Our first Cherokee

Here it is, folks - the first one to hit our lot. It's a Latitude V6 4x4 (Active Drive II) in Billet Silver with UConnect 8.4.

Re: Buy or Lease?

TIP 1 - why should the dealer sell it to you for less than invoice? Every deal is different, but on a new highly-anticipated model it can be hard to get a less-than-invoice price without some other...

Re: Buy or Lease?

"RIP OFF" = overpaying for what you get.

Questions to consider:
- Which vehicle do I like best?
- If it's the Cherokee, do I see enough extra value to justify a higher monthly payment? If so -...

Re: General D1 questions

If you're asking this about a Cherokee, I would suggest that "normal" schedules don't apply. The software flash and retesting threw a big wrench into their stated timeline. Yes it's hard to wait, but...

Re: when are they being shipped to dealers

Our first two are a Limited V6 FWD with Nav and a Latitude V6 4x4 with 8.4A and should be shipped tomorrow. A few days later, our first two Trailhawks are being shipped. Both of those are V6, sound...

Re: when are they being shipped to dealers

Our sales department received email confirmation a short time ago that the Cherokees have begun shipping from their storage yards. We are told we should see them in about a week.

Re: 7 months in and I finally figured out what those buttons are for.

I don't always do it at test drive time, but I ALWAYS do it at delivery! Can't believe so many salespeople don't go over such a commonly-used feature.

Re: Ordering my TRAILHAWK

It seems like whenever someone tells the details of their deal, no matter how happy they are with it someone else will pick it apart and tell them they got taken for a ride.

Re: 2014 cherokee TV commercials are on

This is the only Jeep Cherokee commercial on Jeep's youtube channel.

I've seen an SUV commercial with dinosaurs, but I thought that was Buick? EDIT - yup, it is.

Nothing is free. If they are advertising it as something they include, you pay for it somewhere.

As for "how to get the best deal" - just make sure your local dealer shows you the factory invoice...

Re: Carmax new car pricing

People make too much of a mystery out of "invoice." If you have a good upfront dealer, he will show you the factory invoice and give you a good deal relative to that. I do this every day.

Re: Ordering my TRAILHAWK

Her official answer is "SOON."

The regional business centers are saying before the end of October, but all she would say is SOON, so she can be right. ;)

Re: TrailHawk vs Limited headlights

Re: Does Quadra-trac II help in rainy days?

Our Chrysler trainer calls their AWD and 4WD systems "biased." The GC system is RWD-biased, meaning that it still has more power in the rear when functioning in 4WD.
