#876 of 892 Buying a new vehicle damaged at factory and repaired

Im looking at purchasing a new 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Summit. The car was broken into after it was produced before it was delivered and the factory repaired the vehicle. The dealer than bought the vehicle from a Chysler auction. The car has less than 10 miles. The wheels were stolen and some damage was done to the door. Most importantly the radio/information system was ripped out of the dash. Everything was repaired and the dealer supplied me with an itemized list of what was repaired. Total cost of factory repairs was between 4 and 5 thousand. It has full factory warranty on it. The estimated fair price of this vehicle now, is approx 46000, the dealer wants to sell it for 42000. I am in process of doing a check on the VIN to make sure its clean.
Is this a fair discount for a vehicle damaged like this?
What was the estimated discount the dealer bought this vehicle for?
Is there anything else i need to be aware when buying a repaired new vehicle like this i need to be aware of?
Thanks for any informed Input
PS I said i was a little uncomfortable with the damage and was wondering if they could throw in the extended warranty at cost. They offered a 80month/100,000 through zurich with a 100 deductable. Said their cost was 2600 and give it to me for 1300. Is that a fair deal?

I purchased my 535x through Passport BMW in Maryland. Never actually went to the dealer. They had great inventory and had the exact model I wanted. Go to any BMW dealer and pick out what you want. Make, model color etc. Then see if Passport has it. Really shop around first and then lowball them on the offer. You will be surprised what they will agree to. Tell the salesperson on the phone to run the number by the manager.

2014s are out so I don't think this is a great deal. Plus the damage will end up on a carfax report making resale problematic. The 2014s also have a new 8speed transmission and the display screen for nav/radio/climate is much larger and better. I think if you push hard you can get 10-11% off of MSRP on an undamaged new model. So an Overland going for around 48k you should be able to get for 43k.
#880 of 892 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland
May 21, 2013 (9:04 am)
I just completed the deal for a black on black 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4X4 with the V8 Hemi engine in the Seattle area. I initially wanted to make a deal on a 2013 Overland that was on a different dealer's website, but then I saw a deal on this dealership's website for $3500 off of invoice on 2014 Grand Cherokees, including the $500 graduate incentive.
The MSRP was $49,185 and was priced at $43,212. I told the dealership that I wouldn't step foot on the lot unless they sent me all of the numbers, and when they did I went immediately to complete the deal. The vehicle was still in transit when I initially wanted to see it, but they "rushed" it in within two days.
The dealer waived an added on $395 for window etching (an apparent theft deterrent) that I told them not to do since the vehicle was not on yet their lot (but they still did), and when they told me that the graduate incentive didn't cover my vehicle, they still took the $500 off.
One other dealership in Kirkland, WA that I visited before I talked to Tacoma Dodge said they would match the $3500 off price, but played games when it came time to talk numbers, so I walked immediately.
I am not sure how Dodge Tacoma made the deal work on a popular new vehicle, but I am happy they did.

Hey, how much should I pay for a JGC Limited V6 with or without navigation? Is it crazy to think I could pay 36,000?
