Re: Haggling for a 2012

Look at the item above (spare tire lock). At least in the 2011 the spare tire is only access from inside the car, thus not needed.

Re: Your Opinion Please - Trade in 2011 Overland

This is flawed math.

A 5 year old vehicle with 60K miles has a trade in value of ~14K
So 40K - 14K = 26,000/60 = $434/month.

So not the greatest deal if you are typically a long term owner...

Re: Should I buy this Jeep? 2011 29K Laredo X

I do have a sample contract. I agree, the float and abandonment is how they make money, but seems like a costly contract that is really just on goodwill.
