    I've got some research to do.

    Thanks again.

    My suggestion is to find the best price you can online. Just make sure that it's a real jeep warranty. Then ask your dealer to match that price. If he says no, just buy it online.

    Good luck.

    This is really more to jettatrouble: I tend to agree with verdugo as well, go with Jeep/Chrysler, most of the 3rd party warrantly companies are questionable. However as I posted two days ago, if you have concerns about the Jeep/Chrysler company longetivity (course then why would you buy a Jeep?!) or even a future purchaser company like GM or others backing up the warranty, since it's pretty obvious Cerebus WILL sell them to someone else, WAIT a few years to your 3/36k limit. You'll get a better idea then how you vehicle is holding out quality-wise by then too.

    I paid $540 for the added care 7/70 $100 ded (major components only) a year ago 10/07 on my Jeep, mainly to get the option for a free loaner car while in service, roadside assistance, and loaner when traveling since I am using my vehicle for winter trips down south. I will decide before 3/36 if I want to upgrade it to Max care.

    As a comparison I paid a negotiated $900 3/07 to add the Max care (7/70 $100 ded) plan on my 2004 Chrysler 300M - that was on top of the 7/70 powertrain they already put on that vehicle. In 18 mons I only have had 1 warranty service which saved me $700. It's hard to compare a 300M to a 4WD Jeep which does have higher maintenance costs but the 300M has a lot more luxury stuff than my Jeep Laredo. I'd guess your $1090 Max is in the range of my $540 Added had I gone to that, I don't remember what they quoted but I do know for $2000 they offered a LIFETIME Max care!

    PS-gas just dropped to $2.12, bet we won't have that in 6 months, unfortunately.

    Can you tell us if you completed the sale. Also, where did you get this deal I would like to get one like this.
  • I'm about to sign off on a 2008 GC Laredo Rocky Mountain with MyGIG, V8, Power Sunroof and sound upgrade....MSRP is $35995....with incentives and negoiation I was able to get the dealer to $25000.00. I believe he has a little more left but it seems like a decent deal...any thoughts?
    Also....I thought the Rocky edition came with leather but this does not? Any feedback would be much appreciated.
  • Was in a dealership this past weekend and for a 2008 GC Limited with 5.7L Hemi was quoted $28.5K, $499/month lease before taxes and fees. Sticker price was 41K. Does anyone have a sense as to whether this is a decent deal or not.

    Can anyone give me a sense as to where I can negotiate down to on a 2008 Laredo X in current market conditions>?
  • Hey Everyone,

    I'm looking to get into a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo with X Package in Red Rock on Black Interior. I've been quoted a Price of $19,500 after all rebates and discounts. Do you think this is a good deal.

    And I've also been quoted a price of $1665 for the Lifetime Max Care Warranty. Is that a good deal?

    Thanks for the help.

    What are the MSRP and Invoice prices including the rebates?
  • naatz1naatz1 Posts: 188
    Does it have the 6 or 8? Knowing the list/retail price would be good but assuming it's 4WD that seems like a very good deal. However be sure you have proof that the Lifetime Maxcare Service has an insurance plan backed by your state just in case Chrysler would go belly up. They are supposed to at least in my state (MN) but when I called the Chrylser 800 number all they could tell me is "yes I am covered" but did not know who the insurer is. Backed by Chrysler LLC does not cut it if they are gone especially into Chapter 7 liquidation. I sent them an email but no reply yet so if the government loans hit impass in early December I may take my dealers offer to get my $500+ back (you can see in earlier posts I purchased the AddedCare a year ago but still have 24 mons to go before I'd even need it ... another interesting question is who backs up a 3/36 warranty or the lifetime powertrain when the company is gone). I am not optimistic unless both Chrysler gives concessions and the USGov wakeup to stop the craziness.
  • Thanks for the info on the warranty. I'll definately ask the dealer about that now since i'm in NY.

    The MSRP on the car is $35,750 for a 4WD 3.7 Liter V6. I'm getting 10,500 in rebates with balloon financing and Employee Pricing.

    I'm going to be picking up the car this week and hope this helps other people get a good deal.
  • Just purchased a 08 GC Limited with an MSRP of $40,250 for $26,250 plus doc fee of $299.00. Dealer only had 3 other 08's left.
  • Go to (For Owners section) and call the number to purchase the extended warranty.....they are quoting 50% off retail and giving 12 months to pay it off (interest free). This is the cheapest you will see the LIfetime Maxcare ($100 Ded).

    Sounds like there are some smoking deals on the '08's! Imagine paying those prices 2 years ago.

    I'm hoping there will be similar deals on the '09's come April.
  • Hi RonaldC,

    Where did you get this deal?
  • Kelly Jeep in Lynnfield, Ma
  • Better Deal Found:

    2008 GC Limited 4x4. MSRP $39,755 less total discounts of $15,398 net cost $24,357. I believe this includes a $750 lease loyalty. The vehicle is Red with the trailer tow pkg. Can be found at Quirk Jeep in Quincy, MA . May be the last 08 limited
  • paulepaule Posts: 382
    Brand new? It isn't a dealer demo or anything like that, is it?
  • dandgdandg Posts: 91
    I just bought a used,04 GC Limited and am considering buying the 7/70 power train warranty but wonder if Chry will not be able to back it up when they go bankrupt.Its only 150 but doubt any warrenty is going to be valid if the go chapt 11.
  • paulepaule Posts: 382
    Nice. That's truly a remarkable price!
  • paulepaule Posts: 382
    It's interesting to see the difference in incentives in different areas.

    NH has $3,250 off '09 Grand Cherokees where CO only has $1,000 off and AZ has $1,500.

    These are on '09's. I also noticed they have significantly different incentives on the '08's in different parts of the country.
  • Here in MA discounts on 09's total $7250 plus &750 lease loyalty.
  • paulepaule Posts: 382
    You mean '08's; right?
  • NY appears to be deep discounting the '08s.
    Several dealers are selling $32k MSRPs (base models) for $15,999 - $16,999.
    Some increase it by the $750 lease loyalty....but that is it.
  • Hi- I am looking for a 2008 and am near NY. Can you tell what dealers?
  • No. 2009. Example: MSRP $33,050 Rebate $2500; Y.E. Bonus $2000: Auto Show Rebate $500: Discount $3,085. Net
    price $24,965. Discount includes $750 lease loyalty.
  • I just went to the dealer in North East Pennsylvania. I was looking at a 2008 Grand Cherokee x package. The MSRP was $35,200.00 they said the best they could do after all the discounts was $25,000.00 What is your opinion on how much I should pay for this vehicle? Also, if anyone knows of any Dealships in the NewYork or Phila area that are motivated to sell an X package let me know I am only 2hrs away and have no problem driving to get a good deal.


    Al :blush:

    Thanks. That's great information to have. I should be able to get a pretty good deal come April.

    Dude 25,000 after taxes.. If you continue to shop that price I would be surprised if you find better today but unsure what will happen if you wait until Jan to by an 08.. Mine is a long story but I paid 27,600 after taxes not including that extended warranty ( which added some cost ) which I think I am canceling and some document cost.. My truck laredo 2008 BRAND new with 26x package brand also they are giving me 700 back to put toward left over lease payments on my prior jeep.. Just keep shopping which I did not do for a couple of reasons, go to many places, pick same car dont tell each what other is offering and see what happens.. If there a 2008 26xpkg for 22,000 after taxes if would be surprised.... If someone is finding that they should say where .

    Just registered on consumerreports website and you can pay 14.95 to get what they call bottom line car pricing.. Now I know with all this US car manufacturer stuff going on there are great deals if you are smart which I was not completly.. BUT here is what it says for what they are calling Consumer Reports CR bottom line cost for 2008 grand cherokee 4x4 23085 WITHOUT 26x package, the 26x package invoice is over 3000.00 so do the have to add this to the 23k IF you dont work on the deal with at least 2 finanace managers in at least 2 differents places you are doing yourself a disservice good luck keep me posted.. If you got a 2008 with 26x package for 25K even before taxes I think U are doing OK
