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."
