If the price is right I'd be interested in getting in a new jgc in the next few months.

Let me know if anyone has found a local dealer with some useful information.
I've spoken with Koons in Tyson's and DARCARs in Rockville and as usual the average salesman knows nothing about the '14s, but both sales managers were pretty knowledgeable and helpful. I haven't mentioned a group buy yet, but judging off of my experiences at both, I'd say Koons was the most knowledgable and wasn't trying to push the '13s. Just my 2 cents.

I'm in a Koons shuttle now actually to pick my 12 up from the shop. Good people, at least in the service dept. I'm toying with trading mine in for a 14, so I might be interested.

Re: DC metro area group buy

I'm in NOVA and will probably order a 14 this week. What is the timetable for this group?

I'd like to drive one first before I make a move. Also like to wait for the diesels.

Have you been in contact with a sales rep?

Re: DC metro area group buy

I'm working on one in Chantilly as we speak. Although, 4-5% would be very nice, I think I'll be happy with at least 2%. It seems that is the target most people on the forum are hitting if they put any effort into it. I'm buying an Overland with the V8.

I bought a Wrangler out in Culpeper years ago. If I strike out in Chantilly, I might go there. Due to location they seem to be more aggressive. Leesburg is an option as well.

Re: DC metro area group buy

So as I see it, at least 7 people have expressed interest in ordering a '14 JCG (at least by responding in this thread). Being able to go to a dealer with a group of 5-8 very serious buyers should give us a good bit of leverage on pricing.


Given that people are looking to buy at differing timeframes (waiting for Lux II, waiting for CRD, ready today), we should probably look to get some sort of offer with an expiration that spans the start of production of CRD (March). It might be more efficient if we take a divide and conquer approach to approaching dealerships, unless someone wants to volunteer to manage all negotiating.

Re: DC metro area group buy

My dealer I mentioned above just literally agreed to the 2% below invoice. I can ask them for additional points, but it would probably be helpful if at least a few of us were ready to buy/order.

Could you ask them if they'd be willing to move down on price even more if they got a bigger group? Also, what would they need to get them comfortable with knowing that we are serious buyers (deposit, etc.)? And if they'd be willing to extend the offer into March for those waiting for later packages?

Might be able to get some leverage amongst dealers. I can talk to someone at Koons at let him know that we potentially have at least 5 buyers with a 2% discount from another dealer and see if they would be interested in matching or increasing that. No promises though since my contact still has no knowledge of the 14s being available.

I'll see if I can get an email out to him later this evening.
