Commander prices

I was just reading that Chrysler had a 197 day inventory of Commanders... makes me wonder if there will be some great prices come this fall.

Sheesh. That is a long time. I wonder what vehicle holds the record for the longest inventory...

On the shorter side of the line, I heard that a Toyota Prius is about a 5 day inventory, not that I would ever be interested in something that has no soul for an engine.

Just being a Hybrid doesn't guarantee sales either... the Honda Insight Hybrid only sold 320 units (that's right, 320) in the first quarter of this year. Needless to say, it's being discontinued.

The Chrysler Crossfire was over 200 days

Mauss, with any gas guzzling SUV, rebates + dealer markdowns will occur. I have seen dealers reduce prices around 6700 off msrp

Wow... I've been thinking of waiting tell my wife's Liberty is paid off to trade it in for a Commander (in three years), but if I see that kind of deal on a HEMI with zero percent financing, I'd jump on that one.

OK, time for me to show ignorance here.

What do you mean by a 197 day inventory? Is that how long they give the car to sit on the lot?

Almost. It's the average length of time the vehicle sits on a dealer lot before it is sold.

I think the typical car might sit on a lot for 55 days or so.

So, you can get a sense of supply and demand for a particular vehicle in relative terms to other vehicles based on the time.

Its really good for the consumer, its more ammo to use against dealerships when getting a deal, on cars that dont sell well you should never pay at or over invoice ever. Such as on the 06 Suburban, you can find a NEW Suburban for nearly 12-13k off sticker, thats ALOT when you consider most are in the 40-45k range.

I know they have the 0% financing or 2500k off special going on right now. We went with the 0% financing, which you just can't pass up!

i took the 5000.00 off . you can get an elaon with 6.15% interest. it works out to be about 2.00 cheaper than 0% . But you will owe 2500.00 less. that may matter if you have to take another loan for something else. also if you unforntunately die your heirs will owe 2500.00 less also. You can also pay a little more each month and actually drive the interest down some. take the rebate and owe less.

Right before I bought the Commander, back in Sept 2005, I made an offer on a new Denali. I wanted $15,000 off MSRP. At the time, the dealer would not do it.

Today, I think it would be a different story...

It's a great time to be a buyer of SUV's with the current gas price situation.

Is there a readily available post of inventory days for other vehicle makes and models?

Not that I am aware of, it's not something that manufacturers want the general public to know.

I hear the Prius is up to about 8 days now, which is still very short supply, and that the FJ Cruisers are selling well too, but I don't know what the inventory is.

I have an 04 Grand Cherokee Limited. Jeep will let me get into something else now that I'm 2 years into the lease. Does anyone know how this works? Will I have to put money down again? And with the "Employee Pricing" going on, what should I be paying for a Commander? I don't need the HEMI.

My guess would approximately $5,000 below MSRP, with employee pricing program, but it's hard to say without knowing how your vehicle is optioned, and what model. I'm assuming 4.7L with medium options.

Ask your dealer about the lease - and see what the offer is...
