Re: Need advice from experience Jeep Owners

You can't get a 4x2 Jeep. You just can't. I mean, you CAN, but you shouldn't.

Re: lease a 2015 or wait until 2016?

Just find a lease calculator. Please do some research about how leases work first though. They can be very good deals if you know what you're doing. Or they can be very bad deals. Don't focus on the...

Re: lease a 2015 or wait until 2016?

Yeah. That's too much. You're paying about $50-60 more than you should have been per month. Oh well. Live and learn.

Re: lease a 2015 or wait until 2016?

.094? That can't be right. That's 225% interest. To figure your interest rate, multiply the money factor by 2400. It might be .00094. Even then, it's way high for a lease. I'm afraid you got taken. ...

Re: lease a 2015 or wait until 2016?

It's on your paperwork. If you can't find it, you can calculate it if you know:

MSRP
Net cap cost
Payment
Residual

But, dude, you leased a car without knowing how much you're paying??!? I...

Re: lease a 2015 or wait until 2016?

I got this lease literally a week ago so I bet the numbers you'll get will be similar.

As far as the negative equity thing goes - I leased a 2014 that I just traded for this 2015 and I had $2k in...

Re: lease a 2015 or wait until 2016?

Lease rates are excellent right now. On my 2015 Overland I got:

.00022 money factor (about .53% interest rate)
53% residual

This was a 36 month, 15k mile lease for the CRD. On the hemi,...

Re: Looking to buy a slightly used 2014 5.7l Overland What should i pay?

You can get new ones for just a couple thousand more. I traded in my 2014 with 30k miles for 34.5 and I was pretty happy with that amount. Picked up a brand new CRD model for $48k.

Re: Looking for recomendations for Extended Warranties

It bears repeating, lest it get lost in the discussion, that the unlimited/unlimited plans are NOT transferable unless you purchase in NC or FL. Caveat emptor and all that. :)
