No hastle, ordered exactly what I wanted, all prices (MSRP/invoice) matched what online said, lower dealer fee, and out in 30 minutes from when I walked in.
That's exactly what i did and would do again if i ever get a new car again. I got the 1% below from my company's affiliate program and just walked into my local dealer, told them what we were looking for, found a match in a nearby state and bought it. Came back a week or so later after it had been delivered to pick it up.

To save a couple/few hundred dollars i wasn't going to drive all over the state shopping around, let alone out of state. Waste of time.

When calculating a lease, ask for the residual percentage (or value), and the money factor (which translates to an APR and may be called several other things like "lease factor"). Also what was the negotiated price? From there you can see where they are screwing you on a lease since they always do:/ For instance, when I was looking into leasing they were trying to charge me interest on my down payment, but without seeing the above three numbers I would have never known

I don't consider saving $2500 more than you did a waste of time.

Not sure why you don't understand simple concepts. The dealer you love and praise offers a % discount, not a $2.5K dollar discount on every vehicle. I believe i've said it before, by here it goes again:

My '12 Laredo X had an invoice price of about $35K, of which i got 1% below. At 5.5% below the additional reduction would be about $1.5K, with the exception i would have had to fly from CT to TX and drive 1,500 miles back home while my local dealer is 2 miles away.

It would have been a colossal waste of my time to go through all that effort for $500-$700 net savings, and if i, or anyone, is that desperate to save every single dollar they can, perhaps i/they shouldn't be buying a $40-$50K+ car.

Why such an angry response. Just trying to help other jeep members. By the way, to compare apples to apples, on a base Laredo E 2014, you would save $1417 from what you paid on a base Laredo E 2014 model with your 1% savings. I am making a vacation out of the trip, so I do not figure in gas and hotel. If you don't want the deal, please don't bash others who do. Lets play nice.

Let's see how i did if i had bought from Shanhuber's loved dealer and got the extra $1.5K in price reduction:

Flight = $300 (don't know exact location of dealer, so searched for flights to Dallas). Leaving a Friday afternoon after work.
Hotel = $240. Arrive Friday night, leave Saturday afternoon after pick up at dealer. It's 1,700 miles away so i need 3 days of driving, aka 2 hotel nights. Total hotel nights are 3 @ $80 each (certainly not resort prices here)
Gas = $220. About 1,700 miles at 25 mpg (optimistic) will take 68 gallons. Current national avg for regular fuel is about $3.3/gal
Meal = $100. I'll need to eat dinner on Friday upon arriving, then lunch and dinner for the 2 full days of driving and likely lunch on the last day of driving when i arrive home. So total of 6 meals.

Total spent = $860
Net Savings = $640

So i had to drive 1700 miles in 3 days arriving home dog tired, slept at holiday inn's at best, didn't do any sight seeing and missed 3 days with the family for $600 bucks. OMG WHAT A DEAL!

25 mpg is really optimistic for a brand new vehicle. Ours didn't break 22 until around 2000 miles, and starting improving even more to around 25 mph around 6000 miles.

Flight $300
Hotel 1 night $80 (say at a friends first night) and only 2 days of driving.
Gas-go with your figure $220
Meals-go with your figure $100
Total $700
$2500-700= $1800 savings for 2 days. Worth if for me. Like I said, if you don't want the deal, don't take it. Getting tired of your bashing.

Agree, so gas will be a bit more than that plus i'm sure i'll run into tolls at some point (for sure in NJ/NY).

Heck, for that little amount of savings i rather just do a little bit of haggling at my dealer and see how i can get an extra $500 off and not have to go through this trip.

Hey guys.

i am new to the site and have been hunting for a 2014 jeep. i just can't get enough of the new body style. those new led headlights are a must have too.

the situation i find myself in is i can't decide between the luxury II or the overland. is it worth spending the extra couple grand for the overland?

any feedback would be great! I'm looking to buy around january - february once the holiday season is done.

i am from chicago.

thanks,

I was quoted today for the following:
2014 Limited 4x4
- Lux II
- 20 wheels
- Rear seat DVD system
- 8.4 Nav

$43,270 +TTL + $389 processing fee.

This deal seems horrible to me. I live in the DC area and it seems I can get a ton better (maybe under 41k?)

I leased my 2014 GJ Limited. $38,095
Options:
Power Sunroof $995
Uconnect 8.4 w/Nav $795
20 inch tires $1295
For that package the dealer started at a lease price of $547/month. I got him down to $457 with $0 down.
