Ditto here. Saturn dealer (same dealer group as Jeep) could not help me. Monthly payment for base AWD Outlook ($31,400 MSRP) was $471.00 per month for 36 months with $2,500 cash down. Although their residual was high (63%), the interest rate was a very high 6.95%. No rebates or incentives as the Outlooks are selling very well. Went next door to the Jeep/Chrysler and the rest is history. Please see my previous post. Set to pick up JGC (Red Rock Chrystal) next Wednesday. Thanks and Merry Christmas to all.

Congrats on the new Jeep; I'm sure you'll enjoy it! I love that Red--you'll be getting lots of looks in that baby.
Merry Christmas to you and all forum posters/lurkers!
#386 of 1397 Activate Daytime Running Lights (DRL)

Picked up my 2008 JGC on Wednesday 12/26. Very smooth and powerfull with the 4.7 V8. Question, Can anyone tell me how to activate the DRL's or is this a dealer function? or perhaps someone could direct me to the proper forum. Thanks for all your help to date.
#387 of 1397 Chrysler Lease Disposition
Dec 29, 2007 (3:51 pm)
I recently leased a JGC via Chrysler Leasing.... They are using a $425.00 disposition fee... ? Is this standard across all Chrysler Leases ... ? is it negotiable... ? I am fully aware they will waive the fee if you purchase another Chrysler / Jeep product and curious how to avoid it all together... My current JGC lease is expiring from 2005 and it has a $300 disposition.
Thanks in advance....

It must be standard. My lease dated 12/26/07 also includes a $425 amount under Item 3 (other charges). The upper left corner of the document states "NEW YORK" and "Motor Vehicle Lease Agreement"

What is the adjusted cap capitalized cost amount which includes all fees and taxes? The .00038 MF equates to a less than 1% interest rate which is very good. Current Jeep incentives and rebates are scheduled to expire on 1/2/08. After that who knows. They could be reduced or disappear entirely. $507/mo. x 36 mo. = $18,252 total pay out.

They were dropping the price by about $8,070 and the residual was about $19.500

This would seem like a pretty good deal. I ran a payment estimate on a dealers webb site for a similarly priced Jeep with zero dollars down for 3 years. The resulting payment estimate was $555/mo. for 36 mo. Since you would not appear to be eligible for the lease loyalty incentive, $507/mo seems reasonable. See posts #369 and #376 to get a ballpark figure. If you push the Sales Manager a little, you might even get a better deal. End of the month and calender year, etc.

You might be able to get a bit more off, if you're a patient and firm negotiator. We were ready to walk a couple of times, but got the deal we wanted by holding firm on what we wanted to pay. I don't think these SUVs with large engines (ie not great gas mileage) are not selling that great, so hold your resolve....you might be surprised!
