Of course, I did a lot of research. Here, Edmunds, TrueCar. Big mistake, TrueCar. All that did was get me a ton of emails and phone calls - instantly! All dealers were trying to sell me what I did not want. Any color, too, as long as it is black. Not there is anything wrong with black.
I sent all dealers who contacted me my exact build sheet, pdf, from jeep.com, and asked to be contacted by email only, and to provide out-the-door pricing
I seem to have made some over the top request... Something they’ve never heard of🙄
It’s been interesting.
1 dealer got back within a couple of hours, under invoice and gave me what doc fees would be
1 dealer gave me what might be a good price, but is not answering my questions about fees
1 dealer gave me “invoice pricing” that was substantially over what I reasearched. And then asked how much I was willing to pay over invoice, “because they are a business and need to make money” (unsolicited info...)
1 said he would get back to me....36 hours now
1 no acknowledgement beyond TrueCar sales nonsense
I’ll wait another day or so and probably go one more round.
$44765 is MSRP
Best offer so far is $41600 ( just below invoice depending on site) plus $397 in fees, $135 reg
MA has no limit on doc fees...
I don’t know how all these folks claim to get 4 and 5% under invoice. I don’t see that happening here, not without unnecessay stress.
Plus I want to get this in before ordering closes
