Buy a JK online?

This is my first thread so I apologize if I missed a step before posting. So I'm making the crossover from a Land Cruiser due to its performance this past winter. I've found some used JK Rubicon's with low miles online for a decent price. The only problem is I'm overseas right now and won't be back for a couple months. So I'm worried I may miss out on some good deals (if I can get the dealers down anyways). At the same time I don't feel 100% about buying a car without seeing it first. I've asked the dealers if they have any guarantee or warranty if there happens to be any problem. So while I'm waiting for a response I thought I would get some advice.

Thanks

Wire the money to my Nigerian account and I will buy the Jeep for you.

There will always be one year old product at a good discount so why worry now?

I would hold off, gas prices are on the rise and if they sustain at high levels very long you'll see lots of vehicles for cheaper prices.

That is some good points. And I'm not falling for the Nigerian account again!
Thanks

I recommend that you wait. You'll find something. Don't buy sight unseen. Although the only dealer I would trust would be Pat at Fields Chrysler Jeep.

The one thing I WOULDN'T buy online is a Wrangler. It's the one vehicle that you really need to inspect the transmission, suspension, etc.. You want to make sure they weren't driving it backwards at 30mph while drinking a six pack up Mount St. Helens.

Why? That just means it's "certified".

They will always be around & if you wait untill late in the year dealers are anxious to get rid of old stock so there are many bargains out there. I would never buy a vehicle site unsean, there are a lot of things you can't see in pic's & if a vehicle has been knocked around it may not be noticable untill it's to late. Be patient it really is the best way this time or you could be setting yourself up for a big dissapointment

Yup, a used Wrangler is not something you want to buy sight unseen.
Even the Nigerian's won't touch it..

I'm buying mine unseen, but it's brand new.
