.
Compare this with my wife's recent purchase of a BMW where I did the deal over the phone and they actually drove the car to my house and the salesperson did the paperwork with us at our kitchen table in 20 minutes.
The Jeep has the sunroof, nav, 20 inch wheels. Has the new 8 spd transmission. Got the green exterior which is so dark its hard to tell if its black or green. First jeep that I have owned and first american car in many years.
#875 of 881 Purchase of 2013 JCG Overland Summit (Jeep #4)
Apr 01, 2013 (4:41 pm)
Just purchased a 2013 Overland Summit 6cyl w/everything MSRP $50,385 for $44,550. This was a demo with 3000 mi. But still about $2000 under True Car target price. This is our 4th Jeep - 1984 Cherokee, 1993 JCG Laredo, 2001 Laredo F (X today). I really wanted a 2014 Overland 6cyl w/8 speed, but the new colors, especially interior were too extremely dark or light. It was stupid of Jeep to discontinue the New Saddle/Black interior and Mineral Grey exterior. Since you can no longer order the 2013, I searched all over the Washington/Baltimore area to find what I think was the last one with this color combo. Overall a pretty good deal - no haggling, did trade in our 2001 with only 81,000 mi. for $4000 so probably left $1500 to $2000 on the table there. Received a lot of other offers in similar range for the 2013s which seem to be deeply discounted now due to early release of 2014s. I was disappointed that both Edmunds and True Car require one to include their phone number, and don't allow you to detail options very well. As a result, the phone was ringing off the hook the next morning after I had posted, and my wife wasn't too happy. I had to email each and every one of them to clarify specs and ask that they email response & not phone me. That was actually more of a headache than talking with the dealers. Having found "The One" we are pretty happy with our deal. I was disappointed that as a 4 time Jeep purchaser, I was ineligible for any of the discounts/rebates currently offered. As a loyal 29 year Jeep driver, I can only compare this to the cable companies giving discounts to new customers and thumbing their nose to loyal customers. Shame on you Jeep for this practice, for discontinuing the best color options you had - and going boring on color choices. Shame on you Edmunds and True Car for giving my phone number out to 5 dealers each and not allowing me to refine colors/options more clearly. I came pretty close to buying an X-5 instead.
