I am looking at a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4x4 5.7L V8 with 65k miles. The offer after my trade-in estimate (I have to drive 10 hours to the dealership) and a discount is going to be between $12,280 and $12,780. It LOOKS like it's in pristine condition, but I'd of course get a 3rd party inspection done before I do any paperwork. My "salesman" told me there would be a $500 deposit that is refundable if I decide not to buy it after the inspection... which I think is weird.
What do experts think on this one?
