Re: How to order a new Jeep

Anyone have any advice on how to get the best value for your trade in when ordering? Is their a non refundable deposit involved or can I walk away if the trade in value can't be agreed upon?

I wouldn't be putting any deposit or downpayment on it until you're completely satisfied with the deal you've made.

LOL... yeah, but that's also part of the fun of doing it.

Seriously though, if you aren't 100% comfortable with the dealer or the negotiations... walk away. There are other dealers out there.

Re: How to order a new Jeep

Tried to buy a 2014 Limited with all the options on 6/12/2014. Thought we found one, but it was sold before the dealer could get to the other dealer. Ordered a 2015 on the same day. Received a VON number and that was it. I've read that production is to start 8/1.

Concerning the pricing, my dealer has been more than fair. This is the 4th vehicle I will have purchased from him.

When you say pricing was more than fair are you talking about 1% below invoice or something else? My view is any price relative to MSRP is mostly sales pitch. A price relative to invoice I consider serious.

I may return to the buying game sooner than expected. Even though I took my current vehicle off the market, a prospective buyer still wanted to make an offer on it. Advised him that an offer too good to turn down would work come September. If I accept, I'll be back shopping for a 2015 Trailhawk, equipped exactly the way I want it.

Re: How to order a new Jeep

Hi there,

I'm going to be custom ordering a new KL Trailhawk in a little over a month. I wanted to see a 2015 with the changes on the floor before I make my decision. My concern is ordering and getting a locked in price during negotiations. Has anyone tried to combine the Affiliate program through treadlightly.org and other incentives currently advertised such as the graduate incentive found here: National Incentives for military, automobility, summer clearance event & no monthly payment for 90 days program | Jeep ? I'm trying to get my model as inexpensively as possible and hope I can atleast combine those two.

Has anyone had experience with this?

Edit: I did some digging and found the following:

I ordered my 2014 KL using the Affiliate program. The dealer (sales chap) informed me of a $500 incentive (early launch deal in Dec 2013) and applied it - preorder. Your dealer may vary.

Re: How to order a new Jeep

I ordered a 2015 Trailhawk in June. Never felt pressured to pay what the dealer first offered. I told the "sales associate" that I had been looking since last December at the Cherokee and was in no real hurry to buy (which was the truth). He, realizing that in order to finally "hook me in" would need to make a good offer. And so it was. Ordering from the factory need not put you in a position where the dealer has the "leverage."

Question Price changes after ordering new Trailhawk

Quick backstory, ordered a 2014 Trailhawk in 2014 after agreeing on a price. Later, dealership increased their price, then I walked away.

Last week (5 Feb 2016), ordered a 2016 Trailhawk at different dealership after they offered a price I accepted. Later, dealership manager advised the price could go up or drop at time of delivery depending upon active incentives at that time. Was thinking I would just walk, like I did in 2014, if the price increased at time of delivery. However, I would prefer the dealership honor their own price offer that I accepted in good faith.

How common is it for dealerships to "amend" their offers on ordered vehicles when they are delivered? Seems wrong to me, that they can increase a price after a customer accepts their offer, regardless of incentives in effect at time of delivery.

This time, I have gone through the state bar association for a referral to an attorney to see what options are available to hold the dealership to their offer. Any suggestions or similar experiences?

Wow! Obviously I'm not experienced with buying (ordering) a new car in the USA, but Down Under, once you've decided upon a vehicle, selected the options, negotiated a price and signed the Contract, that agreed price stands.

We ordered in July 14 at a price of $51K. We picked up the car in Dec 14 and paid $51K.

Apologies wifiwanderer if my (Aussie) experience isn't relevant to the US buying / ordering process, but I find it bewildering that US Dealerships can change prices during the build / delivery phase I'm a fairly conservative Aussie, but I reckon that most of my Nationality would never order a car if the Dealer could do that.

All the best for your purchase; here's hoping that it all works out for you and that you enjoy your new Jeep just as much as we love ours
(Ours is now 12 months old and we've never had an issue. Great car )

I didn't even negotiate. Used my bank's car buying service, which used Truecar.com to obtain offers from 3 area dealerships based on the options I selected for my Trailhawk. The dealership made an offer that I liked and accepted. You'd think that would be the end of it with regard to what I should expect to pay. Seems absurd to deal with what amounts to kidnapping of my vehicle and paying ransom for its release from the dealership.

Re: How to order a new Jeep

I'm currently waiting for an ordered vehicle...my dealer specifically told me that whatever changed with regard to incentives upon delivery, I would get the best one. Even if that was the original incentive in place at time of order. If they are better at time of delivery, I get that one.

I think it's dealer's choice when it comes to incentives at time of order vs delivery. They may be bound to the actual vehicle price you agreed to at order time, but not the incentives on top of that. The dealer only gets the incentives offered by FCA at the time of delivery, so they would have to eat the difference if they dropped off (which is what my dealer claimed they would do).
