Re: Florida, ready to purchase 2014 JGC
Hi All..... Myself and another forum member met up for the first time at a SE Florida dealership armed to negotiate. I was ready to buy with checkbook in hand. He was serious but not ready to pull the trigger. We were trying to get close to the DC Buyers Group price.
He walked out with a gorgeous 2014 Overland 4x4 V8 in Maximum Steal with Black interior. Close to the DC price. His included a trade that worked out for him.
I, on the other hand, got almost as close but walked away. Why you may ask? Well the 2014 Summit 4x4 V8 had that CD player that takes up so much storage (both the top storage compartment and half the bottom part) for $395 extra. The price they gave me was $700 more than the DC deal AND their fee was $400 more making it $1,100 more than DC price in an apples to apples comparison. Plus of course I was getting and paying for the $395 CD player. So I would rather order one without the CD player to save the $395 and of course the $1,100 better price. My potential trade was much newer (2011) and they just weren't will to give what I wanted. They would give me $1,000 more off the price of the new one if I traded but the trade price was low. Well, close but no cigar.
The said they'd sell for $50,680 on a $56,280 sticker price. But they have a $899 dealer fee which is very high even by Florida dealership standards. Perhaps they will call me back as they indicated that it isn't near the end of the month yet....
Can't find EXACTLY what I want at a dealer so looks like I am ordering......will do DC unless an area dealership matches.
The other forum member's deal shows it can be done.....

Perhaps if people are absolutely serious to buy (probably some or most will be orders if you aren't flexible --- I know I am not flexible on what I want so mine is an order unless already in the system).....maybe we can do a group buy........
