Puget, look into Tread Lightly pricing: http://www.treadlightly.org/page.php/chrysler_discount

Re: about to buy Overland 2011... should i wait?

Good decision to get it now. I think a lot of these guys who wait are just afraid of commitment!

Seriously, however, I procrastinated for quite a while before finally putting my $ where my mouth was. Now that I have the JGC I wonder why I waited so long. It's so much better than the X3 I had before. Sure I'd like better mileage (who wouldn't?), but the Sirius TraveLink gas price report at least helps me find the cheapest gas around. Saved me about 15 cents a gallon on a recent trip through Phoenix.

Rebates can never be predicted in advance because the decisions are not made until the very last minute. And one cannot depend on past trends as too many factors come into play - current inventories, market conditions, etc.

The 2011 models will soon be "a year old". That means they will be worth several thousand less than a new 2012. So to come out "even" so to speak one would have to purchase an outgoing 2011 model for several thousand less than what they could negotiate a 2012 model for. And since one can order a 2012 for somewhat close to invoice, a 2011 model would have to be purchased well below invoice to be considered a really good deal. Unless there is an immediate/pressing need to get into a 2011 it makes more sense, in my opinion, to buy a 2012.

The 2012's are going into D1 status lately, so they should be on the roads within a month and a half...

I can't honestly say I'd wait but you should.....I have very little patience.

Re: about to buy Overland 2011... should i wait?

I'm glad I decided to wait for my 2012 order rather than buy a leftover 2011. The fact that I was able to get the same discount off a 2012 and get the 6 speed was a win win for me.

Re: about to buy Overland 2011... should i wait?

Ill post pics tomorrow if i get it.... I couldnt get it Monday as I said. They had to bring it in from another dealership elsewhere so tomorrows when I buy it if i do, now that I read a lot of these posts. I went to see it today to finalize my decision. It is pretty sweet. We pretty much agreed on 40.5 K but I think I'm going to try to bring down the price more. I know it could be at least $1000 cheaper. They brought it in for me, they know im going to buy so might as well bargain.
