Can't tell ya what model to getm only your budget can decide that... Living in NY, I would say a hard top is a must!!! I would also think twice about leaseing these days, especially a Wrangler, they hold their value too good not to buy one...

I would think the x model would be just fine. If it's a lease, you probably can't take it off road, so you don't need a rubicon. Whatever options are on the inside that you like is what I would take. BTW, the hard top is nice!

Look hard at what you are going to do with it and at the time frame of the lease. You did not list any budgets or anything which is normal, though for those who have a lot of personal assetts and income leasing is really the way to go when you can. It may not make sense in a Wrangler though. They really DO hold their value and based on the nature of the vehicle you tend to do bad things to violate leases and end up buying it/trading it anyhow.

As for whether or not you are feeling ripped off we haven't got nearly enough information. Their asking prices, the year, model, and options you are looking at, etc. are all needed to figure out what the market value in your area is.

Also, upstate NY vs. the city will have a lot to do with whether or not you have to have a hard top.

thanks for trying to help...I guess i just have leased for the last twenty years and i like the new car thing every 3 years..but if you think i should buy it i will take that into consideration...I am about an hour North of NYC

One place offered me a lease ...2009 Sahara with soft top for 300 a month for 36 months at 12,000 miles a year..with 2200 down(taxes,security,1st month,destination)..

I am going to try a few more jeep dealers and let you all know the best price...

Right there with ya.

My new Jeep (2010 Sahara 4DR Unlimited) is a lease, and my 2nd lease to boot. I, like you enjoy having a new and usually different vehicle every 2-4 years. In fact, I'm 39 and have NEVER had a vehicle longer then 3.5 years.

I leased my Jeep, a $32,000 vehicle for about $500.00/month. No way a standard finance would be near that payment.

BTW, if you happen to have an iPhone let me know. I came across a great lease mileage tracker app.

Regards
David

If your not going off road often theres no problem with leasing one. Jeeping is all about making your Jeep fit your lifestyle. Not everyone needs one lifted to the moon. I have a 09 Sahara that is fixed up with a lift and some wheels and tire but nothing overkill and it's my wifes daily driver. I can take it off road or drive it on a trip comfortably. If a stock Wrangler fits you then there is not much use in going with a Rubicon. I'd consider a X model if I were leasing. Good Luck!

My thought here is you got hosed!!!! I bought my o9 Shahara in April that list for a tick over 32K and my payments are 450.00 per month and I over pay that!!

If you buy a jeep and only put say 1K down and sell it after three years, you will NOT be upside down. If you lease, not only do you put out 2-3K down up front that you piss away, but you have nothing when you unload the lease. It is a lose-lose as far as a jeep goes. Now, I am only talking the Wrangler here, no other vehicles...

I have the Rubicon and it is still pretty much stock. I take it out on the trail as often as I can but don't go way out if you know what I mean. If dollars are not of a concern and you want to have a fun jeep right out of the box, I'd get a Rubicon. After a year and a half of ownership I still have fun playing with all the buttons and levers in particular situations. My most interesting moment was when the tow truck driver showed up after I broke the transfer case linkage and laughed at me when I showed him were the jeep was stuck! He said I'm not driving my tow rig in there! A fellow four wheeler pulled me out and all was better. Even that experience was fun. Learned a lot about how to help myself in the process.

72 months at 0% including tax, tag, and title??? Either that or you put a solid chunk of cash down... General rule of thumb is if you can't buy it within 36-48 months you need to re-evaluate how much you need it.

The only thing I put down is my first payment.

How many years is your finance and what did you put down. Financing 32,000 for 72 and a decent rate of 6% is 530.00.

My payment is a less and in 4 years I do have something to show, more money in the bank because I've spent less and another new vehicle.

I'm not saying a lease is right for everybody, but it's not necessarily wrong either. It just depends on one's needs and wishes.

Sounds as if you have lost reality! I went 60 on the jeep, as well as my truck, paid cash for my Scion. My truck stickered for a little over 50K and while I can go 36-48 months, Why. With interest rated as low as they are, and my truck and jeep will be kept for awhile, i might as well lower payments. I have NEVER been upside down on a vehicle.

32,000 - $1k = 31,000
31,000 / 60 = $516 at 0% interest...

How did you manage to finance that amount at $450? Is that including tax, tag, title, and such?

Are you talking about sticker price of $32k? No one has paid anything close to sticker for the last couple years. The last few months dealerships are just about giving away vehicles.

Here is a question for those who are shopping for regular vehicles (IE: ones they may not be taking off to bash around in the woods):

Why is it much better to lease a car if you make over $100k a year have a lot of personal assetts, and can write a check than if you make $50k a year and can't?

Well, if ya read what I type, I said 32K was sticker price... Not trying to start a pissing match, just stating that I think leasing a Jeep is not the best idea becasue of the great re-sale. I just turned in an 07 Mazda CX-7 when I got the Jeep. I leased the Mazda since I had no clue of the resale, good thing I did, value of it was in the toilet for a 3 yr old vehicle with only 10K miles on it. I would have lost my ass if I had bought that thing. My Diesel truck has great resale, so it made sense to buy, my Scion was cheap enough (under 20K) to just pay cash for. Now, I own my own business, so no matter what I do, these are all write offs for me... kind of helps...

So you want to rent a jeep for a few years.. lol I leased a truck once.. never again.. Go buy a used one for what you will end up paying for the leased one and own it.

Formula, got it. Diesel trucks (2500's, 3500's, etc.) are usually ones you want to keep until they drop which is, say, around the year 2800. <grin>

In the case of someone who owns their own business and does fairly well leasing may make more sense than you think. Not only is it a write-off, but it's the legal protection that those with higher incomes and assetts can take advantage of. There is a reason t leasing companies have been screaming (unsuccessfully) for many years to have a significant Tort reform.

I usually advocate buying a 1 year old 6-12k mile vehicle. You get the best of both worlds, nearly new vehicle with most of the original warranty (or more than original if you get a certified one), the bulk of the initial resale value has been adjusted, etc. Sometimes you get really lucky and make a killer score on a car, truck, bike, etc.

Another advantage to buying something like a Jeep vs. leasing is that you can also do any of the mods you want to without having to worry about making the leasing company happy. There are a lot of cars that don't have any concerns (say, a Toyota Camry where mods are basically wheels and window tint), but on something like a Wrangler where you have several companies with full catalogues designed to leave your wallet empty and your mind begging for more.... hehe.

Depends on how the business is set up... I am an S-corp. So, when I buy stuff, I put it in my own name and lease it to the company in essence. That way myself and my toys are protected...
