Going to the dealer and need some help

Hi everyone, I am going to the dealer next week to trade in my 1999 Jeep wrangler TJ for a 2014 JK. This will be the first time that I am going to a deaer alone and I don't want to look like an idiot. I know Jeeps but when the dealer sees a woman they think we are stupid. I want to make sure that I get the best deal but I'm not sure how to go about it. I do know that there is no way I am going to go blindly there and accept their offer. But how do I talk them down? Thanks for any help.

why do you need to talk them down? the only person to whom it matters if the deal is good or not is you. and remember, there is no such thing as the "best deal," only the one you finally decide on. the "best deal" or "lowest price" does not exist.

And you can get 1% under invoice if you join Tread Lightly for 3 years and you bargain down from there. You might want to consider selling you car by yourself and not trading it in. Also if you go by the local Carmax they will tell you what they will buy the car for. If there is a local Jeep Club in your area you might want to list it on their website.

keep in mind that by selling it yourself, you lose any tax credits you may have received if you traded it, if your state is a trade difference state.

To get an idea of prices on a JK

Check out http://www.farrishdodgejeep.net go to their inventory and select JK. It give you an idea of the discounts available. I dont recommend this dealer
but their website does show a starting point for negotiations with your dealer

Did you know that different states have different laws regarding that???

Miss Amy's sensibilities and the language filter prevent me from telling you what I really think about you.
