'13 buying advice-worth it?

Note- 24 year old, steady job, loves his current WK but have been slammed since the warranty ended with major repairs.

Looking for some advice. I've got an 07 GC Limited with about 70g on it right now. It will be 7 years mine in October. With the new GC hitting the streets I have been considering trading it in for a '13 Overland even though its more chrome than I am use to (maybe a trailhawk?). Do you guys think i'll be able to swing a decent deal out of it? I know there are a lot of variables but im finding a solid number of V8's around and I cant help but wonder how eager dealerships could be to make room for the new ones..

I really cant see myself doing a '14. I figure this next car will get me through another solid 5-7 years and then I can get my Wagoneer and restore an e-type. but I digress...

Thoughts?

Re: '13 buying advice-worth it?

I'd say that dealers are eager to get rid of the '13s. I got mine for 11% below invoice roughly three weeks ago. If you like the '13s, go for it.

Deals can be found on the '13s but you kind of got to hurry on this as there are starting to not be many left. With all the discounts, 10% under invoice should be attainable.

Re: '13 buying advice-worth it?

yea no dilly dallying! My local dealership has quite a few 13's left. but that's mainly because its a shady place. however the dealership I bought mine from only has 4 13's left and a TON of 14's in transit with 3 on the lot. As for the Trailhawk its still fairly new a deal may be harder to score on it. The Chrome on the Overland is an easy fix. So don't waste time!

Remember, at the end of the day, you have to be comfortable with the deal you get. It's your money. If you aren't comfortable, get up and walk out. Good luck!

Re: '13 buying advice-worth it?

I got 7% under invoice on a 2013 model in February, plus they bought out my lease (2011 Patriot). They were pretty eager to make a deal. I'm happy with it, even after driving two different 2014 models -- I didn't think it was worth it. Prices have probably come down even more since then.

Re: '13 buying advice-worth it?

You've got some good advice, above. I will add that I prefer NOT to have to go through a series of menus to turn on/off heated seats, etc. I prefer hard buttons. I prefer the '13s. Great deals out there.

Good luck!

Sno,

Are you talking only on V8's since there is the additional 1500 off or should people be targeting 10% off invoice for V6 models as well?

Im talking any, v6 or v8. I would try to get 10% under before any discounts. Not sure it would work but it can hurt.

Before any factory incentives? That would be a pretty damn steep discount
