Cost me $3610.00 - aprox 1600 will come back to me in 6-8 weeks as they cancelled the extended warranty on the old one that was 3 months old...
all said and done. Cheaper than estimated repairs and I got a new jeep.
One has to know how to play dealer games. I never trade for less than blue book. In this case, blue book only goes to 2011....but I settled for that price...then having them match other dealer pricing on the new one...bam... ~2K after my check comes back. one needs to be prepared to walk away from a deal... I did just that at 2 other dealers... the 3rd one was willing to take what I was willing to spend.
Edit. I did make 2 payments on the old one so I guess that cost me another 600... in the scheme of things, it was still cheaper than renting one for three months
