Agreed. I was just questioning the ha being advertised "under $400" because it's usually a ridiculous cap cost reduction.

I went through this with several salesman when I was shopping last month, they couldn't get over the fact that I started by telling them that I wasn't going to reduce cap cost, and they kept trying to come back to is.

I had to quit on a couple of them completely because they just couldn't understand it.

It's like dealers are stuck in this "need something down" thing and use the X amount/mo to sell it. Everyone would be better served to realize they should negotiate total price, then work from there. You know the residual, you know the money factor, it's pretty easy to figure out what your monthly payment is going to be.

Asking for a payment right off the bat is playing into the same trap that dealers use with the "four square" sheet. You can negotiate payment later, if you want a couple more bucks off it's fine to say at the end "get me to $350 OTD and I'll sign right now" when you're at $360 is fine, because you're talking about an extra $350 or so off the total price, depending on tax rate.

Not directed at you, just wanted to echo your comments and get it out there again for others to read.

Depends on the region. Northwest currently has $1,000 cash back or 0% for 60 months. Can't have both.

I believe Northeast currently has better deals, something like $1,500 for Laredos and Limiteds and $2,500 for Overlands and HA's.

Re: High Altitude - End of Year Deal - Thoughts?

Im still actively shopping. The best deal i have found so far is $7100 off MSRP for a HA. I then get another $500 off the from Jeep(bonus cash postcard) and $500 USAA inventive(if you have USAA print off the form from the website). I got two offers for my trade at $29,500(dealer) and $30K(car max). For $12,719 i can trade my no option max steel overland with 27,000 miles for a HA with harmon kardon but cant get silver which is really the car i want. I have found granite, black, red and white. What do you guys think? Basically I'm looking at new tires and brakes soon for my overland and being out of warranty in 3 months. For $13K I reset the clock again.

High Altitude - End of Year Deal - Thoughts?

So you have a 2014 and are looking to get a 2015?

What condition is your Overland in? What does kbb.com show for top trade in value and top trade in price for it's condition?

Do you really like any of the HA available colors?

Price for the new HA sounds great.

Yes that's right. I got the 2014 in April of 2013. It's in excellent condition. I'm a neat freak when it comes to my car. KBB puts it around $30ish for trade-in value and $34K for retail. The car max guy said they sell my car retail for around $34.5K.

The dealer with the best price has a granite and a black. I'm wanting a lighter color than the granite, so the silver fits the bill. I don't really like the white, so that leaves silver.

High Altitude - End of Year Deal - Thoughts?

Have you tried building a silver HA on jeep.com and searching for one on the closest dealer lot that way? You can set it up and then keep changing the distance to dealers from your zip code until you find a silver one or a few. I think if you find a silver HA with HK for those prices I would take that deal. I really like my HA with HK.

Re: High Altitude - End of Year Deal - Thoughts?

Yeah. There is one local but it is the sales managers demo and has 1000 miles on it and doesn't have HK. There is another about 3 hours away but has the rear dvd system along with HK which makes it too expensive. The one that matches my specs is 500 miles away in another state and there pricing is too high. Compromising on the color and getting granite is probably my best bet. I just need to decide if i want to spend $13K or just keep what I have.
