Are there any other methods I should consider?
I used the fax method back in the 90's to get a screamin' deal on a Chrysler minivan. And, if price is critical, and/or you don't intend to mod your rig, this method can work well. But having a relationship with a dealer (and perhaps paying a bit more) can pay off when it comes to warranty claims, service, etc. Not always (I've had it matter in the past, and I've had it ignored in the past) but sometimes. But a good relationship (witness Pat's contribution to this thread, and Milous and ArcherAce) can be invaluable.

This is similar to what I did, but in the end I still ended up going into the dealership and spoke to the internet sales manager in person and was able to get a better quote. I think it had to do with the fact that I was a real buyer. Note that I only went to the one that offered me the best deal initially and it was also one of the closer ones to my house so that worked out well.

I only dealt with one dealership and was able to get close to 6% off of MSRP on the final price. Now granted this will be the 3rd vehicle we have gotten from them in the last 5 years ('12 GC and '14 ram) so the sales manager knew us well and negations were much easier.

I'm getting invoice AND ALL holdback money. I assume this is as good as it gets? I also put in for this golden ticket thing by calling and asking for a brochure. Should this take care of everything that I can do concerning price?

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Information Thread

check the pinned thread about companies that offer deals with Chrysler, that will get you 1% below invoice if you have someone that works for one of those companies

I'm already at 3% below dealer invoice. That's all the meat off the bones from the dealership. I assume I would be going for cash direct from Chrysler? I'm a tread lightly member, can that 2% be added (subtracted) to the 3% under invoice price?

I did this with the 10 nearest dealerships. A few wouldn't even reply, some refused to give quotes, 3 were helpful. The fleet manager at the dealer I bought my Liberty from in 2002 didn't reply to my direct emails or voicemails even though I went in a spoke to him personally first.

One said to give them my lowest written quote and they'd beat it when I asked them to price up my order... I told him the few dollars I'd save by letting him snake the deal that others work honestly for wouldn't be worth it.

In the end, one dealer was extremely helpful and tried to earn my business. He ended up being my third lowest price... AND HE STILL WON MY ORDER! Relationships work both ways and I believe in rewarding those that work harder for my business.

So that is invoice minus 3% of your MSRP, correct? Are you accounting for any dealer fees?

I've heard of people getting 5% below invoice in both Philly and DC, which is essentially employee pricing, but not sure what kind of dealer fees they are then paying.

Affiliate pricing is 1% below invoice which can easily be made into 2% below invoice because the dealers are given 1% of invoice as part of this program. The only fee the dealer should be tacking on is a $75 fee.

As I've said before a lot depends on where you are and how far you're willing to travel for a deal...

I had negotiated 2% under invoice on a Willy's Unlimited using the Tread Lightly affiliate program. Now that I'm moving up to a Rubicon I'm asking for a little more off invoice.

We were given disinformation.
I didn't attack anybody.
I was, however, trying to accurately answer DSI questions as I am actually using them right now.
Pretty sure he retorted, but I took the high road and ignored.
I can leave the forum if that's the consensus.
Was trying to help others with my experience.
I believe I also said let's all move on.
Go back and read it all before flagging anybody.

Tax/doc./license are unavoidable.

Yes it can be added. Any rebates like affiliates are reimbursed so the dealer isn't losing that 2%. If they have done everything right and have been fair and upfront, you might want to ask them to split it with you. I understand wanting to get the best deal and save as much money as possible, but at the same time, throwing the dealer a bone might work out in your benefit in the long run. You get to 4% under and they make 1% over net, roughly $300 or so. It's your deal and your money, and there will be a lot of people telling you "screw the stealer", and that the $300 or so buys a lot of mods. It's a fair point too and I don't knock the lots of mods thought process. Like I said, it's your money, but letting the dealer make $300 plus any quota money on a $30k plus sale shouldn't be seen as being taken advantage of(like so many people think), and I think you will reap the rewards in the future.

MSRP on my JKUR is 40,375
Invoice is $37,907
Holdback is $1,181
I'm paying $36,726

Is there anything to get it lower?
