Just got a 2003 Jeep Wrangler X last week at Hurd Automall in Johnston RI. They wanted $14000 FOR IT . I wasnt about to pay that, i asked the bottom line and after a week of negotiating and talking, i got them down to $11595.
Its got 30k miles on it and runs like a champ. I also got the 3 yr / 30k mile warranty as well.
If anyone has any suggestions as far as getting a hard top goes, it would be great. it came with the soft top. Not too bad but i think i would rather have a hard top.
If your looking for a good deal, head over to Hurd Auto mall in Johnston RI , they are good people.
#254 of 706 Paid invoice for 4dr unlimited sahara
Feb 09, 2007 (8:10 pm)
just ordered my 4dr unlimited sahara with the AEM,24G,CJ1, and CLE packages.I paid $28,107.00, which is invoice price. I started with Steve Ford Jeep in NC, the one who uses EBay pricing. They were at $28,305.00 with a $200 travel expense, i'm in NJ. I requested a quote from Edmunds, which was submitted to 5 dealers. 4 of them would not come down that low, but Pine Belt offered me the price of $28,107.00. Steve Ford lowered their price to $27,850.00(still with the $200 travel expense) but I didn't think the different in price was worth buying from a dealer so far away. I will say that Steve Ford was able to give a week of deilivery while Pine Belt gave me the "6 to 8 week" phrase. From what i was told dealers have an allotment in each build, depending how previous amount of jeeps sold. So now starts the waiting game. Anyone have an idea on delivery timeframes?

#257 of 706 Hot & Hard to Get?...A Sahara Story.
Feb 11, 2007 (3:51 pm)
I just purchased a 2007 4x4 Sahara Unlimited in steel blue - well stocked, with an msrp of $29,325. The dealer had also posted an additional "Market Value Adjustment" sticker of $1,800 - which we just basically laughed at - and got the car for $28,375, which I think is about 5-8% above invoice - and I think was a pretty fair deal. The dealer said that this "MVA" was going to be even higher come spring when everyone wants one of these sweet jeeps.
Anyway, I was so happy to find one in stock with all the things I needed like; auto transmission, air bags, soft top - I went for it, as the dealer told me that these cars were hard to come by -- and besides, it was in steel blue, which was the "hot" color! Is that true? Should I have waited? Would silver or green have been a better choice for resale?
Also, at the last minute - we got suckered into a 60K/6 yr. extended warranty for $860. Is that worth it? We have 60 days to cancel.

Assuming that is not $860 a year I would have taken them up on the warranty as well. They offered an extended on the one I just got however it was a lot closer to $3,000 for the same coverage so I turned them down. I figure the extended plans are just a way for the dealership to get extra off you buying a car anyway however what you quote would have been too good to pass up. I can still add it on before the factory runs out if I want to but at that cost I figure if something breaks after 30K/3yrs I can fix it myself or pay for it.

Any recent experiences regarding prices on a 2-door Rubicon? Most here are talking about their 4-door Wranglers.

CarMax now offering Rubicon 2-door 4WD at invoice prices. They've dropped from a few hundred under sticker in the last week or so. So there is hope for we potential (pay invoice ONLY) Wrangler buyers.

Hell, CarMax even sells new Vettes at invoice. I don't believe too many Chevrolet dealers would honor that price IMHO.
