Re: GC purchase in need

they want it because a) they can't keep them on the lot, b) they want to sell you a new one.

I get them too, they act serious until they make their offer, the way they talked about my 2011, I'm surprised they wanted it!!

Re: GC purchase in need

Is yours a 70th Anniversary model? If so that's probably why they want it so bad.

Every automaker sends these out. Nothing special about them. Just another way for them to get you in the door.

Re: GC purchase in need

We get those come-ons all the time from the Toyota dealer, about our Highlander. For the fun of it I took the HL in and had them appraise it. They offered $6500, for a SUV that booked at $14,000.

Throw the letter away.

LOL... that's to let you know how "serious" they are about wanting your Jeep.

Re: GC purchase in need

I guess it got your attention......doubt you will get as much as it implies. I get similar type of mailings saying they will give me incredible prices above market......yeah sure, whatever.

Re: GC purchase in need

I was going to take them up on a similar offer, but then I got an email that I have a big inheritance waiting at a foreign consulate, so I figure I'll just buy a couple of Land Rovers and a Rolls Royce instead. As soon as I wire the money to the consulate so they can forward me my inheritance, that is.

Re: GC purchase in need

I've gotten a few "we need your car" fliers from a dealership that handles a competing make over the past few months. The funny part is that their suggested replacement is not a comparable model so it's obviously just following a formula that says "their product line A maps to our product line B".
