You can just give a $500.00 deposit after you decide on a price. Do not pay in full !! Dealer will be trading for same level GC.You can always get your money back if not happy with the GC after delivery. Good Luck

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Salesmen always tell you that but legally you are not on the hook until you actually take delivery of the vehicle. So if the Jeep you're after is not exactly what you want to take home for whatever reason you can refuse to take delivery. And even though you have signed a contract they cannot force you to drive the car off the lot.

Now, if you just changed your mind without any other cause they may try to cause trouble for you and hassle you by saying you were not dealing with them in good faith. Otherwise, if you have a legitimate reason why you do not want to take delivery of the vehicle you are in the clear because the dealership did not uphold their side of the implied contract.

If, on the other hand, you are not exactly sure and want to actually lay eyes on the actual vehicle you want and test drive it rather than committing based solely on the window sticker you still should be able to do that. If the salesman won't budge go to the manager than to the dealership owner if necessary. If they can't/won't see the logic in trading a vehicle on their lot that no one is interested in for one that is a probable sale then they're not the kind of dealership you want maintaining your new car warranty anyway and you should approach another dealer. Threaten to do this and see how they change their tune.

Twice in my life I was pressured to sign a contract the day before the vehicle was ready and both times (on advice of attorney) ended up not taking delivery. Even though the salesmen were really ticked off and threatened "legal action" they were totally empty threats and the whole thing was dropped when I told them I was writing a letter to the owner.

Don't let them bully you. Salesman don't see past their commission. Good luck!

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Thank you again, I didn't know that . How does it work? I understand that i have to negotiate the price 1st and then dealer will ship the car for me from another dealership . Do I have to sign the contract ( meaning the price etc ) before they ship the car. Or we can agree on the price, I give 500 $ deposit and don't sign anything . Until I can actually see the car and test drive it ? I don't have much experience with dealership . I only bought new car once before and dealt with the manager who was friend of a friend , so he treated me right.

Have you already worked out a price? Usually when a dealer "trades" they are actually purchasing the car from the other dealer, usually at invoice. For example. But the dealer with the car can always ask for more than invoice. I would also tell your dealer to make sure it wasn't a demo car with 1000 miles or something. If you are sure you want that exact car, then I wouldn't be afraid to work out a deal and sign an agreement and leave a deposit. If there is something wrong with the car you can absolutely make them fix it or back out of the deal. But on the other had if you see the car and decide you don't like the color or whatever then you may have a problem. As long as you are confident that is the configuration you want, and you work out a price you are comfortable with, then tell them you are willing to sing a purchase agreement and leave a deposit.

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Is just a digit in the VIN. 2013s open in June but 2014 will be at Superbowl time. My guess is that the "refresh" will primarily be cosmetic.

Something not appreciated is that the current Jeep line shares a lot of things including powertrains with other Chrysler products so go through the yearly emissions/mpg/crash test with many others. The CRD/8 speed is a new powertrain so making it a 2014 means it can go for 18 months on one certification cycle.

Also CRDs tend to have a failrly narrow torque band so are ideally suited for an 8 speed that the Pentastar does not really need (though the marketeers want). There are many aspects to Chrysler's agenda that few appreciate.

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Can you confirm that the Harmon system will also be standard on export Overlands?
If so, may delay my order a week or two.

If you are referring to the Harman audio system that is SRT only (for 2013 models; it will be offered on the 2014 Summit).
