I do wish you well with your MDX, I just didn't find it the thrill that others did and it did not meet my towing capacity requirements.
I picked up my Limited 4x4 on Monday and have driven 700 miles and the tranny is so smooth, I dont feel a thing and have to look at the EVIC to know what the ride is doing. I have had a couple of quirks happen but have decided that they were caused by me and not the JGC. This is by far the best ride I have ever owned and so far am very happy with the ride.

I also am not crazy about it-have to look at differed places for info at different levels. Another thing- As ingenious some think it may be, I LOATHE the blind, no...the passenger side camera that always go on when the right turn signal is used on the Accords. Seriously!?!

Would be a helluva drive back (in a good way), but I'm hoping I can strike the same deal in the competitive SoCal market. That way, I can drive to CO both ways

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Does anyone know the rough estimate of delivery if the CRD order date of Aug 9th sticks, YOu think it will be end of SEP or OCT ?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Hopefully I should be purchasing a 2014 JGC tonight. I've worked out what I feel is a very good deal but it's really got me wondering... How does the dealer make any money when they do a deal so far below invoice that they have gone beyond the holdback?

There is more money on the table when the dealer moves x number of vehicles in a month...when they hit that goal, they get $y for all the cars that were sold. Volume dealers shoot for those extra incentives.

Good question. How do you know how much the holdback is, though?
