Re: Help! Is this a good deal?? 2014 Summit

I love how there is no Carfax report listed!
They're trying to hide it. In the description, it says "This vehicle has been repaired." or something along those lines. Sigh... whoever comes to buy it probably won't be asking a single question. Eventually they will get someone stupid enough to come along and purchase it.
I'm just glad you went into this with at least some concern and then realized it wasn't really that big of a deal.

Keep your good Jeep.

...meanwhile I will, and the rest of us will continue to do whatever we can to improve quality. Our warranty claims are down considerably for last month! Even *my* jaw dropped with our numbers! While I probably can't release the numbers... it was

XX/1000.

Yeah I kind of wondered this too! I thought they seamed all to easy to deal with. Either they were the best dealership in the world or there are red flags about the Summit they were not telling me and are anxious to get rid of it.

I mean from the very beginning, when talking numbers they did little to no push back on what I was offering. Also I asked if I could keep my overland wheels and swap them with the Summit, without even thinking, they said no prob!

Part of me wonders if they would of even given me the Summit for an even trade for my Overland. I wouldn't be surprised if they would of taken that deal as much as it appeared they wanted to get rid of the Summit. Probably for the dealer, getting a non-lemon'd titled vehicle in my Overland for their Lemon'd Summit would be a huge win for them.

Haha, great to hear!! Thanks for the inside information. My Jeep has been trouble free so far.

I would of beat my head through a wall if I had gotten the Summit and then started having problems knowing that I gave up my perfectly good problem free Overland for it

Re: Help! Is this a good deal?? 2014 Summit

I know for a fact that I don't know ANYBODY (on the line) who doesn't have pride and perfectionism in their job.

...and if they didn't, I made them care!

It's really simple, really. I only have ONE line to tell everybody.

"Do your job as if your mom may want a Jeep."

Re: Help! Is this a good deal?? 2014 Summit

I believe you made the right decision. At least with your Overland you know it has been babied. I would not make the move for another used vehicle if I was you. Now if you decided to trade up to a new Summit, that would make more sense even though it would cost more.

I agree 100%, at least with the Overland, I bought it new, so I know everything it's been through. Where as the used Summit, being it came from North Carolina, who knows what it has been through and back before it ended up in Wisconsin. I feel better knowing mine hasn't been abused.

My factory ordered Summit is being delivered today or tomorrow to my dealer. I look forward to experiencing my first ever Jeep and it comforts me to hear that the numbers are getting better.

Sounds like you bought a great GC but liked it so much you wanted to explore the "higher" options. Glad you did your due diligence and alleviated any options what ifs and that will help you whenever you decide to buy your next GC...the all new 2017?

Oh yes!! I wonder what the next refresh for Jeep will be!! I'm thinking they at least need to go all LED.

I think you made the right decision it sounds like that thing was a little ragged out probably owned by someone that didn't care about it. Concerning the HK stereo make sure you test it out with some kind of media like an SD card, XM sounds like total crap it is to compressed. use the same piece of media when you are making a comparison between the two.
