I think it is worth checking out the Texas dealer for quote. If you can provide contact that would be appreciated. I sent PM. Have others on Jeep Garage used the Texas dealer to save $ and break in their Jeep with long road trip? I think if any problems with Jeep it would be better to have local dealer but still worth checking out. Thanks.

Re: 2014 GC "EcoDiesel" OWNERS!!! Review..

The service side of a dealership is profitable and and I haven't had a problem with using out of area dealers in regards to getting service. Been doing it for years as I haven't bought a local car since the internet came along. Have now bought Chevy, Dodge, Lincoln, Nissan, Mercedes, BMW, Porsche, Lexus, Jag, and now a jeep at remote dealerships. One of the Corvettes came from Jersey. Didn't exactly pay off as the money I saved was consumed getting the car back but boy was that a road trip.

At any rate it seems to me that dealers will take the money without issue and it hasn't changed my treatment at the dealership as I could notice. Service is something you need to shop around anyways because some dealers are much better than others.

Re: 2014 GC "EcoDiesel" OWNERS!!! Review..

Fantastic deal and 600 mile road trip nonstop in heavy rain, fog and nite driving. Great way to learn how the JGC performs. I am very happy with my diesel and getting 27.5 mpg over 1700 mile.
You will NOT be sorry...

Houston has a lot of great things to see - so spend a day (or 3) and be close to the dealer if you discover anything not quite right.....

Re: 2014 GC "EcoDiesel" OWNERS!!! Review..

OK. I wonder why the Houston Jeep dealer can offer 5% below invoice and other dealers will not match this. Seems too good to be true. Even the Chrysler Affiliates pricing is only 1% below invoice. BTW, I don't have the dealer contact info yet, so if anyone cares to provide then that would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: 2014 GC "EcoDiesel" OWNERS!!! Review..

The Houston dealer sells a whole lotta Jeeps. Low price, high volume.

I have found a local dealer that is pricing some of their GCs at about 3% below invoice. I may be able to negotiate them lower. If so, I'll be glad to buy locally. If not, there's always Texas.

Re: 2014 GC "EcoDiesel" OWNERS!!! Review..

To understand by DC and Houston can sell JGC for what they do I spent time with a moderate volume JGC dealer who sells 300/ mo. What the sales manager told me is that those dealers must sell well past 1000/ mo which Jeep provides incentives to allow them to make a small profit.
He told me he could not touch that price and that the volume is the main reason. Same reason some are getting close to these deals at large volume dealers in CA and CO.
Simple matter of volume...
