Re: '12 & '13 Owners - Class action suit against Jeep

so you think that because they made improvements on the newer models you are entitled to some sort of monetary gain because you bought the first production of the new model?

How were the lead paint chips with the milk this morning?

I hear you...want a new iPad but I know another one has to be right around the corner.

Back to the topic at hand...a little loyalty cash would be sweet but I am not holding my breath (nor am I considering dumping my 2012)

Re: '12 & '13 Owners - Class action suit against Jeep

So maybe I don't understand what loyalty cash is.. I thought it was basically an incentive to stay in the same brand, and was available for every buyer regardless of year, if they were trading in a same brand car or truck or whatever...

So is there something else that they offer as loyalty cash? Like if you bought the 12 and want the 14 is there more money available for that sort of thing?

there is no loyalty money given right now...nor do I think that there will ever be....but to be honest....I would be a sweet gig to maybe give a 1k off or something if upgrading....I don't know, something would be cool but im with the guy above....not holding my breathe

Re: '12 & '13 Owners - Class action suit against Jeep

When they are closing the order banks down every month because they can't build any more, why would they start giving incentives?

Maybe if the Cherokee takes too many sales from the Grand Cherokee this fall ...

Completely agree. But say you had a '10 and were upgrading to a '14. Maybe SRT loyalty would be cool. Only for returning customers. Like ourselves hahahah

Re: '12 & '13 Owners - Class action suit against Jeep

I see the intent behind what he's trying to say, but I don't believe any court in this land would accept such a case but who knows these days with everybody suing and feeling entitled to something in return based upon initial poor judgment or lack of knowlege on their own part.

I could probably see how a 2013 buyer could feel but then again, it's not like infomation wasn't prevalent in the media on what was coming for the refreshed 2014 model.

I myself bought a 2012 late last year in August, but I got a really good deal at buying it around $58k or $59k. I went to trade mine in and new that my trade value would probably be pretty low given the new 2014s which are out. You can buy a used 2012 with low mileage for about $51k or $52k right now. The trade I got was around $48k and the dealer was willing to deal on the 2014, so I got it for around $64k. I paid the difference for what I owed on the 2012 to the trade in value and still kept my payments about the same on the 2014.

Bottom line - if you're going to buy cars like this and want the latest and greatest- quite whining, buck up, pay what you owe and move on!!

Now - I must admit, I do like the idea about a loyalty incentive.....

I am now preparing a Class action suit against all involved parties - the seller, Sony, Ebay, PayPal, U.S.P.S. as well as Best Buy. Still trying to find a lawyer to take it on, hoping to get at least $50k.

Wow Milous, I had respect for you on how you help everyone here with your inside Jeep knowledge. I guess I have to re-evaluate that respect.

And for the others, very misinformed know-it-alls out there. I've been very happy myself with the outcomes of class-action lawsuits over the years. Billion dollar companies are not "above the law". Many negative sayers were proven wrong with the positive outcomes of these lawsuits.

So Dguth, it cost you $16,000 to use your Jeep for 8 months? That doesn't bother you?

My selling dealer didn't want to give me a trade-in price as he knew it would offend me. He still has 13's with no 14's coming in.

I went to a different dealer today. The trade-in value is in the toilet because of the early released '14 models out now. It would cost me $18,000 plus tax to get the '14 after only 7 months of ownership.

No rebates, no incentives no loyalty money. That is just like being in the toilet...pretty crappy!

Milhous is the man on this site! The guys helps everyone out with questions they may have. No need to reevaluate anything. Milhous just like all of us were making a joke out of a joke thread. Don't single him out. Come after all of us who laughed at the guy starting this thread!

Re: '12 & '13 Owners - Class action suit against Jeep

As a Canadian I see a lot of frivolous lawsuits down in the USA,and they all go through the court system,and sometimes people get compensated,like the person that sue MC Donald for serving them hot coffee that they burn them self with and won over $500,000.00
A gentleman was a lawyer suing an Asian Dry cleaner a few millions for not doing his suite the way he wanted,and so on,the court need to look at all these cases and dismiss the most frivolous.
