I see people who buy a used cars without test driving them. They are on Judge Judy.

Again, I don't see it being at all unreasonable for someone buying your old Wrangler to ask to take it for a test drive first. I am at a loss as to why you are so strongly against it. Simply not allowing others to drive your Wrangler just doesn't cut it, under these circumstances, and how much time a test drive will take doesn't either. I mean, we're not talking about a coast-to-coast trek here.

What are you afraid they will find? The "death wobble" from your lift?

Wasn't meant to be today.

That is really sketchy! I've traded in many vehicles without an issue. The one time I gave a dealer the keys to drive I see three guys load into my vehicle. They came back 15-20 minutes later and the car smelled like burning rubber. They offered me 7k less than the dealership the next town over as well. Learned my lesson lol.

They were not purchasing the vehicle today. The vehicle would not be traded in for a couple months. I was looking for a quote on an order and my trade in. There was no deal between us. If we were on the same page and come to agreements fine, but wanting to take my Jeep out right off the bat without talking any numbers isn't happening.

The Jeep is a 2016, 10k miles, with high quality parts. It has no issues let alone death wobble.

I didn't mean to make this thread negative. It is filled with awesome information. Let's move on and be positive! I hope myself and others have luck this week!

Stop me if you think that you've heard this one before.

Every day is like Sunday.

Bizarre Love Triangle.

My roommate in college was into all those bands and it kind of rubbed off along with REM, The Jesus and Mary Chain and The Sister of Mercy. I remember seeing CNN announcing a live interview with The Sisters of Mercy so I yelled at my roommate to come downstairs and check it out. Turned out this "Sisters of Mercy" was a convent, aka a group of nuns. We both got a kick out of that.

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

If I were a dealer and wanted to drive a prospective trade in and the owner refused then the owner could go elsewhere. Owners know their vehicles front and back and know what to do to hide problems.
Its possible to accelerate slow and hide problems in the trannie, vibrations in the steering wheel, etc.
If you are worried about the driver then just tell them you want to sit in the back while they test drive it.

Angry re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Got quotes from 3 dealerships today for Rubicon HR Unlimited. There was only $165 spread between the lowest and the highest quote, plan to order as soon as my local dealer opens tomorrow. 1 dealer @ 500 miles, 1 dealer 260 miles away, 1 just 6 miles from my home.
Now the wait begins! ������
All 3 were great, only wish could have bought from each!
Guess someone needs to start a 2017 Waiting Room Thread!!!!!

The new build sheet offers a swing gate support option and a Mopar electronic vehicle tracking option. I do not recall seeing those on the 2016 build sheet.

I found the Mopar tracking online. Does anyone know more about the swing gate support upgrade?

Who are the two closest dealers and your contact names? How much below MSRP did they quote? I wouldn't mind buying a HR.
Thanks

My understanding is it is an upgraded support with door reinforcement to allow an oversize spare tire to be hung without mods. Didn't think that would applyl to me, so asked no further questions. Sorry, I know that's not much, but maybe a tad more than you had before

Koons was 5% below FWP plus $495, Beamans in Murfreesboro, Tn was $165 less. They have another way to figure their pricing. My local dealer was $45 over Beamans, but because of distance am buying from them. No dealer knew what the others pricing was but I was upfront and honest with each and each knew I was getting quotes from the others and knew I was not going to use their price to get a better price from the other dealer. I do not believe in getting a price for the purpose of trying to beat another dealer down on their price.
If they know we aren't playing games with them, they are less likely to play games and makes the buying experience much more pleasant. I want to thank Jeep Garage and all members because of all the information here. Knowledge is power, and Milous when looking at the times you post, when do you SLEEP!???

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

For those of you placing orders, what sort of deals are you seeing? I am getting 3% under the 2016 invoice price for a 2017. So that's probably roughly around 4% under invoice.
