2010 Sport deal...

Hey folks,

I've found a 2010, 2 door Sport, soft top with a manual trans in really nice shape with 45,000 miles on it for $18,800 ODT.

It's a certified pre owned which adds two years to the drive train warranty and also gives it a 3 month/3,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty.

Thoughts on that price and that year Wrangler and one other thing.

It has an Infinity sub woofer in the back, does that mean it has the upgraded Infinity stereo?

Thanks...

How can it be certified over the factory 36k warranty?

BUY NEW! You can get a new 2013 or 2014 sport model for around 22,000. Better engine than the 2010. Just my 2 cents

My 0.02$ buy new.. not that much more, and new pentastar engine is worth the price difference IMHO.

I have seen new Sports here with zero options for $19.5. Buy new, swap the stereo to something that sounds way better, buy some S package wheels/tires for $500 and you're good to go.

The base MSRP on a Sport is $22,295 and a Sport S (which is what OP is looking at) is $24,595. So $19,500 is seriously discounted off of MSRP - that's got to be close to cost for the dealer. That's a rare deal, but it isn't impossible to obtain, especially since the model years are switching right now (get a 2013 that has been sitting for over 100 days). Of course, with this route, you probably won't get everything that you're looking for.

I think that a lot of this comes down to what options you want. That's where the price really skyrockets. My Jeep was around $28,000 new and it's pretty modestly equipped. Remember that the base Sport does not come with Air Conditioning, power windows, power locks, etc. The Jeep you're looking at has upgraded wheels, running boards, stereo, etc. 2010 was the last year for the first interior, so you won't get the interior that comes with the new models. I'm not sure how much that matters to you though. Also, there is the engine difference.

Jeeps don't depreciate quite as fast as other vehicles, but they still depreciate. As soon as you drive a new Jeep off the lot, you take a major hit. That's what happens with any new car. Maximum depreciation is going to be at around 2-3 years old with 20,000 to 60,000 miles on the odometer, depending on the vehicle. So you'd be buying that Jeep at maximum depreciation, which means that you'll get the most vehicle per dollar (considering what was originally paid for it, what you'll be paying for it, and what it will sell for a few years from now).

My take: How much value do you place on options and getting exactly what you want? You'll have a lot more to choose from with the used route, the bottom line won't be quite as expensive, you'll take advantage of depreciation, and the Jeep will be ready to go from day one. On the other hand, how much do you value owning a brand new vehicle? Is it more important than options and color, for example? Do you very much prefer the new engine and interior? If so, you may have to look around for a while, but going new may not be a bad idea.

Regardless, that price is pretty fair for the Jeep in question. If you can talk them down at all, it'd be a home run. But if not, it's still a fair buy.

With any used vehicle that you're considering, try entering it into the AutoTrader TIM and see what value comes up. Most dealers will pay a little more than the value listed on the TIM and then invest some money into the vehicle as well (fixing door dings, oil change, new tires, etc.). So that will give you a general idea of what the dealer paid for / has invested in the vehicle. With this particular Jeep, if you can get within $1,000 to $2,000 of the number that AutoTrader gives you, you've got yourself a good buy. I'm guessing that Jeep will come up with a value in the mid $16,000s to low $17,000s. If that's the case, $18,800 is probably within that $2,000 range and $17,800 would be a really nice buy.

I guess I don't understand your question.

It's Certified Pre Owned By Jeep. It extends the drivetrain warranty to 7 years/100,000 miles (from 5 years/100,000 miles) from date of original sale and gives it a 3 month/3,000 mile bumper to bumper from date of current purchase.

LOL, if you do the math I'd still be looking at $23-24K after wheels, tires, a stereo and the options this one has.

I can't afford that.

Than that's your answer.
My take: if you can get the same interest rate as new (I did), it's in great shape (looks like it), and the price would allow you to either get into a Jeep or into a Jeep with more options, than great. One caveat: though the 10's are supposed to be reliable, they still have quirks. I had my heater core replaced last December and it's currently in for a carrier bearing. Make sure you save some money for the eventual repair.

Good luck, and let us know what happens.

This Jeep's got all the options I want. I don't want power windows and all that. I also don't have to have the latest and greatest, nor can I afford it. This thing has plenty of power for what I would be using it for and is in great condition and runs great...

They won't budge on the price as they just reduced it from what they were asking. I've looked high and low on CL and autotrader.com and this really seems to be a good deal. KBB on this thing is like $22,000 before tax. The $18,800 is out the door.

I want to add, I am not trying to challenge any of you. Just trying to get the facts straight. I will take all into consideration.

I totally appreciate the feedback...I didn't get one response on another Jeep forum...

Thanks all!!

Don't just test drive it a block or two. Take it for a decent drive and if it feels right, go for it. Look it over good and make sure it hasn't been wrecked. Good luck, I hope it works out for you. Let us Know what happens.

Mine was going through about 1 quart between oil changes, 5k miles. Out seems to have slowed down/disappeared with this last oil change, where I used Valvoline Max Life. Some people claim the formula works well with the Jeep.

You might not have any burning, though. Many don't.

Yeah, I did. I took it for a long ride, on the freeway too. I then brought it back, took the top down and took it out again.

The Jeep seems to be in great shape.

How about security? It's a soft top and I know there are some sh*tty folks out there. I mean I wouldn't be leaving anything of value in the Jeep but I worry about the stereo or the air bags, especially when I leave the top down and go into the gym or something.

Anyone have any issues? I mean if I can't take it anywhere, what's the point?

I live in southern NH, and I don't worry about anything stock, even running naked.
