    How do you like your 07' Rubicon? Did you get a decent deal if you don't mind me asking?

    I ordered our 2008 Sahara.

    Dealer said that buying a 2007 off the lot would have meant having to pay MSRP. She suggested that ordering would be a better deal. She offered $750 over dealers invoice.

    We ended up agreeing on $500 over invoice. All options were at dealers invoice also. They said 13-14 weeks before the jeep would arrive. We can't wait! :)

    We leased ,signing in November .Car delivered in January. Price that was used was $26,000 which was way under MSRP .We put $1800 down and pay $449.52 per month for 36 months . We get 18,000 miles per year. :shades:

    If people are ordering 08's now then why aren't their 08' ordering sheet (with prices) listed anywhere?

    Perhaps because there's no urgency at the moment.

    The dealer doesn't care, he'll take whatever allocation he can get. He's not worried that a few hundred dollar increase will kill sales.

    The customer doesn't care, as he can always walk away if he thinks the price is too high when the vehicle arrives. As most of these deals are $X over invoice, or below MSRP, he has an indication of whether he's getting a good deal or not.

    I know it might be irritating to you, but the figures will be available soon enough.

    When my 08 Sahara arrives at the dealership in early August(hopefully), due to ship the 25th..........My deal was $500 over invoice, so the dealer will present me with the paperwork for my jeep & add $500 to the invoice...If the price of the 08's went up, so be it, as long as they stick to our original deal there will not be a problem, if they do not, there will be a problem(at that point I can walk away, although I'd rather not))....Will keep anyone who's interested informed........I do wish there was some info. on the 08's though........

    It's always interesting to compare the base prices on hot selling vehicles. The auto mfg's are real good at passing subliminal increases throughout the year. With the production mix highly in favor of the 4-door Wrangler (vs the 2-door) I wonder if this will entail better pricing possibilities for we 2-door enthusiasts in 08'?

    Have any gut "guesstimates" on this issue?

    I'd like to know how it goes when your '08 arrives.

    I just ordered our '08 at $500 over invoice. The dealer assured me that the pricing would not change from '07. I am still not sure that I believe her. We are expecting it to arrive in late September/early October.

    Really your best bet is to find a dealer that will work with you on a factory order. Some will, some won't, but it's an easy deal for both sides if you can agree on a price related to invoice.

    I've no idea what the price change will be, but if you want a 2 door and the MSRP/invoice goes up a few hundred bucks will it stop you buying one?
    Make the best deal you can and enjoy the vehicle........the '09s won't be any cheaper. ;)

    I don't believe anyone unless I know them personally. And I'm not castigating auto dealers but it seems that the truth is a vanishing act in life today does it not?
  • printzprintz Posts: 70
    My dealer told me the same thing about the price really not changing on the 08's(especially the 2 door, I still have the printout for the 07 jeep I originally ordered, so i'll know right off the bat if there was any price change on the 08's)............
    Will let you know what happens when it comes in.....What model did you order???.........
  • lasse06lasse06 Posts: 7
    We ordered 2 door Sahara with HardTop.

    We are really looking forward to getting it in. We were told 13-14 weeks from when we ordered it last week. But, hopefully it will arrive sooner.

    I'm interested in an 08' Rubicon (2-door) version. Appreciate your input as always.

    Chrysler announced today ALL Chrysler products now come with a lifetime drive train warranty. Seeing how Chrysler owns Jeep would they included in this warranty program?
  • kgabehurtkgabehurt Posts: 84
    A new Jeep purchased today and beyond would fall under the program. Is what I was told from the Detroit news writer that detailed this latest warranty program. Great news for the original buyer. Subsequent sales of the auto which is less than 3 years old, the new buyer would receive a new 3 year warranty.
  • mac24mac24 Posts: 3,910
    Yes, definitely covers Jeeps, though no diesels, vehicles used for commercial purposes, or SRTs.

    Vehicle has to be returned to an approved dealer for an inspection every five years within sixty days of the warranty starting date.

    Of course it remains to be seen how long Chrysler will be around to service the warranty, and what happens if Chrysler sells off Jeep is anybodys guess.

    My very same thoughts.

    Yep! We looked around and there was nothing in the immediate area even close to what we wanted and they knew it. I know this is weird but I actually felt I saved money. I'm not big on having to pay like this but my wife was looking at Volvos, Land Rovers and some other "crossovers" that were in the 35 to 40+ thousand range. I would have liked to wait until the "craze" died down but I'm, minimum, 6-7,000 less by paying full on the Jeep. So far we do love it. I was out with the soft top down in 75 degree weather and it doesn't get any better.
