You are now looking at the proud owner of a new black 4x2 automatic Jeep Liberty.
We ended up paying $289 a month INCLUDING taxes, and only paying incentives (no cash down, 12k miles a year for 36 months).
One problem. I left the dealer and on my dash I saw the TRIP meter was on, I didnt know how to switch it to see the actual mileage. On the lease it says I left the dealer with 50 miles on the car.
I got home and tampered with it a little until I figured out how to make the mileage pop up.
Multiply that 50 miles the dealer told me by 8.
Yes, I signed a lease on a car with 450 miles already driven on it. Only, the dealer told me "Theres only 54 miles driven on the car"
WTF? Is this even considered a NEW
450 miles is basically like the car has been driven for 3 weeks. Im not too fond of paying for a 'used' car the same price I would have paid if i had gotten a new one. And for those of you that are saying "its not used its only been driven for 2 weeks", well alot can happen in 2 weeks and 450 miles: What they did with the engine, if anything went wrong with the car, if they broke in the engine correctly... Alot of things fall into place in the first month of a car.
I bought a 2006.5 (Yes its considered 2006.5 and not just 2006) VW Rabbit before this car and the VW Dealer didnt even mention to me that the whole passenger door and driver side fender was repainted before the car was fully paid for. Actually they never mentioned it to me, carmax told me it was repainted before when I went to them to see how much I could trade the VW in for. So never again am I trusting a dealer that has driven a car off the lot for so long and everything "SEEMS" fine with the car.
Will the dealer give me a NEW car considering the lease is wrong and says I have 350 miles less than what I really have, even if it means transferring a car from another dealer if they dont have a black one? If they dont fix it, itll mean Im already set back 450 miles on my 1,000 miles a month limit. Not cool.
And no, I dont want them to just redo the lease saying that the car started out with 450 miles. I negotiated on a price for a NEW car with 54 miles on it and thats what I expect to get.
My first Jeep and I didnt expect something as stupid as the dealer not knowing the difference between the Mileage meter and the Trip meter.
