I'm looking at a 4dr sahara, auto, 2 wheel drive, hardtop and 18" wheels, with no other options.......
If you ever want to sell it, or trade it, you might want to consider 4wd.
I know that the MSRP has continued to rise over the past year from Jeep but does that mean that their invoice has gone up too?
I'm wondering if this is worth the money with GM's declining quality.......

Sorry, had GM on the mind for some reason. LOL. I guess what I should have said was the american auto makers as a whole.

At least you didn't confuse it with an import.
Actually, while anyone can produce the odd lemon, Jeep's build quality has been very good for many years now.

I checked the LAX carmax as well as on in georgia i think that is selling new jeeps. I called and they told me I had to be resident of that state to take advantage of the price.
I'm not an attorney but I find that totally w/o merit that one can charge non residents higher prices.

I contacted CarMax and the rep stated that NO, CarMax does NOT charge higher prices on their quoted new vehicles from

After reading someone post here regarding CarMax charging more for out-of-state sales I came upon a response from another car message board: "and even though they may receive a stairstep or other kind of manufacturer incentive for volume"... Is a stairstep the same as holdback?

It's just a way of describing one of the many remuneration programs for selling at higher volume levels. All manufacturers use them to one degree or another, but none are written in stone and often change from month to month.
Hypothetical example, sell up to 10 cars this month, no incentive. Sell 15 and get an extra $100 per car, sell 25 and get an extra $500 per car over the 15. Or maybe it gets paid on every car over ten, and maybe it doesn't get paid until the next quarter.
It can be of benefit to you if your deal takes the dealer to that 'stair step' to the next level, but it's not something you can count on when negotiating.

I was reading the June sales numbers form the "Big 3" and saw where the Jeep Wrangler plant (I believe is in Ohio) has been working OT for the last 3 weeks. Anyone here work at this plant? If so how long will this OT continue?

Hello. today I received a SAFETY RECALL G25-REPROGRAM TIPM-ENGINE STALLING. Someone mentioned stalling on this site a while ago and it looks like it's been a problem.They note that "...Totally Integrated Power Module on vehicle was programmed with software that may allow the engine to stall under certain operating conditions . This could cause a crash without warning . " So....I'm bringing my RUBI back.It's supposed to take about 1/2 hour. I hope !

Went into Naperville Jeep in IL and looked at the Jeep for my wife. She loved even the strippers they had (2) but wanted more (The Sahara would have been perfect) They had 6 due in "any day". We put our $$$$ deposit to hold it (no trade)but no negotiation. It was exactly what it was on the web. We wanted both tops but it only came with the hard top so they gave us the soft for the difference of the package, no real deal but less than purchasing one separately. They had no Sahara's but they had loaded X's. Ours was just missing the upgraded stereo and navigation. With the soft top it was $28,900. My "deal" was for them NOT to put on they undercoating and Scotch guard etc. I wanted it as it was coming off the truck. We were told the money down did not mean the Jeep was really ours as they had problems with other's not being able to get financing or they had other issues. We felt confident that we could get it as we had no trade and we were preapproved but you never know what they could try to add after the fact if someone was offering more. (It is that wonderful but extra $$$ Jeep green) Well the any day was almost 3 weeks and my wife was having second thoughts but it came in and everything was as promised. Out the door with taxes was $31,000. Expensive for hand adjusted mirrors and lights you actually have to turn on yourself and doors that just swing open (don't notch) but it feels like its made from a single piece of iron it's so solid and the doors clunk shut as well as my Dad's Caddy. My wife seems not as enthused as she has been coddled in her Buick SUV but I know the tune will change when the top comes off and we do some off roading. It also means I'll get to use it more than I anticipated. We did get the 2nd to the last one they were getting before the model change.
