Re: need help on decision for new jeep!
You talking about comparing the V8 with rebates and steep discounts to a newly released CRD. I seriously doubt you will find the CDR with steep discounts anytime soon, although a friends/family type below invoice deal will probably lessen the impact assuming the CRD is not restricted like the STR8 is. You may also find mandatory premium option requirements... but just saying pick a number you like and go with it. You are not going to rationalize the purchase of a CRD based on sound economic considerations, but if you like its performance and coolness, or need or want one, and have some patience, buy it.
