Re: dealerships in NYC

Westbury Jeep didn't seem bad for sales (I spoke with Danny). I ended up getting the Jeep froma friend in a leasing company because I got a better deal.

Re: dealerships in NYC

I guess it is kind of hard to find a good dealership here in NYC.

I checked out Major Dodge Jeep in Long Island City. Asked to take a 2014 Overland for a test drive and it was literally TWO minutes around the block. Then when i get back the sales guy completely ignores me and my friend and I are left standing around for a good 10 minutes before i decided to leave.

I also checked out Bayside Jeep to check out a low mileage 2012 Overland and that didn't go to well either. I went there on a Saturday and was told i couldn't test drive the car because they would have to move to may other vehicles to get to it and they requested i come back the following day. I return the next day and same story. The sales person tells me it's still behind lots of other cars and i can't test drive it unless i'm serious and we workout the price before. I tell them what i'm looking to pay, then they tell me they are not moving from the internet price (i was looking to pay the internet price out the door, so we were roughly 3k or so apart). They didn't even make me a counter offer and let me walk. When i initially saw the car it had been on there lot for over 2 months and it's still there, coming up on 5 months rotting on the floor, lol. The vehicle has recently been marked down also.

Perhaps the best experience i had was at Jeep Chrysler Dodge City in Greenwhich. They also had a low mileage 2012 Overland in the color combination i wanted. I showed up to the dealer, they gave me the keys to the car and let me go out on my own to test drive it. I took it around for 45 minutes or so but unfortunatley they wanted more for the car than i thought it was worth.

I ended up finding a lightly used (6k) 2014 Overland at a Chevy dealer in North Carolina for just a few grand more than the best offers i got for the 2012 ones.

Couple of negotiating mistakes you can keep on file for future reference.

Taking a friend with you is a signal to sales that you are looking not buying.

NEVER tell a sales person what you want to pay. When they ask me that question I answer $59.99/month

Also, the two dealers you went to are large multi model high pressure movers. Its very rare nowadays but I try to find mom and pop dealers when leasing a car

Re: dealerships in NYC

I have bought several cars in NYC but my most recent vehicle I found in Franklin NJ and I will tell you this, I have received so many follow up emails, service specials and even birthday wishes from them, which equates to nothing tangible for me given the distance but it shows they go the extra mile to maintain your business. By far the worst dealer i have bought from was Manhattan JCD, once the sale was done that was it, no communication, no folow up no nothing...I also have been to Major Jeep-they sucked as well as did Geoffre in Bklyn. My advice is shop around for the truck you want out of state if you can and experience how other dealers do business.

Re: dealerships in NYC

I still stand behind my opinion that Manhattan Jeep sucks balls.


And as far as sales go I bought my SRT at Westbury. Greg Leonardo was my salesman. Great guy to deal with.
