Anybody Near Pineville, NC?

Odd favor. I found a JGC I am interested in, but it is in Pineville, NC and I am in San Antonio, TX.

Is there anyone near Pineville that would be willing to kick the tires of a JGC for me?

Re: Anybody Near Pineville, NC?

I'd do it if I was anywhere near there, but unfortunately for you, I'm not.

You are better off just ordering one exactly the way you want it, all things considered. There is a group buy somewhere in Texas (I don't remember where) that offers great pricing. In addition, you would get a 2015 model, which could include some extra options, depending on what trim level you are looking at.

Re: Anybody Near Pineville, NC?

Yup, just down the road, 5 minutes. If you need more pictures of it, I can do that ( assuming its at a dealer today , on the 4th). Heading out of town soon for a couple of days ( for you internet home invasion freaks...large dog and wife with shot gun)

Let me know how I can help,
Al

Re: Anybody Near Pineville, NC?

Stopped by yesterday and since I was the 238th person to walk through the door I won $1000*. I was actually hoping for a least a free hot dog. I'll post some pictures and thoughts this afternoon while I'm at work and have some time.

Re: Anybody Near Pineville, NC?

Well here goes;

March 2013 build. I didn't get to turn on the Jeep so I don't know what radio update version it has.

Outside: very good condition.
No scratches ( maybe one that I could barely see about 1/2 inch long).

No dents what-so-ever.

Paint color seem to be consistent ( if you've followed 2014 threads, some seem to have splotches). It was parked next to a white car and the sun was out, so it was bright enough outside.

Only one small problem outside, one wheel had been "curbed". See pic.
Overall the outside looked great.

Inside;
Well for 19,000 miles I guess it was good. The normal spots for scuffs were there. See pics. Door trim has the lower scuffs, just like mine do now and probably any used Jeep you look at will. Minimal scuffs on the back door trim ( minimal use...no foot prints on the back of the driver's seat)

Rear cargo area; Once again normal use scuffs ( but minimal). If you've looked at the GC, the rear cargo area has two metal "delta" shaped pieces that scrape easy. And so does the lower liftgate trim. It's been used, but it doesn't appear that they hauled wood or any other nasty material day-after-day.

Driver's seat; a little more wear than I'd like to see on the door side. I too have black leather ( but a Limited/ non-"Napa" leather seat), and it doesn't look like that ( I'm at 7,000 miles though)

Interior nice. It did have a distinct aroma. I don't want to say smell or odor, but it's different from my Limited. It's not a smoke smell. It may be because all the leather in the Summit trim. On my Limited the a-pillars, dash, headliner etc are a soft touch plastic. Summit is a felt/ leather( others can chime in on the trim)

Overall I think it looks great for 1.5 year old Jeep. But the mechanical stuff is where I'm not going to even try.

If it's a great great great deal, try it out. But when there's a Texas group buy and get a new one, well , only you can figure that out.

Let me know if you need any other info.

Re: Anybody Near Pineville, NC?

If that is a MY14 March 2013 build, that's a very EARLY build for the model year...lots of stuff got addressed over the subsequent 6+ months.

Re: Anybody Near Pineville, NC?

jeepinAl - Thank you very much for taking a look at this Jeep for me!

Do you think the scuffs on the lower door could be cleaned up? Also, I'm a bit concerned about the "smell". I previously had a 2011 JGC Overland with 47k miles and it still smelled clean.

I can't say it's a "great great great" deal. They have it listed at $45,998 and they don't negotiate at Carmax. Seems several thousand below even the Group Buy price.

Jim_in_PA - Can you share some details about the "stuff" that has been addressed?
