  • When buying or leasing a new vehicle (grand cherokee), has the dealer tried to to sell an Ultimate Convenience Package? It is purportedly an upgraded service plan covering all scheduled maintence, tires/rims and more, at any dealer. Any thoughts? Is it worth it? Appreciate your comments. Thanks.

    Before I bought 2011 GC on June 11, now it has 7K miles w/o any problem. I have considered and took the test drive 2011 Ford Edge, Explorer, 2011 Kia Sorento EX V6, 2011 GMC Acadia. I understood GC has 5 speeds transmission and others have 6 speeds but the 5 was smoothest and quietest. GC is RWD. Good lucks.

    That is not a package specific to the GC. It's just a pure add on from the dealer with a large profit margin. They are usually a bad idea.

    Give us the details (how long, how much, what's covered) and we can give you a better answer.
  • In the past two months I have purchased a Jag XJL and Dodge Longhorn Laramie and was in the market for one more vehicle. I have tried driving everything from the Equus to the Gran Turismo BMW 535 to the Infinti QX56. One dealer keeps calling me about his Grand Cherokee
    Overland Summit. I am used to the smooth drive of a Lincoln Towncar and was pretty impressed with the Infiniti QX56 but NOT impressed with the 75000 dollar sticker price that the dealership was NOT willing to come down on. My Jag was priced at 81000 but I bought it for 75000 and the Pickup was priced at 49000 and bought that new for 38500. The Equus drove like a dream (better then ANY car I ever drove) but the dealer was not coming off sticker... but it appears that this Dodge Jeep dealer is willing to negotiate on a Grand Cherokee. I knew one friend that had a Jeep that lasted for years. Any advice on what I should pay for this Jeep? Thanks...
  • I paid a touch over $40k. I love the Jeep Overland so far, very comfortable ride.
  • Hi clrv,
    Here's another data point, we leased the new JGC Ltd V6 AWD (20in wheels & towing pkg) at the end of April. This decision was made after much scrutiny of X5, Q7, Q5, ML350, GL450, etc. as we have historically owned European cars. We also looked at the new Explorer, SRX, and Escalade. We were extremely impressed by the new JGC, and our final decision was based on three vectors:
    - Quality reassurance. The new JGC was made in conjunction with Mercedes when Daimler owned Chrysler. You can tell when behind the wheel or even when closing the door as the truck simply feels solid like a european car. This allayed much of our concerns on problems with former JGC models.
    - Value. The Jeep has a plethora of options at the accompanying price point which is difficult for any manufacturer to match.
    - Dealer experience. I anticipated a painful negotiation process but to my surprise, every Jeep dealer I contacted was transparent on the key numbers (e.g., MF's, RV's, and cap cost). I sourced our truck from our local dealer for well under invoice with $0 down, and I would gladly work with them again.

    I should also note the AWD system is fantastic. We have actually used the AWD, off-roading in both Joshua Tree and Yosemite, and we plan to take it to the mountains for ski season.

    Best of luck in your decision making.

    Cheers!

    I went to a jeep dealer in southern CA today to get a 2012 JGC Limited w/Media Center 730N upgrade. Out the door price promised by dealer was $38,100, $8000 down and fiance the rest ( 60 months ), but they wanted to charge 7.9% interest. That's ridiculously high!

    btw, my credit score is about 750

    So I'm wondering what was your interest rate?

    Thanks
  • That does seem ridiculous. I'm in San Diego, and I leased (36mo/15K miles) a 2011 JGC Limited V6 4x4 (20's & tow) from Bob Baker Carlsbad at the end of April. At the time, the details were as follows,
    - Sales price = $38337 ($700 below invoice)
    - RV = 45%
    - MF = 0.00046 (~1.1% interest)
    - $0 down

    Cheers!

    It's illegal to tie a price to the interest rate. I hope you got a purchase contract wit the agreed upon price. You can then get your own financing.

    7.9% interest is almost loan shark level!!! :P
  • I purchased a 2011 JGC Overland Hemi on Saturday, for a touch over $41k. Sunday morning I set up the uconnect with my iphone, it worked fine. 5 minutes later it didn't work. I deleted the pairing at least 6x, since sunday morning and today. Still end up with the same issue, "failed to play" on AUX, and the phone button on my steering wheel does nothing, nor does the VR button. Also tried to add pictures using a USB stick and the nav system doesn't recognize my USB drive. Beyond frustrated. I called the dealer and they need me to bring it back to the dealership to update it using the Chrysler computer. I live on an island, I think they should have to pay my round trip ferry fees! This should have been in top shape condition when I drove it off the lot.">
    Anyone else have a similar issue?

    No, I don't think they should pay for your ferry fees.

    Find out if all they're going to do is upgrade the Mygig software. If that's all they're doing, you can do that yourself. It's very easy.

    Just google "mygig update." The website I always use has a black baground with red letters (you can't post external websites here.)

    I'm not sure what MyGig version (or phone) you have, but this is the latest version:

    MyGIG Software Upgrade Version 2.402 (314 MB)

    - Fixed iPhone 4 Disconnect Issues.
    - Fixed System Mute on MY10 JK during remote start.
    - Revision B NOTE: The previous RER 2.402 CD update had a bad part number on the disc that was causing the REP WK updates to fail. This issue has been fixed on this new revision B CD Image. Although changes have been made there is no version change to this update. - If you have sucessfully installed RER 2.402 update there is no need to reinstall it since the only change is the CD part number.
  • If I download the MYGIG version 2.402 onto a disc or onto a usb stick, my nav doesnt recognize it. I tried to download pictures and music and it will not work.
    My phone is a 3g.

    Make sure you follow the instructions exactly. I've updated MyGig several times w/o any problems.

    Check out the two pages called:

    "Downloading, Extracting, And Burning Guide"
    and
    "Software Installation Walkthrough"

    Good luck.
  • I purchased (not a lease) a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland. This was the "base" Overland model and sticker was a little over $44k. It has the V-6 engine. Selling price was $37.3K and they offered financing of 3.75 for 60 months. Still expensive but it seemed like a fair deal.
  • Looking for best price on a new '12 Laredo with the E option package. Any ideas on what the best they are offering out there? I am in Lexington, KY but could go up to Cincinnati if need be. Thanks for the input.

    Check the TVM for your zipcode. You should be able to do better. Invoice is doable.
  • what is TVM?

    I have not seen many recent posts on prices paid. I'm looking closely at a 2011 JGC 4X4 with 70th ann pkg(basically the "X" pkg) navigation,tow and sunroof. The Edmunds TMV has a price of $34,760. Does this seem like a good price?

    I live in SE Pa. Thanks for any insight.
  • When I purchased an '06 JGC Laredo 4x4 65th anniversary edition, I got a total of 20+% off of MSRP. There was very little difference to the Limited except for Leather seats.
  • verdugoverdugo Posts: 2,015
    You can't compare a price you got in 06 to one in 11. The Grand Cherokees are actually selling well.

    To the OP, you should be able to get invoice price. That's easily doable.
  • Hi there, I just returned from a dealership feeling pretty good and was hoping to get those feelings confirmed. I sat with the dealer and priced out a build...a 2012 Laredo 4x2 with E Group ( mandatory), 26x package and Nav. The msrp was 35,515, the invoice (man. Cost) was 34,289. He offered me the "FFP" (which is the family and friend price---I am neither) and that was 33,946. He said bottom line price, including chrysler fee and dealership fee would be 34,000. Then I have the option of the 1000 rebate or 1.9% for 60 mos.

    I think it's a good deal from what I've been reading...any thoughts?
  • Looking for white Overland with saddle interior, V6. Anyone recommend where to go what to pay and best out there in Dallas area??? Not financing.
  • we are looking to buy exact same car over next few days. We are in Dallas. How did you get them down? They have loads of cars but don't seem as willing to deal. Where did you buy yours? We aren't financing and no trade in.

    Sounds good. Good luck.
