Re: Questions on Placing a JGC Order with Dealer

Just relax. Do what is confortable for you. You are not marrying the car... you can get a different one whenever you want and as often as you can afford.

Re: Questions on Placing a JGC Order with Dealer

My dealer is saying 2-3 months to get the vehicle. If it's 3-4 weeks I could live with that a lot easier. Anybody know what an accurate estimate is? I'm in Oregon if that matters.

People in Oregon (wherever that is) are not allowed to order Jeeps.

Funny. Just mentioned it from a transit time stand point.

You mean I would never get a New Jeep !! Plenty of other choices that seem to have much less issues - but the problem is that I really like the '14 JGC - just not sure I can deal with the issues. I am amazed at how many people just paid 40-50k for a new Jeep and are so casual with the repairs in the 1st weeks of Ownership when a new vehicle should be at it's best !!

The Jeep has to last me 6 years and 120,000 miles which is MUCH LONGER than most marriages these days !! My wife and I alternate getting new vehicles every 6 years and we both average about 20k per year. We can only afford 1 car payment every 3 years, so I would have the Jeep paid off in 3 years when it's her time to get a new one. Has worked great this way for 22 years !!

Yes, alot of GREAT & VALUABLE info here - Thanks to everybody !!

6 Years ago when I bought my MDX I swore I would never get another American SUV again. Since then we have both been spoiled by 48 month 50k mile warranty and Always getting a courtesy car overnight for any service taking loner than 1 hour from both Acura and Lexus. So still trying to figure out how to get to work if the Jeep is in for service for 3 or 4 days.

I have said it before, I Really, Really, Really Love the New '14 JGC, but not sure if I could ever cope with seeing water in my Headlights !!! So just trying to get up my nerve !!

Happy Easter !!
Tom

It's either water in your headlights or tears in your eyes when you see everyone else with the 2014 grand Cherokee and you don't have one.

Yes, you are right !!

Question: When does the Dealer get credit for the Sale - when an Order is placed, or when the vehicle gets Delivered ?

I was considering going back to the Dealer today for "end of month, end of quarter" but just got invited to a family event I can't get out of, so may have to wait until next week !!

They're all usually trying to meet their individual end of the month quotas.

Re: Questions on Placing a JGC Order with Dealer

So would they get credit TODAY just for getting my order placed on a Jeep that won't be in until May ?

The only credit that you can control are all the ones you're going to negotiate to get your new jeep,let the dealer fend for themselves.

Re: Questions on Placing a JGC Order with Dealer

Yes, that makes sense.

Just trying to decide if I should Piss off Family to try and order today, or make family happy and order next week after work ?! (As far as getting a good end of quarter deal is concerned).

Re: Questions on Placing a JGC Order with Dealer

Some people are casual about the issues is because no car is perfect. If your worried about 6yr and 120,000 miles then get the extended warranty, easy enough. If everything you heard of people having these issues scare you that much then walk away.. If not and you really want the vehicle, then get it.

If you haven't already contacted dealers to get pricing then your just wasting time, get in contact with them. Go test drive the vehicle you are wanting and see if it has the issues people are saying.

As we would say....Piss or get off the pot! make a decision and live with it. Otherwise go look at another brand. Sorry if I offend you but there are a few people on here that are whining about every little thing and can't figure out if they want one or not, OR need to escalate it up to Chrysler if the dealer is fixing it.
