Switched Religions today! :)

Ok, i have officially switched religions (land rover to Jeep).

Pre ordered a 2012 WK2 Overland today
V8, mineral gray, black interior, Off road II pkg (still don't know why the price went up)
1,200 under invoice via USAA. No joy on using costco...no blame on them, Jeep Escondido was simply horrible, or at least one particular employee was.

Big props for Jeep Carlsbad, made the experience effortless.

Clock is now ticking. I wonder what the over/under is on when i will get it.

Funny
Land rovers problem is that everything sold in the states is more like a range rover light and not a land rover

It's a luxury car that goes Off road rather than a off roader that is luxurious

Will definately give feedback on new tranny

Can you elaborate on how you got 1200 under invoice on a 2012 since ZAG pricing through USAA still shows 2011 pricing? Thanks.

Re: Switched Religions today! :)

Sure, USAA gave me a 2,200 under invoice quote for 2011. 1k of that was for a special rebate/incentive. I went to one of the 3 dealers they recommended, and asked them what they could do for me. They said they would give me the 1,200 off invoice for a new 2012. we built it up, msrp 47,010, fwp 44,091...1,200 off came to 42,891. That was close enough for me, and i just pulled the trigger...still no reasonable explanation for the AWY price increase, but i moved forward anyway. Anyway 500 down, and now i wait. btw, if the price changes while i am waiting, good or bad, i get the revised price....maybe someone at jeep will figure out the mistake in the next month or two...but i doubt it...

I should have mine Tuesday. It will be eight weeks from order date. You made the right decision.

Re: Switched Religions today! :)

Well, i am keeping the rover, so i guess i didn't switch religions, but just added one! . I guess i am now multi-denominational?

77 cherokee: good luck on your wk2. Mine was supposed to be delivered on 8/28...i think its still at the lot near the train. No updates since 8/18/11...oh well, i save a car payment this month...

Thanks Bromhead. My sales manager made a phone call and got it delivered today, and I picked it up. Check it out in the Showoff Thread.
