2013 Purchasing Help
Hi all. So Im 90% sure im gonna get a new(er) jeep. I've decided that I want to go with a '13 Overland. I dont mind the '14's, they just dont quite do it for me. BTW this will be the first car where I negotiate myself.

So I went to a dealer near my office, they have a '13 Overland 4x4 Hemi in stock. Its Mineral Gray on Saddle which is a combo im definitely interested in. Also it has Adaptive cruise control/ blind spot & quadra drive II and the Summit grille (threw me off at first).

MSRP has it at $49,180...told me out the door is $41,205 + Tax title etc = $45,511.

Now when I throw an invoice together For the same model I get $46,006.00..ive been reading that some people have been getting new '13s recently for 11% off invoice? my calculations this would be approx $40,045.34 which isnt too bad if I compare that to the out the door price they gave me (wrong to compare that?).

Heres the thing though, its a Demo that was used by the "owners wife" and has 4,964 miles on it, so it wont be new-new, i'll have the warranty though...Im just wondering if anyone thinks I may be able to get them to play ball in the high 30's before trade in..I plan to throw in my 07 WK Limited w/ 73,000 at the end for a trade in. Its been kept in solid condition, Im hoping i can get them to give me 15-16 for it.

Sorry for the essay, I just like hearing others opinions and most of my good friends arent that helpful when it comes to these type of things.

I bought a '13 Overland 4x4 with the Hemi with 7,700 miles on it just under a month ago for $37,500. They had a price on it of $40,990. I think MSRP on mine was around $47,150 when it was new, but I wasn't provided the original window sticker.

Re: 2013 Purchasing Help
That's not a demo, that's a used vehicle. Will you be the second owner? You should be able to find a much better deal.

Re: 2013 Purchasing Help
Agreed, you can get a much better price on a 13 with that many miles on it.

Re: 2013 Purchasing Help
Second owner technically but i guess the car was never titled? The salesman really sucked and I couldnt get a real answer..they had 3 overlands in the showroom though all with under 5g miles each one said demo which i dont get. I'll have to keep searching the tri state area/ pa

Re: 2013 Purchasing Help
Ask for the Carfax - if it has never been titled then it will show on Carfax as never being titled. I stupidly got fooled into buying a "dealer demo" car that had 4,800 miles on it - but it was actually a short term lease turn in.

Either way, as others have said above $45k OTD is a lot of money for a used/dealer demo car with 5k miles on it. The $37,500 was OTD.

Ouch, that's high for a 13 model. You can almost get a 14 with those options at that price (maybe a little higher depending on the dealer).

Re: 2013 Purchasing Help
Yeah. Does not seem right at all. I'm trying to be patient and find the right deal, seeing less and less of the mineral gray metallic which i really like but it wont be a deal breaker if i end up with black.

I got a fully loaded 13 Summit 5.7 4x4 for $42K about a month ago. That doesn't sound like a good deal with all those miles.

Re: 2013 Purchasing Help
Thats including incentives correct?

Dcbullets 05-31-2013 12:53 PM

Re: 2013 Purchasing Help
yup, they had $1,500 incentives for the HEMI. They also gave me $32K for a 2011 4runner, which is about $5K more than I thought they'd give.

Re: 2013 Purchasing Help
I think 41k is too high! I'd try to get it for 37-38k before tax and fees because of those miles. Good luck!
