Take Koons Jeep for example. They're selling a wrangler with a MSRP of $40,310 for $35,941 (less than employee pricing). If they can offer that price without haggling, why can't I offer my local dealer a *little more* and be unreasonable?

New 2016 Jeep Wrangler Sahara For Sale in Arlington - Washington DC
Remember Koons charges a $599 document fee. Also the listed price includes all possible discounts including military discount most likely.

Like I previously said 10% is possible but you will have to keep contacting dealerships until you find one that will do it. You may need to haggle with 20 dealerships. It is time consuming. Is a few hundred worth all the added time? If so, go for it.

Koons is 5% to 7% off invoice with no hassle which is well known plus a $599 doc fee which most dealers charge you something similar anyway as well. For some models like the Hard Rock the discount is only 5% but keep in mind depending on where you live you might have to travel to get your Wrangler which adds cost. I went to my local dealer to order the 2017 just to cut the hassle of registration, service (2 free oil changes) and took the 1% off deal (Affiliate Pricing or tread lightly). I didn't ask for a portion of the dealer hold back as my time is more valuable then going to 10 dealerships looking for 3% to 4% difference as there is nothing local in my area that will sell you a Jeep Wrangler for +2% off invoice unless they need to get rid of last years Jeeps which I was not looking for and my area has no issues selling Jeeps off the lot.

EP pricing is the rock bottom I think you can find locally and the holdback most dealerships will not let you take away from them. Now there are dealers who need to make the sales numbers for extra incentives from FCA so that is where some get lucky and get those 10% discounts. As said here prior it's far and few and you are going to be looking at a dealer who is hungry for the sale. Locally that does not happen often and our local dealers are large and packed with paying customers above invoice so they don't need my sale etc.

Also keep in mind one wants to be known as a good customer not the one who they sold a car to below actual cost. In the long run they might be less than helpful if any delivery issues arise or problems.

Just my input with no real hard facts so take it or leave it.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Well, yes. EP is a program that "Fiat" backs and gives the dealer more kickback. If oyu don't have a control number they don't get the kickback and you don't get the price (or $100 over). I am surprised that they came down below invoice.

First, that's a 2016, not a 2017. Second, don't believe wht you see on the web.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Look at the fine print. That price does not include "Freight" and they added this at the bottom of the page.
"* The dealer advertised price may not reflect specific dealer offers, and may be subject to certain terms and conditions as indicated in the advertisement. Consult your dealer for more information and complete details."

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

The dealer I bought from gave me invoice minus the holdback, which is about 3% under invoice. They do that for all Wranglers, whether on the lot or ordered. I think you'll find that to be the standard practice with most dealers that are in with True Car. It's a fair deal, not great. I didn't know about Koons until after I had ordered.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

In Houston I got my '17 special ordered Sahara for about 4.5% below invoice, or 9.5% below MSRP, zero haggling.
Feel free to PM me for more info.

Now if it would just enter D1 status!
C'mon september orders!
