In Minneapolis, the CRDs hold their value much better than the V6s if you compare matching equipment levels. I read a thread about this awhile ago and then went to the statistics and also talked to the sales manager at my 5 star dealership who is actually someone who believes in being truthful.
My dealer told me, based on what he can sell them for is getting a $2300 premium for the CRD on used 05s with 25000 miles on them.
He laughed and said that isn't what they're offering for trade ins. Any trades they're getting are from folks that for whatever reason have decided that diesel was a bad idea and want something else. I can totally empathize with the situation. I did the same thing with a previous vehicle and really took a bath on dumping it after a year. It is a difficult situation. For any vehicle however, it is highly unusual to trade after a year.
The reason for the premium is that the number of CRDs on the lot has dwindled and some people who want an 06 are happy getting what they percieve to be a deeply discounted 05.
In hard numbers you can pick up a loaded V6 Limited gasser for around a shade over $18,000.
An identically equipped CRD will sit for less time and the dealers are getting around $20,600 by the time you get done negotiating.
A new one stickers for $30,400 and I paid $26,800 new for mine, identically equipped to all these examples.
And I ain't selling. I love my CRD.

05crdjeep: The only person who wins when buying is the dealer. They will not sell a vehicle for less than they owe on it. Same with a trade the dealer always wins. They may cry, and put on a huge act about how much they or going in the hole, but it's done to make us think we got the best of the dealer. And who does not want to tell their story of what a huge deal they got on a dealer?
When it gets to the point where we all pay the same price, and no wheeling or dealing, they we all will pay less, and only then.

You know, the happy part of this situation is that if you look in the used market, there are some excellent deals out there. We recently purchased a lease return, Liberty Limited, 4WD, PW, PL, Auto, 3.7L engine, etc for just over $13K, with under 25k miles. Not as neat as the more trimmed out models (I miss cruise control! ) but the unit handles great, tires are good, and a real delight to drive.

#101 of 135 Is this site/discussion dead ???
May 21, 2007 (5:09 pm)
What's up with this site ?? 4 posts since last September ?? This can't be right, can't believe the inactivity. In the market for '06 used or what's the latest as Jeep tried to clear out the '07s ?? Know it's all new for '08 but I appreciate the current style, nice balance of style & size and it's solid. Lucked out with a loaded '07 Ltd 4x4 rentql when skiing Tahoe last March and really liked it. Not a fan of Chrysler quality but will roll the dice one more time. On the down side, lots of ex rentals in the market right now. There's been major depreciation on them but good opportunity for the used buyer.
Anyone out there ?? Let's revive this site !!
#102 of 135 Process for Ordering a Jeep Liberty
Aug 13, 2007 (8:46 pm)
How does the process usually work to special order a Jeep? Once you decide the exact model, color, options, etc. and take your printout to the dealer, then what do you do after this -- negotiate the price and then place the order? Do you have to sign anything -- like the agreed upon price sheet? What if the dealer asks for some kind of deposit -- is this necessary? Then, if a trade is involved, do they evaluate the trade at that time and then again when your new vehicle comes in?

You negotiate the price and put down a deposit. Your trade will be reevaluated when the time comes to take possesion. If they lower the trade in you can walk and get back your deposit. Wouldn't give them more than 1-2 hundred as a deposit. Unless you order something very unpopular, they will just put it on the lot.
#104 of 135 What are people paying for '07s?
Oct 24, 2007 (7:45 am)
I see no one has posted here since August 2007. I am interested in getting a really good deal for an '07 Liberty, 6-speed manual in the NY/NJ/CT area. Anyone out there know what's going on with Jeep offers? I've been reading some not great things about Jeeps right now and I am wondering if it's worth the investment.
Looking foward to your responses.

You can't go wrong with the liberty. I have a 2002 sport with over 100,000 miles on it and it still runs like new. It will go anywhere and park anywhere. I tows my boat with ease. I love it.
