Shh, don't tell anyone, but TJ's are better

Good luck on the purchase!! Stick to your price range and let them take it or leave it.

Where in Miami? I live in Miami (I'm 20) and bought a new 2012, put down a nice amount, and at 5.9% I am paying around $275 a month for 6 years, which is what I wanted to go for. I bought mine at Arrigo Sawgrass.

I looked at a used 2009 and they wanted $321 a month for the same term at double the interest rate. Sometimes buying new is better.

4K will definitely work but most likely it will be around $300 a month depending on interest.


That's another thing, I think every time your credit is checked it drops a point or so.

I'm looking for $330-350 a month.

For auto inquiries, if you do credit pulls during a two week period, it only counts as one inquiry.

Amie, I noticed in a previous post, you stated that you wanted the Sport S, because of the A/C, however you can get the A/C on the regular Sport model and save yourself about $1,500. The only other thing that comes with the "S" is the shiny chrome (Blech) shifter knobs and the 5-spoke aluminum wheels.

Yeah, I only just need A/C. Miami is too hot to be without. LOL
The wheels add a nice touch, but I plan on changing tires/wheels anyway.

For a little more you can get a new one with the 3.6 V6 which is a nicer motor than the 3.8 V6. Actually I paid that exact amount for my 2012 plus taxes.

Also, I have a Sport and the only option is A/C. Arrigo didn't have the JK without A/C.

Here's a before and after so you can see it doesn't matter if you get a Sport or Sport S.

God, I love that color.

Arrigo is offering $24616 + tags. This is without my trade in. I need to drop that on him. My trade in is valued between $3500-$4000. I'm gonna try to squeeze the tags in that price.

Thanks!

Was that offer for a Sport or Sport S, and 2 or 4 door?

If it is a 2 door Sport you can try lower.

This is very true. The 2010 Census indicates there are 3 good used car sales people in the country. So, you have a chance.

I want to point out that I saw some folks suggesting a 6 year loan on a 5 year old, $16k used car with 55k+ miles? I've seen some bad ideas, but that one is near the top. No way, no how. If you have to take a 6 year loan on a USED car, you flat out can't afford it and need to look for something cheaper. You will be buried in the loan until the car is paid off, all the while racking up even more mileage and even more costly service intervals. No way, no how. Hopefully banks aren't stupid enough to loan on terms like this anyway.

Oh they will, with 100% interest. They'll make so much on interest in the first couple of years that it doesnt matter if you pay it off or not.

I'll probably never own another car besides my JK anyway. Sick of buying cars from jerks.

I personally would not even consider an 07 2wd for any more than maybe $10k, and probably not even then.
