Only 5 gallons when I took delivery here too. First time I've bought a new vehicle (and I've bought over 25 in my life) that it wasn't a full tank.
Frustrating? Yeah, but in the big picture, it's not a big deal. I'd rather put quality fuel in it instead of the crap they put in it anyway. (I watched him drive it to the "cheap crap gas station" before he delivered it.)
2013 Commando Green JK Rubicon
Remember - sometimes, the advice you get on the Internet is worth exactly what you paid for it!
My 2011 JK was full when I drove it off the lot for the first time. My wife and I bought an 09' Volkswagen that same year (certified used), and it had a full tank too. Used or new, if the dealer wants you to come back, this is just a good policy to have.
They ship from the factory with 5 gallons. Thats why its on the invoice. Thats on every jeep invoice. It could potentially cause a weight problem in shipping, a full truckload of jeeps with full tanks would have 160 gallons onboard....
A salesman a while back told me that they have all their cars on the lot on empty usually because people try to siphon gas out of the cars at night. Every dealer in my area has the cars on empty, unless they are recent trade ins and the previous owner left a lot in it...
If the dealer fills it up, youre paying for it. Chances are youre paying about 400 for "pre delivery prep". It better be full then....
I bought a motorcycle from a local dealer the other week and they even filled it up. With 3 gallons of gas......lol.
Everytime i have ever posted, its always bull that comes out of me
I bought mine a few weeks ago and even requested them to add gas. It was a test drive and take it home that night kind of deal. However, they failed to add gas and sent me home on empty. I was a little annoyed about that....
I purchased my 13 in April. Walked off the lot over about $800. They called me back and said they would give me what I wanted. I said I would think about it and call them back in the morning. They called back the next morning, gave me the $800 off the price and gave me $300 more for my trade. I told them I would take it and get over when I had the chance. When I got there, no Jeep! I asked where it was and the salesperson said they were filling the tank. It was the only thing I didn't have to negotiate! That was Pearson in Richmond, VA.
took delivery of my 2014 about a month ago. Was very surprised to see a 100% full tank. My dealer takes care of us. That's why my brother, my sister and law, my best friend, and myself have all purchased vehicles from them.
Bought my Oscar Mike in December, it had a full tank. My wife's Sahara should be on the lot in 2 weeks, hopefully that will have a full tank as well. When I bought my daughter a used car from the local Toyota dealership when she graduated high school, it came with a little more than a quarter of a tank. When I asked the salesman, he stated a full tank of gas is only something they do for new vehicles.
i had to pay 50$ and they paid the rest which came up to 65-70$ ( yeah almost 120$ to fill up in canada ) i thought that was ridicules because i never paid for a tank of gas before and i bought many cars !!
