How much for new?

Regardless of what a dealer has it listed for, how much would YOU pay for a brand new Jeep Liberty right now?

I am looking at a 2012 fully optioned Jet edition that was a demo model for the dealership. They are asking MSRP for it which is nuts.. I know its rare to find one, but I just can't justify overpaying

Basically, after having looked at and test driven preowned kks with all options and low miles listed at $26k max, I am curious as to what is reasonable and what is too much. Thank you guys so much for the insight.

2014 model year jeeps are out. If they have a 2012 they need to move it. I'd start at 75% of msrp

Thank you both. That is exactly the number I had in my head. Didn't want to lowball them or pay too much. Thanks! Will keep you guys posted if we make a deal and for how much!

Always remember: they need to sell it more than you need to buy it

...that is, until they sell it to someone else, and you can't find what you wanted anymore. How many miles are on the various used Libertys for sale and on those of the various posters here? What equipment or modifications are there that you don't want, or what neglect, damage that might not be apparent? Given that Libertys are no longer made, what are the odds that Chrysler or another manufacturer will again build a vehicle with such all-around capability, especially at a price under $40k?

Not to say that you should pay MSRP, but doesn't it also really depend on what you want, too? Buying and selling things involve BOTH supply and demand.

One of my personal examples of this came from a dirt bike I bought that had been legally converted to "street-legal" just before the January, 2004 deadline to do so here in California. It's a particularly light weight bike that also had an expensive front suspension conversion. The bike had been ridden once by the owner's wife, and she didn't like it/couldn't handle it. The tire knobs had no wear and the tires still had the molding nubs and flashing sticking out. The bike sat in the owner's garage for 2 years before he decided to sell.

I paid way over the "blue book" value for that bike! BUT I've thoroughly enjoyed riding my dream bike for 8 years now in all kinds of wonderful, challenging offroad places, and I didn't have to fix someone else"s neglect or damage---I just broke it in and maintained it the proper way I wanted to, and carefully added the options I wanted. And yes, I haven't seen or heard of another bike like it new or used (with anywhere near its capability/qualities and let alone with such low mileage) in ads in the past 8 years (riding buddies have long been looking for one like it for themselves and have asked me to also look for them).

Now that I'm physically impaired and won't be able to ride, I'm really glad that 8 years ago I was willing to pay for what I wanted---and went ahead and bought that bike.

When looking for mine, I used cargurus.com. They'll tell you based on the vehicle if it's above, at or below fair market value. And since it's at a stealership, it should come up when you do a search, as opposed to a private seller. They're prolly trying to get a lot since it is a Jet edition with every option.

Good luck, hope it goes well for ya!

I agree with JeepGeezer. I paid KBB for my Liberty Sport. I am sure I could have gotten a limited with a lot more miles on it. I found an immaculate 09 Liberty with only 14.5k miles. I didn't push too hard on the negotiating because I wanted it and they gave me what I wanted on trade.

I looked at a lot of Libertys before I bought my fully loaded '11 Limited model with 24k miles 6 weeks ago. I paid 20k for it in PA. I found a brand new '12 Sport leftover at a NJ dealer & got them down to $23k. The Sport had a nav system & that was it. I went for all the bells & whistles on a used on instead.

No matter since a bus just wrecked it anyhow...good luck!

I brought my JET limited New Year's Eve 2011. The jeep was listed at $30,500. It was shipped in from Ohio, it's a 2012 every option besides moon roof. I paid around $27500 out the door. If there asking anywhere near that now 2 years old there nuts lol. I wouldn't pay more then $24k depending on the miles.

Just bought a 2012 Limited Jet CPO with 20K miles for $18,500. Dealer had it listed for $21,300 but I beat them down a bit.
