Ziegler

I have been looking at the 2016 Cherokee Trailhawk at my local Jeep dealer. I am still trying to make up my mind and we haven't discussed price yet. I have also been doing research online about extended warrantees and I have seen Ziegler named as a good source for a low price on warrantees. Then I realized that Ziegler was an auto dealership that sold Jeeps as well as some other brands. I checked their website for their internet prices on Cherokees and was quite surprised. Many Cherokees were priced 6k-7k below MSRP. This was a far greater discount than they offered on the Grand Cherokees. I can't imagine getting this kind of a discount from my local dealer. I live 2000 miles from their dealership but I don't mind traveling for a great deal. Any opinions about Ziegler or their Cherokee prices? If anyone knows of that kind of pricing closer to the West Coast I would appreciate hearing about that, too. Thanks.

Re: Ziegler

Cool, had to make sure u weren't CA as the Koons Group Buy is a nogo for CA and MA residents.

If I were u, I would contact Bob Cline at Zeigler as he is awesome to work with and a very straight shooter. He mainly seems to be used for Mopar MVP Extended Service Plan deals but I do know he will deal on the vehicles too.

Zeigler Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Plainwell | New Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram dealership in Plainwell, MI 49080

I would also contact Erica at Koons (DC area) as the 7% below invoice (5% on special editions) applies. She also gets rave reviews. Their deal has a $599 processing fee but that includes the always present "doc fee" so be sure to you are comparing total OTD numbers for both.

Good luck...

Thanks for the info. The wife and I are taking a short trip to North Carolina in late September so maybe we can combine a new car purchase with the North Carolina trip. Thanks again.

Ziegler is a huge dealer network and a good one.
Discounts are always different between Grand Cherokee and Cherokees and other models. That's the market.

I bought mine 300 miles away because of price. That saved me thousands of dollars.
It just depends on your competitive zone map that FCA has.
But beware of one thing. I believe some if not most of the consumer incentives are based on where you live and not where you buy.
* A call to the dealer in question will answer that issue once he gets your zip code.
Further more urban areas generally offer more competition and better prices because of other brands in the market.
In my case I live in the Great Lakes region which includes my downstate Illinois location and the Chicago area where I use to live. Saved lots of money and my local dealer is happy to service my new Cherokee.

Now, I would suggest the following which will save you a lot of hassle.

(1) Build the jeep you want on Jeep.com.
(2) Use Jeep.com car locator by setting how far from your Zip you want to search for that Cherokee. Go far enough to get into an urban area.
(3) When you find one it will also show the dealer. Go to the dealers web page and check out the prices. By simply hitting more information on a particular vehicle the dealer will call you and work out further pricing and answer questions for you.

Actually I bought mine over the phone that way. Just be sure that you shop several dealers first on the web before contacting any of them. You can always work out a lower price. They had my information etc so when I came in to pick it up everything including the loan was set to go.
I did have a e-mail confirmation of the price and vehicle details. They did get a $500 deposit on my MC card.
But be sure to list with that deposit " refundable if sale is not consumated".

Also I would suggest getting a quote on line for a extended Chrysler service plan and they should match it. That way you can roll it all into the auto loan.

I do not think I will ever buy a new car other than on the phone/e-mail.
The details can be worked out at the dealership.
Have fun. Its a lot more fun than running around to dealers and fighting over price in their office.

Re: Ziegler

Check out Dave Smith Motors in Idaho: Dave Smith Motors | Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram Dealer
I almost purchased my Cherokee from from them, but a nearby (not closest) dealer offered a better deal.
2 things to remember:
1) The vehicle you select must be California Emissions rated (ie, PZEV-Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle) to register it in Oregon.
2) Dave Smith charges a large "prep" fee (negotiable I'm sure).

Little update. I was told by Bob Cline's assistant that he does not deal in vehicles, just the extended warranty.

I checked with Erica at Koons and got her invoice minus 7% price which was outstanding. However, my local dealer came close enough that it wouldn't have been worth it to travel 3000 miles to get a new Trailhawk from Koons. However, for the best deal, if you can find something you like in the Koons' inventory, they are offering $8500 to $9300 discounts off MSRP for all 27 Trailhawks they have on their lot. I would have gone that route except my wife is set on the Deep Cherry Red with brown leather interior and I have certain groups/options I wanted so I couldn't even find one vehicle with the things we wanted in anyone's inventory on the east or west coast. Guess we are too picky. We got a decent price, though, and the dealer here is great on service, especially warranty work, so we are happy. Vehicle is being built as we speak and should be here in June.
